Description luigi 2006-11-17 09:49:53 UTC
i have debian sid with compiz (0.2.2-1 from official repository and 3.2 from
git) installed.
when i try to minimize openoffice (2.0.4) that has in addition to main window
two other small windows (form tool and another one), i have a problem: compiz
minimizes only principal window and manages other windows as separate windows
(and so it doesn't minimize them with openoffice).
it happens also with other applications (ex: avidemux when it's encoding).
also, in gconf, i try to put all types of windows in minimize plugin but things
don't change.
same thing happens with beryl 0.1.1 and 0.1.2.

Comment 2 luigi 2006-11-21 03:21:18 UTC
I make a change to minimizeWindow function in window.c file and now minimize of
transient windows in openoffice works, but i don't now if my "patch" is right
and i don't know if it can create other problems.
my change is:

minimizeWindow (CompWindow *w)
if (!(w->actions & CompWindowActionMinimizeMask))


minimizeWindow (CompWindow *w)
if (!(w->actions | CompWindowActionMinimizeMask))

i make this, because, if i understand, CompWindowActionMinimizeMask define if
windows has or no button to minimize (or something similar) and openoffice
transient windows don't have this button so...

am i right or i say an unsense?

which is already fixed?

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.

Not sure about the dupe, but the bug is currently fixed with SVN Head
