Description Stefan Jensen 2008-06-29 22:12:44 UTC
Description of problem:

When i use the configured shortcut to show up tilda, i have to move the mouse to
the tilda window an click it first to start typing.

My suggestion is, that tilda gets the focus on activation (using the shortcut).
This would it more usefully, i think.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. start tilda
2. use shortcut, while another window has the focus
3. try typing
Actual results:

tilda does not get the focus and the typing is showed up in the window with the
current focus.

Expected results:

tilda gets the focus on activation and the typing is showed up in the tilda window.

hm...i'm afraid that it works well on mine.
So, i'm currently unable to reproduce your error :(

did you have the same trouble on previous release ?

Comment 2 Stefan Jensen 2008-07-04 16:55:32 UTC
I just checked out, that it works (tilda gets the focus) when i initially start
tilda and using the shortcut for the first time. Next time when i use the
shortcut again, it doesn't work and tilda get not the focus. When i restart
tilda, it works again only one time.

I check later today, if an older version behaves this way too.


Comment 3 Stefan Jensen 2008-07-08 19:35:55 UTC
ok, i tried the older version (tilda-0.9.5-1.fc8). It behaves as above, too.

It seems to conflicts with compiz, if i disable compiz it works like expected.

So maybe move this to a compiz bug?

best regards

could you try with this release update : tilda-0.9.6-1.fc9
will be pushed to testing soonish.

It shipped with a bug fix on focus trouble with metacity-2.22.
