-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA512 One another think that annoys me really often and more and more, are applications that steal focus from the window that has the focus.
There are a few applications that should be allowed to do so. Namely pinentry, screensavers. I cannot think of more. All others should not even have the right to do it. It is just dangerous. And there are very bad players all around. On the first place is firefox (iceweasel). It not even steals focus all around, it also disregards placing policy all over the place. There is already some fvwm configuration to stop most of the stupid thinks. One other that annoys me often is my jabber application, psi (Don't think others are better). When it starts up it steals the focus often from a window where I currently type in a password logging in to some site. Something completely opposite is some wine applications that refuses to take focus even if you have to type in something. Using lenience style helps here. That comes to the point I would make. What makes application (framework) programmers to be such stupid and completely ignoring users desires? In the current days that seems to be some kind of sport. Gnome is only the leading end with that. I think we should have a list of blame for such applications. Including configurations for fvwm to work around them and give the control back to the user.
