Hello, I am the maintainer of the Slint distribution: http://slint.fr http://slackware.uk/slint/x86_64/slint-testing/
This distribution includes, among others WMs/DEs, as standalone FVWM 2.6.7 window manager associated to lxpanel, and also a LXDE desktop with FVWM 2.6.7 instead of Openbox as window manager. The upcoming version 14.2.1 will be accessible to visually impaired users in graphical environments through text to speech and/or a braille device, using mainly the brltty and Orca software. Actually we have two config files, ~/.fvwm/config.others and ~/.fwmm/config.lxde, ~/.fvwm/config being used to choose which one to use, with ust theses two lines: Test (EnvMatch DESKTOP_SESSION LXDE) Read config.lxde Test (!EnvMatch DESKTOP_SESSION LXDE) Read config.others After preliminary tests, I received this feedback from a blind user (in CC): > - LXDE, FVWM and TWM have problems giving focus to the opened windows. > When I start programs like Pluma or Wm-logout for example, I get the > message, "GTK Accessibility Module initialized," but the programs' > windows don't get focus and I'm unable to use them. So, she would like that when she types a command that creates a window, or select an application menu entry (e.g. from the application menu plugged in lxpanel), this window be always given the focus. Some examples of applications associated to such windows: - a logout dialog - a run dialog - firefox or thunderbird - geany or pluma Of course the application itself has to be accessible, this not the point here. I have read the man page an especially the options of the style command to find how I could always give the focus to the a window what just popped up, including what is written under: Grabbing the focus when a new window is created  But didn't find the right commands to get this result. Of course in this context moving the mouse above a window or clicking in it is not realistic, so I am looking for a solution that does not need to use a mouse. Any clue appreciated. Best, Didier  English is not my native language, so it may just be that I don't understand the options.
