then i'm not sure. e is compositing so the screensaver window will be
composited but if these notifications are actual windows placed on to the this
window by the apps (i know chromium does its own popups itself with its own
windows), thus composited on top, or if they are really below and e is just
mistakenly setting the evas objects on top, i don't know unless you can click
on them. that would tell me what is going on.

i haven't used xscreensaver for well over a decade and tbh it's untested with e
as there are gotchas with screensaver windows and they conflict with e's own
lock screen handling etc. so tbh my advice is "don't use it" as it conflicts. i
could explain the tricky bits of screensaver windows but it's x11 lower level
fun stuff and you'll know why there is a conflict when you know that
compositors use the screensaver overlay window as well as xscreensaver
(necessary to force compositor content on top, but this begins to break apart
when you have external old-school screensavers like xscreensaver)).

I can't because xscreensaver stops the mouse cursor from moving away
from the unlock box.
So no one can interact with them, but they can see my private IM and
notification messages.

[e-users] new windows/notifications displaying on top of xscreensaver

2018-08-01 Thread Marc MERLIN
So, I'm still using xscreensaver (5.36-1)
On my work system, when new windows or notifications get displayed
(typically pidgin window, or chrome notification popup), they get displayed
on top of xscreensaver.

Is that xscreensaver's fault, or the window manager's fault?

Thanks,
Marc

+1

I was using it until it broke some years ago.  I think there's no maintainer 
for it.
