2008-01-05 Thread Thomas Thurman
Well, 1) it's not really my call, I just hack the window manager; this is something the HIG people need to figure out. But 2) notificationisation and minimisation appear to me to be functionally very similar and I don't see why they should both be supported 3) if only one of them is supported

Thank you for your bug report! The keystroke ctrl-S causes searching in a treeview widget when that widget is focussed. You can change this in the keyboard preferences window for the whole of GNOME. This has nothing to do with Metacity, incidentally. ** Changed in: metacity (Ubuntu)

Hello. Can you confirm whether this bug occurs when you are running some other window manager? For example, if you are running kwin or icewm? (If you don't know how to test with kwin: if you don't already have kwin, you can get it by opening a terminal and typing sudo apt-get install kwin, then

It looks like it's not Metacity-specific, yes. The trouble now is trying to figure what it is! If it's affecting both OpenOffice *and* WINE, I'd guess it's a problem with your X server, but that's just a guess. (I only do window managers, so this is a bit beyond my knowledge.) -- window manager

This is not, as far as I can see, a Metacity problem. Compiz is failing to start because it sees another compositor is running. I am not closing the metacity bug here because I may be wrong, but I will check when I'm less immediately busy. ** Also affects: compiz (Ubuntu) Importance: Undecided

Metacity won't fix this because: 1) it's not a window manager issue; applications ought to be responsible enough to create their windows where they want them; 2) it violates separation of concerns; there can be a separate process (such as devilspie) which moves a user's windows around to their
