#1423 closed defect (fixed)

Present windows in non-active process

Reported by: alsroot Owned by: alsroot
Priority: Immediate Milestone:
Component: Sugar Version: 0.85.x
Severity: Critical Keywords: r+
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


For now, sugar code has several gtk.present() calls that don't work if the were invoked from another processes. Thats due to outdated timestamps:


  • open 1st window prcess(e.g. Browse)
  • from 2st process(e.g. shell) initiate window activating of 1st process(BrowseActivity.present())
  • it works fine if Browse's window hasn't gdk window but fails otherwise - last event in X was from 2st process, last event from 1st process was earlier, so calling present(thus gdk.focus()) for 1st process sends outdated timestamp and WM ignore present(focus) invoking
