Code: Select all
gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/metacity/general/focus_mode mouse
gconftool-2 --type boolean --set /apps/metacity/general/auto_raise true
gconftool-2 --type int --set /apps/metacity/general/auto_raise_delay 450
That worked like magic, instantly correcting what has been for decades, "broken" functionality.
I REALLY need to have that back. There's nothing so frustrating as having the focus follow my mouse, but have the newly focused window NOT raise to the top. I'm typing in a terminal window, and my cursor and typed text disappears behind the previously focused window. Very annoying.
Can Anyone Help?!
Thank You To Someone With An Answer They Know Works. (Sorry for seeming harsh, but I've read so many posts in several other threads that seem to be what I'm looking for, only to find that the posters; all of them, want the functionality I'm seeing now. Really, it's not that hard to break it so it works wrong, like no "Auto Raise".)
