Thread: Problems with window tabs..

    Default Problems with window tabs..

    Heya,

    I'm experiencing a very annoying problem with my computer running OpenSUSE 11.1 64bit.

    I use matlab (unix version) for my master thesis. I start matlab using the shell:

    Code:
    matlab
    Now I have two windows open: the shell and matlab's main window. To do my programming in matlab I need to open the editor. So I have 3 seperate windows open now: the shell, matlab main and matlab editor. So I start out having 3 window tabs in the bar at the buttom, that also shows time and desktops.

    After just a few minutes of working. This will be reduced to two windows: The shell and a matlab thingy. I can easily [ALT] + [TAB] between all three windows. After a few minutes of further working. The two tabs are reduced to 1: The shell. I can still [ALT] + [TAB] between all three windows. And when doing so the window manager shows that I have three windows open. The bar at the buttom just doesn't reflect this fact. I can technically still work just fine. But I realise that I spend a lot of energy and time being annoyed by this, so I need to fix this.

    I actually find this very annoying as I then quickly loose my overview of whats going on.

    I have no clue on how to fix this, and so I haven't researched the problem yet. I don't know where to start.

    Best regards,

    Hello Daqar,

    It's a very strange problem.
    But can you tell us which desktop manager you use.
    This will make it easier to find the source of the problem.

    Best of luck!

    Oh yeah, of course...

    I use Gnome and Compiz/desktop effects.

    This will not help your problem as such but you can get ride of the console window if you start metlab with

    metlab &

    this start it in a new thread and you can close the console.

    leave it off, maybe ?

    you can still do everything but . . . but . . . but, what can not do
    without it? write letters? read/write email? browse? download/listen
    to music/movies? run a spread sheet or database? design a web site?
    process photos? talk on Skype? chat? facbook? twitter? watch online
    TV/radio? play games? run simulations of nuclear detonations? edit a
    movie? calculate the trajectory of a rocket?

    what normal computer functions stops working when you turn off desktop
    effects?

    palladium, some people tend to try to fix a problem, that's what this forum is about. Even though you could type an email without a running X-server...

    @Daqar: what version of Compiz are you running and which repositories do you use?
