    Question transparent-embedded gnome-terminal with devilspie

    I have a working trans.ds file and installed devilspie.
    It runs great, but the stickler is that if I "click off" or change application focus, I no longer can get the focus back to the terminal.

    The terminal window is responsive other than that.
    I can open a new tab, but I get no focus there either.

    Here's the trans.ds code
    Code:
    ; generated_rule trans
    ( if
    ( and
    ( matches ( window_name ) "trans" )
    )
    ( begin
    ( undecorate )
    ( skip_pager )
    ( skip_tasklist )
    ( wintype "dock" )
    ( set_workspace 1 )
    ( center )
    ( geometry "896x800+150+100" )
    ; width x height + x + y
    ( below )
    )
    )
    This is the same code I have used for years, across dozens of distros and it has worked in all without exception. But I seem to recall that I had to do something 'extra' to get it to behave the way it's supposed to in OpenSUSE 11.3.

    God I hope it's not Desktop Effects.
    It may be the wintype option.

    I have read all the usual docs and posts, and as I said "... the same code I have used for years, across dozens of distros...

    I'm hoping that someone can spot the issue.

    Thank you all for your time.

    do what you wish, but if i were you, instead of posting to an openSUSE
    forum where there might happen along a Devils Pie user every other
    month or two, why not try to find a place where someone who _knows_
    something about Devil's Pie hangs out..

    a google leads me to believe it is mostly a "Ubuntu thing" so, ask
    over there...or if the documentation is actually that deficient ask
    the maker: http://www.burtonini.com/blog/computers/devilspie

    or log a bug: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/browse.cgi?product=devilspie

    but, if you just wanna hang here and bump, its okay by me.....

    Thanks DenverD:

    I am just being overzealous.

    Things take time, I know.

    Default [SOLVED]transparent-embedded gnome-terminal with devilspie

    Well, I installed 11.4 and everything is just PEACHY.
    All my "issues" with this topic and a couple of others seem to have been resolved by this release.

    Good JOB!
