I submitted a SCR:
#7350- many dialogs do not get focus on linux if were closed with a cancel
http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=7350

just too many dialogs during normal usage don't come up focused.
alt-tab is a workaround, but it interrupts the 'flow'
is anyone else having the same problem?
if so please vote and be heard ....

thanks
Edo

Many dialogs (see also bug #7300) show up without having focus.

for example - the search and replace text dialog.
in a text editor type CTRL-R
if the dialogs comes up with focus, press CANCEL
ctrl-R again - for me it has no focus
click on a widget (ie give forcus to the text entry field) and then click CANCEL again
CTRL-R - this time it has focus for me
- press CANCEL - press CTRL-R this time again no focus.


(this bug was appearing in the forums only as #7325 - so it is resubmitted)

I am using mandrake 9.0 and I have just tried build 680 under both KDE
(3.0.x) and GNOME (2.0.x).
Actually the problem exists - and it is perfectly reproducible - on
GNOME only. KDE works fine. I guess I'll have to switch.

bah, other people time wasted in the resource sink of gnome vs kde.
ok, choice is good, but if only the two parties would unite resources ...

thanks,
Edo

I have a feeling that Gnome is very half-done (especially its
window manager (Metacity) in 2.0 release). Personaly I prefer KDE and it
seems that SUN also test JDK under KDE.

Any other Gnome 2.0.x users around ?????????

Bug 67350 has justy been closed and I'm a bit unhappy.

I understand it may be a WM issue, but for me to submit a solvable bug
to Gnome or Sun I wrote a minimal swing program (frame with button that
shows a owned modal dialog with a hide button).
This minimal program of mine worked fine on wingnomekde.
So, I can't submit anythinig to sun/gnome IMO.

Also, Mandrake 9.0/Gnome2.0.x is I suppose a primary linux platform and
the use of Idea with the keyboard is seriously limited because of the
issue with all dialogs.

Are you sure you don't want to add a workaround like
this.toFront() or
myDefaultWidget.requestFocus() or
whatever() to your
superdialog.setVisible(true)

All these (and also many other) workaround already done.
Please switch to KDE (it's not too difficult. isn't is? :) ) and
try the same things. BTW I've just test IDEA under RH 7.3 (Gnome 1.4)
and everything is also OK.

Best regards,
Vladimir Kondratyev

Vladimir,
as I said in this thread I verified that IDEA's dialogs behavior is fine
under KDE (Mandrake 9 has KDE 3.0.3) and Windows but not under Mandrake9
- Gnome (2.0.x).

Unfortunately, my simple test program works fine instead under both WM
(and windows) so I can't use it for posting a bug to sun or gnome.

You suggest me to switch to KDE but and that is exactly the reason of me
complaining - I don't like having to quit gnome because of a java app!!

Edo
