setting autoraise and focus-follows-mouse

Post by orlando corde » Fri, 27 Sep 1996 04:00:00



hello

for years now, i've had focus-follows-mouse and autoraise in fvwm,
and i can only get focus-follows-mouse in fvwm95. i added

Style "*" SloppyFocus

or something like that and i got the focus-follows-mouse part.

now i want the window in focus to come to the top automatically
and i can't get it to happen.  i've commented out the
ClickToFocus line and made sure that AutoRaise was there.

anybody have any luck with this?

thanks

orlando

Thanks to you, I just got it to work!
Ive been having the same difficulty since switching to fvwm95

Heres what works:
1) comment out clickToFocus
2) add to your 'init' function:
  +       "I"     Module FvwmAuto 500
  This loads the 'autoraise' feature to allow autoraises

I had both of those, but it did not work, as the new window never GOT
fucus to allow FvwmAuto to determine a long enough period of time had
gone by

3) Style "*" SloppyFocus

Once I added that last puzzle piece, it works!!!
