I am having some problems with fresh installation of Fedora 9 + GNOME.
The problem is: Imagine a situation that you have two applications, each running on its own workspace, and one changes to the alert state. The application
from the other workspace will show up in the cycle when you press alt+tab, but it is unable to actually switch to it.
To test this, open skype on the second workspace and do some work on the first until a friend writes to you. Youu'll see the progeam show up in the alert state on the toolbar. You can see the app when you press alt-tab even it's on different workspace.
Anybody knows how to solve this? Is it a bug (i'll report it then) or a feature (how to change that?)
I believe the problem isn't in keyboard shortcuts, but I checked...No
Actually - the problem isn't that I WANT to switch between windows on different workspaces using alt+tab, but that I DON'T and some alert windows are still appearing in the cycle even they are on a different workspace.
Fedora 9, and the KDE with it have lot of problem and should be avoided for a while, by any measure it is 9 and the 10 Beta version are particularly nasty software, it is exceptionally irresponsible to dump it on the unsuspecting people, another common problem is that it does not shut down sometimes and can corrupt the BIOS, I have come across 3 cases and in one case damage was irreversible.
