Keep window on top in gnome


I have searched this forum and Google for this, but I have not found anything. Maybe I am not using the correct search terms as I am sure someone else has wondered about this.

Anyway, what I would like to do is keep a window I am working with on top of a another window. For example-- when working in terminal but reading instructions from a web browser I would like my terminal window to stay on top of my browser window even if I click on the browser window. I have done this for years with multiple programs in Windows-- but have not been able to find a program to do this in Linux using Gnome. I would not suspect this would matter but my distro is Ubuntu 6.10.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
George

If you right click on the window list button for the program you want to keep on top, there should be a checkbox for "On Top".

Thank you cgjones. Now I feel like such an idiot :-). I could swear I had tried that just to see if the option was there and did not see it (guess I didn't though). Well, I have some ID 10 T form on my desk that must be completed :-).

No problem. I've always wondered what that check box did. I see it everytime I move a window between workspaces. When you are done filling out those ID 10 T forms, send them my way so I can co-sign them.
