Browsing Problem In Linux
May b it is some kind of stupid problem but it is getting me nervous

When i open a new window of any program (say tht i click on the kopete icon in the system tray) then it doesnt appear on top of all other windows, yet it appears in the system tray but highligted (like a flash to tell me tht the window is ready or something)

is there any settings tht could be chnaged to change tht issue ???

also I wish to have the icons opened by a double click not a single click, is tht possible ?

thx in advance

no answer, is the issue tht tough ??

I am a begginner guys, please someone help

yes it's possible, what GUI are you using? KDE or Gnome?

In KDE, it's all in KDE Control Center in Window Behavior or something like it.

OK, three things:

You need clearer subject lines for your posts, or people will just ignore them. "Browsing" could be anything - I thought it was an Internet problem to begin with. And of course it's "In Linux" - otherwise you wouldn't be here in the first place.

Also, you'll find that most online discussion forums (including this one) frown slightly on txt-spk - try proper sentences to endear yourself to potential helpers.

Finally, don't bump topics after half an hour of going unanswered - give it a few hours if it's really urgent, otherwise leave it maybe a day or so. If after bumping once my questions still aren't heeded, I try other forums - there are plenty out there.

I think your problem lies in KDE's "Focus stealing prevention level".
Find the KDE Control Centre (I have it in my K menu, but that's not 'out-of-the-box' behaviour) and take the following route:
Desktop > Window Behaviour > "Advanced" tab

You'll probably find that the "Focus stealing prevention level" drop-down at the bottom is set to "High" or "Extreme".
If you set it to "Normal" all should be well.

Napalm Llama,

thx alot my dear for ur advices, I am not familiar with forums alot

secondly, ur advices for the window behavior worked fine, it was an issue of stealing prevention level and i fixed it, i tured it to normal

another question, is it possible to make the mouse handling with double click not a single click as it is made by default ??

Napalm Llama 02-14-2005 08:15 AM

Just out of interest, are you continuing to use txt-spk simply to irritate me? I didn't mention it just to be grouchy - people really will be more likely to take time giving you a full and thourough answer if you take the time to ask your question in full sentences.

KDE Control Centre > Peripherals > Mouse > "General" tab

You should find what you need there.
I suggest going right through the control centre, customising everything to exactly how you want it. But don't change anything if you don't know what it is... that only leads to problems!

thanks alot

and sorry for using the txt-spk again

it worked and became with double click

abisko00 02-14-2005 08:30 AM

Just out of curiosity: what is txt-spk?

Maybe I can avoid irritating others, also ;)

John_Emad 02-14-2005 08:47 AM

from what i understood, it means writning non-full words

for example writing "u" instead of "you"

writing "tht" instead of "that"

tht's wht I got, i hope it is correct

Napalm Llama 02-14-2005 08:48 AM

That's OK - just try to remember, and you'll get on better with picky forum people like me:p
Glad it worked :)

abisko00, txt-spk is whn u tlk lik ths - th same as u do on a fone or sumtims in instnt msngr
c it gets anoyn aftr a whl, dsnt it?

John_Emad 02-14-2005 08:50 AM

Napalm Llama,

I am really thankfull for your help, I appreciate it alot

Napalm Llama 02-14-2005 08:59 AM

Hey, it's not often that I'm able to help:D


rob0t 02-14-2005 04:39 PM can get used to reading those. In reality you only to have first and last letter of the word and the rest in the middle mispelled to read it. Sehitmong lkie tihs :D

Napalm Llama 02-14-2005 05:34 PM

Wow... a thread that's actually gone off topic. I don't think I've ever seen one of those here before.

...To reading which, incidentally? I was talking about shortening your words to reduce typing time, not just getting the letters jumbled.

And yaeh, taht is a vrey irenttensig efceft idened:p
