"autosave" feature moves focus to the application

Message par niccolo » dim. mai 26, 2019 3:24 pm

I'm using xcas 1.2.3 (of Ubuntu 18.04).

xcas has an autosave feature: every minute, or so, it saves the session (if changes exist in it), to "~/xcas_auto_XXXXXXXX.xws".

Unfortunately, this seemingly nice feature makes life unbearable for Linux users:

After autosaving, xcas moves the focus to its window. So if the user is busy doing some other task (browsing the internet, writing an article, playing solitaire, ...), he's suddenly switched to xcas. This is highly annoying. It means that every minute or so (maybe less) I need to switch back to the application I was yanked out of.

The problem exists in all the window managers I tried:

- xmonad
- LXDE
- jwm

(I don't have Unity, sorry.)

(In LXDE the problem is less acute: the user can put xcas in a separate desktop to alleviate the problem, as xcas won't cause the current desktop to change. But in the other window managers this workaround doesn't work: xcas does switch the desktop to the one it's on.)

Xcas 1.2.3 is really old, you should upgrade to Xcas 1.5.0.

Thanks: I upgraded to 1.5.0 and the problem is gone.
