[jitsi-dev] focus handling broken?


#1

I have faced this problem as well. Jitsi steals focus away from other
programs. Of course, this may also depend on the window manager/desktop
environment being used, I use KDE, with a 'Focus stealing prevention'
setting of Medium.

Under Window Manager settings, select Focus from the list on the left.

On the right panel, there will be a drop down list for Focus stealing
prevention (off - low - medium - high).

I only face the problem sometimes though. It may not necessarily be Jitsi's
fault.

Hi Sandeep,

very interesting. Yes, I am also using KDE (still Kubuntu 13.10).
Which setting do you mention?

Cheers,
Matt
