apps>metacity>general I have set up
"focus_mode" to "sloppy" and "auto-raise" to "false".
Now the focus follows the mouse. Anyway, when I have several windows opened, and I close the one on top, the window immediately under the "x" button raises.
I would like that the system respect the "order" of the windows instead.
Here is an example: I have a top window, a middle window, and a background terminal:
If I close the window, I obtain the terminal on top, instead of the middle window. This happens because the terminal is just under the "x" of the top window.
It was more logical (and if was like that, before Unity), to obtain the middle window on top instead of of the terminal, like that:
This is particularly annoying with maximized background applications. Someone knows how to obtain (again) this effect? it is particular disturbing if there is a maximized application and several little windows on it.
Moreover, if focus-follows-mouse is enabled, it is possible to remove/rename desktop icons only if the desktop is completely free.
