Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

If I am accessing my computer through VNC, when I am in windows A (example: Terminal) and I change to Window B (example: Firefox) on the host computer, everything is fine and it switches.

But on the computer or other device I'm accessing FROM, it doesn't switch windows.

When I move the mouse, both on the host computer, and the device I'm accessing from, the mouse moves, but the window still doesn't switch.

Can this be fixed?

How are you "switching windows"? ALT-Tab, Launcher Bar, etc... –  Kyle Macey Oct 10 '12 at 21:02
By clicking the window. (Click the link for picture) uppix.net/f/b/b/a772dc560c19deeb69a400e8bc737.png –  pgrytdal Oct 10 '12 at 22:10
