I have two monitors that I use for development. I would like to use sloppy focus for switching between windows. sloppy focus -- whatever you mouse is hovering over is in focus.

I know it's available in ubuntu 10.04. How do you enable it?

  • +1; I was about to ask the same question. Let me just add these words to make this more easily findable: focus follows mouse.

  • Isn't this not a duplicate, as it references gnome, while the other question deals with Unity?

System -> Preferences -> Windows

Check "Select windows when the mouse moves over them"
