I am using Ubuntu 13.10 with gnome-shell 3.10 installed from Ubuntu Gnome "next" repo. The problem I am facing is that when I switch workspaces (ie. using Ctrl-Alt-arrow combination), all windows being currently open on given workspace simply loose focus, actually nothing is focused at the time. I then need to either click on a window or flick with alt-tab to get desired window to gain focus again.
- Google Chrome window on workspace 1 has focus
- switch to workspace 2 (ctrl+alt+down)
- switch back to workspace 1 (ctrl+alt+up)
- no window has focus on workspace 1, need to click it or press alt-tab to focus the window
Expected behaviour: The last focused window on given workspace should re-gain focus as soon as I switch back to that workspace.
The "Focus mode" setting in Tweak Tool is set to "Click", however I don't recall having such problem before, ie. with earlier versions of gnome-shell. Changing mode to "Sloppy" or "Mouse" is not an option, as I don't like the idea of mouse cursor driving focus. Also tried to disable all extensions I currently have enabled -- no luck either.
Anyone experiencing similar issue and managed to solve it?
Just ~hour after posting this question I've managed to nail the issue. Turned out to be really really trivial: Google Hangouts extension in Google Chrome has had "Keep Hangouts on top of other windows" option switched on. How lame of me. Well, it's been cool to have Hangouts chats pinned to the notification panel but I finally can have focus working properly again.
