When a windowed app has focus and I click a maximized app below it, I'd like to set focus to the maximized window but for the windowed app to remain in the foreground.
I recently upgraded (by means of a fresh install) from Precise to Trusty.
For a number of years my workflow has relied on "Raise-on-Click" being disabled. I like to be able to copy text from a maximized browser to a text editor or an IDE in a window on top of the browser.
In 14.04, disabling that setting has no effect.
I am used to do it via compizconfig-settings-manager, which is what I did:
I also verified the setting having changed in dconf-editor:
Under org > gnome > desktop > wm > preferences
Even though it should take effect immediately, I did reboot just to be on the safe side before asking here.
How do I restore my workflow?
Edit: If this is not a global issue...
... let me reformulate the question:
What setting (in CCSM, unity-tweak-tool, dconf-editor) could possibly be overriding the above?
