Main window minimized then dialog window minimized

Postby Emilius » Tue Aug 14, 2012 7:53 pm

hello may be some body know this problem / I use for example app. wireshark, start it and open some chaild window (dialog window for capture...), then I minized this child window together with this window parent window (main window of wireshark ) minimized. Is it normal for LXDE ?
<Emilius>: or may be it can be configurable? I need then I close dialog window main window will be on top(not minimazed)
history from IRC channel
<brother->: step 1: start wireshark
<brother->: done.
<brother->: step 2: open capture dialog
<brother->: done
<brother->: step 3: minimize child window
<brother->: done
<brother->: (brought both windows with it)
<brother->: and the question was if that would be normal
<brother->: hm
<brother->: it is somewhat strange given that you can interact with the main window even thought the "child" is open
<brother->: if that wouldn't be the case I would think about it
<brother->: I am not sure if that is the desired behaviour or not
<brother->: most probably not a LXDE thing. if anything it is part of the window manager (probably openbox)
<Emilius>: in Gnome absent this situation. in gnome minized only dialog window .
<Emilius>: in all case thank you brother. I will ask this question in forum.
<brother->: Emilius: openbox or wireshark are the correct projects to bring it to

If I followed the dialog correctly, yes that is normal. Once the child window pops open, I believe that you must deal with it first. If you minimize, the big guy goes with it. However, if you close it you will not close the main window. Does that answer your question?

second dialog window is minimized, but main window still opened.

This is an ongoing issue, perhaps a bug.

Problem: When raising or lowering(minimizing/restoring) a dialog (moving, copying, etc), the main window goes with it and vice versa.

Interestingly, I have 3 systems, all running Lubuntu 13.10 with latest updates (PCMANFM 1.1.2) and two work correctly and one doesn't. The only difference I can tell is that the two correctly working one's are 64 bit systems and the one with the problem is 32 bit so perhaps there is some difference between the two builds?
