In this respect you are right, but this wasn't what I meant. What I was
talking about was to "raise" the window. Or, in other words, make it the
Just to make it clear, KDE offers a great deal of methods to assign input
focus to a window, I use "focus follows mouse", which means, the window the
mouse is in receives all keyboard input. There are some situations in which I
find it convenient to type in a window that is actually (mostly) behind other
windows (especially when I'm using Konsole). But I like to make it the
topmost window by clicking in it, if I need to do so (this behaviour can be
configured in KControl via 'Desktop/Window Behaviour/Focus')
So normally, when I move the cursor to any part of a background window and
click on it, the window is made the topmost window on the desktop. Now my
problem is, this "any part" doesn't work when I enable the composite
features. After that, only a click on the title bar of the program makes it
the topmost window. I find this pretty annoying.
Oh, and by the way: you can drag around windows by ALT-Clicking anywhere
inside them ;-)
