I have got a java application that opens a modal dialog. The modal dialog is shown behind the main window and there is no way I can bring the modal dialog to front. If I switch to Cinnamon everything works as expected but not in Fluxbox. See the screenshot:

enter image description here

The window with the title "JNLP file" should be shown in front. Even when I try to bring it with the mouse it stays in behind. Is there any way to fix it?

PS. When I press ALT-TAB the java applicaton is not amoung the ones selectable (using bbkeys).

  • Do you have the issue with this (java) application only? If not, maybe something about the focus model in the fluxbox menu? – user44370 Aug 7 '14 at 8:16
  • can you rightclick the dialog @ the titlebar to bring up the window-menu and raise it's layer? – akira Aug 7 '14 at 10:07
  • @illuminÉ It happens only with java applications. I suspect that too, something wrong with the focus model. – user11498 Aug 7 '14 at 12:25
  • @akira it works when I raise, but when I close and open it, I have to raise the layer again. – user11498 Aug 7 '14 at 13:31
