I have been using Terminator as a drop-down terminal, using the
hide_window key binding. It works well, but has a glaring flaw. When the Terminator window is unhidden, it doesn't have focus. And often enough, I just press the key for Terminator, start typing immediately ... and hilarity ensues. How do I make Terminator gain focus as well?
- GNOME Shell
- Arch Linux / Ubuntu 14.04 (the behaviour is the same on both systems)
- There is only one Terminator window running at any given time.
Sometimes, unhiding-hiding-unhiding in quick succession results in Terminator having focus, but this is very cumbersome (and somewhat unreliable).
