Applications Windows Bug

Since the last update I am having an issue with application windows, if I click on a browser window after having just had the email window active, the activities bar still shows the email is active, so I can’t type in the browser. This happens with all apps, the activities will either show nothing or the last active application. The only way around it I have found is to put each active application in a separate desktop window and superkey between the environments. That way there is only one active application, so it can’t show the last app I was using. Although, this is not perfect, as it still sometimes shows nothing and I have to click several times to get the app to appear active in the activities bar. Any help on how to solve this or if there is something I am missing would be gratefully received.

Hi @Spec, and welcome!

In order for us, or anyone for that matter, to be able to provide assistance, more information is necessary. To that end, please see:

Hope you manage!

:bangbang: Tip: :bangbang:

To provide terminal output, copy the text you wish to share, and paste it here, surrounded by three (3) backticks, a.k.a grave accents. Like this:

pasted text

Or three (3) tilde signs, like this:

pasted text

This will just cause it to be rendered like this:

Portaest sed
cursus nisl nisi
hendrerit ac quis
tortor sit leo commodo.

Instead of like this:

Portaest sed elementum cursus nisl nisi hendrerit ac quis sit adipiscing tortor sit leo commodo.

Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.

Thereby improving legibility and making it much easier for those trying to be of assistance.

:bangbang::bangbang: Additionally

If your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with LC_ALL=C. For example:

LC_ALL=C bluetoothctl

This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.

Please edit your post accordingly.

Have you tried clearing the cache?

rm --force --recursive ~/.cache/*

I don’t usually suggest or even think this, but it IS the first thing I thought of on reading your post.

If not please provide more data (see above)

Thank you, both. @Hanzel I think that could be it, or related, so I think I will just wait for the next update, rather than mess around with things.
