Keeping (any) dialogs on top/in focus on KDE desktop Sub_title: How to better integrate gui dialogs from a bash script with the KDE desktop
I apologize in advance if this isn't the best place to post this. I haven't figured that out yet.
My essential question is: If I recode "it" into gtkdialog, will that have any effect on the problem? If not, any ideas?
I have a project coded in bash with a number of yad pop-ups in it.
It works great, but if the user clicks anywhere on the desktop outside of the current yad pop-up, then all subsequent pop-ups from my script come up behind everything else and are invisible except that they show up in and can be accessed from the taskbar.
This makes the application a lot harder to use and keystrokes that the use thinks will go to the pop-ups end up going to other windows with unpredictable results.
How can this be prevented? Will recoding from yad to gtkdialog help?
