Window buttons should show attention from other desktop/viewport even if configured not to show all desktop/viewport.
It would also be nice to use bold font (like gnome or window menu) for attention window.
The bug was submitted at debian as #699725
I attached a patch to implement:
- show attention from other viewport/workspace
- use bold font when window demands attention
- show attention even on active window
The last one is normally not useful, but I found one particular use when ssh to compile in another tab, using these script, I can force attention:
# turn on with WINDOWID xprop -id NNNN -f _NET_WM_STATE 32a -set _NET_WM_STATE _NET_WM_STATE_DEMANDS_ATTENTION # turn off with WINDOWID or just minimize and restore xprop -id NNNN -f _NET_WM_STATE 32a -set _NET_WM_STATE ""
