SER sometimes requires “two clicks” to bring window to front

Hi @sven, a bug I’ve noticed since have been using SER a lot lately. In Windows 7 (possibly Windows 10 as well), SER requires “two clicks” when you have a project running and navigate away from the SER window.

To re-create the bug:

– Open SER
– Start a project (make active)
– Click to another taskbar program, for example, Excel
– Wait a while, don’t click on SER immediately after
– Click on SER icon in the taskbar
– SER doesn’t recognize the click, the window does not open
– Click SER taskbar icon again and it will show properly

This is a small but really annoying issue as when a program is clicked you would expect it to appear accordingly. It could be a Windows problem, but I’ve never encountered this with any other program besides SER.

Update: I actually just had this issue without an active project. Does SER have some sort of “sleep mode” that requires 2 clicks to re-open the window after you haven’t clicked it in the while or something?

Ubuntu 18.04 File Explorer with Preview window like MS Windows File Explorer

Ubuntu 18.04 Gnome 3.28.2 – I have a ton of documents and images that I need to go through efficiently without having to open them or hit the spacebar. I just want to select them in file explorer and have a preview similar to what Windows File Explorer generates on the side. I am using Nautilus. I do have Dolphin but have other issues there like not seeing symbolic links and no previews there either. I don’t know how to obtain what I want.

Compiz: Fixed window placement, which alternative?

At login two windows are automagically opened. For the purpose of fixed location of these, I am trying CompizConfiguration Settings Manager, function Place Windows. The Fixed Windows Placement tab gives me three choices: Windows with fixed position, Windows with fixed placement mode, and Windows with fixed viewport.

What is the difference between these alternatives? I have tried to find an explanation, but miserably failed. Any light on the matter is gratefully received.

take-vector-screenshot: focusing the window before taking the screenshot

I am using take-vector-screenshot to take a PDF screenshot.

When I launch take-vector-screenshot, I have to click a button within its window in order to begin the screenshot process. I then need to pick the window to take a screenshot of.

A button is required to be clicked to start the process

In the process of clicking this button (pictured above), the focus changes from the window which I actually want to capture. Hence the screenshot I get is of an unfocussed window, which is undesirable.

I can use wmctrl -a $ WINDOW_TITLE to focus the window I want to take the screenshot of, but this doesn’t work if I precede it with e.g. a sleep 3.

Any ideas how I can get this to work?

unity weird window

There is a weird window on my desktop that is not going away. It happens occasionally, I think it is triggered by mouse action:

unity desktop

This window does not belong to any application. Window icons are blanked out as well:

icons, white

It appears on all desktops, I have no idea what this is doing. I am using Ubuntu 16.04

Question:

  1. how do I trigger this behaviour?
  2. what is its purpose?

what is crashing/exiting my gnome window session?

From time to time (but really too often) my desktop environment (for now xfce4) exits/crash itself and the system goes back to the login screen (gdm) silently.

In syslog I can see in correlation with the time of the exit a bunch of :

but my Xorg.log doesnt say anything during that time.

Where can I start to investigate ? What can I try ?

Thank you for any pointer 🙂

nb: not sure if this is relevant but this is a multiseats system.

minimizing/restoring multiple windows with one action instead of doing that for each window

I use Ubuntu 16.04 and have to build/run an Android application on multiple emulator at the same time to compare differences between them. This requires minimizing/restoring windows of multiple emulator for each test which is annoying. I want to know is there a way to do minimizing/restoring those windows with one action instead of doing that for each window? For example is it possible to merge multiple windows into one? Or can I group them?

Note: I do not want to do minimizing/restoring all windows, I want to do that for some windows.

Authentication Window on anonymous access SharePoint Server 2019 communication site

I want to make a communication site in my SharePoint Server 2019 available for anonymous access. I made all the changes necessary for classic sites

  • Allow anonymous in “Authentication Providers”
  • Add read-only anonymous policy (I also tried “no policy”)
  • Allowed anonymous access inside site collection

I can access the site and the site opens. Halfway through the site rendering I get an authentication window. Ignoring it in a modern browser loads the site without some parts. Ignoring in IE11 gets me an HTTP500.

Inspecting the IIS Logs I found some calls to the SharePoint API that provide me with HTTP401s:

POST /_api/SP.Utilities.SPSocialSwitch.IsFollowingFeatureEnabled/SP.Utilities.SPSocialSwitch.IsFollowingFeatureEnabled

GET /_api/Site/Site $ select=StatusBarLink,StatusBarText

POST /_api/sphome/GetAcronymsAndColors labels=[{Text:%20%22Testsystem%22}]

POST /_api/SP.Utilities.SPSocialSwitch.IsFollowingFeatureEnabled

GET /_api/Site $ select=StatusBarLink,StatusBarText

POST /_api/contextinfo

Those seem to prevent me from accessing the whole site with an anonymous user.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to navigate around this?

How to get value from popup window to parent window by clicking from database selection?

Originally it was like this and it worked until the crawlers no longer supported it, and even the return No. after the click I got there:

<scriptlanguage="JavaScript"type="text/javascript">var retVal=""var valReturned;function openModal(){
retVal=showModalDialog('stranky/modal.php');
valReturned=retVal;
document.getElementById("zakaznik").value=valReturned;}</script>…
