Interface steals focus when finished saving

Post by fawtytoo »

I use MakeMKV on Linux. I have no issues with the software's functionality per se, but the interface does have an annoying "feature".

When it's finished saving titles, it shows a popup, a panel notification, and steals focus. The biggest problem is that it steals focus. If I'm using another program on another workspace, it will not only appear above the other program (potentially ruining other work I'm doing) but will also switch to that workspace.

Is it possible to address this?

I know of no way to disable the notification. I found out how to add MakeMKV to Gnome's list so I could turn them off, but I guess the way MakeMKV invokes them ignores that setting.

Stealing focus is the main concern really. This may be a window manager issue, but there is no way to change this in Gnome. Perhaps to disable the popup in MakeMKV might do it.
