[REOPENED] Openbox: disable mouse click to focus desktop

I'm trying to figure out what mousebind is focusing the desktop if I left-click it. I don't want my active window to lose focus if I click the desktop but I'd still like to be able to right-click and middle-click it.

Re: [REOPENED] Openbox: disable mouse click to focus desktop

Left click does nothing for me at all.  Centre and right work though.

The top of my ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>

        Copy the file to $HOME/.config/openbox/ instead. -->

    <!-- The monitor where Openbox should place popup dialogs such as the

Re: [REOPENED] Openbox: disable mouse click to focus desktop

I'm not using #!'s rc.xml., I should have mentioned that. In that file, under <Context name="Desktop">, I removed...

      <mousebind button="Left" action="Press">
        <action name="Focus"/>
        <action name="Raise"/>
      </mousebind>
      <mousebind button="Right" action="Press">
        <action name="Focus"/>
        <action name="Raise"/>
      </mousebind>

Seems to be working as I wanted. Thanks for the response, Sector11, and thanks for the compliment in the other thread on my setup!

Re: [REOPENED] Openbox: disable mouse click to focus desktop

Use obconf and see if there are settings for focus policy - setting the focus policy you want should make the changes for you - catch any you may have missed doing a manual edit.

Re: [REOPENED] Openbox: disable mouse click to focus desktop

I checked there, all good. Thanks PackRat!

-edit- In BunsenLabs, it's the similar. delete...

      <mousebind button="Left" action="Press">
        <action name="Focus"/>
        <action name="Raise"/>
      </mousebind>

Is there a good reason to keep that keybind?
