Hello developers,

here's a wishlist bug with enclosed patch submitted by a Debian user.

What do you think about it?

Thanks, Davide

Dear Maintainer,

This may be at least partially window-manager-specific, I use gnome shell.

When performing forward search between a LaTeX buffer
and evince, one would usually expect the evince window to pop up -
which it does, but without focus.  On my system this even leads to 
inconsistent alt-tab behaviour, so there could be a window manager bug
here, but that's beside the point - evince should get focus on forward
search, which it doesn't.

Reverse search from evince to emacs does not even raise the emacs window.

This is counter-intuitive (why would I perform a serach if not in order to
see the result?)

I attach a patch I use on my system, which is fairly Linux specific
(using wmctrl).  Not sure that it is the best solution, but pls take a look.
If you apply this, maybe also Recommend wmctrl.

All the beat,
