#597 "Moving files" obscures "Confirm to replace files"

No

Version: 1.0
OS: Arch Linux
How to Reproduce: Attempt to move a file to another location where a file of the same name already exists.

Predicament: The dialog explaining the situation and offering action options is forcibly hidden by the initial \"Moving files\" window, so that the user has to manually drag the windows around just to read the active one. Adding to the frustration and confusion, clicking the cancel button or the X on the top window has no effect.

See attached screenshot.

    Thank you for the report. Unfortunately I'm afraid I cannot help you especially since nobody else suffers this. And described should never happen, just look how it works:

    gtk_window_set_transient_for(GTK_WINDOW(dlg), GTK_WINDOW(data->dlg));

    and then

    res = gtk_dialog_run(dlg);

    i.e. the libfm tells window manager to place the replace dialog exactly over the progress dialog then all other activity is stopped and the replace dialog is shown. And it works so for anyone else but you. So I believe the described behavior is bug either in your GTK or in your WM configuration. I'm sorry.

    I've made some more improvements on progress dialog window creation and I hope this issue is finally fixed. Thank you.

    We hope this issue is completely fixed in the Git repository recently.
    Check it out when it's possible for you and if the bug still exists then reopen the report, please.
    Thank you very much.
