#26686 closed defect (fixed)

fop steals UI focus even though it is a CLI application

Reported by: jeremyhu (Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia) Owned by: boeyms@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.9.1
Keywords: Cc: drkp (Dan Ports)
Port: fop

Description

This has annoyed me for quite a long time now. Whenever fop is run, it steals focus from your foreground application and creates a dock icon even though it is a command line application.

This is *HIGHLY* annoying as I build documentation in the background. I've had to click my mouse on this text field at-least twenty times to fill out this bug report.

I bumped fop to 1.0, and it still has the problem.

I had a probably-related issue: I tried using fop on a server machine with no GUI (or at least one I wasn't logged into) and it failed because it couldn't contact the window server.

I was able to get it to work by adding -Djava.awt.headless=true to the Java command line in /opt/local/bin/fop, so maybe that's a solution. I don't know if it behaves any differently in headless mode, though.
