• Steam minimizes fullscreen applications


    Whenever I receive a steam message my fullscreen application gets minimized. Which is really frustrating when I’m in a csgo match or facing a boss in torchlight. Anyone got an easy fix? Been fiddling around with steam settings and window management in Gnome haven’t found any solution yet.
    I also discovered (while writing this) that if someone write to me on steam, the message window pops up and interrupts the current window I’m using.

  • You can set Windows in GNOME to “stay always on top”…
    But as i do no use steam (for now) i do not know if this Window you are having in fullscreen is capable of this…

  • @joekamprad It can be done on other windows but not for steam and its various windows. Including games. Tried all sorts of stuff. But I’ve checked up on KDE recently and thought I would give it a try. Been a few years since I tried it. Apparently they don’t have this issue. Thanks anyway!
