I have had LO (previously OOo) on my Linux computers since 2005 and I
have always had this problem, but today I finally decided to see if
there was a way to fix it. During that time I have had all kinds of
distros (Ubuntu mostly, but also Fedora, OpenSUSE, Debian, and others),
versions of distros, and desktop environments (Gnome, KDE, etc.). I
currently have Xubuntu 14.04, up to date with LO, from the
repository. I should add that during all these years I have
occasionally used the official release from OOo or LO, but the focus
problem remains.

By 'focus problem' I mean that when I restore LO from having been
minimized to the panel the LO window does not take the focus like all
other programs do. I have to click somewhere on the window to get it to
take the focus. Until I click on the window I can't type in the
document. This also means that if I restored the window to the
desktop and try to minimize it again right away it won't minimize
just by clicking on the icon in the panel until I click on the window
to get it to take the focus. Also, if I have the LO window on the
desktop and am using it, but temporarily switch to another window on
the desktop (as is the case right now where I am typing this message in
a window from my mail client), when the active window is minimized or
closed LO should take the focus again, but it does not.

Even if it can't be fixed I would like to know why this happens only
with LO. Any suggestions or insights welcome!
