  • Thread-topic: Workspace switching in gnome-shell


I am seeing some very specific behaviour that is causing us problems in an Eclipse product in gnome-shell with multiple workspaces. It happens with an SWT shell on workspace 1 and a main Eclipse window on workspace 2, if (for example) an action in the shell triggers opening a console in the main window.

In a product based on Eclipse Oxygen: I get a notification ("<window-name> is ready") but the workspace does not switch
In a product based on Eclipse 2020-12: the workspace switches from workspace 1 to workspace 2

I really need to avoid this workspace switch but I am having a hard time figuring out what has changed. Can anyone give me any idea where to look?

Thanks in advance,

RHEL7, Gnome Shell 3.28.3, openjdk 11.0.11
