I’m in a system running the Netbook Environment, an up-to-date Lucid. In terminator’s settings, I have ’Terminal bell’ set to be shown as ’Window list flash’. This goes nicely together with irssi (which I’m running through ssh on a remote server) being set to ring the bell on messages I want to be informed of.
However, when the window list is flashing, and I bring the terminator window on top, it doesn’t clear the ”URGENT” — i.e. the window list keeps on flashing. Furthermore, in a split terminator window, if I left-click on the segment running irssi, which raised the ”URGENT”, the flashing still won’t stop. I have to type something into the terminal to make the flashing stop.
I’m not too familiar with the inner workings and relations between the different signals involved in here, but I presume the flashing should stop when the window with ”URGENT” is activated, or brought on top, or at least when the segment in question is activated (or left-clicked).
Steps to reproduce:
1. Set ’Terminal bell’ to make ’Window list flash’ in terminator’s settings.
2. Run an app that rings the terminal bell in terminator after a while.
3. De-activate terminator’s window (bring another app on top) and wait for the bell.
4. When terminator flashes in window list, activate it.
Terminator’s flashing in the window list stops.
Terminator keeps flashing in the window list until I type something into its window.
