[Bug 1427636] [NEW] Desktop doesn't get keyboard focus


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

When a window application is open, the desktop icons can get mouse focus
but the keyboard event are send to the last window. Trying renaming or
deleting files on the desktop with the keyboard is impossible in this

I have the focus mode "follow the mouse", but reverting to the default
setting has the same problem.

Also have a look at this question on Ask Ubuntu


I'm using Ubuntu 14.10 but this problem also happened on 14.04 (and I
think in older versions too)
