[Bug 985430] Re: Can't unshade windows


Hi    I just upgraded from lucid LTS to Trusty LTS  because I had Lucid
operating practically everything I use flawlessly - but It became
obsolete and needed upgrade.

 Ubuntu 14.04 LTS  - the first linux release that window shading is fowled.
I'd rather dump unity than sacrifice window shading.
linux window shading is one of my most frequently used features - old habits die hard - especially when the habit is productive. 

So here it is October 2015, and still hand-sitting on this issue?
updates have not fixed it for me so far.

Are we at ubuntu 14.04-4  yet? maybe then some headway on this?
So few posts here since the  op -  is every one satisfied with non-unity sessions to solve this? 
learning to live with unity, or maybe not.

  Can't unshade windows

Bug description:
  Shading a window with Ctrl+Alt+S works fairly well, and the same key
  combo unshades too, but only if you haven't changed focus between the
  shade and unshade.

  1. Open a window and shade it (Ctrl+Alt+S).
  2. Switch focus to another window or just click on the desktop.
  3. Click on the title bar of the shaded window and try to unshade it with Ctrl+Alt+S.

  Observed: The previously focussed window gets shaded, instead of the
  currently focussed (shaded) window being unshaded.

  Expected: The currently focussed (shaded) window should be unshaded.

  Right click on the title bar of the shaded window and select "Unminimise".
