[SOLVED] [Openbox] Xfce terminal opened unfocused


I'm having some trouble with the Xfce terminal (package "terminal").

I have created a key combination in rc.xml to open a new terminal window:

<keybind key="C-A-j">
  <action name="Execute">

Now when Alt-Tabbing through other (non-terminal) windows, then opening the terminal window with the key combination, the window is opened unfocused (and mostly behind another window), so I manually need to switch focus to it.

However, when opening the terminal from dmenu, it correctly gets the focus.

I have not experienced the same problem with xterm, so I assume there has to be a problem with the Xfce terminal.

My question: Has anybody experienced the same kind of thing? (I would just like to know if this is normal).

Alright, I finally solved it.

This is what I added in rc.xml:

  <application name="terminal">

I have not clue why this would be necessary for this terminal application only though.
