Default compiz click to focus

I've been using compiz for the last few weeks, but the click-to-focus is
driving me stark raving bonkers. How do I turn it off?
System->Preferences->"Compiz Settings Manager"->"General
Options"->"Focus & Raise Behaviour"->"Click to Focus"->unchecked seems
to have no effect.

Is it being overridden somewhere? Do I need to do something with "Focus
Prevention Windows" on the same settings page?

Worksforme (F12, 64bit, KDE).

When checked, you should click on a window to get it focused. When unchecked,
you just point at the window, and it gets focused automatically (focusing is
immediate, while "auto raise delay" option controls the speed of bringing the
window to front once it has focus). AFAIK, it works as it is supposed to.

I didn't need to do anything other than unchecking the option above.

Maybe it gets overridden by something else? What window decorator do you use?
What desktop environment?

Try creating a new dummy user, turn on compiz there and try the focus option
(without customizing anything else in compiz). Try to do it in KDE and in
Gnome. Try to change the decorator to Emerald, or KDE4 Window Decorator, or
whatever Gnome uses...

HTH, :-)

Could be, but the solution from the bug comments it seemed I needed to
install compizconfig-backend-gconf, but that was a big noop. I'm not
sure I understand what the workaround is supposed to be.

I'm tempted to mentally mark compiz as "not ready for prime time" and
ignore it. Not having my windows receive focus when I move the cursor
into them is unacceptable in the long run.
