I recall a partner in a CS class who changed my setup to focus a window on mouse over and that was really handy for programming with a ton of terminals open.

I've seen Dwell Click under accessibility options, but that doesn't seem to do anything. I know that sometimes the GUI control applets have features undisabled that don't really do anything (i.e. WINS) if you don't have the right stuff installed.

How do I get mouse over pretty much just simulate clicking the window.

(Using Fedora 14 with GNOME)

Just deleted my main answer as I misunderstood your question the first few times through. It's called "Raise selected windows after an interval" in System/Preferences/windows, but raising only on title bar is not implemented to my knowledge(I could be wrong). –  Dan M. Jan 26 '11 at 19:08
    
@Dan M. That's the answer I was looking for, it's not under "Mouse" it's under "Windows". I had a problem where it said "Window manager "compiz" has not registered a configuration tool", all I had to do to rid myself of that was metacity --replace. –  Peter Turner Jan 26 '11 at 19:18

Yeah, that worked too, just installed gconf-editor, never knew that existed before thanks. –  Peter Turner Jan 26 '11 at 19:33
    
No worries, that is nice little tool to muck things up real good :) –  Dan M. Jan 26 '11 at 19:35
