workarounds for Fedora Core Linux users


I've updated the Troubleshooting section of the emacs-w3m info.
Here is an extract:

| * Q. Why doesn't the emacs-w3m frame pop up to the front?
|   It is quite convenient that the `M-x w3m RET' command makes the
|   emacs-w3m frame pop to the front even if it is hidden under the
|   other frames.  However, it was reported that it does not work when
|   running Emacs on some platforms (e.g., Fedora Core Linux) in which
|   the `metacity' window manager is used.  In those systems, other
|   features which raise the Emacs frames will not work, either.  If
|   you are in such a miserable circumstance, it might be worth trying
|   the following advice:
|        (if (or (featurep 'xemacs) (not window-system))
|            nil
|          (defadvice raise-frame
|            (after make-it-work (&optional frame) activate)
|            "Make it work with the aid of wmctrl."
|            (call-process
|             "wmctrl" nil nil nil "-i" "-R"
|             (frame-parameter (or frame (selected-frame))
|                              'outer-window-id))))
|   Where `wmctrl' is the external command which you can get from:
|   `http://sweb.cz/tripie/utils/wmctrl/'
|   Note that you have to install the `wmctrl' command before putting
|   the advice into the `~/.emacs' file.
|   In addition to this, if your Emacs has been built with the
|   `--with-gtk' option, the following advice also might be necessary:
|        (if (or (featurep 'xemacs)
|                (not window-system)
|                (not (featurep 'gtk)))
|            nil
|          (defadvice select-frame (around set-input-focus
|                                          (frame) activate)
|            "Run `select-frame-set-input-focus'."
|            (setq ad-return-value (and (framep frame)
|                                       (frame-live-p frame)
|                                       frame))
|            (ad-deactivate 'select-frame)
|            (unwind-protect
|                (select-frame-set-input-focus frame)
|              (ad-activate 'select-frame))))
|   It is said that those workarounds will become needless when the
|   next version of Emacs 22.1 is released.

Furthermore, I use this advice personally.  It is useful when
`pop-to-buffer' raises a frame (i.e., the case where
`pop-up-frames' is bound to t).
