Re: GTK Menu Window Type

I am trying to use an application written in Perl/GTK (volwheel -, but I had some trouble to display the
popup menu on my screen, because I am using i3wm as my window manager, and
it is bringing the menu as a whole (top level) window instead of a popup.
According to developers of i3wm, this happens because the window type is
not properly set.

Does it obey the ICCCM WM_TRANSIENT_FOR property? (and is that set?)

Like we have options to define the window type in Gtk2::Window->new($type),
can we somehow set the window type for a Gtk2::Menu->new() ?

In i3, all windows with type  dialog, utility, toolbar and splash windows
are defined to be floating (displayed such as a popup on screen), and all
others are displayed as a top level.

That seems a strange list, why wouldn't a popup-type window be displayed
as a popup?

Is there any way to come around this problem?

Do you think the problem is in i3wm, the GTK libraries (perl or C?) or
the volwheel application?

What properties/hints etc are set on the menu window?
