Focus settings? Which desktop is it - MATE, Cinnamon, something else?

Where would I find focus settings? I've been through 3 config editors and haven't seen anything likely. :(

They are buried fairly deep!
On my laptop (ubuntu with MATE 1.6) I found the focus settings in the Dconf editor (not gconf!) in:
org > mate > marco > general
The defaults are
I am not sure its the problem, but its worth trying.

Not in dconf but I found it in MateConfig Configuration Editor 1.2.0 - apps / marco / general, set as you describe. focus-new-windws help says...
"It has two possible values; "smart" applies the user's normal focus mode, and "strict" results in windows started from a terminal not being given focus."
Sounds to me as if it may only refer to terminal launch? If it's more general then I now need to find "this" user's "normal focus mode" :(
I suspect it's in some schema somewhere but there are rather a lot of quite complex ones to work through. Another day.
I have three config editors, all a bit different and all claiming to edit my entire set of configs. None of them does and they sometimes do not agree with each other; or one will alter a setting where another fails. :(
I found a schema that may apply in gconf schemas / metacity / general...
...but I have no obvious folder /shemas - I assume it's actually a sub-folder of something else; I'll have a deeper look.
Thanks for looking, anyway. :)

I knows, I was wondering whether the WM can tell the difference between a terminal and another app.
That is the problem with a dual transition: from Gconf to Dconf and from Gnome (components) to Mate (equivalents).

And then there is KDE config. :)
I'm trying to remove as much KDE as possible, which should help there - see local discussion re: tkremind/reminder as a way of losing kalarm/akonadi. I have to say, though, in that respect I have yet to find anything to compete with klipper (which is in itself a poor substitute for Windows Clipmate).

Just for reference, I've just found the focus references in dconf at org / gnome / desktop / wm / preferences
