10.3: Switch Terminal window focus with mouse movement
Authored by: Kludge on Mar 20, '11 10:01:41AM

The reason it doesn't work is the guy didn't bother to actually look at the value he's changing. It's not a string it's a boolean. The correct code is:

defaults write FocusFollowsMouse -boolean YES

The bug mentioned about command-tab switching with spaces has been fixed in 10.6.6 so there's no reason not to use the focus-follows-mouse in terminal. It's saved me all sorts for grief and having to correct my code window when I accidentally type in there instead of my terminal window.
