Set Focus to Follow Mouse Cursor in GNOME 3

Install dconf-editor in RHEL or Fedora, then go to
org -> gnome -> desktop -> wm -> preferences
and make sure auto-raise check-box is checked on.
Also, change the focus-mode to sloppy or mouse.
The window focus mode indicates how windows are activated. It has three possible values; "click" means windows must be clicked in order to focus them, "sloppy" means windows are focused when the mouse enters the window, and "mouse" means windows are focused when the mouse enters the window and unfocused when the mouse leaves the window.
There's a nice, detailed write-up available on worldofgnome.org.
Auto Raise Delay:
The time delay before raising a window if auto-raise is set to true. The delay is given in thousandths of a second.

Focus Mode:
The window focus mode indicates how windows are activated. It has three possible values; “click” means windows must be clicked in order to focus them, “sloppy” means windows are focused when the mouse enters the window, and “mouse” means windows are focused when the mouse enters the window and unfocused when the mouse leaves the window.

There is also the Focus New Windows:
This option provides additional control over how newly created windows get focus. 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.
