Unable to type into dmenu

When launching dmenu (or rofi) I am unable to type anything or even close the application. If I open the application from the terminal, then all of the keyboard input goes into the terminal. I don't think that the application is getting focus. Is there any way to resolve this?

edit: It seems that gnome-terminal steals the focus and does not let dmenu keep it.
