General :: Snap Windows To Pre-defined Grids In GNOME?

Feb 19, 2011

I would like to snap windows in GNOME (more specifically, under Ubuntu) to user pre-defined grids.

I have tried the "Snapping Windows" and "Grid" plugins for Compiz, and have also seen demos of PyWO, but none of these tools seem to provide the above option.

Fedora :: Gnome Shell Snap Not Working For Gedit MDI?

Jun 27, 2011

Gedit windows don't aerosnap left or right. They do upwards (to maximize).

Fedora 15, Gnome Shell, enjoying it.

A classical case for "aerosnapping" two windows side by side, in my experience, is a terminal on one side and a HOWTO in gedit on the other side. This allows easy copy and paste.

Anyway, a gedit window doesn't aerosnap left and right (it only heeds to aerosnapping on the top, for maximizing its window).

OpenSUSE :: Make Windows Snap To Each Other And The Edges Of The Screen?

Aug 22, 2011

Not sure if this is the right sub-forum, but it seems close enough. As stated in the title, how does one go about this? I know Fedora supports this, and was wondering if there was a way to configure it in OpenSuse. I haven't found anything in the Control Center about this, or on the internet for that matter.

General :: Installing Ubuntu From A Flashdrive Alongside - Ngside Windows - Error Message - No Root File System Is Defined

Jul 8, 2011

I can use Ubuntu from my flash drive, but I want to install it in a partition alongside windows. When I try to do this, I come to an 'allocate drive space' window, but whatever I do I get the error message: 'No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.' I just don't know what this means, or what to do next. I'm loathe to ditch windows, and I don't want to have to use a flashdrive all the time.

Ubuntu :: Disable "aero Snap" Function When Dragging Windows To Screen Edges?

May 2, 2011

i would like to disable the aero snap function when using the mouse to drag a window to screen edges... i like to keep multiple small windows with various sizes at the edges of the screen (i.e. with media players listening to music or watching videos to have the screen in one corner while using the remainder of the screen for something else)

i would still like to keep this function with hotkeys (<super> + up/down/left/right) is there any way to work around this?

Ubuntu :: Opening Applications (only Gnome-terminals) In Defined Workspace?

Aug 18, 2010

Ideally I would like to set a keyboard shortcut to open a set of applications. The applications (mainly different gnome-terminals) should be opened in different, previously defined workspaces. I had a look around but could not find a simple solution (maybe it could be done in devilspie but I would like to avoid that).If I limit myself only to gnome-terminal and instead of using the keyboard shortcuts call the application in the shell the placement of the terminal can be done by using "--geometry" (see "man gnome-terminal" and "man X") e.g. "gnome-terminal --geometry 50x20+200+300". wmcrtl show me that my 6 workspaces are treated as one desktop (my interpretation - maybe wrong):

$ wmctrl -d
0 * DG: 7680x1024 VP: 0,0 WA: 0,1 1280x1023 Desk 1

Ubuntu :: Break Up Screen Into Grids?

Feb 22, 2011

Im running ubuntu 10.10 with the default gnome. I have dual 23" LED monitors and I would like to take more advantage of my width by breaking up my screens into multiple custom size zones/grids. Basically so I can maximize a window and it only takes up that custom sized "grid zone". I remember there being a windows app to do this easily, but I havent found anything for gnome. Any recommendations? I dont think compiz grids has much flexibility into the sizes/locations of the "zones".

Ubuntu :: MS Publisher To Make Crossword Grids?

Oct 3, 2010

I just passed a friend from Windows to Ubuntu Lucid.Everything fine, but he is a crossword maker addict. Under Windows, he use MS Publisher to make his crossword grids.With Linux, it's more difficult For now,he use OpenOffice Writer, with a big table, but the table is not very regular.I tried to install Scribus, but it's a professionnal PAO software, not a "easy to use" software as MS Publisher (that's a big ****, of course, but easy to use for neophyte)...I also tried to use free software or shareware for windows, but thera are always works with an algorythm crossword generator, when my friend want to place the word where he wants ! That's the goal and his passion !So I'm still looking for a PAO software very easy to use, or specific program (even Windows program with wine, even not free).

Fedora :: Window Snap When Mouse To The Top-right Of Screen?

Mar 25, 2011

In GNOME Desktop, sometimes when I go to close a window with the X at the top right, I go a little too far and all open windows snap to a scaled grid so I can see what windows are currently open. Cool little feature, but I'm curious if I can move it to a different corner of the screen. Does anyone know how I can move it, or at least disable it?

Ubuntu :: Disable Window Snap-to-screenbounds?

Sep 26, 2010

How can I disable gnome's behavior of snapping windows to screen bounds or other windows?

When I'm programming in supercollider, I have some GUI windows I can pop up to expose some real-time controls. For maximum use of screen space, some of the blank space at the windows' edges should be "out of bounds." On the Mac, and also when I've used supercollider in puredyne (an Ubuntu derivative for multimedia that uses xfce4 as the window manager), GUI windows are placed at the exact coordinates specified in my code.

But, gnome is "extra helpful" and says, "Oh, that window is going to be out of bounds. You couldn't possibly have meant that. Let me move the window inside the screen bounds for you." Well, actually I DID mean that and I don't want the window manager "correcting mistakes" that I fully intended. So then I have to move the windows by hand, even though my software put them where I wanted them in the first place.

I am trying to run X windows on CentOS with GNOME. When I first enter startx i get the message:

Finally, I ran startx -- :1 and then it flashed a black screen with the X mouse cursor but a second later it just went right back to the desktop.

General :: Kill X Windows From Gnome Interface?

Jul 4, 2010

I just installed Arch Linux with Gnome and gdm is set to boot into gnome as soon as it boots.
But I realized that the barebone gnome package that I installed doesn't include a terminal or a text editor so I can't install anything further or modify the rc.conf file to make it boot without gdm.

Is there a way for me to kill x from the Gnome interface?

I have installed Fedora 12 with Gnome desktop on a PC. For some reason, I want GNOME to NOT decorate windows with borders. Is there some way to instruct GNOME to NOT add border to windows, and leave them border-less, without scroll-bar title bar etc. Is there some other desk top environment where it is more convenient to achieve this?
