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.

Jun 26, 2011

I've read and seen cases were Ubuntu 11.04 users can snap their windows to the left or right by default (such that said window fills half the screen). I, however, cannot do this. Is there something I need to enable.

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 "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 :: Disable ViewPoint Change On ALT+TAB (window Switcher)

May 10, 2010

I've recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and I don't like the fact the my viewpoint is being change when I use the window switcher (ALT+TAB). I tried going to the gconf-editor and changing the /apps/compiz/plugins/staticswitcher/screen0/options/auto_change_vp value to false, restarted.. it IS set to false, the CompizConfig settings manager shows that it is false, but for some reason it is still changing the viewpoint.

I tried disabling the window switcher completely just to see that the configuration works at all.. and it did work.. so, I'm not sure what to do so the view point won't change.

Ubuntu :: Disable Or Customize Some Of Preview Settings On Alt-tab Window

Aug 17, 2011

how to disable or customize some of the preview settings on the alt-tab window..MY Question is if its possible to disable the "Grouping" part..such as having multiple nautilus windows.primarily thunderbird is the largest annoyance.. if im writing an email on my laptop and accedentally (touchpad 'palming') off the 'compose message' window; by default and second nature, my brain tells my fingers to alt-tab back into it.

alt tab doesnt allow tabbing into the sub-groups..you CAN although use the arrow keys combined with alt-tab, and eventually find your way down into the hierarchy, and to the right email. this is much too much work compared to a simple alt-tab once, like most other situations.i did notice an option to disable touchpad while youre typing in the settings. is there a gconf entry to adjust the delay? or how many keys need to be typed before its disabled?

problem there, is that if i hit return, or esc, or delete, or pretty much anything that should just be a QUICK one button press, and back to the touch pad, results in waiting 2-3 SECONDS.

Ubuntu :: Disable Window Maximize When Titlebar Dragged To Top Of Screen?

Apr 29, 2011

I just updated to 11.04. I tried to keep an open mind while using Unity, but I just couldn't deal with the totally unorganized application menu, so I switched back to the regular Gnome desktop. There's something that bugs me, though: when I drag the titlebar of a window up to the top of the screen, it maximizes the window, or more accurately, it "grows" the window depending on how far up I drag it, up to the maximum size of the screen. I don't have any desire to use this method to make my windows larger, and it also prevents me from dragging windows to the virtual desktop above the current one (I have edge-flipping turned on). How to disable this? I installed the compiz config manager installed but can't seem to find the right option.

Ubuntu :: Disable Failsafe Gnome And / Or Unlock Login Preference Window

Jul 9, 2010

when i called up the login screen to change to automatic login, i apparently changed my preference from GNOME to Failsafe GNOME (knew i made an extra click but didn't know where, dumb, i know). with Failsafe the network manager applet and all the other default prefs disappeared. the worst is that i can't connect to wireless without the nm.

these are preferences, right? you should be able to go right back anytime and change them but now when i go settings > admin > login the window is locked. only the unlock button is lit up and that won't budge. so as the thread title says, how do i unlock login preference window and/or disable Failsafe Gnome?

Hardware :: Disable Wheel Click For Any X11 Window Managers?

Sep 9, 2010

I tried to follow some internet instructions on how to disable the wheel click (that paste the clipboard contents) but I still can't make it work. I tried to add a button mapping to X11 conf file:
Option "ButtonMapping" "1 1 3 4 5"

I also tried by creating a hal policy:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2"> <device>
<match key="info.capabilities" contains="input.mouse">
<match key="/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/computer:system.kernel.name" string="Linux">
<merge key="input.x11_options.ButtonMapping" type="string">1 2 3 4 5 0 0 0 0 0 0 0</merge>
</match> </match> </device> </deviceinfo>
But nothing seems to disable the wheel click.

I am using Xfce 4.6.1 with Slackware 13.0. My Mouse is a Microsoft. IntelliMouse USB PS/2 compatible.

Debian Multimedia :: Disable Gnome But Start Window Manager

Aug 16, 2011

In the murky world of X11, window managers, session managers and desktop environments I cannot seem to figure out how to achieve the following in Squeeze:

1. Leave Gnome installed, but prevent it from launching when typing startx
2. Have both X11 and my prefered default window manager (blackbox) startup when I type startx (or similar)

My ultimate goal is to leave Gnome installed but "dormant" and when I do a remote ssh -X be able to use X11 forwarding with blackbox.

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).
