OpenSUSE :: Emacs Window Doesn't Properly Snap To Other Windows

Jul 19, 2010

with 11.2 and now with 11.3 (using KDE4) i got two issues with emacs:

1) The emacs window doesn't properly snap to other windows. There is mostly a small gap inbetween.
2) When switching between buffers with C-x b the emacs window shrinks vertically from below!

OpenSUSE :: Emacs Does Not Refresh Properly

Apr 26, 2011

I'm using openSUSE 11.4 Tumbleweed with KDE 4.6. I started using emacs and I wound when I scroll, emacs gui does not refresh the screen properly, and the characters get messy.

Especially the first column (first chars in every lines) does not go away for a while when I scroll.

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.

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.

Ubuntu :: Window Grid Snap Isn't Working In 11.04?

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.

Debian Multimedia :: Basic Qt App Doesn't Redraw Window Properly

Jan 25, 2011

When I run it, the window shows up but Qt doesn't draw in the background. I end up with phantoms from windows behind it: URL...The window will draw the background correctly when I resize it -- MOST of the time. And sometimes there will be a noticeable delay between resizing and drawing in the window.Am I missing some libraries? Is this a bug? Maybe there's something else I can look up to find a solution?

I'm running sid, my window manager is fluxbox, and my video card is a GeForce FX Go5200 64M.I should note that this works perfectly well on another computer I have that's running sid as well.

General :: Disallow Closing Last Emacs Window Via Window-Manager Close Button

Jul 8, 2011

I like to start Emacs as part of a login script and leave it running for the duration of my login session (which is typically weeks).

I have scripts to call emacs-client which will allow me to use a file-manager or Windows Explorer to locate files and right-click to edit them in Emacs.

I often end up with a lot of emacs windows (frames) open and I like to just be able to close them by clicking on the MS-Windows or KDE X button at the top-right.

The trouble is, if the window is the last one, this will shut down emacs which will lose all kinds of interesting history information.

As a work-around I use C-x 5 0 which won't let me close the last frame but this is often not as convenient as using the mouse

Does anyone know how to configure Emacs so that it can intercept the Window-Close button of the last frame to either request confirmation or simply disallow it?

On MS-Windows, disallowing closing of the last window may cause logoff to hang if emacs is still running but I'm not too worried about that.

OpenSUSE :: QTParted Doesn't Compile Properly

Dec 26, 2010

I just tried to install qtparted ver0.4.5 on my computer to help partitioning my HDs.After doing the "configure/make"-sequence (using unsermake, as required), I received following error during compilation:
"qp_libparted.cpp:1751: error: �ped_free� was not declared in scope",My parted version is 1.9.0-3.7.1 from openSuSE 11.2.My question:

1. Do you know, which other library might contain this "ped_free"-declaration?
2. Any other perted GUI, that might work better (gparted is only available on a live DVD after boot)

General :: How To Open Emacs In Its Own Window

Aug 20, 2010

I am doing some project work and for that using the server at college with ssh connection. Every time I try to open emacs on the terminal after connecting, it opens emacs in the terminal itself i.e. not its own window. On my laptop on which ubuntu is installed, emacs always opens up in its own window an thats how I am used to it. There are several problems when it opens in the terminal like when I try to use commands such as M-V, actually terminal's view menu opens up, its very frustrating. Also I am pretty sure that the college server runs on red hat and has X installed on it. So what do I need to do to get my emacs window back.

Ubuntu :: How To Scroll Down Other Window In Emacs

Oct 26, 2010

I like emacs very much, and especially like using C-M-v and C-M-S-V to scroll other window up and down. It is cool, especially when I am coding and referring documents.The problem is, using C-M-v to scroll down is OK in both terminal and X,but using C-M-S-V to scroll up just works well in X, if I use it in terminal, it behaves scrolling down too.

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 :: ALT+MiddleClick (resize Window) Doesn't Grab Foreground (top) Window

Jan 16, 2011

If you don't know, users are able to quickly resize windows using the "ALT+MiddleClick" key shortcut/combo. Basically, hold the ALT key, and mouse middle click and hold on a window. Move the mouse around, and it will resize the window for you.


1) Open a single Window.

2) Near the bottom-right-hand corner of the window, ALT+MiddleClick and drag. It should resize. Great. It works.

What Doesn't Work:

Now, the problem arises when you have multiple windows open on the desktop, they are "layered". i.e. you might have several windows open "behind" the one currently "up front". Example:

If I try to ALT+MiddleClick the "foreground window", it rarely actually resizes THAT window, and instead jumps one of the windows from behind to the front, and resizes that one instead!


1) Open 3x gnome-terminal windows and say some nautilus window. Place them overtop one another. (like the above image)

2) Try to ALT+MiddleClick the foreground window.

3) Repeat this always trying to grab the foreground window.

For me, the window manager seems to bring some window from the background to the front! Desktop Recording of the Problem: [URL]


* Ubuntu 10.10
* compiz window manager (the problem does not occur with metacity)
* ATI Radeon RV770 (HD4870) w/ open source Radeon Driver (same problem w/ fglrx driver)
* Versions: [URL]

Debian Programming :: Emacs And ECB Missing Python Methods In Methods Window

May 12, 2014

I work with python and I use emacs as my IDE tool. I have been running Debian Squeeze (6.0.9) for some time now with emacs 23.2.1 and ecb 2.32. I am able to access my python methods in the ecb-methods window with no problems. However I recently upgraded my desktop to Debian Wheezy (7.5) running emacs 23.4.1 and ecb 2.40 but I have lost access to the methods in the ecb-methods window. The window is just empty while the others (directories, sources and history) are all populated. I have a second laptop which I decided to upgrade to Debian Jessie, however Jessie recommends emacs 23.4.1 which is running with ecb 2.40 also. The result is the same as on Wheezy.

I have used the ecb menus and googled for a solution or even just a mention that such a problem exists but have come up with nothing. Either I have a unique situation here or am doing something really dumb.

I would like to upgrade to Wheezy or Jessie but I need access to methods in the ecb methods window. How to keep my upgrade and see the methods in the methods window of the ecb system ....

OpenSUSE :: 'maximize Window' Effect - Delay When Maximizing Windows (Gnome)?

Mar 2, 2010

Using gnome I love the desktop effects, except the 'maximize window' effect. There is an annoying delay when I maximize a window. Is there a way to turn this particular effect off, while leaving all the others on. I looked in control center>desktop effects, but the option is not there. The only way I could turn off the maximize effect was unchecking the "enable desktop effects" checkbox. But this turns all effects off. All other effects run smooth and snappy.
