Ubuntu :: Changing Window Size By Dragging Edges

Jul 30, 2011

I find that changing the window size is extremely difficult. The area to click and then drag is very tiny and requires very precise arrow positioning. Is there a way to increase this area?

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?

General :: Top/left Edges Of Screen In Virtualbox Act Like Bottom/right Edges

Apr 28, 2010

I have Virtualbox running on Windows Vista, and Debian running inside Virtualbox. Everything's running great, for the most part. Everything looks correct.

But when I'm in full-screen mode, the top edge seems to act (to the mouse) like it's the bottom edge, and the left edge seems to act like the right edge. For example, if I click in the middle of the desktop and drag left, as if to select some icons, when I hit the very leftmost pixel of the screen, the selection (but not the mouse pointer) jumps to the far right edge of the screen).

For the left edge, it's not such a big deal, but not having the top edge is kind of annoying: it means I can't select things from the menu in my top panel by slamming the mouse against the top of the screen.

Ubuntu :: Dragging Mplayer Video By Clicking Anywhere On Window?

Oct 13, 2010

I've just upgraded Kubuntu from Lucid to Maverick and, as i've added the backports repo, I also upgraded KDE from 4.5.1 to 4.5.2It mostly went fine, but there's one little annoyance i've noticed. I used to be able to drag an mplayer video around the screen by clicking anywhere on it, but since the upgrade that doesn't work any more and I now have to drag the title bar specifically

Ubuntu :: Dragging Window Locks Screen And Computer

Mar 2, 2011

I just installed 10.04.2 Desktop. Full install, reformatted all partitions. Hardware: Dell Optiplex GX200 with Dell 781p monitor Dell mouse and kybd.

All appeared to install well and as expected.

The computer has locked up 4 times, now. Whenever I attempt to use the mouse to drag a window to a different place on the desktop the monitor goes half black (bottom half of screen) and I loose the ability to use the mouse or keyboard to provide input. The only recourse is to shut it down hard and boot up again.

Ubuntu :: GNOME - Left-clicking Anywhere In Window Results In Dragging?

Mar 25, 2010

When I click the window with the left mouse button my window gets dragged, instead that the GUI elements are getting selected.

For example: Opening Firefox and selecting the address field doesn't activate the field to write in. Clicking buttons is impossible. Any action in the window seems like blocked. I'm working this around by holding Shift + Left mouse button; then it's possible to activate the GUI element. Observation: This happened just today when I switched on my computer and seems to affect only me as my user! Logging in as another user doesn't bring up this error. Everything works as usual as possible. The Gnome Panel is not affected. Closing, minimizing/maximizing windows is possible. Clicking anywhere on the window with the right mouse button opens the window options menu, not the expected options. Hovering over a button seems to be recognized as it changes its properties, but clicking still drags the window. Restarting X and restarting Ubuntu doesn't change anything.

Fedora :: Window Display Messed Up When Dragging Left

Jan 16, 2011

I have a bit of a problem w/ the windowing UI when I drag any window left, the display gets messed up (see attached screen shot). It doesn't matter what the program is, even happens in explorer. I've done some searching of the Internetz and this form and all I could find was this bug, that doesn't have any updates on it:

Does anyone know of a fix for this? I can make the lines go away by triggoring a repaint (by either dragging another window on top of this one or minimizing and maximizing the problem window, but it's still a bit annoying.I'm running Fedora 14 and have ran all of the updates it prompted me to run.

Ubuntu :: Stuttering Window Dragging - Drag Windows Around Cursor Shudders And Shakes The Wondows Won't Move Smoothly

Apr 21, 2011

I'm fairly new to ubuntu and I've been messing around with customizing my desktop/UI over the past week or so and I must have messed something up. After I got sick of how slow Wallpapoz was to change backgrounds between workspaces (I'm using GNOME) I turned on the Wallpaper plugin in Compiz and turned off the nautilus desktop. That worked great for the backgrounds but now whenever I try to drag windows around the cursor shudders and shakes and the wondows won't move smoothly. I eventually get them to where I want them to go but it's very annoying.

So far, I have re-enabled the nautilus desktop and reinstalled nautilus with synaptic, neither of which did anything.

Ubuntu :: Changing Ramdisk Size For 9.10?

Feb 17, 2010

Wine is one of the coolest things I've ever seen, but unfortunately it's still not enough to suit my needs as version 1.38 can't install any of the .NET libraries.

I'm trying to boot windows 7 on virtual box, but it seems to demand quite a bit of memory. The "recommended" amount is 512MB, and upon checking my kernel only has 488MB total ram with not much room to spare:

billy@billy-desktop:~$ free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 488 462 25 0 53 193
-/+ buffers/cache: 216 271
Swap: 1939 17 1921

I've tried giving the virtual machine memory sizes in the area of 192-256MB, but that's way too much and the system locks up and aborts from it. Memory sizes in the area of 128MB is just too small and it throws an error that there just isn't enough ram to boot. So the only thing I can do to make this work is to increase the size of the ramdisk for my host OS so I can give more to the virtual machine (not to mention things like flash animations are horribly slow and I'd like to see them get more fluid).

I see that I have 16 ramdisks available to me:

billy@billy-desktop:~$ ls -l /dev/ram*
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 1, 0 2010-02-17 09:54 /dev/ram0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 1, 1 2010-02-17 09:54 /dev/ram1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 1, 10 2010-02-17 09:54 /dev/ram10


I looked at some guides here and there, but apparently my setup isn't quite the same. I don't have a menu.lst file in boot/grub, and I don't have a grub.conf file anywhere. So I don't know what file I'm supposed to edit for this.

Ubuntu :: Changing Size Of Windows?

Aug 2, 2010

Whenever I try to change the sizes of the windows on my screen I get a cursor which is a double arrow. There seems to be only one X- or Y coordinate on the screen where I can pick the side of the window, it seems to be only one pixel wide. This makes it hard to get hold of the side to change the size of the window. Is there a way to enlarge this location to a few pixels so it is easier to point the mouse to the right location?

Ubuntu :: Mounting NTFS Changing The Block Size?

Mar 31, 2010

I have reformatted my hard drive with allocation size 64K for a better performance on my WDTV HD media player(dealing with large files). When I mount this drive on Linux, the mount tells me that "blksize=4096".If I keep writing files usinghis default etting(blksize=4096) to my NTFS formatted hard drive, will my WDTV be able to benefit from the performance improvement of 64k allocation size ? Should I try and mount my hard drive with a larger blksize ?I did some research on google but couldn't find an option to increase the blksize when mounting an NTFS pre-formatted drive.

Debian :: Lenny - Changing Console Font Size?

Dec 31, 2010

So I set up that OS I was talking about, everything I need, staying away from the "Startx" command, and it's working very very awesomely except for ONE little problem. The console font size is too big for me, and honestly I don't know how to change that. Coming out of Ubuntu, I'm realizing I don't know as much about config files as I think I do :P

Any way I can change the font size? When I use the GParted live cd, I see a line in the start up that mentions changing the frame buffer to 700 x 48 or something, I'll get specifics soon (computer's not on me) and it makes the font and everything just how I like it.

Ubuntu :: Changing The Window Border Color?

I have been struggling to change the border color of the windows on Ubuntu without actually changing the theme (e.g., Keeping the "Human" theme, but having the frame borders be a different color than orange.) I have searched Google for some help, but found nothing that works. I have gone to System > Preferences > Appearance and set the 'Selected Items' color [URL] but to no avail. Only the controls changed color, not the window borders.

Ubuntu :: Changing Window Manager Before Login?

Just been looking at an 11.04 bootable CD, where I was reminded of the continued existence of xfce. "Must try that again!" I thought, and installed it through the Software Centre on my 10.04 laptop. I washoping/expecting that xfce would then become an option in the Sessions pulldown at log-on, but no such luck. What should I be doing? It is not my intention to switch to xubuntu, just to take another look at an alternative window manager.
