Ubuntu :: Change 'line Width' For Window Edge Resizing?

Dec 2, 2010

This has bugged me forever.....and I mean really bugged me. The 'pixel width' is too low, such that trying to get my mouse to line up just perfectly on the window edge to get the resize icon, is very difficult. After a bit of searching, I discovered Alt F8, which, for those that don't know, is a resize shortcut and works very well, however, I will still use the 'edge resizing' option quite a bit, and would like to widen the 'line' a few pixels. Is this possible in a user settings file, or is this hardcoded? I am learning to develop, so I wouldn't mind looking into this one as a beginning project. If that's the case, could someone point me to the appropriate package?

Slackware :: Rxvt Or Any Other Console Doesn't Make A New Line At Edge Of Window

Aug 17, 2010

I have a slight problem. Whenever I type something in rxvt, and sometimes it's a loooong something, I end up having to make it span multiple lines, as do you, probably. Anyway, my problem is that if I'm in any console at all, (aside from the TTY console and such) and I try to go multiple lines, this is what happens:


[root@SectionI13] > aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
After the first pass...


aaaaaaaectionI13] > aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
And after the second pass...



Now, I'd be fine and dandy with this, if it wasn't so hard to figure out what I was typing after the first pass, because it's just plain hard to understand a command when there's the second half of it in front of the first half of it.

Programming :: Get Console Window Width - Why Ioctl Always Return 0 Width

Jul 1, 2010

I use ioctl to get the cosole window size (the SSH window).

I use the following code:

When I debug on linux pc, it gives me the correct window width. But after I try it on router (this is my enventual place where my code shall run), ioctl always give me 0 width, that is, numberOfColumnsOfTerminalWindow == 0. but the returnValue is 0 which means that the function call succeeds.

General :: How To Change X-Windows Default Border Width For All Window Frames In Ubuntu

Jun 14, 2010

Way back from Windows 3.x days to the latest 64bit Windows 7 (classic/standard theme)there is a way to make the window edge border wider then 1 pixel.I often use 3 to 5 pixel to make it easy to grab on hi-resolutions displays and hi DPI monitors.There doesn't seem to be an easy or obvious way to do this with the Gnome X-Windowing system?

OpenSUSE :: Window Placement - Resizing From Command Line

Feb 10, 2011

I'm looking for a solution which would allow me to move and resize windows (e.g. rdesktop or firefox, etc...) in X. Preferably independent of either GNOME or KDE. The purpose of this is to be able to perform demo, where certain windows would be placed on a laptop's external monitor, without the obvious mouse cursor movements and resizing.

Ubuntu :: Grabbing Edge Of Windows When Resizing

Aug 17, 2010

I've got a basic install (i.e., nothing fancy, no compwiz or whatever) of 10.4 (64 bit) on my computer, running gnome desktop. I find it very difficult to "grab" the edge of a window, when I want to resize it longer or wider and frequently I just wind up selecting the window below it when I try to drag it wider or longer. Is there a way to increase the border area in which that arrow-pointing-to-edge (as opposed to the usual cursor) appears to make it easier to grab the damn thing?

Ubuntu :: 10.4 - Setting Default Terminal Window Size To Screen Width

Oct 3, 2010

In 10.4 I had set my default terminal size to my screen width - I type some long commands. After running an update this morning, my terminal comes up in the install default size. Using the preferences dialog, I cannot find the control to set the default width. Has it been removed? I hope I'm looking in the wrong place, but I have a chilling feeling that it's been dropped or perhaps just accidentally commented out.

Programming :: Console Window Size - Why Ioctl Always Return 0 Width

I use ioctl to get the console window size (the SSH window). I use the following code:

int returnValue = ioctl(pCommandStructure->terminal, TIOCGWINSZ, &ws);
int numberOfColumnsOfTerminalWindow = ws.ws_col;
When I debug on linux pc, it gives me the correct window width. But after I try it on router (this is my enventual place where my code shall run), ioctl always give me 0 width, that is, numberOfColumnsOfTerminalWindow == 0. but the returnValue is 0 which means that the function call succeeds.

Fedora :: Nano - Editing Lines That Go Past The Window Edge?

Nov 22, 2009

I noticed a problem when editing files with nano. This problem happens if the terminal window that I run nano from is not wide enough to show the full line.By way of example below is part of my grub.conf


title Fedora (
root (hd0,13)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=UUID=47e4c448-8087-4ec6-a67b-814845a598db noiswmd LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us vga=0x370 nouveau.modeset=0
initrd /boot/initramfs-

If we assume the code box above is the size of the terminal window, if I edit anything past what will show as the $ sign in nano, it will automatically add a carriage return. So if we take the kernel line above, if say the screen shows at the end root=UUID=$, if say I were then to add 00 the end of the UUID, it will move everything starting from root=UUID= to a new line. Is there some wrap feature that is enable in Fedora for nano?

Ubuntu :: Show Contents While Resizing A Window?

Jan 24, 2010

Anyone know the trick to getting Ubuntu to show the contents of a window while I resize it? It WAS doing this until I loaded up the drivers for my Nividia Quador 135M (works great!) I'm very happy with my Ubuntu 9.10, I even have all the bouncy window effects running.

Still, I would love get rid of the "faded blue resizing box" and see the contents instead.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Window Resizing Very Slow And Laggy

Sep 16, 2010

Ever since I installed 10.04 my window resizing has been incredibly slow. The type or resizing I mean is when you grab the bottom-right corner or one of the sides. I used to use 9.04 a while back and never had this issue. I have an nVidia 8400. My monitor is a Dell 22" widescreen at 1680x1050 resolution and 60hz. I do not have any visual effects turned on.

Here is my xorg.conf:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder75) Sun Nov 8 21:50:38 PST 2009
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"

Ubuntu :: Change Width Or Size Of Application Launcher In Unity?

Apr 30, 2011

I just started the latest Ubuntu and like Unity a lot but I have a question about the application launcher.I have added a few applications to this launcher but the problem is it now takes up more than the screen. It seems if I scroll through it I can have it scroll down to use more applications.What I'd like to do is either make the application icons smaller so that they can all fit on the screen without me having to scroll or either make it wider so that there can be two vertical rows of application icons.Are there any options to do this or make any other changes to the application launcher?

OpenSUSE :: Resizing Oversized Window To Install Updates

Aug 14, 2011

I installed openSUSE on my macbook pro 7,1. As of now I am trying to update the software, unfortunately, I have encountered a problem. As I hit the "Install Updates" icon, I get a window that gives me a readout of the current updates. No problem there. However, after I click the "Update" button, a second window pops up that gives a very long list of other software that needs to be either removed, installed, or updated for the original updates to be installed. Only problem is the list is so long, it extends beyond the visible desktop. This is a problem because I cannot click on the button to install those updates. The window cannot be re-sized, so there is no way I can reach the button, and I have even tried rotating the desktop 90 degrees (to make it longer), but still to no avail, as the install button is out of reach even then. I don't know how I can update the software if I can't hit the right button. Is there perhaps another way to get around this (like with terminal)?
