View Full Version : [gnome] How do I get the window list to use more screen width?

January 22nd, 2009, 07:09 AM
OK... so I'm tired of having every window down in the window list at the bottom only use 1/5 or less of my screen's width when I have less than 5 windows open. Essentially, if I have 2 windows open... I'd like each window in the window list to use half the available space. Or if I only have Firefox open, Firefox's window title "Ubuntu Forums - Post New Thread - Mozilla Firefox" should be completely visible. Fluxbox can do it, and it really isn't that hard. I've seen some people on gnome-look.org have GNOME setup the way I'm referring to, but I can't figure out how in the world they managed to do that. If you know how, please share the wealth.

Thanks in advance.

I honestly don't think that you can (well easily anyway, after all it is open source). Should the option be available to you it would probably be easily presented.

There might be a code snip it you can run. Hopefully someone knows it so you won't have to create it.
