View Full Version : [ubuntu] apple-like window switching

April 15th, 2010, 06:19 PM

i was wondering if anyone knew of a way to switch through windows similar to how a leopard equipped mac does:

you can move the mouse to a specific corner of the screen where then the windows cascade and you simply click on the window you want focused.

also, if this can also apply to workspaces as well, that'd be awesome.

Answer to both Windows, and workspaces, is yes.

For windows, use the "Scale" plugin in Compiz.

..and for desktops, the "Expo" plugin is what you are looking for.

Both allow you to trigger the action using a screen corner. Install the CompizConfig Settings Manager (if you haven't got it already) to enable these plugins and adjust their settings.
