View Full Version : [ubuntu] Collect Multiple Windows in one

February 8th, 2011, 04:14 PM

i wondered if there is no gnome Software with it would be possible to "Collect" multiple Windows together.

As 4 Terminals or 2 Terminals and a gedit.

I dont think about tabbed views, i think about viewing them side by side.
I know that it would be _possible_ to this by hand, but it would be *much* easier doing this with an application. I often want to see 4 terminals at a time and its really unhandy to do this by hand :)

Does anyone have a clue on what im talking? :P

Thanks for reading this,

Compiz has lots of plugins doing just that, don't know exactly which one.
Install "compizconfig-settings-manager" and start it from the menu or type "ccsm" from a terminal window.

Ok i tried out every single plugin of ccsm now, but there was not a single one which could be used for my problem.

Has anyone another idea about this?
Or thas anyone know the exact name of the compiz plugin (and i dont think abour magnetic edges and stuff like that)

Install the package compiz-fusion-plugins-extra.

Then open up the Compiz Config settings manager and scroll to the bottom, to the section "Window Management".

The plugin to use for this functionality you require is "Group and Tab Windows".

That can do exactly what you described (I think), and more.
