View Full Version : [SOLVED] compiz settings for maximise/tiling

March 9th, 2011, 08:31 PM
i have been missing this feature from windows, and had thought i would just have to do without, but today, people have alluded that it is possible to do with compiz. i am referring to the ability to take a window, drag it to the edge of the screen and it to then fill up that side of the screen.. or if drug to the top, maximise itself.

i have looked and messed with settings, and have been able to do something to the effect of dragging my mouse to the edge of the screen will kind of tile windows, but it does it to all my windows, or all of a certain type and whatnot, and i want to do it to a specific window, and then another - for the side by side viewing. it also does not vertically maximise it, only taking a portion of the screen from top to bottom. i have been able to do it this way by having only 2 windows open and using a keyboard to do so, but i would like to be able to use only my mouse.

is there a way to drag one window the the edge of the screen and have it maximise to that half-side of the screen AND/OR drag to the top and have it maximise to fullscreen? i know this isnt windows, but it would greatly help me if this were possible, any help is appreciated. thanks!!

You will need to install wmctrl for this script to work.

sudo apt-get install wmctrl
