View Full Version : [gnome] Getting rid of the bottom-right window resize handle

May 3rd, 2011, 08:52 PM
Is there a way to make bottom-right window resize handles disappear in Ubuntu 11.04? I run a tiling window manager and thus have no use for them, especially since they can distract and cover information. How do I make them permanently go away?

Any help will be greatly appreciated :)

I'll help myself :-)

Put this in ~/.gtkrc-2.0:

style "default-style"
GtkWindow::resize-grip-height = 0
GtkWindow::resize-grip-width = 0

class "GtkWidget" style "default-style"

Thank you very much mpacula

this fixed my issue as well :) I am so glad you spent the time to post the fix instead of leaving it open

It works!
For me, the file did not already exist, so I had to create it. :D
The triangular resize handle at the bottom right didn't really fit well with my Xmonad or Fvwm2 Configs... ;)
