View Full Version : [ubuntu] Window resize border area

September 1st, 2012, 07:59 PM

is it possible on Ubuntu 11.04 to change (increase) space on windows border, where it is possible to click and change window size? It is so small that I have always problem to catch it.

I don't believe it is. However you can press and hold the alt button plus either the middle mouse button or right mouse button (I've seen both listed and I'm not sure if it's difference between Unity and KDE or what), and you should be able to resize the window just by moving the mouse. Give it a try.

ALT + MMB ! Eureka! Thank you!

Sure it is, the border size is simply defined by the window border theme that you are using. So head to gnome-look.org and pick a new Metacity theme with thicker borders... :)
