No vertical edge tiling, missing alt-right-click to resize?

Postby argodar on Thu Jul 26, 2012 1:58 pm

Hello,

I've installed linux mint 13 xfce, and I'm having 2 problems:

1. only vertical edge tiling works (top and bottom tiling), horizontal tiling doesn't work (nothing happens when I drag a window to the left or right)
2. XFCE usually has the ability to resize windows when pressing ALT and doing a right-click drag with the mouse. This doesn't work in mint 13 xfce.

I've been looking through all the settings and couldn't find anything related. Are these known issues?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Well I found the solution to both problems.

1. disable "Wrap workspaces when dragging a window off the screen" in "Settings -> Window Manager -> Advanced" makes vertical tiling work
2. I'm running the mint 13 xfce guest in virtualbox in a mint 13 cinnamon host. Pressing alt activates window resizing in the host and cancels out the alt-drag shortcut in the guest. When running the same guest in a windows XP host, alt-dragging works fine. Changing the key from alt to ctrl in the guest makes it possible to ctrl-drag in the guest

But can you please tell - _where_ to change it from alt to ctrl or win-key? I remember i've seen this option in Mate, but can't find it in Cinnamon.

Then ask your question in a cinnamon thread, and not in Xfce :p
