Has anyone managed to make the window snapping function work in LMDE?
I've installed compiz fusion and the extras from synaptic and I'm running metacity as the default window manager.I've followed the steps presented in the ubuntu tutorial: http://www.clickonf5.org/linux/use-aero-snap-windows7-feature-ubuntu/6956.I think these should work but unfortunately it seems that metacity does not allow me to snap them.What I mean is,the mouse gesture doesn't work and the keyboard combination just states that :Metacity-An error has occured.
I uninstalled metacity and installed it back and now it won't even give me the message.
The snap feature does work with the top of the screen though .I've no idea why.It's the right and left sides that don't work.
Does anyone have ideas why this would be a problem?
I'm running kubuntu on vmware player and it seems KDE has the feature and it works well.
Should I try running the KDE DE on LMDE?I've seen a thread about it but the person didn't state if they actually ran it or just intalled it.I mean,if I do,will it be the same as the Mint KDE I've seen? Or should I install Emerald or Enlightenment?
And another question as I'm unsure:I would like to try the other DE's but I'm afraid of messing up my running OS.Is there a way I can restore it if something goes wrong,short of running it in a Virtual machine?
Thank you for your time.
