Open applications centre screen in cinnamon?

Postby xircon on Sun Aug 26, 2012 6:57 am

Is it possible to force all programs to open in the centre of the screen? For example, nautilus opens in the top left corner and I have to drag it to the centre.

Been through dconf/gconf settings - nothing obvious.

Hi Steve :)

I had been looking for this solution as well in Cinnamon or Shell (for a long time).. :lol:
Open in Center is quite necessary with a large monitor. Something I really missed.
Clem would do well to add this feature to Cinnamon.

Never found a solution.
Went back to XFCE, and am happier there. Forgot how customizable it really was (with some digging around). Add Compiz and many more options.
Good luck finding a fix.

Not for Cinnamon, but a workaround for Gnome Shell.

-------------------

Just found a shell extension 'Put Windows" :arrow: https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/39/put-windows/
that allows settings for a window to be centered with a keybinding.

Enable extension.
Open "Gnome Shell Extensions Preferences" > Keyboard Shortcuts> Move to center/maximized>click on 'modify'>select keybinding of your choice.

Window does not "open centered" but, moves there with keystroke. Toggles between centered/maximized.

Still hoping to find how to 'open window centered' by default..... :) :?
