mint13- no more auto window-halfing upon edge snap

Post by pepperminty » Fri Jun 01, 2012 1:49 pm

When I was using Mint 11, whenever I dragged a window to the left or right edge of the screen, the window would become half the size of the screen. But in Mint 13, I don't get that anymore.

If I somehow turn it back on, will it take much more CPU power?

I am also interested in some of this information. Not so much how much power it will take, but how to get it turned on.

Upgrading to Maya I have found that if I drag the window to the top of the screen it auto maximizes the file. I haven't been able to figure out how I am supposed to do the same thing for the left and right side.

Since we like having other desktops in Linux I am guessing just dragging a window defaults to moving it to another desktop. So if I wanted to have it pop to the right/left half of the current desktop is there a default key combo or something that is the default that I can't find?

Thanks for any information.
