It may also use many features of ssh, such as public key authentication and compresā€ sion. sftp connects and logs into the specified host, then ...

Go into System Settings, then into "Window Tiling and Edge Flip" and check the box marked "Maximize, instead of tile, when dragging window to top edge". Tried it on my Linux Mint 16 installation and it worked flawlessly.

Same way, but you need to run a ssh server on the Windows machine (and make sure you are not firewalling the connection). See - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18292/what-are-some-good-ssh-servers-for-windows Edit: If you need a windows ssh client, use PuTTy http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

Most modern dekstops are EMWH compliant. You can use wmctrl to control those and the windows on them, e.g.: wmctrl -a <WIN> to activate a window by switching to its desktop and raising it (<WIN> can be various things, by default a string match on the window title, see the wmctrl man page).

Wmctrl This is kind of related but you could change the text in the title bar of this mystery application using the command wmctrl. Example Say I ran the application gvim. It shows up as follows when I list the open windows. $ wmctrl -l 0x04402eed -1 grinchy N/A 0x00c00003 -1 grinchy Bottom Expanded Edge Panel 0x00c00028 -1 grinchy Top Expanded Edge ...

This does not actually answer my question (I still do not know the keybindings syntax for a right mouse click), but this did solve my problem, so I'm leaving this here for anyone who stumbles across it in the future: gsettings set org.cinnamon.desktop.wm.preferences resize-with-right-button true Apparently there is a setting for holding alt, right-clicking ...

If all else fails, you can change the setting in the configuration file manually: window.justify in theme.cfg can be left, right. or center. (source: Frank McCormick on the fluxbox-users mailing list) System-wide themes live in /usr/share/fluxbox/styles, user-local themes live in ~/.fluxbox/styles/.

It's really not very clear what isn't working for you. If you just want to run a command remotely, sshpass can help you. Maybe you just have the syntax a little bit wrong. For example, the following command will login to a remote server, check the uptime and print the uname: sshpass -p '<password>' ssh <username>@<myIp> "uptime;uname ...

Detecting windows on the current desktop, and resizing them can both be done using wmctrl To list all the windows you can use: wmctrl -l A quick example to resize the current active window to a size of 500 x 500 at position 0 0 would be: wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -e 0,0,0,500,500 Finally, if you want to get the current screen size to help with your tiling ...

Is this a question for FVWM1 or FVWM2? Here is how I added a custom button of an arrow pointing down to my FVWM1 .fvwmrc file: ButtonStyle : 1 8 40x20@1 40x50@1 20x50@1 50x80@1 80x50@0 60x50@0 60x20@0 40x20@1 This makes, in the upper left corner of all of the windows, an arrow pointing down. Now, it's also important that this button is visible, so we ...

Take a look at the Wine wiki. There is a topic specifically about this exact question, titled: Running Adobe Photoshop on Wine. For CS6 there doesn't appear to be any info. Searching a bit more I found this AskUbuntu Q&A titled: Installing Photoshop CS5 on Ubuntu 12.10 using Wine, which guided me to this link back into the Wine project's site, App DB. ...

One of the really powerful things about GNOME 3 is the ability to use javascript-based addons to add functionality. Though I am not entirely sure this addon will completely fulfill what you're looking for, I imagine it is about as close as you're going to get. Put Windows is meant to be a completely customizable implementation of compiz's put plugin. ...
