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.
First, we see some information from man sftp: DESCRIPTION sftp is an interactive file transfer program, similar to ftp(1), which performs all operations over an encrypted ssh(1) transport. It may also use many features of ssh, such as public key authentication and compres‐ sion. sftp connects and logs into the specified host, then ...
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 ...
There is screen to do that with (virtual) terminal applications, and there is xpra for X11.
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 ...
I also asked this question on stackoverflow and got a good answer that I marked as the correct one and upvoted: http://stackoverflow.com/a/26060527/1707904 This applies also to compiz. There are a couple of ways you can get these informations in some ways: wnckprop --xid=$(xdotool getactivewindow) Otherwise, you can just mix the Absolute value you ...
The soft way to request an X11 application to close its window and possibly then exit is to send it a WM_DELETE_WINDOW message. Xdotool doesn't appear to have a way to do this. You can do it in Perl with X11::Protocol::WM. Untested: perl -MX11::Protocol -MX11::Protocol::WM -e '$X = X11::Protocol::new(); X11::Protocol::WM::set_wm_protocol($X, ...
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/.
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 ...
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 ...
