I'd like to have the functionality described in this video. Basically, use super+scrollup/down or pinch in/out on my touchpad to zoom in a certain area of the screen like on a phone or tablet.
Sadly I need compiz to get the described effect. How can I zoom in without using compiz?
I'm using Arch Linux with bspwm + compton.
What I've tried:
xzoom, which can zoom but spawns a new window instead of zooming in on the spot. Not what I want.
kmag, pretty much the same as
xzoombut with a nice GUI.
- Magnifier, where you can mouse over an area to zoom that area of the screen, which is not really what I want. I want to actually zoom in the whole screen like in the video above.
There's are open issues in compton's repositories:
