While I can make my Debian Linux look like just about anything including a Mac, various versions of Windows, and more, I have a fairly lightly modified desktop. I look for speed and flexibility and it shows.
However sometimes things just don't go quite right.
I use a trackball, not a mouse. I need it for graphics work both here on the blog and elsewhere. The Hand Tremors we all have mean that sometimes something I do will jitter.
Sometimes I just get a little too close to the edges of the windows.
Either way it means now I have a window I am trying to move to a corner or a side has just exploded full screen or is strobing large and small in some fit of electronic insanity.
Lets stop that.
In XFCE 4:
- Click Applications Menu.
- Mouse over to Settings, then down to Window Manager Tweaks.
- Click on the "Accessibility" tab.
- Click the check box off on "Automatically tile windows when moving toward the screen edge".
- Click close.
That's it you're done.
Enjoy. No more weird strobing.
If you want it back, simply reverse the steps and click the box back on.
