Thread: Gnome Desktop Options for "Edges" - Missing Options?

  1. #1

    Default Gnome Desktop Options for "Edges" - Missing Options?

    Hello,

    I have question involving the "Desktop Edges". If anyone could please help...

    In 11.2 if you go to "Control Center" --> "Desktop Effects" --> "Edges", it gave you an option (i used for top left edge) where when I moved my mouse to the top left edge it would "zoom" back and show all workspaces, and from there I could move windows from workspace to workspace by drag-n-dropping them into the workspace I wanted it in.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to get this option back??

    Thanks in advance,
    Matt

    Caf4926,

    Sorry thought I had mentioned that, I am running OpenSuSE 11.4, just recently upgraded to it.

    Yeah that's what I was talking about (your screenshot). In 11.4 they only show you 3 options to choose for the edges:
    1. "General Options: Show Desktop"
    2. "Rotate Cube: Rotate Flip Left"
    3. "Rotate Cube: Rotate Flip Right".
    There used to be an option (can't remember off the top of my head what it was called) that when I moved the mouse to that edge the screen would zoom out showing all the "Workspaces" and from there you could double click a workspace to go to it, and/or you could drag different windows/apps that are running from one workspace to another.

    > uname -a
    Code:
    Linux 2.6.37.6-0.5-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-04-25 21:48:33 +0200 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Are you sure you weren't using KDE. I know what you mean and it's in KDE. I only recently started with gnome. Let me look.

    You got it, we were on the same track lol... So I just came on here to let everyone know that I had figured it out, when I saw your reply that you had did too, thanks.

    I had to download the compizconfig-settings-manager and then enable "Expo"..... Yay!!!

    It has to be my favorite/most useful effect of all of them, unless you only use one Workspace... But if you use multiple, I use 8 workspaces, it's a Great plug-in!!

    Thanks for your help,
    Matt
