Is there anyway to dock Pidgin to the edge of the screen, so that other windows are created beside it, like the Windows version of Pidgin when it is always on top? I found some information online about using Compiz - Place Window function, but it didn’t work.
Take a look at Devil’s Pie
I’ve been trying to use it, but I don’t know what to do.
It surely looks horrible for non programers.
Ok all you have to do is to create a directory called devilspie in your home directory. Then make text files with extension .ds. Then put the codes into them.
Did you see this? There are many easy examples. And a complete list of available functions.
