Thanks for making the changes to allow it to work better with Twinview enabled. It's quite usable now!

 Big Bug!

 
 by EmilBB on: Jun 18 2010
 
Score 50%

Hi, I got a bug the first time I used X tile, it was version 1.5.1.1, I am running Ubuntu 10.4 with compiz. After about 5 minutes where I tried it, then suddenly the screen flickers and it now looks like this:

http://www.ubuntu-pics.de/bild/86329/desk_1_005_YvuKjj.png

http://www.ubuntu-pics.de/bild/86330/desk_1_004_Oj2TjS.png

and without compiz, like this:
http://www.ubuntu-pics.de/bild/86331/desk_1_002_lntwSC.png

As you can see, half my desktop-background has been "moved" to the right, so that the left-side of the screen now is to the right, and where the left should have been, it is transparent - until another window moves over it, then it becomes the mess that one of the pics show.

I have no idea what to to. I tried uninstalling, I tried running without compiz, but I have no idea how to troubleshoot this...

Nice idea for a program though, hope you can fix it! thanks!

It seems that this happened because the desktop was listed between the normal windows and you tiled it as well. As I don't see the desktop listed I cannot understand what filter to add to never show it, if anybody can see it please contact me and help me to add the filter.

The naultius_desktop comes up as a window to tile, so I added nautilus to the filter and worked around my problem, but now I cannot tile any folder windows.

can you send me a mail with a screenshot of x-tile listing the nautilus desktop? then can you write what distro and version you are using? thanks.

 Cool app, but...

 
 by Brutus180 on: Jul 14 2010

First I'd like to say this is a pretty cool application. It works well under Ubuntu 10.04 and I update X-Tile regularly.

However, I have 3 problems you may want to check into:

1. When installing the .deb it resets my Gnome Panel and I loose some applets when it restarts. I have to go into the system monitor and kill them because they are still running in the background which deletes their settings. This happens every time with Panflute and Music Applet.
It happens when I Do Not have the X-Tile applet in the panel.

2. X-Tile is not compatible with GlobalMenu applet. With this activated I get no menu bar in X-Tile and no menus in GlobalMenu. I have to choose "Show Local Menu In Window" option in GlobalMenu, and then open X-Tile to see the menu bar.

3. I use a transparent panel and the X-Tile applet has gray rather than transparent parts. All other applets accept the transparent settings ("fake" transparency, not rgba).

Feature Request: There is an option to choose "Workspace", but how about Viewport? Perhaps a toolbar button to filter between current viewport and all viewports? As of now I don't think I've ever used the select all button because I've generally got many windows scattered around 4 viewports.

I should say that I use this regularly and it is good. This last update seems to have made it much more Compiz friendly and I don't seem to be having any more overlap problems. Thanks!

I'm sorry I don't understand what you mean with the viewports/what the viewports are, can you explain better?

What I mean by "Viewport" is virtual desktop, Ubuntu comes with 2 of them by default I believe. Like what you see with the "Expo" plugin of compiz.

Here is a picture of my 4 virtual desktops:

http://a.imageshack.us/img837/1152/workspaces001.png

Now here is a picture of X Tile on viewport #2, in which only Firefox and Totem are open, but X Tile shows every open window on every virtual desktop:

http://a.imageshack.us/img541/3894/workspace1002.png

The "Only Current Workspace" option in X Tile only seems to affect whether "x-nautilus-desktop" is shown in the list. Either this separates physical monitors or is a bug as far as I can tell. I only have 1 minitor so I cannot test this.

So the feature request is this: A setting that would allow X Tile to automatically show/affect only the applications on a certain virtual desktop, like just Firefox and Totem from my 2nd screenshot. So, for example, when using the panel applet to quickly tile some windows it would not tile all 8 widows but only the 2 (Firefox and Totem) without having to open the main X Tile window and selecting them.

Hopefully that explained it a little better, if not let me know, if so let me know what you think. If this is a feature and I am somehow missing it I apologize, please let me know that too!

Compiz is not currently supported (if you're using compiz there are tilers written specifically for compiz) to achieve what you want turn off compiz and select "Only current workspace"

without compiz workspaces are supported - compiz uses a different method (viewports) which we don't support.

Ok, I did not realize it was not compatible with Compiz at all. I know there's a tiling plugin within Compiz, but it's not very good, certainly not as good as X Tile.

I have not heard of any apps written for Compiz tiling, but I will investigate since you say there are some.

I'll do some testing trying to get the compiz viewport information, if I will succeed I will integrate the "only current workspace" with the "only current compiz viewport".

That would be great! I did not mean that it wasn't compatible "at all", I just meant that feature. I guess it didn't come out right, sorry about that!

X-Tile appears to be working correctly with Compiz viewports now. Thank you very much! You have made your application much more useful to me now, and I'm sure others will appreciate it too.

Thanks again!

 Divvy clone?

 
 by snoxu on: Jan 12 2011
 
Score 50%

To the creator of this applet: have you ever thought of doing a clone of Divvy?

Its a nice little grid tiler for OSX and Windows.

(Apparently there's another clone of Divvy for Windows called Windy. Never tried it though.)

Just a thought.

Anyhow kudos on X-tile. Nice little applet.
