Submitted:  Oct 29 2009
Updated:  Jan 4 2013

Description:

Ctrlwm is a customisable tool for automatic windows positioning and sizing (e.g. tiling, resizing like Windows Aero Snap, and much more). It can be driven through either command line or screen corner/border actions (see daemon mode).

Tested with Metacity, Openbox, KDE, XFCE.

Features:
- Tile windows (different layouts)
- Resize and reposition window to take left/right/top/bottom half of the screen depending on the mouse position (similar to Aero Snap)
- Resize and reposition window to take specific sector defined by the grid depending on the mouse position, or move it to another workspace
- Go to empty workspace (Create one if there's none)
- Switch to next window (like Alt-Tab, but without bugs/features)


Installation and setup:
- Download archive
- If you want to recompile, make sure you have installed xorg-dev, libglib2.0-dev for Ubuntu or corresponding for your system. Compile with ./configure make make install.
- As an Arch Linux user please visit https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ctrlwm/

Otherwise, just use the included binary version
- Copy binary somewhere you'd like to run it from (for system-wide installation in Ubuntu use the command line: cp PATH_TO/ctrlwm /usr/local/bin/
- Copy the .ctrlwm.rc file to your home directory, then (optionally) edit it to suit your needs. The options dcw, dch might be of most interest, for setting current window manager's decoration sizes (to avoid overlaping windows). For the rest read in-file comments
- Run ctrlwm without parameters or ctrlwm --help for usage, remember you need to use -mn X Y option if you did not set dcw, dch options in .ctrlwm.rc (see previous)
- Run ctrlwm with desired options and enjoy

Hints:
- You can use the software with system key shortcuts, mouse strokes or panel starters.

0.8.0.9 Different gui, cleaned up code, removed some bugs, some rc settings changed

I like this app. It's small, but very useful, especially when you have a widescreen.
