Description Gérard Milmeister 2006-06-26 15:51:27 EDT
I have a Xinerama (resp. Twinview) setup with two
monitors. The metacity placement policy produces inpredictable
and sometimes annoying results. I found the manual placement patch
from http://intgat.tigress.co.uk/rmy/metacity/index.html
to be exactly what I want. The patch allows enabling using
gconf. It would be very useful to include this patch in
the default metacity package.

Oops, that wasn't the patch I meant.
This is it:
It places the new window on the screen, that the mouse is currently in.
Comment 2 Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2006-09-06 16:11:54 EDT
This patch should be submitted to the upstream project for consideration. I am
not necessarily opposed to the idea, but it's really upstream's call.

Note that setting "disable_workarounds" to true has significant problems in
practice, so we are not going to do that.
