Tiling windows is something I loved about Windows systems, and missed sorely when I started using Ubuntu. Forgive me, but I like things lined up neatly and precisely on my desktop, no matter what operating system I’m using. I’m definitely not one of those splattered-desktop Mac-type people.
So for me, to be able to tile windows from the command line would be a wonderful thing. Here’s a teeny little package that will do just that.
sudo dpkg -i; trigger from the command line with
tile. Use the
--help flag to get information on the tiling options, then throw it into your Openbox menu. Instant tiled windows, as easy as pie.
A note: Arch users will have to compile from source, but to be honest, that will only take you about 15 seconds. It’s that small.😉
