No window grouping options in kde4.4 from alien bob
I just installed the kde4.4 packages put together by alien bob, I really like some of the improvements! Thanks for putting the packages together!
Unfortunately I can't get window grouping to work. From everything I've read I should have a new option called something like "Group window" in the right click menu on the title bar but this is not there. I also can't middle click on the title bar to drag it, it does nothing.
In my settings (System Settings -> Window behavior -> Window behavior -> Titlebar actions) The action for middlebutton is "Start Window Tab Drag" which I take to be the right setting for this. However even if I assign that action to a different mouse key I still don't get the window tab drag behavior.
Does anyone have any ideas? I was upgraded to the latest slackware current and I followed the instructions on alien bob's site exactly with the exception that I changed them for x86 instead of x86_64.
Window grouping works here... I have a menu item for this in the menu when I right-click a window's title-bar. I have enabled grouping of application windows by default, so my two firefox instances are cuddling up nicely, as two tabs in one common window.
The "start windowtab drag" using the middle-mouse does not start dragging the tab here. What it does instead is cycle through the tabs of a grouped window. Does not look like the advertised behaviour.
Works for me too, but I've disabled this feature, because of lack of functionality in compiz (group menu not shown - kde4 support is still in development) With grouping enabled, I had trobles to find the window I was searching for
