Window docking?
 
Hey, first of all, I want you to know that I couldn't decide where to put this (Newbie or here) but finally I choosed this forum.

I wonder if there's any kind of "Window docking tool" (My bad English and lack of words) like the one Mandrake/Mandriva uses. My first contact with Linux were made through Mandrake 2005 rc2 LE and I liked the "docking"-function were diffrerent windows were able to dock to eachother - is this possible in Ubuntu to? Perhaps some hidden setting or a program I missed?

Thanks alot, cheers :)

Perhaps it's a KDEs feature (don't know for sure)

I suspect that you may have been using SuperKaramba? If so, you may be looking for something like gdesklets?

Well, not really those things, as long as I didn't miss something on that site. I don't really know if my discription is good enough, but it might be as said above, a function included in KDE (?).

I tried Google, but I'm not even sure what to search for :rolleyes:

Do you mean windows snapping to the screen edge or to the edge of another window? That is something that's native to KDE, I'm not sure if gnome does it since I never use gnome, but maybe somebody who does would know. I'd be surprised if there wasn't a way to turn this on in gnome.

That was exactly what I meant, and actually both of them. So I'd better find someone who uses Gnome then, and keep my eyes open, thanks mate :)
