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

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
