XGL quirks...


Just wondering what's going on -- I just installed xgl and compix in Suse 10.1 yesterday and am noticing that every once in a while I will see the windows (open apps) on my screen get shrunk down and displayed (tile format) all at once. If I click on one, it gets focus and fills the screen.

This seems to be a "feature" but I'm not sure what I'm doing to trigger it. I can't reproduce it.

I think you're talking about the "Scale" effect on that page. Try to reproduce it by moving your pointer to the top right corner of the screen.

I'd personally rather have the top left since I keep my task bar at the bottom of the screen and the minimize, maximize, and close buttons are in the top right...
