I want my program's windows to appear in the center of the screen because when i start a program it all was hides the dock. or if the dock i allways on under them.
And im talking unity here:)
In CompizConfig Settings Manager go to:
Window Management -->Place windows.
For me this fixes the problem in 11.04.
I guess you can forget about that, right now it's not possible to center windows and apps on the screen. That's why I haven't upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 yet.
In Ubuntu 10.04.2 you could do it buy either editing the gconf-editor.
smart to centered, and
Algorithm to use for window placement (0 = Cascade, 1 = Centered, 2 = Smart, 3 = Maximize, 4 = Random)
Or simply by using the compizconfig-settings-manager.
Now both methods do not work under Ubuntu 11.04 anymore!
It freaking sucks to be honest with you, I don't know why linux users are so obsessed with windows popping up on the right or left...
Kind regards, Stuart
To force new windows to be centred set
to true in the gconf configuration editor.
