After getting annoyed by it for the seemingly hundredth time, I tried to turn off Sticky Edges today. I couldn't!
Sticky edges, as I'm defining it: when moving the mouse cursor between monitors, it is 'stuck' on the edge until you've moved the mouse enough to push through the barrier. AFAIK, this was a feature you could turn off in Unity, but not in Gnome?
(To get across I have to move the mouse almost as though there were another monitor to cross, to get to the other one.)
(edit to add: this only is an issue in one direction, from the external monitor to the primary (laptop) one. Going from primary to external has no problem.)
Some extensive googling has only led me to these two posts, and neither solve the issue.
This one starts talking more about edge-tiling (which is when the window you're dragging snaps to full-screen or half-screen depending on which monitor edge you drag to, top or sides respectively)
And this one has it as a bug report that seems unfixed?
I've tried all the variations that these posts suggest,
- Moving the dock from both displays to one,
- Changing the dock to the bottom (so that it ostensibly shouldn't interrupt the mouse,
- turning off the auto-hide of the dock (assuming the sticky edge was connected to the auto-hide behavior)
I've also tried looking in dconf for something to disable.
So far, nothing. Has anyone else solved this on their own?
