The terminal (and other applications) borders seem to be only 1 pixel wide which makes them almost impossible to click. I am aware that alt+right click has the same function, but I need the borders able to be clicked. I found this solution:


but unfortunately it did not work for me (i'm using Greybird as a theme, I tried the same fix with Bluebird and it also didn't work). I am using Xubuntu 12.04 xfce by the way. Any help would be appreciated!

Some of the other themes provide a border that is easier to grab. For example, I use Daloa on one of my Xfce systems. So unless you really need Greybird for some reason, I recommend trying a few of the window manager themes to find one you like.


Alternatively, use <Alt+Left Click> to move windows and <Alt+Right Click> to resize windows, which doesn't require that you click on the edge at all.
