Is it possible to adjust the snap feature in 11.04? I want something like 2/3 1/3 instead of 1/2 1/2 of the screen.


This feature is controlled by the Grid plugin of Compiz. I have seen no way to adjust the size of windows when the snap feature resizes your windows though.

You can use CompizConfig Settings Manager Install ccsm (also known as ccsm) to alter its settings.

Once you've snapped a window, you can resize it using the Grid plugin's keybindings. The defaults (taken from CompizConfig Settings Manager Install ccsm) are:

Default Grid plugin keybindings

For example: if you've snapped a window to the left half of the screen, press Ctrl+Alt+

to resize it to 1/3 of your screen's width. You can repeat the keystroke to resize it to 1/4, 3/4, 2/3 and 1/2 of your screen's width.
