I am using 10.10 and I would like to set up Hot Corners. Can I do this with Compiz? How? I tried Ubuntu Tweak but it did not let me choose a specific application to run on Hot Corners (it only show windows/workspaces etc.).
- Install CompizConfig Settings Manager (ccsm) from the software centre or by issuing command
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
To assign custom action to corner search for the 'commands' plugin. Enable it. In the options for that plugin, you get several lines where you can enter commands, and then in the 'edge bindings' tab, you can set hot corners that will run that command. For instance, you want to launch Firefox by pointing in the top right corner. Enter 'firefox' in 'Command line x', then in 'edge bindings', click on the button marked 'none' for that command, and enable the relevant corner.
NOTE: 'Button bindings' is also useful, giving you the option to run the command by going to a corner and clicking with the mouse.
Brightside :It is a tool to assign various actions to the corners and edges of your screen especially designed for those who do not use Compiz.
Brightside allows you to assign configurable actions to occur while you rest the mouse in a corner of the screen. Currently available actions comprise:
Fade out volume
Prevent screensaver starting
Start screensaver and lock screen
Enter DPMS standby mode
Enter DPMS suspend mode
Enter DPMS off mode
Dim laptop backlight
Available in the Software center.
I understand your intention as: You want to give commands by using the mouse. Another lovely tool is easystroke. You can create your own gestures and open applications, initiate key commands and so on. Im am using easystroke and it speeds up my work and makes my computerlife easier.
