Is it possible to get Ubuntu to continuously resize a window and it's content? Looking in the
CompizConfig Settings Manager under re-size window it has the options: Normal, Outline, Rectangle, Stretch neither of which do this.
Normal does this.
It's ridiculously CPU-intensive though, which is why it defaults to rectangle.
I know you (Kit Sunde) don't need all this, but for everyone else..
This assumes you have CompizConfig Setting Manager (compizconfig-settings-manager) installed.
- Go to System -> Preferences -> CompizConfig Settings Manager if running classic Gnome, or search for CompizConfig Settings Manager in the Dash if running Unity.
Find the Resize Window plugin; it's under Window Management. Open it and go to the General tab. The top setting is Default Resize Mode.
- Normal resizes the windows content on-the-fly.
- Outline doesn't change the window until you release it. It shows an empty rectangle to indicate the size the window will be.
- Rectangle is the same as Outline, except the rectangle is filled in.
- Stretch doesn't resize the window on-the-fly, but instead stretches the window content as if you were stretching a video.
In all cases, the window content should continue to change as appropriate, e.g. a video will continue playing.
Normal resize doesn't work well in Ubuntu Classic. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/803296
