There are already a number of topics relating to the
resize problem but they all date to older versions of ubuntu and their respective answers and solutions did not work in my case.
So I have a 14.04 ubuntu that has
ubuntu-desktop installed with the
alt+left-click move window works flawlessly and I would like to use the
alt + right-click to resize the window.
Upon noticing that it does not work I looked in the settings menu and could find the actions in the keyboard settings but for some reason, both have different accelerators. The action to move the window is set to
alt+left-click works so it must be set somewhere.
Does anyone here know where this setting can be changed apart from the keyboard settings menu as it does not allow mouse clicks to be registered as shortcuts?
