roll up window on double click title bar

Hi all,

I want to be able to rollup a window by double clicking on the title bar.  Is this possible?  I like to have lots of windows open at once and this allows me bounce among them easily.  Clicking on the itty bitty up/down arrow is very difficult for me.

Thanks

Re: roll up window on double click title bar

The setting is located at Settings Manager >> Window Manager >> Advanced tab >> Double-click action

or:

xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/double_click_action -s shade

Re: roll up window on double click title bar

Thanks ToZ,

I tried both methods and neither work.  I tried each of the options in the Window Manager >> Advanced >> Double-click action and also tried the command line invocation and none of them do anything here.

I'm on f18 with xfce4 v4.10

Re: roll up window on double click title bar

What do the following commands return:

xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/double_click_action

...and are you using xfwm4 as the window manager?

ps -ef|grep xfwm4 | grep -v grep

What happens now when you double-click the window title bar? If nothing, try adjusting the mouse Double-click and Distance settings in Settings Manager >> Mouse and Trackpad >> Behavior tab.

OK,

shade
mike     12063     1  0 18:31 ?        00:00:04 xfwm4

Then did a double click as fast as I could and it worked so the problem is with the click timings.  That I think I can fix.

Thanks for your help

Re: roll up window on double click title bar

Just a reminder from a fellow Fedora user: F18 is no longer supported and there are no more updates, even for security issues.  Currently, only F19 and F20 are receiving support, so you should at least consider updating.
