Different % for window size when tiling windows

Hi,

settings->window manager->keyboard
has the option of defining shortcuts for tiling window to the left/right/up/down. They then occupy 50% of the screen width/height.

Is it possible to define different %, e.g. a window would be tiled to the top but its height will be 20% of the screen height?.

Thanks

Re: Different % for window size when tiling windows

i don't understand what tiling a window means.  can you show an example?

my understanding of shortcuts is a keypress combo (one key with a combination of modifiers) runs a whole command.  so i'm guessing the command has to have the percentage given as an argument or have a set value hardcoded inside.  how does settings->window manager->keyboard show it for you?  (that command part)

in settings->window manager->keyboard there are keyboard shortcuts for tiling a window to the left/right/up/down.

I don't believe you can adjust those natively through xfwm4. You'd need to use a 3rd party tool like one of the ones listed in this thread. Or alternatively, replace xfwm4 with a tiling window manager.

Thanks.

Doesn't xfwm4 use some config file where it's possible to set the % of window width/height when tiling it this way?.

A config file? No. The dimensions are hard-coded (half height, half width). See https://gitlab.xfce.org/xfce/xfwm4/-/bl … nt.c#L3304.
