Description pf 2014-07-21 12:43:54 UTC
see bug 337631 which provided a workaround. However, that solution is done at the cost of wasted screen real estate. What I was really looking for is a user-definable "grab" zone. Ideally, I'd prefer a one pixel border with a N-pixel grab zone. IOW, separate the grab width from the display width. Not even looking for visual feedback such as gimp's fine tuning on its Select borders; just an adjustable grab zone to avoid the current difficulty without displaying a wider border. Hope this is clearer... :)

I do not really understand this feature request. Could you please elaborate in more detail what you want. Please keep in mind that people might not know GIMP.

He wants the return of the KDecorationDefines::ExtendedBorderRegion to be configurable -> oxygen?

(In reply to Thomas Lübking from comment #2) > He wants the return of the KDecorationDefines::ExtendedBorderRegion to be > configurable -> oxygen? I'm not sure whether the request is for inside or outside of window. In a KDecoration2 world the extended border region could also be configurable from KWin side, but I'd prefer keeping it decoration related (still need to implement it).

inside -> "won't fix". we can't just cover client contents. KDecorationDefines::ExtendedBorderRegion could be defaulted to a configurable value in the core, but allowing for config as well as decos ignore/override that would be silly. -> The value would have to be passed down to the deco for invocation (since ultimately the deco should control this related to visible borders and border masks) @pf press and hold "Alt", you then can resize the window using the right mousebutton.

Thomas!!!! :) :) Alt+RM is even better! After all these years of using KDE and I never found this... SO MUCH easier than trying to "aim" the mouse!! Is there a cheat sheet for such features somewhere? THANKS!!!

Just switched to "no border" and I'm happy!! :)

run "kcmshell4 kwinoptions", this will directly open a config page from systemsettings. In the "Window Actions" (3rd) tab, you can configure what to do for which mouse button and whether to use the Alt or Meta ("Windows", SUPER_L) key. Maybe look around a bit in that dialog ;-)
