htile is a bash script that makes possible to easily tile windows
in the GNOME desktop environment. The currently selected window is resized
and re-positioned to occupy either the top, bottom, left, right half;
or one of the four quarters of your screen.
Placing considers automatically your screen resolution as well as the size
of the GNOME panels you may have placed on the different sides of your desktop.
htile requires the
wmctrl utility. This tool is generally available as
package on the repositories of your distribution of choice. For instance
Debian GNU/Linux or Ubuntu users can install it by typing
apt-get install wmctrl
as superuser from their terminal.
usage: htile [-h] [-v] -m (up|down|left|right|up-left|down-left|up-right|down-right) -h : prints this help message -v : enable verbose mode -m : the movement command
htile is designed to be available in your path and to be called by keyboard
shortcut. This mimics utilities like SizeUp
available for Max OS X.
htile directory is in your
$PATH variable, you can go to
System -> Preferences -> Keyboard shortcuts in the GNOME menu and add
a shortcut for the different move commands.
Here are examples, based on SizeUp
htile -m left CTRL + ALT + left htile -m right CTRL + ALT + right htile -m up CTRL + ALT + up htile -m down CTRL + ALT + down htile -m up-left CTRL + SHIFT + ALT + left htile -m up-right CTRL + SHIFT + ALT + up htile -m down-left CTRL + SHIFT + ALT + down htile -m down-right CTRL + SHIFT + ALT + right
