I’m having a hard time resizing windows. For some reason, the mouse is too sensitive and doesn’t grab the window’s edge. Usually, it takes me between 3 to 5 times to finally get the edge to resize the window
I have no problem with either gnome or kde. I have tried different themes in xfce…
Is there some setting to control the mouse, to make it less sensitive?
OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64
Host: 81X2 IdeaPad Flex 5 14ARE05
Uptime: 10 mins
Packages: 1244 (pacman)
Shell: bash 5.1.8
DE: Xfce 4.16
WM Theme: X-Arc-Darker
Theme: X-Arc-Darker [GTK2/3]
Icons: Moka [GTK2/3]
Terminal Font: Fantasque Sans Mono 15
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 4700U with Radeon Graphics (8)
GPU: AMD ATI 04:00.0 Renoir
Memory: 1092MiB / 15369MiB
You can try Start-Settings-Mouse and Touchpad
The only setting that seems to improve the situation a little bit is:
devices > button feedback > acceleration
The other settings of behaviour or theme do not seem to make any difference.
The problem with reducing the acceleration, is that the mouse becomes very sluggish.
This is a popular question at
forum.xfce.org. Along with @jrichard326 response and changing window theme, other options might be:
alt + f8 and then drag the mouse. Click to release.
alt + right-click + drag. It changes direction (width, height) based on where you start the drag in the window.
gtk.css css to increase border and/or gripper (may be affected by CSD (client side decoration)).
After doing some more googling (actually
https://startpage.com). I found:
The Alt-right click drag did not work for me until: Windows Manager Tweaks > Accessibility > Key used to grab + move windows = Alt
Now it does
Thank you very much for taking the time to help.
