After trying many tiling window managers, I came to the conclusion that they are not really what I was looking for. I needed something less intrusive that would provide the same kind of power but would not break my current workflows.

So, I decided to roll out my own window tiling/resizing solution.

Note:- This is still very experimental and minimal.

Install Azulejo on ubuntu

Download deb package from here once you have deb package you can install by double clicking on it

If you're wondering what this does, maybe the current keymap may help:

Super+2		Place two windows side by side
Super+3		Place a window on the left half of the screen and two on the right half
Super+4		Arrange four windows two by two
Super+R		Rotate windows' positions i.e. cycle windows
Super+H		Resize and move current window to the left
Super+K		Resize and move current window to the right
Super+Y		Resize and move current window to left upper corner
Super+U		Resize and move current window to right upper corner
Super+B		Resize and move current window to left lower corner
Super+N		Resize and move current window to right lower corner

    Tilling is what you do to the garden. I think you mean tiling, as in tiles.

    There is a compiz plugin called grid. I think its in compiz-fusion-plugins-extra (either extra or main). When enabled it does this kind of thing really really well.

    CTRL + places windows in the relevant place as located on the number pad. If you repeat the shortcut key, then the window size changes through 1/3, 1/2, 2/3 screen width.

    While it only affects the currently selected window, it makes organising everything on the desktop really easy/awesome :D

    I installed this Azulejo and it didn’t work. The same day, my laptop video card was corrupted and bricked my computer. This was a month ago. I now write from my new computer.

    PROCEED WITH CAUTION
