  1. Excellent little program. Very clever. Thank you UbuntuGeek. Keep up the fantastic work.

  2. Seems to get confused when calculating window height. Panels at the top and bottom of screen seem to cause the tiled windows to overlap. Screenshots on request.

    Also, when tiling three windows across two screens in nVidia Twinview, the middle window gets forced to align with the left edge of the right screen, thus overlapping the right window.

    Great idea, though all the boundary conditions that different users will create may be difficult to debug.

    Thanks for this…

  3. – about the twin view we’ll work in future for a better dual monitor handling (actually i even don’t own a second monitor to try).
    – about the overlap, it can be caused also from many windows that have a minimum width/height that you can’t exceed, anyway if it’s very boring you can send us a screenshot and we can see if it’s possible to reproduce and fix.
    – we’ll issue a new version soon (maybe even today) with 4 more tiling options involving three windows, hope you’ll like it.
    Thanks for everybody’s feedback.

  4. dpkg-deb: `x-tile_1.4-1_all.deb’ is not a debian format archive
    dpkg: error processing x-tile_1.4-1_all.deb (–install):
    subprocess dpkg-deb –control returned error exit status 2
    Errors were encountered while processing:

    Any idea about the error?
