X-tile is a gnome applet for your panel (or optionally a standalone application) that allows you to select a number of windows and tile them in different ways.This is especially useful for comparing products in separate web pages,or for programmers refering to documentation as they are programming.
Install x-tile in ubuntu

First you need to download .deb package from here or using the following command

wget http://open.vitaminap.it/software/x-tile_1.3.1-1_all.deb

Now install this .deb package by double clicking or from the terminal run the following command

sudo dpkg -i x-tile_1.3.1-1_all.deb

Add to the gnome panel

right click upon a panel and select "add to panel...", then select "x tile"

from the list and click "add"

    This package has a dependency named python-psutil
    so if dpkg complains install it using sudo apt-get python-psutil !!

    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…

    - 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.

    The package has been updated and the old version removed.

    Run:

    wget http://open.vitaminap.it/software/x-tile_1.4-1_all.deb

    to get the .deb

    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:
    x-tile_1.4-1_all.deb

    Any idea about the error?

    The webpage for x-tile changed to http://giuspen.com/x-tile

    Actually there are two packages: x-tile and x-tile-ng where the second one is not a gnome applet and has no gnome dependencies.

    Nice concept. Needs to support multi-monitor desktops.
