Promoting KDE: KWin tiling in KDE SC 4.5
In a previous post I had given a hint for KWin Tiling.
I’m now using KDE 4.5 beta2, which is *quite* stable -with a few known bugs though- and … beautiful (check out the new Air Plasma theme along with the new Blur effect).
Tiling Windows is a very effective way to have your windows aligned especially if your needs (programming) or desktop (netbooks) require multiple windows displayed together in a limited space.
Let’s see now how can KWin Tiling be enabled with a set of screenshots.
(The system theme, icons and fonts are custom and not the default ones).
Note: This applies only to KDE 4.5 and later versions.
1. Open System Settings
2. Navigate to Window Behavior
3. Go to the Window Behavior submenu and then press the “Advanced” tab
4. Press the “Enable Tiling” checkbox and then configure the Tiling Settings according to what you like and press Apply
PS.: I will also update the Arch Wiki KDE page for those that would like those instructions there.
