Alright, I read the forum rules and help me out with this- I have like 5 questions, and for some of them I can’t figure out if they’re questions, feedback, or bug reports, (and yea, I tried searching for them (one I think is definitely a bug so it’s probably been reported),
So- should I post them in seperate threads or all at once? Well, here’s a bunch, lemme know if I should split them up or not:
Most of my questions are centered around thumbnails and window management. For thumbnails- I figured out that I needed to switch to compiz. It’s really flawed though; unless I’m doing this wrong:
The doc is only showing one active window thumbnail per application.
The taskbar only shows thumbnails on mouse-over some of the time (and I still can’t figure out what the reasons is- when it will or when it stops).
Arrow keys don’t work on the alt-tab list, I have to do shift-tab to go backwards, but arrow keys don’t do it as in other WM’s (and windows)
Is there a way to cycle through windows with the mouse wheel?
Is there a way to roll up the taskbar icons into groups by application (as in cough vista?) Well- or in win 10 and Unity where you just mouse over and it shows you thumbs of all the open windows? Because my task bar is immediately crammed full of useless “…” tabs.
And does it have anything like in macos or win10 or unity where you get a screen full of thumbnails of all open windows?
Oh also- I think this one’s a bug- in MATE Tweak I turned unchecked “window snapping” and windows are still snapping. I should to to launchpad for that, right. I’ll try to find it first I bet it’s been reported a lot already.
I feel like I must be clueless here because it’s really difficult to navigate but it’s such a popular WM,
