Initial placement of windows

Asked by m4rce1 on 2012-05-02

Hello guys,

I successfully installed precise pangolin on my machine. Afterwards I installed Unity 2D and removed Unity (3D). Almost everything works fine but unfortunately all windows are opening in the (default) upper left corner of my screen. I want them to be opened at the center of my screen.

Because I am new to Unity at all I tried to configure this "Window placement" behavior with "CompizConfig Settings Manager" > "Window Management" > "Place Windows" by setting "Placement Mode" to "center". This does not work for me.

Afterwards I recognized that Unity 2D has nothing to do compiz but with metacity.

So, how to define the window placement behavior for Unity 2D / Metacity?

Thank you very much!

Marcel
