Today I scratched an itch I had with #Gnome and #vscode. Every time I run it on my #Linux PC I have to drag around the window until it fills my 3 displays setup. It’s tricky because it’s a grown installation and the displays have different resolutions.
Gnome has smart borders auto-sizing windows when you come close to a border. Usually that’s awesome but in this case it’s not.
wmctrl to my rescue!
Find out about current window position when satisfied:
wmctrl -G -l -x
Use that information for a one liner script:
wmctrl -x -r code.Code -e 0,0,109,5276,1136
This will do until I get a 4k display or learn how to auto-run this snippet on the launch of vscode (like I do this with RisingWorld to force semi borderless fullscreen) 🤣
