Hey, is there any way to call gTile from CLI / Bash / zsh? I'd like to use it to create hotkeys for positions. Something like "gTile 4x4 1 2" which would describe the 4x4 tiles and first column second row e.g. Thank you for the extension :)

Hi, where is the README.md located for this when installing it using Extensions menu in Linux Mint system settings? Thanks.

Doesn't seem to work on Mint 18.3. The super key + space doesn't activate the panel.

Have you enabled the extension? This got me the first time, I thought downloading was enough. Click the + to enable.

Can it run on Fedora 27 Cinnamon (Cinnamon v3.6.6)?

This is exactly what I need. I would love to have settings for window margins as well.

I'm running Mint 18.2 Cinnamon, fully updated. This extension looks really useful. Unfortunately, when I try to install it, via the settings application, it reports: - "Extension gTile@shuairan is not compatible with current version of cinnamon. Using it may break your system. "

Also running 18.2 and got the same error; it's really a general disclaimer because the dev can't account for future changes in Cinnamon. You can click "yes" to load extension anyway - it seems to more or less or less work. When using the Auto-Tile function the window positioning has a negative vertical offset, so the tops of windows won't use the very top of the screen, and the bottom of windows will be cut off by the bottom panel. This issue may be specific to my system (i.e. might conflict with another extension). Manual tiling doesn't have this issue. So it works for me and hasn't broken my system.
