Back to Monitor
A Cinnamon extension to move windows back to their original location when (re-)connecting a monitor.
- Remember window locations based on monitor connection (can be switched on/off)
- Minimize windows when a monitor is disconnected (can be switched on/off)
The goal of this extension is only to operate on windows that are moved automatically when a monitor is disconnected.\ It is therefore not possible (and will never be) to create/save/restore layouts on demand.
Not available yet.
To download the source and install it, execute the following as a normal user:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:nathan818fr/cinnamon-back-to-monitor.git cd cinnamon-back-to-monitor cinnamon-install-spice extension files/back-to-monitor@nathan818fr
If you find any bug, you can report on the Github issues page.
Contributions are welcome. Please submit pull requests to the extension repository (not the Spices repository, which is only a distribution channel).\ It is recommended to open an issue before introducing new features to discuss them.
• Tiled/snapped windows are not restored correctly
The required APIs are not exposed to cinnamon extensions.\ Therefore, tiled/snapped windows can only be restored to the predefined dimensions.
• Fullscreen windows are not restored
The required APIs are not exposed to cinnamon extensions.\ Therefore, fullscreen windows are ignored by this extension.
• The "Always on Visible Workspace" option is not restored
The required APIs are not exposed to cinnamon extensions.\ Therefore, windows that had this option enabled will not keep it. Instead, they will be moved to the last workspace where they were present.
