Hard to grab edge for resize

Postby kenny1987 » Wed Jun 21, 2017 9:03 am

Hi everyone I tried to find similar problem on the forum but unfortunately didn't match anything :roll:

I am having real difficulties to grab window edge for resizing it's really frustrating especially when windows doesn't have any corner resizer
e.g Soap-ui or chromium. I am not using any theme does anybody know any settings which would increase edge size ?

The theme determines edge size and corner handle. Try different themes.

here's a theme that has 4 openbox theme variations.
all of them have a 3px border width; that is enough for me to resize the window comfortably on all 4 edges.
additionally, it is also possible to increase the size of the window handle (that's along the bottom edge).

resources:

Code: Select all

border.Width: ...
window.handle.width: ...

I have increased border.width from 1 to 3 in my current used theme

Code: Select all

sudo vim /usr/share/themes/Syscrash/openbox-3/themerc


Thanks for help

^ nice you figured it out (and with vim!), but a word of warning:
do not edit system files under /usr.
best case scenario, it will get overwritten after an update.
worst case scenario, your system becomes unusable.
instead, copy the theme to ~/.local/share/themes/syscrash-mine and edit there.
obtheme should find it there.
