Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz-fusion-plugins-extra

Compiz's Maximumize plugin can't maximumize windows. I press the key binding and nothing happens. Minimumizing works, though. Tested on Jaunty and Karmic build 20091027.

I can support that on Jaunty. None of the key bindings in the "Maximumize" group seem to work. Package: compiz-fusion-plugins-extra 0.8.2-0ubuntu1

Changed in compiz-fusion-plugins-extra (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

Had the same issue (even though I'm running OpenSuse now), try enabling the option "Ignore already overlapping windows in the calculations".

Thanks gnl, enabling "Ignore already overlapping windows in the calculations" solves this. I think this ption should be set as default.

Now we need to check if Maverick is affected by this bug.

Maverick affected : Maximumize doesn't work whereas Minimumize works fine.
I also noticed that even if I change the Minimumize bindings, the old bindings are the only which work. I'm not sure, but it might be related to the Maximumize bug.

Natty has the same bug where no key binding makes Maximumize work, but Minimumize works fine.

The problem still exists in Precise, and it makes the plugin completely useless. Which is unfortunate because it would be a really good addition to the grab plugin.

Ticking "Ignore already overlapping windows in the calculations" doen't work btw.
