the thin 1px window border makes really hard to resize windows

Bug Description

Binary package hint: light-themes


It seems that there is only one pixel border around any windows in maverick that can be catched to resize windows. (If the window has no statusbar with a resize handle)

Please increse the bottom border to minimum 3 pixels so users can catch the bottom right (and left too) corner more easily, where usually windows resized...

This 'bug' should not be marked a dupe of 160311. It would be nice if metacity and compiz somehow invented a completely new, intuitive method to resize windows that any user somewhat familiar with common gui's used the past 10 years or so could immediately grasp without having to google.. In the real world however, that job is done by window borders. Releasing a default theme for what should be the friendliest desktop linux system that turns window resizing into an exercise in mouse dexterity is truly mind boggling.
