Bug Description

It's very hard to resize windows in default Ubuntu installation.
Area of the windows where cursor can be used for resize windows is very small (in compare with KDE and Windows, for example).

At first I thought that it seemed to me, but other people also confirm this problem.

i disagree with you
the only small areas to resize are the areas with the buttons
only the 2 top corners are the hard once but resize able

as long as you put you pointer on the borders you can resize

Maybe, but try to compare with KDE or Windows - you'll be surprised.

That is the hardest part.

Also put cursor on the corner of GTK-applications in KDE much easier than native Qt-applications.

if you are not comfortable with it you can change it to satisfy your needs
that is why i have Linux OS
you can central everything you want
you only need to do so very good searching
and you will pull it off

but i like it the way it is
people aren't the same

I do not care about my comfortable in this case, I (and not only I) just see important usability problem in Ubuntu and report it.
