    Hi. X Tile seems *awesome*. Thank you! It almost does what I want ;-). The problem is, whenever I try to tile the windows, it does that in the first monitor.

    I have a notebook attached to a big monitor and I want to tile the windows in the big one. But I can’t find a way to do it. I tried overriding the first monitor tiling area, but it didn’t work. Any hints?


    ahhh I got it. The screen to choose which windows to tile has two columns of checkboxes. Teach column is for a different monitor. That makes sense! Nice job, guys. Well, maybe you ccould make this a bit clearer in the documentation or in the UI itself, but anyway, it works.

    Do you have a paypal account so I can send you a small token of appreciation?



    I added a sentence in the x-tile homepage:

    “x-tile can tile on either one or two monitors: in case of two monitors detected two columns of checkboxes will be displayed and at windows selecting time you can choose on what monitor (= column) to tile”

    This should make it more clear, thank you.
    We didn’t create a paypal account yet, maybe we’ll do it in future, thank you!


    Nice program!
    The first thing what I was asking myself about when I started this program was: What are the checkboxes for? – really! *LOL*

    Now regarding the multiple monitor config:
    I have tested it with 3 Windows

    I’m encountering the following problem:
    The left-screen checkboxes arrange 3 windows side-by-side on the 1280×800 screen
    The right-screen checkboxes arrange 2 windows side-by-side on the 1280×800 and one window on the right-screen (1920×1200)

    But it should arrange the 3 windows on the right-screen
    With different tests it seems that the program ‘thinks’ that the screen has a 1920×1200 resolution ond begins on the left screen

    My configuration:
    Left Screen
    LVDS1 connected 1280×800+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 261mm x 163mm
    Right Screen
    VGA1 connected 1920×1200+1280+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 519mm x 324mm

    I’m using LXDE and xrandr for the screen config.

    What could cause this behavior?


    Hi Michael,
    at the moment I have not a second monitor to try to reproduce the problem, will try in the next days to set up the environment…
