Ubuntu – Just upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 and can’t use compiz grid window resize commands


I got used to splitting my application windows on monitor into 4 sides top-left, top-right, bottom-left, bottom-right with key combinations like Ctrl+Alt+Key3 and so on.
It no longer works with Ubuntu 18.04. Is there any alternative for that with Ubuntu 18.04?

Best Answer

Ubuntu 18.04 dropped support for the Unity desktop compositor in favour of GNOME Shell. GNOME Shell is incompatible with Compiz. You need to look for a method to replicate this behaviour using GNOME Shell and its extensions or install and use an unofficial, community-supported version of Unity.

P.S.: There's a follow-up question with a suggestion for a replacement GNOME Shell extension.
