Function of Sticky Edges Setting in Ubuntu 12.04 Displays


I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin). If I open System Settings >> Displays there is a new (?) on/off button for a setting named Sticky edges.

Can someone tell me what this setting is supposed to control?

Best Answer

It controls the mouse behaviour at the edges between monitors in a multi-monitor setup: If "Sticky Edges" is enabled the mouse stops on the edge.

See bug #965080 if you think this should be more obvious.
