Can you resize with ALT+Right Mouse Button Drag?

Thanks! That works.


The windows where this happens do not seem to have standard window
decorations. They do have min/max/close buttons, but that's it. I
believe this has something to do with "client-side decorations."

Does maximizing work?

Yes.


How do I fix this?

There might be a way to tell the application to not ask for client side
decorations or for KWin to overrule it.

I found this:

Have yet to try it.

In any event, the client side decorations on their own would be fine with me, if I could still resize the windows. How is this supposed to work anyway? Does Gnome do something special to allow resizing?
