Shawn Powers of Linux Journal recently posted a video about using the Alt-key to move large windows around on netbooks (here’s a link to the video). Shawn also mentions that it doesn’t work by default with Compiz. Essentially, Compiz doesn’t allow you to move a window above the top panel. To fix this, simply use the command below.

gconftool-2 --set /apps/compiz/plugins/move/allscreens/options/constrain_y --type bool 0
