I just updated to 9.04 from 8.10 and I am very disappointed that windows no longer "stick" or "snap" to each other, or the edges of my screen. Is there a simple option to turn this on, or will I have to use a more complicated tweak?

Well first make sure the option desktop effects are turned on.
Right click desktop and choose "Change Desktop Background"
Now choose the tab "Visual Effects" and make sure "Extra" is selected.

Yeah, I've got extra selected. It used to do it in 8.04 and 8.10 without extra selected too. (I left it on most of the time though, because I like the "jello" effects)

Hit ALT+F2 to bring up the run command box. Then type ccsm. This will bring up the advanced Compiz settings menus. The option for sticky windows along with other options will be there.

Ok. Thanks for the help. I'll try that once I reboot.
