Zoom on Launch

As part of QuinnStorm's mad code push she has hacked the minimize plugin so that when any new window is created it zooms in from where the mouse pointer was when it was clicked (using the same zoom effect as minimize). This looks really cool!
It has been through a number of revisions -
  • Rev1: No gconf key to turn it on/off
  • Rev2: has the Gconf key but had a glitch so it was inconsistent
  • Rev3: This has the Gconf key and also solves the bug stopping it from working on all windows. QuinnStorm has suggested that if the fact that the 'switcher' dialogue behaving like this is annoying then he may be able to make it a special case - if you have a suggestion, head to the latest-compiz thread in the Ubuntu Forums folks :P
Some Gnome users experienced initial problems with getting it to work, chanders eventually solved it here (see the edit)
Ok I think the problem was the list of window types in gconf. For some reason I had a 'Toolbar' in there and no ModalDialog... When this was changed it all works perfectly!!

REV3 works! make sure window_types is [Utility,Dialog,Normal,ModalDialog] is so.
