I would like to snap windows in GNOME (more specifically, under Ubuntu) to user pre-defined grids.

I have tried the "Snapping Windows" and "Grid" plugins for Compiz, and have also seen demos of PyWO, but none of these tools seem to provide the above option.

Any suggestions?

Have you tried different window managers than metacity? Xmonad is an example and it is very customizable.

Thanks kmels, I'll give them a try, although I didn't see anything about window snapping in their site. – Amelio Vazquez-Reina Apr 13 '11 at 15:31
By the way, GNOME 3 seems to support "Window snapping" now. Check their demo videos. – kmels May 2 '11 at 2:40
