I have a display and the right-most edge of my monitor is busted! So to make it work, I'm trying to somehow restrict my desktop to the pixels that actually work.

This would mean:

  • The pointer shouldn't enter the black region ever
  • Windows if maximized should take up only the pixels that work.

I use Ubuntu 13.10! Any terms that I can research would be great!

The solution for Windows has been covered in the questions @techie007 linked to. Editing your question so it applies to Linux only should prevent it from getting closed. Speaking of Linux: Which distro and desktop environment are you using? –  Dennis Feb 20 '14 at 17:52
Thanks @techie007, I've edited the question to be linux-only now. –  Utkarsh Sinha Feb 20 '14 at 17:56
Using ObjectDock on windows certainly fixed the problem. Need to figure out linux now. –  Utkarsh Sinha Feb 22 '14 at 5:02
