I would say that this isn't a devilspie2 problem but a problem of the window manager that you are using - you can try holding the ALT-button on the keyboard and dragging with right mouse-button pressed over a window to resize. This works in Xfce, I don't know about GNOME.

Hello, and thank you for developping this nice program!

    I have started running it on a Debian 8 fresh install, with quite a simple
profile so far:

if (get_window_name()=="Terminal") then

    As I expected, this makes my gnome-terminal undecorated. Unfortunately, this
also makes it impossible to resize it with the mouse cursor, which I sometimes
want to do. I have tried with xterm and the same thing happens.

    Is this an expected behavior? What should I do to be able to manually resize
undecorated terminals?

    This is it. Thank you for your patience and good luck with devilspie2!
