Hotkey to move active window 1 right and 1 left


#1

It’s frustrating to move window to workspace *.
The Window mover applet requieres a gui to be involved.

I would love a way to move current window 1 workspace right or 1 workspace left with 2 different hotkeys.


#2

It’s a good request - I might even have a go implementing it myself (famous last words!)

In GNOME Control Center there are two workspace options “Move to Workspace above” and “Move to Workspace below” - the shortcut keys there don’t seem to work. Maybe it could be coded by a change to budgie-desktop to move left/right instead.

Please raise an issue on the upstream tracker https://github.com/solus-project/budgie-desktop

Issue on github.

@RasmusKallas not sure what you mean by Window mover applet requieres a gui to be involved, but are you aware it can be run simply by Ctrl + W + number of the targeted workspace?


#5

@vlijm I would find the hotkeys easier, also Window Mover Applet is also broken on my end so I’m not aware of it.


#6

@RasmusKallas broken? Could you run /usr/lib/budgie-desktop/plugins/budgie-wmover/wmover_run -single from a terminal and post the output?


#7

No output. Even with using some hotkeys.


#8

How is it broken then? It does not appear?


#9

Yes it does not. You can only get an idication that it’s active by noticing, that the current window is now inactive.


#10

If you disconnect the second monitor and logout and login does window mover appear?
