I'm working in multi display workspace, I would like to have keyboard shortcut for moving active window to another display (I don't mean workspaces). How can I achieve this in XFCE? In Unity I was using Compiz with predefined keyboard shortcuts.
XFCE does not have a built-in command that allows you to move a window to another monitor, however there is this Python script that can do that.
The script is used as:
movescreen.py <up|down|left|right|prev|next|fit> [win_id|mouse]
First, make sure the script's dependencies are satisfied:
sudo apt install python xrandr xwininfo wmctrl xdotool
Download the script and move it to the folder that you want, for example
~/scripts/(I am assuming this as the script's folder for the next steps, you may, however, use whatever you want).
Give executable rights to the script:
chmod u+x ~/scripts/movescreen.py
Open Keyboard and select the Application Shortcuts tab.
Click the Add button at the bottom left.
In the Command pop-up window enter the command to move the window, using the absolute path to the script. For example, to move the window to the monitor left, enter:
Press OK and assign the shortcut you want, for example Ctrl+Super+Left.
Repeat the steps for all other directions.
The script is not perfect, but works reasonably well. Also, being built in Python means that it is relatively easy to tweak it.
