Moviendo ventanas entre monitores en Xfce4

Publicado: 05/01/2014 en Ubuntu

instalar xdotool wmctrl

crear archivo move-to-next-monitor, despues hacerlo ejecutable y ponerlo en hotkeys:
# Move the current window to the next monitor.
# Only works on a horizontal monitor setup.
# Also works only on one X screen (which is the most common case).
# Props to
# Unfortunately, both “xdotool getwindowgeometry –shell $window_id” and
# checking “-geometry” of “xwininfo -id $window_id” are not sufficient, as
# the first command does not respect panel/decoration offsets and the second
# will sometimes give a “-0-0” geometry. This is why we resort to “xwininfo”.

screen_width=`xdpyinfo | awk ‘/dimensions:/ { print $2; exit }’ | cut -d”x” -f1`
display_width=`xdotool getdisplaygeometry | cut -d” ” -f1`
window_id=`xdotool getactivewindow`

# Remember if it was maximized.
window_state=`xprop -id $window_id _NET_WM_STATE | awk ‘{ print $3 }’`

# Un-maximize current window so that we can move it
wmctrl -ir $window_id -b remove,maximized_vert,maximized_horz

# Read window position
x=`xwininfo -id $window_id | awk ‘/Absolute upper-left X:/ { print $4 }’`
y=`xwininfo -id $window_id | awk ‘/Absolute upper-left Y:/ { print $4 }’`

# Subtract any offsets caused by panels or window decorations
x_offset=`xwininfo -id $window_id | awk ‘/Relative upper-left X:/ { print $4 }’`
y_offset=`xwininfo -id $window_id | awk ‘/Relative upper-left Y:/ { print $4 }’`
x=`expr $x – $x_offset`
y=`expr $y – $y_offset`

# Compute new X position
new_x=`expr $x + $display_width`

# If we would move off the right-most monitor, we set it to the left one.
# We also respect the window’s width here: moving a window off more than half its width won’t happen.
width=`xdotool getwindowgeometry $window_id | awk ‘/Geometry:/ { print $2 }’|cut -d”x” -f1`
if [ `expr $new_x + $width / 2` -gt $screen_width ]; then
new_x=`expr $new_x – $screen_width`

# Don’t move off the left side.
if [ $new_x -lt 0 ]; then

# Move the window
xdotool windowmove $window_id $new_x $y

# Maximize window again, if it was before
if [ -n “${window_state}” ]; then
wmctrl -ir $window_id -b add,maximized_vert,maximized_horz
