    Re: Window moving in IceWM

    OK. To get the alt+control mouse drag to work, you have to have the number lock off. I don't know why. I did not think about it until just now, as I use a few Motif apps and motif typically isn't happy with number lock, so I have it off by default.

    Also, you can edit your ~/.icewm/preferences file and change the line:

    # KeyWinMove="Alt+F7"

    to a different combination, as alt+F7 is a reach

    Be sure and uncomment the line after you change it. If you're like me and don't use the system menu button on the window frame, you can switch the

    # KeyWinMenu="Alt+Space"

    for the KeyWinMove sequence, as alt+space is much easier than alt+F7.

    Hope this helps.

    Hmmmm....

    That's a neat feature, I never thought about doing that in Fvwm before.

    Turns out Fvwm can do this very easily... for the Fvwm users among us, here ya go:

    Code:
    Mouse 1 W M Move

    I think it is safe to say that there is nothing that you can not do in fvwm if you have the patience and time to figure it out.

    I never have num lock on either, but I really want to get Alt+LeftMouseDrag working as I'm used to it and all other Linux WMs support it. I want to have at least Ctrl+Alt+LeftMouseDrag working if I can't get the other one...

    Ctrl+Alt+LeftMouseDrag still doesn't work, cga. Argh. I wonder why it's not working for me, it makes no sense.

    Thanks.

    Ah ha! I got it

    I put this line and now I can get Ctrl+Alt+LeftMouseDrag
    Code:
    # Allow mouse actions on client windows (buggy with some programs)
    ClientWindowMouseActions=1 # 0 / 1
    but still ugh.

    Ummm, A IceWM PET, thanks cga you rock d00d.

    I'll second your ugh and raise you a yech. I like my numlock on personally. But then I've never even looked into the shortcut keys for IceWM. I've only been using it for a couple of weeks, and just haven't had a chance. Alt left click would be nice, time to experiment tomorrow maybe, it's past my bedtime again

    I thought that was set on by default! Ops, well, it was in mine. :-[

    I think that what you are trying to is something that the developers may not have really thought too much about. IceWM was design with the goal of making the mouse completely optional, so most of the keyboard commands are designed to work without a mouse all together. So, you press Alt + F7 and then use the arrow keys to move the window. Or, press Alt + F8 and use the arrow keys to resize the window.

    Personally, I run most apps maximized and swicth between them with the taskbar.

    Gee, thanks. I hope it lives up to your expectations.

    Yes, the alt+drag would be nice, but I don't think it likely (see above explaination).

    I do have the same problem, I mean, Ctrl + Alt + Left Mouse is no good for me. So, you're not alone :-). Anyway, this thread is going to be useful to me...
