Dual Monitors... Moving applications from one monitor to another
 
This is a general question related to using dual monitors through KDE.
I would like to poll the community on how people transfer applications from
one monitor to another without using the mouse. Are there key any specific
key bindings that I might not be aware of?

Thanks in advance.

I assume you are talking about two monitors using "spanning"---ie acting as one super-large desktop. In these setups, the methods for moving a window are the same as with one monitor.

Now--is there a way to map different desktops to the different monitors?? In this case, you would have the KDE right-click option to move an open window to a different desktop.

It depends on the WM, I don't remember if kwin has such a functionality, but, if it has and it's not bind-able to a key stroke, you can always use shift+f10 (or whatever is used nowasays to display the window menu) and then navigate the menu with the arrow keys. Maybe it's possible to do so from that menu.

The only WM that I know that can do this (and can also do what zdannar asked) is xmonad. It's a tiling keyboard driven WM. On a second thought, I remember hearing that e17 can do that as well, though I never tried it personally and can't confirm it.

Thanks for the input. This question stems from a co-worker who uses windows for his destop having hotkeys set up to push and application window from one monitor to another. I use slackware with KDE and am hoping there is a way to perform a simular action.
