[ SOLVED ]

apt-get install xdotool


and add this to your .jwmrc:

Code:
 <Key mask="A" key="F1">exec: xdotool set_desktop_for_window  $(xdotool getactivewindow)  0 </Key>

 <Key mask="A" key="F2">exec: xdotool set_desktop_for_window  $(xdotool getactivewindow)  1 </Key>

 <Key mask="A" key="F3">exec: xdotool set_desktop_for_window  $(xdotool getactivewindow)  2 </Key>

 <Key mask="A" key="F4">exec: xdotool set_desktop_for_window  $(xdotool getactivewindow)  3 </Key>
