I have just, in a weekend expedition, migrated from using Windows 2000 to Slamd64 10.2 as my primary development desktop. I have to admit, I'm having fun doing it.
My current problem is that I can't seem to configure keyboard shortcuts for my virtual desktop manager. I had a program for Windows 2000 ("VirtuaWin") which acted as a quasi-virtual-desktop program by hiding and showing frames. It was sloppy work, but it ran in userspace and did the job. And, compared to being stuck on one desktop with my usual 50 or so windows, all was much nicer.
Now I'm in KDE and I'm having trouble using the virtual desktops. Specifically, I can't seem to find where to configure the interface. I'm used to the following functionality, all of which was heavily configurable in VirtuaWin:
* Holding Control while dragging a window against the edge of the screen moved it to the next or previous desktop. (I had my virtual desktops set up in a 1 tall by 4 wide fashion, so my windows were moved my touching the left and right of the screen.)
* Pressing Control+Shift+NumpadPlus or Control+Shift+NumpadMinus cycled to the next or previous desktop, respectively.
* Pressing Control+Shift+F9 through Control+Shift+F12 jumped me to desktop 1 through desktop 4, respectively.
I will appreciate any help whatsoever in attaining this functionality under KDE. I'm thrilled by this transition (and my machine is definitely happier about it) and I'm pretty sure my desktop is Linux to stay, but it'd be a shame if I had to take my hands off the keyboard and find the mouse every time I want to switch desktops. That takes time and concentration that I'd prefer not to spend whilst coding.
Thanks for reading and for any assistance. Cheers!
