Chromium: can't move to other virtual desktop


Best Answer birdmun, 27 February 2017 - 02:33 AM

If you have the taskbar, you should be able to right click the tab? for chromium and get a similar list to what you would get by right clicking the application's title bar.

For some reason, I've lost the ability to move a Chromium window to a different virtual desktop.  If I right-click the title bar for something like synaptic, those options appear, but I don't see the same thing with Chromium, regardless of whether "Use system title bar and borders" is checked. Possibly related: the appearance or not of the system title bar and borders appears to be the opposite of that setting; the borders appear when it's unchecked.

 

Suggestions?  Thanks.

Hmm, with the title bar checked (and visible) the option is there and works as expected. Bodhi 4.1.0-64.

Obviously without the gtk border this option is not available.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

Well, I moved from Chrome to Chromium some while back when Chrome support for 32-bit Linux ended.  It's entirely possible that I've never been able to move Chromium and simply didn't realize it.

Still haven't gotten around to upgrading to 4.x, and I'll be sticking with 32-bit.  Laptop has a 64-bit processor but only 2GB of RAM, which just isn't enough for reasonable performance with a 64-bit OS.

Make sure you have Chrome / Chromium set to "use system borders" otherwise you won't see moksha's settings.

Thanks, that's helpful. The option to move to other desktops does appear on the taskbar button, even though nothing along those lines appears when right-clicking the title bar.

You were also asked about using system title bars and borders.

I can see the issue seems to be solved. Nevertheless consider the E/Moksha powerfull shortcuts. It is easy to bind a key with an item from Window actions list. I mean, send window to another desktop.

Well, talking about alternatives. If you have a visible pager you can drag the chrome icon from your current desktop to another desktop and the window will move to that desktop. More easy than clicking around.  ;)

 

Enjoy,

Charles.

Similar to Charles' tip: I go to a clear desktop. I pull the app's icon from the pager into the clear desktop and BAM One can also move an entire desktop with a mouseclick, and all its windows will reappear on that other desktop--an entire workspace, as a matter of fact, useful when editing a few images concurrently in GIMP
