 Post subject: Moving non decorated window using code.

I have a GTKWindow that I have created and then afterwards attempted to move using gtk_window_move(), I have the window set so that if I click on it it toggles the window's decorations, the default being none. For production I wish to have the window have no decorations, but If I configure the window in that manner I it won't move. It is an odd occurance considering alt-dragging still functions.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to move the window? Should I attempt with libwnck (unstable I read)?

Thanks for any advice.

Im not sure how to do this with gdk but you could just use xlib

Here is a tutorial on having a window move itself around the screen etc. ... w_ops_move

I don't think libwnck is going to help you out much from what i know of it its only purpose is for building tasklists and desktop pagers.

Another way to possibly move a window around that has no decoration is to just
alt + spacebar
or ctrl + spacebar but this will only work if your window manager supports it.

So this is what i would do.

When you click on the window that has no frame add in some xlib code to get the window "id"
Then assign a xlib mouse move event to have the window follow your mouse cursor.
