Great! I've been waiting for someone to improve window management for people that use multiple monitors.

I'm not sure if you've ever used Ultramon on Windows. But it has three features that make window management very easy.

  • Click and drag the titlebar of a maximized window in the direction of the screen you want to move the window to, release the mouse button to make it snap in place on that screen. Currently in KDE, you have to spend a few seconds on properly aligning the window on the screen you moved it to.

  • An option that says "move to screen #" in the right-click context menu in the title of a program (or in the taskbar), much like the option for virtual desktops, only now for different screens.

  • A button in the titlebar that will move the window to a different screen.

  • I would love to have an easy way to tint one screen, consider this scenario;

    You're watching a movie in fullscreen on one monitor and on the other is your IRC client on which you're sortof following a discussion on one of your favorite topics. However, because the screen isn't tinted, you can't see the movie all too well, because of the brightness it gives off something that could be prevented by tinting one of the screens.

    Currently I do this on Windows by adjusting the gamma on one monitor all the way down. Not a perfect solution, but at least it somewhat works.

For reference, here's the Ultramon tour page describing the window management features:

Oh, and seconding the request for Kubuntu packages! ;)

"Click and drag the titlebar of a maximized window in the direction of the screen you want to move the window to, release the mouse button to make it snap in place on that screen. Currently in KDE, you have to spend a few seconds on properly aligning the window on the screen you moved it to."

+1. That's the feature I miss most at the moment.
I think this should be enabled even if you have unchecked "Allow moving and resizing of maximized windows".

I haven't tried the patch, but I wonder if it's possible to specify which screen an applications should appear on in "Window-Specific Settings"? I know it's possible with "Position", but still not perfect.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
