Switch Application to Second Monitor

Postby uniprog on Sun Feb 24, 2013 6:48 pm

Hi all,
In the process from transitioning from Windows -> Linux. Tried Fedora which I found good for a while but a kernel bug after an update wiped out both my desktop and laptop in one swoop, with a deadline coming up so I'm hoping Mint will be more stable!
Really liking it so far. My question is can I create a keyboard shortcut that when pressed will shift my current application over to my second monitor.
For example If I have Chrome open on monitor2 I press "F2" and Chrome moves over (still in full-screen) to Monitor1. Any ideas?? I did look through the keyboard shortcuts but couldn't quite seem to find what I was looking for. It could be that I just don't undertand all of the linux terminology though. In Windows I was using a 3rd party application Ultramon.

Thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Bump - Any ideas anyone :)

Also does anyone know how to have a tool bar that stretches across the bottom of both screen. Ideal behaviour would be that anything I minimise one one monitor will go to corresponding taskbar.

Thanks again all for your help. Really getting on well with Linux Mint so far!

I figured out how to do this and it should work in all versions of Linux Mint. I am currently writing a tutorial for this ... will update here when done.
