The following is a set of functions which I use to help navigate my 5x1 desktop layout. I don’t like to use the mouse unless required, and I have keybindings to move me left and right across my desktop. I have encountered a problem, which was primarily solved by Thomas (thank you!), wherein the mouse pointer is not over a window after moving virtual terminals. With my focus setup requiring the mouse to be in a window before the focus changes, I can be forced to manually place the mouse onto the one a window, which seems a wasted effort.
FVWM to the rescue, voila!
- I GotoPage $*
- I PointerWindow (HasPointer) Break
- I Next (CurrentPage, AcceptsFocus, !Focused, CirculateHit) FlipFocus
- I GotoPageAndFocus wrapx -1p +0p
- I GotoPageAndFocus wrapx +1p +0p
This could easily be extended to include vertical viewports if you run a different layout… Once again, thank you Thomas Adam!
