Currently I have successfully used
wmctrl -r :SELECT: -t 2 but something like
wmctrl -r -i 0x03e00003 -t 2 does not work. How should I write the command in order to select the window to be moved by ID not by mouse?
I am using Linux Mint 13 with the default MATE DE .
I have also tried
wmctrl -i -r 0x03e00003 -t 2
wmctrl -i -r thewinIDInHexa -t 2 works now. The reason why it did not work is that while the first time i experimented with wmctrl i used the right ID but wrong syntax, the 2nd time i used the correct form but the wrong window ID... the thing is the ID was non-existent and wmctrl does not output any message for non-existent IDs. Thank you for your efforts. Having confirmation that i was in fact using the right form for the command pushed me to double check the IDs. Thank you again
EDIT2: since i am unable to comment i will post here the response to @slm : the correct ID now is 0x0380000f
wmctrl -v -i -r 0x0380000f -t 2 envir_utf8: 1 Using window: 0x0380000f
VLC is moved to workspace #2 (3rd workspace)
for the ID that is actually non-existent we have pretty much the same thing:
wmctrl -v -i -r 0x03a00003 -t 2 envir_utf8: 1 Using window: 0x03a00003
