Ubuntu – Is it possible to place windows with keyboard shortcuts in Gnome-Shell


With Compiz in Unity, I could press Ctrl+Alt+6 to place a window on the right-half of the screen, Ctrl+Alt+4 to place it on the left half, Ctrl+Alt+7 to place it in the top left quarter of the screen, and so on. Is there something similar in Gnome-Shell?

Best Answer

Install gconf-editor.

sudo apt-get install gconf-editor

Now, run gconf-editor ( Alt+F2 gconf-editor)

Go to apps/metacity/window_keybindings and edit the move_to_center / move_to_corner entries to your liking. (see screenshot:)
