Hi there,

I am a recent Ubuntu convert. One of the things I miss from my Windows days is the hability to define new keyboard shortcuts and use them to manipulate open windows (essentially moving the focused window to specific regions of the screen). On Windows I used the excellent AutoHotKey software to do this. How would I go about doing that sort of thing in gnome? I am a developer and
would be happy to hack my own solution if needed.

Any pointers to the relevant gnome API's or alternatively existing software
would be greatly appreciated.

Have you had a look at Devil's Pie?  Might do what you want.
