Re: Drag windows across workspaces

Try adding this to your sawfish RC file (~/.sawfish/rc for me):

(require 'sawfish.wm.ext.edge-flip)
(define-special-variable edge-flip-enabled t
"Select the next desktop when the pointer hits screen edge.")
(define-special-variable edge-flip-type 'workspace
"Control what hitting the screen edge selects, workspace or viewport.")
(define-special-variable edge-flip-only-when-moving nil
"Only flip when interactively moving a window.")
(define-special-variable edge-flip-delay 300
                            "Milliseconds to delay before edge flipping.")

Let us know if that's all it takes...

   In times long past, I had a sawfish installation that came with
Gnome, back when Gnome did such things, which had an option under
sawfish-ui to allow dragging of windows off of an edge of a workspace
and onto another workspace.  I've grown quite accustomed to this
behavior.  Unfortunately, this install of sawfish broke, and I was
forced to reinstall from source.  After compiling from CVS (retrieved

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous anoncvs gnome org:/cvs/gnome co sawfish

) , I find this option no longer exists in sawfish-ui.  Has this
option been nixed?  Hidden?  Does it require some underlying support
from Gnome (?!) that has since vanished?  Have I gotten the wrong CVS?
   Much thanks for any assistance that might be rendered.
