[Solved] Can't move Vivaldi to another Workspace.



  • I'm in Manjaro Linux inside the xfce DE, but it really could be a multitude of desktop environments that support multiple workspaces. I have six workspaces on my computer. Mate, Cinnamon, Englightenment and Xfce all support multiple desktop workspaces.

    Normally, when my workspace gets crowded, I can right click on the top of the window that a program is in and select to move the window to a different workspace. This makes it less cluttered and then I can just flip over to the other workspace and focus on that window I just moved there.

    This is not currently possible to do, at least with this same method, using Vivaldi. I can't figure out how to move an open tab or separate instance of Vivaldi running in one desktop workspace to another. I can do it with Chrome, Chromium, Firefox, Midori, or any other program, but not with Vivaldi.

    The only way I can get an instance of Vivaldi onto another workspace is to switch to that workspace and open a new instance of the browser. I can't just move one instance of an already opened browser and web page to another workspace.

    This creates problems for me.

    This drawback makes using Vivaldi cumbersome and I find myself switching back to something like Firefox or another browser, which work just fine with my multiple workspace environment.

    Is there a solution to this that I am missing?

    Try to tick "Use Native Window" from Settings > Appearance. After restart, WM menu suppose show up as usual.
    I know; Vivaldi default window frame suppose to support that menu. Still, on Linux, there's multitude of WM.

    I use Openbox WM. Either using Native Window or Default Frame, I could use mouse to drag it to other virtual desktop/workspace.

    I tried to change the Tag line in this thread to "[SOLVED]" however, when I try to save it I get this error:

    :grin:
    Yeah, too many hiccup still haunt this forum.
    I believe one of the mods will close this after seeing your last post.



  • Okay. Thanks. I thought is was me!

    @Wayne: I (a mod, no less) was able to do it, but only after editing six or seven words in your post so the system didn't think it was a carbon copy of itself (and hence spam). I'm going to bring this up to the community managers. I get why the new anti-spam measure, but there should be an exception for you or a mod editing only your own title.

    @Ayespy Yeah it's silly if I can post the message in the first place but can't mark it as solved when there's a solution, even though it's requested that we do so. Definitely over use of spam filters, but thank you for helping out with that.
