I'm looking for a Linux utility that allows me to define arbitrary keyboard shortcuts that will move the frontmost window to a specific absolute position on-screen, depending on the shortcut.

An OSX utility which does this is Breeze (http://autumnapps.com/breeze/ ) -- Is there a Linux equivalent?

Could you specify what window manager or desktop environment you are using? –  Trey Hunner Jun 2 '10 at 19:43

You can use wmctrl to move a window, e.g.

wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -e 0,100,50

to move to currently active window to position (100/50). See the man page for more about what the parameters mean.

Use your window manager or something like LinEAK to bind this to keyboard shortcuts.
