Under X Windows it is possible to move mouse cursor using shift+Num Lock and the numeric keypad as described in this wikipedia page. However, when you have two monitors running resolution of 3360x1050 moving cursor this way is rather slow. I am wondering if there is a way to quickly move mouse cursor anywhere inside of the active window.
A usage scenario is:
- Alt+tab to switch from "Window A" to "Window B" with both on two different monitor and both are visible. The mouse cursor stays in "Window A"
- Press some keyboard shortcut to send mouse cursor to "Window B"
Please let me know if there's some keyboard shortcut like this for any windows manager, bbkeys, etc.
I found that I can use something similar to
xdotool mousemove x y
to move cursor to a specific location. Thus, I create a script to do exactly that and map keys in my windows manager to call the script.
