Some Linux applications (running under MATE 32-bit) do not by default display the desktop manager's title bar. That in turn prevents one from right-clicking on the application's title bar and choosing Move to Workspace [N].

There are, however, some Linux + MATE applications that enable that to be changed. For example, in the Vivaldi browser one can click Settings --> Appearance --> Use Native Window to add the MATE title bar to Vivaldi's window as shown here:

The SN client for Linux does not offer one a similar choice. IF one opens the SN desktop client in, say, Workspace 3, THEN moving the client to Wordspace 2 requires one to close SN, move to Workspace 2, then start the SN client there.

This seems suboptimal. Can the Linux desktop client be modified to enable it to be moved to different MATE desktop workspaces?

Cheers & thanks,

I'll add that in MATE (and perhaps other desktop managers) one can use CTRL+SHIFT+ALT in conjunction with RIGHT and LEFT arrow keys to move the active window to a different workspace.

That's a circumvention. But I'm still wondering if SN can be made a bit more mouse-friendly...
