when I try moving a window via keys alt+f2 then move while in it, puppy exits to prompt i.e. x server stops.

To move a window around on the desktop.

Alt button hold.
Left mouse button click on window and hold.
Move mouse around.

Note:
Placement of mouse pointer is important.
The location of the pointer, is the limit of movement past edge of screen.
The window will move the full range of the mouse pointer on screen.
Just move, to different location of mouse pointer, to change movement amount with window.

Thanks for the tip but my problem doesn't involve the mouse at all. I want to use shortcut keys on the keyboard that don't require mouse. They are
1. press alt+f2
2. on the drop-down menu select move by pressing down arrow key followed by press enter
3. press the arrow keys to move the window arround

My problem is at step 2, right after pressing enter. X exits when I do.
I really need this solved as I depend on it for my workflow

Ok, I see what you are talking about.

Not sure what is causing this.

However, I just made a different alt + key combo to do it.

Menu>Desktop>JWMDesk Manager>Desktop tab>JWM Hotkey>Add new shortcut

I used:
Code:
alt+z

That seems to work for me.
Plus the left alt and z key are next to each other and easier to push.

See if it works for you.

Have not looked to deep to see if alt+z messes up anything, but I do not think so.

Nice bigpup.

Editing my .jwmrc keybindings section to include
Code:
<Key mask="A" key="z">window</Key>

and alt-z and arrow down to 'move' and pressing Enter ... and the window can be moved using the arrow keys (Enter when done).

Using the default alt-f2 keybinding, X crashes. And I'm using VoidLinux so its not a XenialPup alone issue.

I've edited it to now use alt-j (j ... for jwm menu) instead of F1, so my .jwmrc snippet now looks like
Code:
    <Key mask="A" key="#">desktop#</Key>
    <Key mask="A" key="F1">root:1</Key>
    <Key mask="A" key="j">window</Key>
    <Key mask="A" key="F10">maximize</Key>

Cannot confirm. Tried in pristine xenialpup 7.5.
Alt+F2 and then selecting Move with keyboard and Enter worked without problems.
