Is it possible with Puppy (4.3.1 or dPup with JWM) to disable the Alt modifier being used to move windows around?

I use some Windows software in Wine that relies on an Alt modifier for various tasks which I can't perform.

Regards
Caleb

IIRC the last time someone asked this they were told that particular keybinding isn't configurable with JWM and to check if it is configurable with Icewm or some other window manager. If you were keen I imagine it would be fairly easy to hack the JWM source to remove the feature though.

Interesting... I've just checked, and Alt-left click only moves inactive windows, so I wouldn't have thought it would be much of a problem. But I am using a recent snapshot of JWM - does it also move active windows with the JWM version you have?

Both active and inactive windows are moved here.

I had a feeling it might have been a limitation of JWM. Bummer.

I don't know if it's a good idea for me to try to hack and recompile JWM even if the source code changes were simple. I'm not really a good C programmer and I'm guessing the recompile won't go exactly without a hitch.

I didn't see options to disable the Alt + left-click assignment in IceWM either, but it won't hurt to install it and check it out.
