My desktop has 3 workspaces.
I want to make my windowsXP virtual machine show in fullscreen mode and occupy the whole 3rd workspace.
Then I can use Ctrl+Alt+Left and Ctrl+Alt+Right to switch between linux and windows environment.

But I think when the fullscreen VM window is in focus, all the key event will go to VM window.
So window manager won't receive Ctrl+Alt+Left, and the workspace switch won't happen.

I'm wondering, can I configure qemu or spice-gtk not to process some specified key-combination, so it can get to window manager?
Or is there any other way?

I think this thread is related to what I'm asking.

But these keyboard/mouse event things is difficult for me, still learning...
