Basically, i want to emulate Enlightenments behavior of changing workspaces when the mousepointer reaches the edge before the next logical workspace.
Im currently running Openbox (but cant decide yet on wether to use flux or OB) and would like my Virtual Desktop to be switched from 1 to 2 and vice veras when my mouse pointer reaches the (leftmost quarter at the) bottom/top of my desktop - any practical ideas on how that could be achieved, besides writing an application that grabs the mousepointers location and triggers xdotool/xvkbd to issue the keyboard shortcut to change workspace?

KDE can do this with "screen edges", but I don't know how to do in ____ window manager.
