Grab, move windows with keyboard on LXDE

lxdeGnome provides a hotkey to move windows with your keyboard only: Alt+F7. To use the same binding on the LXDE  desktop environment (which uses Openbox), edit the file ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml and add the following in it as a keybind in the keyboard section:

<keybind key="A-F7">
  <action name="Move"/>

For immediate effect, run:

$ openbox --reconfigure

When you are done moving a window with the arrow keys, press Enter.

If you are a Unity user, use Ctrl-Super-arrow keys to move the focused window.
