I use Linux Mint, and unfortunately, I can't use a lot of the Node Wrangler shortcuts because they conflict with the Operating System shortcuts. For example, I can't use Lazy Mix because it moves the window instead. I went inside the Node Wrangler source code and tried to change it to a differnt short cut (which kind of works...) but I still have to release the right mouse button and such. Can anybody explain how to get around this OR what each of these parameters represent in the Node Wrangler addon?:

# Lazy Mix
(NWLazyMix.bl_idname, 'RIGHTMOUSE', 'PRESS', False, False, True, None, "Lazy Mix"),

Edit: If I can do what gandalf3 suggested in the comments, that would work too.

    $\begingroup$ I typically change the move/resize window shortcut to Meta + Mouse button in my desktop environment. Blender doesn't use the meta modifier key anywhere, and once you get used to it it's kind of logical.. Use the windows key for window operations ;) Solves conflicts with blender all over the place (not just the node wrangler addon). $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Jun 12 '15 at 6:23
  • $\begingroup$ @gandalf3 Okay, how do you do that? $\endgroup$ – Anson Savage Jun 12 '15 at 15:56
  • $\begingroup$ Depends on what window manager/desktop environment you use (KDE, Xfce, Openbox, etc.). $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Jun 12 '15 at 18:24
  • $\begingroup$ @gandalf3 It looks like openbox, but let me check. I know my desktop environment is Cinnamon. $\endgroup$ – Anson Savage Jun 12 '15 at 19:51

What I ended up doing was going into the Windows settings and changing the "Special key to move and resize windows" to Super (the windows button) instead of Alt.enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ I'm not sure, but I think there might be an option for none also, but this might GNOME 3 only. $\endgroup$ – TARDIS Maker Jun 13 '15 at 1:49
