Workspaces are not working properly
So I really have no idea why, but my workspace switcher's union rep contacted me, and it's on strike.
-I either have 1 desktop, or 4 desktops
-with 4 desktops everything opens in workspace 1 or when I switch to another workspace everything stops responding (but the background will still change, music still plays, viedos etc) the pannel disapers and all input methods stop responding.
-(this one has been happening for some time, and just got filed under annoying, but since everything went strange) When I have a window maximized and switch desktops it goes along with me and shows up on that workspace. This happens with non maximized windows as well but not as frequently.
-(Also filled under annoying) I used to be able to just drag a window to another desktop. This no longer works. Or it will visually move the window to the new workspace but then as soon as I release the window it goes back to wherever it was orriginally. (Just used right click and send to workspace for a workaround)
I am using gnome clasic 12.04 with compiz enabled. Any help in fixing any of this would be greatly apprecieated.
Re: Workspaces are not working properly
Ok so thanks to this...http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2071662 I've got the basic switching back with out crashing things(so far)
so -remove pannel app workspace switcher
-in compiz set desktop to 1 and the your grid to whatever you want
-re apply workspace switcher to pannel
So Now I'm just back to the annoying problems, since I opened the thread I suppose I'll see if I can fix those too.
