My Unity DE is 98% fabulous and I have 4 horizontal workspaces that I can mouse wheel scroll through to my hearts delight. Unfortunately, I need to run a VirtualBox VM running Win 7 Pro (I assign it to one of the workspaces) and for some reason that currently alludes me, the bottom half of the Windows bottom panel is missing. There are some other issues, but never no mind. So I tried bringing in the Gnome DE and praise the Great Pumkin the VB Windows VM works a treat; Win bottom panel all correct and accounted for. Unfortunately, in GS the workspaces are vertical, not horizontal, amd imo that makes switching a nightmare.
I've tried CCSM to set the #workspaces to 4h x 1v but the setting doesn't seem to 'stick'. If I go back into CCSM after making these changes the number of workspaces has reset to 1 horizontal, and vertical and number of desktops are both blank. I'm at a loss to figure out what to do next and would appreciate any advice.
For reference, here's my current specs courtesy of a VinDSL script:
Edit: Hmmm... I just checked Gnome-Tweak-Tool and I have Dynamic Workspaces switched 'off' and with the number set to 4... there is nowhere to set the orientation of those workspaces. Very confusing.
