    Thanks for the explanation. I guess some people would find that useful, particularly on large multi-monitors. For a single monitor, personally, I feel that using separate desktops is more useful.

    That still works for me. I'm surprised it doesn't for you. But Unity is still a bit buggy.

    Ctrl+Shift+Alt+arrow does this.

    Re: 12.04 Desktop Cube Compiz Issues

    I use several different profiles in Firefox for different purposes, and have different launchers for each profile.

    Unfortunately, a recent update 'fixed' Firefox so that the default launcher captures all Firefox windows, regardless of which profile launcher launched it, so I can't just click on the profile icon to zip over to it anymore...

    I know about the hot-keys for moving the cube around, I was just thinking about using a launcher button to spin the cube around when I am mousing and don't have hands on the keyboard.

    ... dangit! I just realized why my add-on buttons are all messed up-- Mozilla added some stupid 'User Studies' crap to my browser!

    Install xdotool then make a launcher with command
    Code:
    xdotool key <your Compiz shortcut>
    For example to rotate to Face #1.
    Code:
    xdotool key Super+1
    Sadly that won't work with the Wall, I still haven't found a way to switch to a given viewport. xdotool offers some functions in that regard but it's still not enough.

    LewisTM, that's clever. I shall remember that trick.

    Hrm. There is a command-line that will spin the cube: wmctrl

    I found a tidbit here. You need to know your resolution and not be changing it all the time (unless you'd want to do some serious coding...)

    I had tried wmctrl before but couldn't understand its syntax. The link cleared it up, it works now. Thanks!

    Another way to spin the cube without the keyboard is using easystroke mouse gestures.
    Set the gestures to your compiz shortcuts.

    The rotate cube settings don't work because you don't have desktop space open? I've always used mouse 4 and 5 to rotate and had it set to be grabbed and moved with the middle button.

    How many buttons does your mouse have? I didn't know they came with more than three.
