View Full Version : [ubuntu] Lost multiple desktop selection, need help.

April 30th, 2011, 05:29 AM
Flight gear locked up my desk top view and stayed that way. I simply ran the other desktops until I was finished.
Then I got the brainfart to simply right click and "delete panel", thinking this would end the problem and be easy to re-enable the multiple desk top panel.
I've seen it before, or at least where you can choose the number of desktops. Apparently I was wrong I cannot seem to find any way to re-enable the multiple desktop panel :confused: :oops:

(Just to be clear, Im talking about the little boxs, on the bottom task bar, just left of the trash can, that allows you to select differnt desk tops. Default is 4.)

Sometimes I have to learn the hard way.

If you indeed removed the entire bottom panel, you need first to right-click at the remaining panel (if any) and choose "New Panel" if you haven't done so already, then
- right-click at the desired panel
- choose "Add to Panel"
- select "Workspace Switcher" in the upcoming list
- click at "Add"
- if you haven't done so already, do the same for "Window List" and "Trash"

"Add to panel" and "Workspace Switcher" was all I needed.
Thank You very much.
