View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unity launch bar, limiting application previews to current workspace

I've just started using Unity and I realized that the launch bar doesn't do quite what I would like. I tend to use many workspaces each for different purposes and it would be great if application previews could be modified such that instead of showing a preview for every open window on every workspace it only showed previews for windows on the current workspace. Is this possible?

A second tweak I would like (if possible) is to show the previews on mouse over instead of left click. Ideally there would be a short delay just like the Windows 7 launch bar. How would I do that?

Also, is there a specific menu for Unity settings? I could not find one.

Also if you would like to make more changes to compiz like the cube or effects you can use this guide with pictures to set it up.
