View Full Version : [SOLVED] Workspace Switcher, going round in circles

September 6th, 2011, 10:06 AM

I use muliple workspaces in one row, and I would like to be able to go around in "circles" when switching between them (being able to go from the last workspace (4 for me) to 1 by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Right arrow). In the Workspace Switcher menu the only options I get is to choose how many colums and rows i want. Anyone know how I can fix this? I have Ubuntu 11.04 and GNOME 2.32.1.

Hello and Welcome

If I understand correctly , what you are describing is possible with the cube , but the cube of course has a limitation of four workspaces.

In ccsm, going to Desktop Wall>Viewport Switching and ticking "Allow Wrap-Around" should be what you're after.

Haha, I didn't even know I had something called ccsm! But enabling Desktop Cube and Rotate Cube fixed the problem! Thanks!
