View Full Version : [ubuntu_studio] 14.04: Workspace Switcher - multiple instances bug

July 11th, 2014, 10:24 AM
I heavily tweak my desktop layout in Ubuntu Studio, and have run into what is clearly a bug in the XFCE Workspace Switcher.

I use the switcher in two different panels, and I want both to look the same (nine workspaces, laid out in a 3x3 arrangement). This only works properly for a single instance of the switcher. On Panel 0, the switcher is just fine, 3x3 layout as-configured by editing the panel details. When I add the switcher to another panel, it also appears perfectly.

However, when I reboot and log into the same account again the second instance of the switcher has gone back to only showing a single row of workspaces. If I right-click and look at the switcher's preferences they're correct and simply doing this fixes the switcher.

I'll settle for "how do I make the change systemwide?", but it'd be nice to see this fixed.
