    Enable window switcher keystrokes in ubuntu 13.04

    I love the ctrl-alt-left (and all related) keystrokes for switching workspaces in Ubuntu. I recently made the mistake of disabling OpenGL in the ccsm (dumb, I know). I've since re-enabled OpenGL, but the one feature that seems to not have returned is the ability to switch workspaces with the ctrl-alt-left keystrokes.
    A few notes:
    (1) I CAN switch workspaces with super-s and then left-right-up-down. However, I find this slow, and I also can't move items between workspaces this way.
    (2) I HAVE enabled workspaces (i.e. "Enable workspaces" is checked in the Appearances window), since this is 13.04.
    (3) In the Keyboard settings, the key bindings do appear to be set properly (e.g. "Switch to workspace left" is set to Ctrl+Alt+Left)
    Any ideas? Thanks!

    I can't be of great help at the moment as I am running Kubuntu.
    But since you have compizconfig-settings-manager installed go to viewport switcher and then to the keybindings tab.
    You can set the keybinding there.

    If that happens to be the wrong place, which it might be, my memory is scant, try Desktop wall.

    Edit: Yeah so the keybinding can be found in Desktop Wall > Bindings.
    Set the bindings in the section for "move within wall".
