Ubuntu :: Workspace Switcher Changed After Hooking Laptop Up To HDTV?

Oct 1, 2010

I'm having a really odd problem with my workspace switcher. First off, I keep 5 workspaces all in one row.

My problems: When I use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl + Alt + Left or Ctrl + Alt + Right I can switch workspaces just fine, however I have a xbindkeys install set up to detect specific keypresses from my Logitech MX Revolution and spit out those very shortcuts, and they aren't working. When using the keyboard shortcuts to switch workspaces there's a new look to the visual aid that pops up in the middle of the screen. It's much boxier and ugly looking, and I'd like to get it back to the way it was before, with the larger boxes with rounded edges and no text. This started last night when I plugged my laptop into my Panasonic HDTV via S-Video. Can anyone tell me how to uninstall the workspace switcher component and reinstall it? I'm fairly new to Ubuntu and just want the default settings back. I'm running 10.04 btw.

Ubuntu :: Workspace Rows Without Workspace Switcher?

Mar 31, 2011

Is there any way to have workspaces on multiple rows without the workspace switcher added to a panel? I have limited screen space so i want to try and remove any unnecessary items. I have tried using a drawer, but the workspace application is not loaded until the drawer is opened once. Also note I am not running compiz as the computer is a netbook.

Ubuntu :: Bug In Workspace Switcher

Nov 11, 2010

Maverick 10.10

I believe these are bugs or omissions.

When using the Workspace switcher you can no longer drag an application from one screen (workspace) to another. I like to use 8 different screens to avoid clutter.

You also were allowed on the Preferences menu to change the default name of the workspace from "workspace 1" to just "1".

Before Maverick you could hover the mouse over a workspace and the name would appear. Now the only things that appears is workspace 1 without regard for whatever workspace you are on.

To me an omission of a necessary or important feature is a Bug. If this was done by design than it is a design bug.

Ubuntu :: Old Workspace Switcher On Unity?

May 2, 2011

I've been using Natty(unity as desktop) since the beta now and it is really growing on me except for the workspaces. Is there a way to see what workspace I am on? *When typing I usually switch with ctrl-alt-"left/right/up/down" but after some work i don't always know what desktop i am one so switching is usually trial and error jumping from desktop to desktop or pressing super-s to get an overview. Seeing which desktop I'm on (maybe in the unity workspace button) would help with that.

*When just using the mouse I used to click on the workspace launcher and I would be on the desktop of my choice in one click but now I need to click on the switcher, identify where I am and where I need to go and it breaks the flow of fast switching, its no advantage anymore compared to just opening all programs on 1 workspace and using super-w I guess there are upcoming changes on the switcher as unity is still in its infancy so is there a way to put the old switcher in the top panel again?

Ubuntu :: Workspace Switcher Not Configurable On Second Screen?

Apr 7, 2011

I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed on a laptop with a second monitor configured as a separate x screen.

I configured the workspace switcher applet on the laptop screen to be 2x2 and it changed appropriately. When I go to the preferences for the workspace switcher on the second screen it says it's set to two columns and two rows but still displays as the default four columns and one row and any changes made have no effect.

I changed the setting num_rows from one to two under apps/panel/applets/workspace_switcher_screen1/prefs using gconf-editor and restarted my gnome-panels but it had no effect.

Is there anyway to make the workspace switcher on the second screen display as 2x2?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Unity - Can't Get Rid Of Workspace Switcher?

Apr 29, 2011

I don't want to use more than one workspace. On previous versions of Ubuntu, I was able to reduce the number of workspaces to 1 and and remove the workspace switcher from the panel. I want to do this in Unity and can't find a way to. Right clicking doesn't let me remove from the launcher and I can find no way to reduce the workspaces.

Ubuntu :: Workspace Switcher Missing Important Functionality?

Mar 20, 2010

I just installed a fresh copy of 9.10. My problem is the way Workspace Switcher 2.28.0 (the default of the installation) with compiz running (I haven't tried without compiz) Old behaviour: (9.04 and 8.10) a) rolling the mouse wheel over a workspace of the workspace switcher means: move to the next or previous workspace b) click on a the representation of a window (a little square) on the the workspace switcher and then drag it to another workspace means: move window to other workspace

In 9.10 the workspace switcher does work (the number of workspace can be configured, Ctl-Alt-left & right arrow, Ctlr-Shiht-Alt-right&left arrow) but the functionality described in a and b is missing.

Ubuntu Installation :: Natty - Workspace Switcher Not Working

Apr 30, 2011

I just upgraded to Natty, from Maverick and I can't get 'Workspace-Switcher' to work. As a matter-of-fact, I was completely dumbfounded when Natty launched for the first time, and I was presented with 'no' menus. What I got instead was some black-screen with some very attractive icons on it; but the icons had no organization to them that I could comprehend, and the categories that were presented didn't make any sense, based on the applications that I had installed. Apparently the designers of Unity thought that it would be a good idea for me to go 'fish' for my applications. Also, the most frequently used applications that I had pinned to gnome-panel disappeared, and I couldn't even rebuild them. The 3D menu, on the left, that combined my desktop icons, with the icons that were 'formerly' pinned to gnome-panel was also very attractive; but provided me with no useful functionality, other than complete disorientation and confusion. The scrolling was also slower than poo. All-in-all a very beautiful 'boat-anchor.' This distro should probably be renamed 'Virtual-Vista.' Fortunately, when I reenabled 'Desktop-Cube' and 'Rotate-Cube' and I think some other options related to Gnome, I got my menus and icons back. What a relief!!! I'm a power-user, and I have something on the order of 100 applications loaded. I just 'can't' go looking all-over-creation to find them...

Unfortunately, Workspace-Switcher could not be activated by clicking on it, only by <ctrl-alt-left/right arrow keys>. Also, unfortunately, all the desktops displayed the same applications. Definitetly 'not' a ready for prime-time player. I assume that this is a bug? Is there a work-around for this? If so, can someone please share it with me? For now I'm stuck with a ruptured-duck that can't swim. I usually have all four desktops populated, and switch between them whenever I have to wait on an application that's busy, or I get tired. I really 'need' this functionality.

P.S., It's more than Ok with me that a distro not be released, if it's not ready. I'd certainly prefer that to 'shock-and-awe.'

Ubuntu :: Workspace Switcher On Panel Does Not Show All Workspaces?

Jul 2, 2011

I have a workspace switcher on one of my panels, and it has ten columns by one row. However, when Ubuntu first starts up, it only shows four workspaces. By screwing around with the settings, I eventually get it to show all ten, but it would be nice if I didn't have to do that. What is going on?

Ubuntu :: Gnome Classic - Lost Workspace Switcher After Upgrades?

Jun 16, 2011

I use the Gnome Classic DE in 11.04. Last night, safe-upgrade made a small number of package upgrades (three or four). When I rebooted my PC, this morning, my workspace switcher (the four tiny squares in the bottom panel on the right side of the screen) are gone. I use them regularly.Also, is there any history to identify what packages were upgraded last night so I can look for bugs?

Ubuntu :: Natty - Compiz Workspace Switcher Can't Switch Down From W/space #1?

Jul 16, 2011

I've just (finally) upgraded to Natty from Maverick. After the faffing around to restore my favoured AWN and Compiz combo, all's now ok, except for one annoyance to do with Compiz (0.9.4) and the workspace switcher. I can use the mousewheel to rotate workspaces up/down (actually, left/right) to go from 1->2->3->4->5->6->1.. and 6->5->4->3->2->1, but it won't rotate down / left from 1->6. It works ok if I use <Ctrl>left arrow from w/space #1.

I've checked the mappings for Button4 and Button5 in CCSM, and there's no clash. So, am I right in thinking this is probably a bug? Has anyone else had this problem and is there a fix? Is downgrading to Compiz 0.8 likely to fix it?

Also the Cairo Dock bugs out with the workspace switcher applet attached to it. I can change desktops with key commands fine. It would just be nice if this could be fixed. I am sticking with gnome 2.32 because of my affinity with Evolution which performs better in 2.32.

Is it possible to remove the workspace switcher icon from the launcher? [solved] I've removed the places icons as per this thread and wouldn't mind removing this icon as well.

Ubuntu :: Applications Jump From Their Workspace To The Current Workspace

Jul 20, 2011

I believe I may have found a bug in Unity. Under the right circumstances an application will jump from the workspace where I left them to my current workspace. This is most noticeable with VirtualBox. I built an Ubuntu 11.04 virtual machine so that I could test out new packages before I push them out to the rest of my machines. But the window for the virtual machine constantly appears in my current workspace. It may take a few minutes, or 30 minutes, but it will happen.

I can kind of understand it if a new window appears, but at least with VirtualBox, this happens on a running virtual machine seemingly randomly.

Programming :: Print Out "old Workspace" Since OverwriteWorkspaceEnv Equals "no" - Nothing Changed

This is what prints out: no new workspace. why the script is printing out "new workspace", when overwriteWorkspaceEnv is equal to "no". Shouldn't it print out "old workspace", since overwriteWorkspaceEnv equals "no"? I tried changing the else to an elif with $overwriteWorkspaceEnv="no" as the argument and nothing changed.

Hardware :: USB TV Tuner With HD Support For Hooking A PS3 Up?

Jan 13, 2010

I think the subject title says it all, but well... that's what I would like to do, to buy a TV tuner with support for HD resolution (although I'll be working with a 15.6" 16:9 1366x768 display, laptop one) to hook up a PS3 and not having to spend some extra cash on a display (ideally).

Can anyone give me a hint on this? The only 'premise' I ideally pursue is for the device to fully work, I mean... fuck DVB-T per se, I'm not interested in TV reception, just to put the A/V signal out of the PS3 and onto the tuner and use a program like tvtime (ideally), but something that can work reliably (even if I have to grab a tarball or a cvs/svn/git tree and compile it myself, as I use a custom-made+deviated CLFS/LFS distro, I'm more than accustomed to compile everything by hand).
