[Bug 251761] Re: Cant change number of workspaces


Johan Walles,
I have a similar problem in Xubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, and it is a bug in Compiz, from what I can tell. 
Compiz seemed fixed at two workspaces, and every time I switched back to xfwm, the number of workspaces with which it started would go down, until only one workspace was available any time I would switch to xfwm.

The temporary fix mentioned by Fred worked for me on Compiz, which runs with the correct number of desktops now, regardless of whether I restart it. 
I repeat the fix I tried below:
1. Open CompizConfig Settings Manager (CCSM).
2. Select "General Options" icon.
3. Select the "Desktop Size" tab.
4. Set the "Horizontal Virtual Size" to 4.

However, if I switch back to xfwm, only one workspace appears. To see
more workspaces, I have to add them by "alt-insert".
