[Bug 449254] Re: Workspace switcher columns functions incorrectly


I've seen some fixes that involve manually editing your gconf settings,
unfortunately they did not work for me.

What does seem to work, and sheds light on why the bug is caused, is to
do the following:

1) Kill compiz (with something like 'metacity --replace')
2) Right-click on the workspace switcher (which probably now looks like a 1x2 box) and select preferences.
3) Change it to 1x1
4) Restart compiz (with something like 'compiz --replace')

It seems that the workspace switcher that compiz uses or puts up in
place of the regular switcher is using some of the regular switchers
settings. Ah well.

Interestingly enough I had a workspace switcher in another panel that
was working fine, maybe that's why editing my gconf settings didn't
work, because they probably need to have different settings.

You received this bug notification because you are a member of compiz
