Workspaces – How to Arrange in Ubuntu


I just installed 14.04. I want 4 workspaces, arranged horizontally. But when I set that up, I get 4 double workspaces, i.e., 8 all together. How do I get 4 single workspaces?

Best Answer

If it is only to set the workspaces, it seems a bit overkill to install additional software. To set it from command line, you only need two commands.

Run in a terminal:

dconf write /org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/vsize 1

to set the number of rows to one, and

dconf write /org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/hsize 4

to set the number of columns to four
