I have a typical Gnome setup, in which i can move/switch between workspaces, by hitting ctrl+alt+‹or›arrow. But when i'm in workspace 1, hitting ctrl+alt+ has no effect, and similarly for my maximum workspace (typically 4).

Is there any way I can have this cycle around, so that hitting ctrl+alt+ in workspace 4 will bring me back around to 1?
