I see a workspace switcher icon on the Unity dash bar. However, when I press it, workspace switcher never activates. Nothing happens.

I don't remember disabling this feature ever.

Can anyone help?

PS. this is a switcher icon on dash bar I am talking about.

Did it ever work? –  January Sep 17 '13 at 16:05
Does ctrl+alt+arrow work? –  dan08 Sep 17 '13 at 16:26
@January Can't remember. Have been using Gnome for a couple of years and now simply logged onto Unity. –  ubuntico Sep 17 '13 at 16:49
@dan08 Yes, switching to desktops work! –  ubuntico Sep 17 '13 at 16:49
This helped. askubuntu.com/questions/67099/…. Expo was turned off. –  ubuntico Sep 17 '13 at 16:55
