The currently selected window is hard to tell, most of the time I have to look at the title of the selected window in the top bar, there is no highlights on the selected window, how to fix that?

Do you mean, when using Alt-tab? Or clicking twice on an icon in the launcher? (Or Super+w?) – geoffrey Jun 2 '11 at 12:10
I mean using [Super]+s – Rn2dy Jun 2 '11 at 16:23

When using Super-S, the currently selected window is the one on top.

However, what I think you mean is "the current workspace" - as far as I know, there is no way to change how to do that in the ccsm package, however, I've been known to be wrong from time to time.

The currently selected window is the one that has one arrow on either side of it (on the launcher). Other windows have a single arrow on the left side.


Selected window.

Deselected window.
