Previously (11.04) when I Ctrl+Alt+Arrow Keyed I'd get a 2x2 grid of workspaces to switch to which I could do really easily. Since I updated however this has become one single row.

I've tried installing Workspace Indicator and others but no matter how many rows I set, I always just get one.

Any ideas?

Are you using ubuntu2d desktop? – Bruno Pereira Oct 21 '11 at 9:49
That's the one I'm choosing on login – Ben Stephenson Oct 21 '11 at 10:09

This is a known bug with ubuntu2d apparently.

There is a python script used by one of the users on that bug report that might work for you.

Add your issue to that bug report to push developers to solve it ;)

CCSM, General Options (or Settings -I don't know, my UBUNTU is in Spanish-), and choose 2 frames? vertical and 2 horizontal.

Just for anyone else, this seems to have been fixed now after using sudo apt-get upgrade
