I had this feature in 11.10 after using a tweak by Ubuntu tweak. The new version for 12.04 seems not to have this tweak. How can I get this tweak?
You can achieve that with CompizConfig Settings Manager.
Install CompizConfig Settings Manager:
Hit Alt+Ctrl+T to open terminal and run following command:
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
Or search for "compizconfig-settings-manager" in Software Center and install it from there.
How to set it up?
- Once installed, Hit Super key (Windows key) to open Unity dash and search for "ccsm" and open it.
- Navigate to Desktop > Viewport Swicher
- Goto "Desktop-based Viewport Switching"
- Enable and set "Move Next" to button 5, And "Move Prev" to button 4.
I just installed Ubuntu 15.04, and I found a better way (at least for me) than the
Move Next /
Move Prev described by Basharat Sialvi, still using the CompizConfig Settings Manager that he suggested: in the
Desktop Wall page, in the tab
Edge Flipping, enable
Edge Flip Pointer to switch to the next viewport.
