I have been using Workspace switcher in Ubuntu just fine but recently have encountered this problem. The windows in the switcher don't fill the screen. I must have pressed some combination of buttons somehow but can't find any information anywhere in regards to resizing them.

As you can see in the screen shot it looks like a perspective view or something.

Workspace switcher skewed

I should also add I have a dual monitor setup and nvidia graphics. The switcher still works but the fact the screens don't fit my actual screens is driving me nuts. Thanks in advance for any help.

  • Did someone mess with ccsm options? Coz its an option there...

  • Thanks for the pointer! I found the answer in CSSM. I had the expo plugin setting on tilt somehow. I set it back to none and now all is back to normal.

I found the answer in Compiz Config Settings Manager. Under the desktop setting I clicked on the Expo window,then from the Appearance tab set the Deformation to None.
