I work with an additional monitor connected to my laptop. When I upgraded from 13.04 to 13.10, the workspace switcher view has changed. In 13.04 I was getting both of the screens showing one switcher view spread across both screens but now each screen is showing a duplicate view. I liked the old way better. How can I switch it back?
I found the answer to my question in CCSM. The following screenshot shows the related page. You can reach it under Expo settings. At the bottom of the image, the combo box named Multi Output Mode is what I needed. Changing it from
One wall per output to
One big wall did it.
For 14.04, You can find "Desktop Wall" in CCSM. There is a tab "Viewport Switching" and there is an option called "Multimonitor behavior", you should change it to "Switch seperately"
13.10, Desktop-AMD64 Saucy Salamander has the Workspace utility switched off by default. Install "Unity Tweak Tool", launch the application and click on "Workspace Settings".
