In Ubuntu 14.04 under Gnome flashback I don't see the former Navigation menu under Keyboard under Settings. I want to define shifts between workspaces (not CNTRL+ALT+cursor but only CNTRL+cursor), the 12 function keys to open my 12 workspaces, and to shift open windows between workspaces with CNTRL+ALT+cursor.

How do I do such now?


I like it with Super + [1-6]. In one go set it with a simple terminal command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-to-workspace-1 "['<Super>1']"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-to-workspace-2 "['<Super>2']"
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings switch-to-workspace-n "['<Super>n']"

OR with GUI App:

Install dconf-tool

sudo apt-get install dconf-tools

ALT + F2, and run:


Navigate to "org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings" have a look there.

Look for attribute: switch-to-workspace-[1-12]

Set value like this:
