Everything was working correctly until I updated my Ubuntu 16.04 to the latest kernel, etc. running a
After the update, my workspaces stopped working even though I tried to check, uncheck, reinstall
unity-control-center, etc. There are also other settings that stopped working correctly, such as the Launcher placement (Shows on both my monitor while the setting is set to only show on my primary), Sticky edges. All in all, there might be other settings that are not working correctly, as I haven't tested them all.
I even reinstall Ubuntu 16.04 on top of the other, which temporarily fix the issue. But as soon as I made the
dist-upgrade on the fresh reinstall the same settings , as above, stop working again.
Any idea why some of the settings suddenly stopped working?
If I run this command:
dconf read /org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/unityshell/num-launchers
Will return the right value, either 1 (if I set launcher on one screen) or 0 (if I set the launcher on all screens).
dconf read /org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/hsize
dconf read /org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/vsize
Both return 2 (if I tick Enable Workspaces) or 1 (if I untick Enable Workspaces)
So I'm guessing the settings actually get changed, but they are getting ignored for some reason?
Edit: I've decided to retry to upgrade packages by packages, to pinpoint which package was causing the issue. The issue appeared after updating the Unity packages.
I also tried the answer below but I still can't use workspaces, launcher placement and sticky edges sine they are being ignored.
