I have a new Dell XPS Developer Edition that came with Ubuntu pre-installed. One of the first things I did was install CompizConfig Settings Manager and enable work-spaces (4×4).
When I press Ctrl+Alt+←, the active window shrinks to half size and moves to the left side of the screen without moving the desktop. Similar happens with Ctrl+Alt+→.
Ctrl+Alt+↑ maximizes the current window. The only one that works properly is Ctrl+Alt+↓. If no windows are active, I can move between desktops no problem. Also, using Alt + Shift+Ctrl+(arrow) works just fine.
- In CompizConfig Settings Manager, Desktop Wall is enabled.
- in CompizConfig Settings Manager, Desktop-based Viewport Switching is disabled.
- In Keyboard → Shortcuts → Navigation, the shortcuts are correctly set (e. g. Switch to workspace above is set to Ctrl+Alt+↑). I do not see any settings in the keyboard shortcuts that conflict.
Any suggestions as to how to figure out what is overriding these settings and fix this issue?
