Enable Workspaces / Multiple Desktops in Ubuntu 13.04
Default installation of Ubuntu 13.04 has workspaces disabled or one is left with only a single desktop. If you want to enable it, here is what to do.
Launch system settings and then open Appearance settings.
Move to Behavior tab and check the Enable workspaces box and you have regular 2×2 workspace.
Not too pleased with the default 2×2 or 4 workspaces and want more. Read on.
Install compizconfig-settings-manager by doing
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
Beware: Don’t mess with this tool (use with caution), it may break Unity for you and you may end up with unusable GUI X-desktop.
Launch the compizconfig-settings manager from command line or start menu and then go to General Settings and just change the number of Horizontal virtual size and Vertical virtual size as per your needs.
