Enable Workspaces on Ubuntu Unity

July 1, 2013

Ubuntu 13.04 Raring comes with workspaces disabled by default. So you’re unable to switch between workspaces via hot-keys or shortcut icon on Unity Launcher.

To enable this feature, search and open Appearance in Unity Dash.

Appearance-unity-dash

Then you can easily switch on or off the wordspaces as well as the shortcut keys at Behaviour tab.

After enabled this feature, use Ctrl+Alt+ Up (Down, Left, Right) key combination to switch between wordspaces. Or click the “Workspace Switcher” icon on Unity Launcher to view workspaces.

Enjoy!
