Hi everyone!
I am a former user of Ubuntu (again ^^).
I'm a bit confused because when i use my worspace switch, all my workspace are horizontally align.
Do you know how i can make this looks like ubuntu with a 2*2 workspace swich (or more but not align horizontally)
Thank's a lot !

There is probably more than one way to do it johnvox, but since I did it myself earlier today, I will give you my method.

If you haven't already got it go to and install Ubuntu Tweak. I am not using LMDE myself but I have done in the past and if my (unreliable) memory is correct it should run well enough. When you have installed U-T you go to the 'Tweaks' section and click on the 'Workspace' icon. You then set the horizontal and vertical sliders to 2 and that is it done.
