I think Elyssa was the first LinuxMint version to include Gnome-do and also the ability to scroll through several workplaces (apparently alternative desktops). They all show the same links and application shortcuts.
I find Gnome-do considerably less than intuitive!
So far I haven't experimented with scrollable desktops. Is there a manual somewhere about this? I've looked through the Gnome documentation - a bit obscure for me but found nothing relevant. I presume the feature is part of Gnome?
With thanks for any advice.
