Post by LizziAS » Sat Oct 20, 2018 7:06 pm

i hardly recognize it anymore. been years since i used lmde or mint. can hardly find my way around.

i want to add multiple workspaces. 7 of them should suffice in all.

how to do it?
Reboot first, ask questions later.

Which Mint version and which Desktop Environment?

If you are unsure report back the output of inxi -S run in a terminal window. Copy from the terminal and paste into [code][/code] tags in your reply.

Edit - sorry - I never checked which subforum you were posting in - presumably you are using LMDE3 Cinnamon?

Relevant Keyboard shortcuts

Switch workspace left or right - Ctrl-Alt-Left Arrow or Ctrl-Alt-Right Arrow
Expo view (workspace overview) - Ctrl-Alt-Up Arrow or Alt-F1

Relevant Panel Applets (right click in empty area of panel and chose add to panel)

Workspace Switcher applet - allows an overview of workspaces in the panel for quick switching - right click context menu allows for adding and removing workspaces.

Expo applet - click to go into Expo view.

You can also set up Hot Corner shortcuts to Expo using the Hot Corners settings module.
