Cinnamon Set Workspace Names

Postby GeorgeHahn » Sat Oct 13, 2012 4:26 pm

In cinnamon 1.6, workspaces in the expo can have custom names applied. However, these names are not carried through to the window right click menu (Move to another workspace ->).

Workspace names in the right click menu are set by the workspace-names key in org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences, as such:

Code: Select all

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences workspace-names "['Entertainment', 'Projects', 'Programming', 'Learning', 'Homework']"

Sadly, these names do not carry through to the expo names, so you'll have to set everything twice.
