Thread: "workspace switcher" doesn't work in 11.2

    Default "workspace switcher" doesn't work in 11.2

    Hello,
    I have just upgraded from Suse 11.1 to 11.2, and after some initial problems the upgraded installation seems to work, except for the following annoying problem: the "workspace switching" application (lower right on the toolbar, next to the date/time indication) will not work. On 11.1 I could grab a window in one workspace and drag it to another. In 11.2, however, in spite of a message "click to start dragging", dragging does not work. Does anybody know something about this?
    Regards,
    bostjanv

    Works here, so it's not an 11.2 problem but something in your setup.

    Hi,
    Can you please share what you had to reconfigure in order to get it working?

    Regards

    I'm completely stumped. I sent a query to the gnome forum, but so far nobody answered. Another thing I did was to reinstall the gnome applets ... nothing.

    Try making a new user to see if they're affected...?

    I don't know gnome, but in KDE I can right-click the title bar of app in question and send it to whichever workspace I want it on, might be a workaround until you get it how you want?

    Hello,
    Thanks for the suggestion. A new user is affected by the same symptom (cannot drag between workspaces). This suggests that the issue is a consequence of some global setting. Apart from that I have no idea how to proceed.

    Hello,
    Thanks. I checked it out and the method works in Gnome as well. It's a relief to know that I still have the functionality, even though it's not as good from the ease of use standpoint.

    Did you install compiz in your old install?
