Workspace switcher applet has no Number of workspaces combo box

Bug #129148 reported by Mark Sobell
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

According to the GNOME documentation (, when you right click the Workspace Switcher applet and choose Preferences, the Workspace Switcher Preferences dialog is displayed. That works, but in that dialog there is no way to change the number of workspaces or name the workspaces. I found this problem in Gutsy Tribe 3.

this still exists in 7.10
in "System>Appearances, switch desktop effects "None" to "Normal" under the "Visual Effects" tab
the options under "Workspace Switcher Preferences" are reduced to columns and rpws of Workspaces
the other options go away and the names are no longer present
switch back from "Normal" to "None" and all is restored...
