Bug Description

I've 4 workspaces enabled.

on the side launcher I can see the workspace icon - Clicking on the icon I'd expect it to display the 4 work spaces so I can then navigate to them. This doesn't happen. Nothing happens.

I used to be able to ctlr+alt and up down left right arrows navigate my way to different work spaces now nothing happens.

Work spaces is enabled

Hi Laura,

I cannot reproduce this issue on my fully updated Saucy machine. I wonder if the Wall plugin somehow got disabled.

Could please open up CCSM and see if the Wall plugin is enabled?
