Bug Description

Binary package hint: hamster-applet

1) $ lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu lucid (development branch)
Release: 10.04

2) $ apt-cache policy hamster-applet
  Installed: 2.29.90-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 2.29.90-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 2.29.90-0ubuntu1 0
        500 http://archive.ubuntu.com lucid/universe Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3) I expected to see four workspaces in hamster-applet's preferences dialog under the "Workspaces" tab since I have set up "Workspace Switcher" to have four workspaces (by right-clicking the applet and choosing 4 columns).

4) I see only one, which corresponds with the "Number of Desktops" option in CompizConfig Settings Manager - this might be unrelated though.

description: updated

Still the same behavior on Maverick.
Is there a workaround other than disabling desktop effects? Increasing the "Number of Desktops" in compizconfig-settings-manager is not possible on my computer.
