Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
metacity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I have four active workspaces.
When I hit CTL-ALT left-arrow or CTL-ALT right-arrow, the workspace switches.
However, when I hit CTL-ALT up-arrow or CTL-ALT down-arrow, nothing happens.

The same for moving active program to a new workspace.
When I hit CTL-ALT-SHIFT left-arrow or CTL-ALT-SHIFT right-arrow, the program changes workspaces.
However, when I hit CTL-ALT-SHIFT up-arrow or CTL-ALT-SHIFT down-arrow, nothing happens.

If you download CompizConfig Settings manager, you can reset this in the desktop wall section.

Ok I found it. To continue with Robert, open CompizConfig Settings manager if you have it or download it from the Ubuntu Software Center. In the Desktop category, click on Desktop Wall. Then under Bindings and Move with window within walls you with find the shortcuts to the workspace switcher. On the right hand side you will find a backspace icon on every setting, that is the reset value button. Click on the reset for Move up and Move down. That should fix it. Hoped it helped.
