Bug Description

Binary package hint: window-picker-applet

After adding workspace switcher to the panel and putting some windows on each workspace, I do not see any effect from disabling w-p-a's "Show windows on all workspaces" option. There are always icons for all windows, regardless of which workspace they are on.
UNR 9.10, Compiz is on, Maximus is on, Netbook Launcher is off.

Generally speaking, w-p-a is only intended to be used from Ubuntu Netbook Remix, which only has a single workspace. But since the option is there... :)

This is because viewports are used in compiz and not workspaces. Will try to fix.

This bug was fixed in the package window-picker-applet - 0.5.8-0ubuntu1

window-picker-applet (0.5.8-0ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * New upstream release
    - Make items hide show properly with viewports; LP: #424689.
  * Bump up Standards-Version to 3.8.3; no change needed.
  * Wrap build-deps and deps to get cleaner diffs.
