The Workspace Switcher 2.30.2 (to switch between virtual desktops)
provided in oi_151a9 differs from the included help documentation.
The help documentation says that the number of columns can be adjusted
but the preferences documentation only allows adjusting the number of
rows. The help documentation also says that each virtual desktop can
be named. If I increase the number of rows, the number of virtual
desktops does not increase (there are four), but space is allocated
for the extra row in the switcher.
In Solaris 10, I enjoy the ability to create as many virtual desktops
as I like (I am using 9) and the ability to name those desktops so
that each desktop can be used to support a named activity. The
switcher in OI 151a9 does not provide a way to name each virtual
Does the Workspace Switcher Preferences dialog actually reflect what
the Workspace Switcher is capable of doing? Is this simplistic
preferences dialog some sort of bug? Is there a way to make the OI
desktop more usable by replacing/bypassing this preferences dialog?
