Add more workspace in Fedora 13


i created a vmware image for fedora 13. However, it has only 2 workspaces.
Is there a way to create more workspace? I couldn't find any option from the Preference menu

I am going to assume you are using GNOME. If when you right click on the workspaces and goto the preference menu you don't see an option to add more workspaces you can use GNOME configuration editor. Type gconf-editor into the terminal and it should come up. Navigate to desktop - gnome - applications - window_manager. In the right of the window you should see number_of_workspaces. Right click to edit it.

Installation of gconf-editor seems to be successful. However, when i run it, it does not have any option to add workspaces. I notice that some errors occur when i start the gconf-editor. Not sure what they are.

Code:
[root@localhost perf]# gconf-editor

If you right-click the workspace switcher and choose preferences, you can adjust rows and columns from there.

Question Add more workspace in Fedora 13

I am running Fedora 13 and would like to define more workspace. Currently I have only one.
I tried right click on the workspaces but don't see a preference menu; tried GNOME configuration editor but typing gconf-editor on terminal results an error.
What do I miss? Is there any software I need to install first?
I find mulitple workspace on Ubuntu a useful feature. I would like to add that to my Fedora desktop.
