Autoswitching between Virtual Workspaces in KDE or Gnome


Is there a way to make an autoswitching between the virtual workspaces on Fedora Core 8.

I'm using KDE and GNOME as Desktop Manager (there's no preference between them) I'm trying to mount a NMS system with MRTG, RRDTool, Nagios and Cacti and I need to have different workspaces with several open webpages in each one and in some way have an auto-switching or rotating virtual workspaces script or option to check the hole scenario and found if is there something going wrong in my network. Something like a Video-Wall on NOC.

I have a 32" Sony LCD as Monitor with a Linux Fedora Core 8 Box.

Any tip will be helpfull.

First thing I'd suggest would be to upgrade your OS. FC 8 is very old...10 is the latest, and 11 is on it's way.

Second thing is that even KDE3.5 supports virtual desktops...up to 16. You should just have to enable it, and you switch by using the pager applet on the taskbar, or enable edge-of-the-screen desktop switching, and just move your mouse to change desktops...
