negative on both of those john. Perhaps i'm not being clear on exactly what my issue is. In a windows/photoshop environment, all tools and images that the program is using falls under one toolbar "slot", i.e. photoshop. I guess, the functionality i'm looking for (and, as i look at my toolbar now, and see, 4 file browsers, some gimp windows, and various other things, would be for all tabs started or opened by a given program, to all fall under one tab. So instead of having a toolbar that looks like this

Code:
|Program A window 1||Program A window 2||Program A window 3||Program B Window 1||Program B window 2|Program c||Program D window 1||
i would just have
Code:
 Program A||Program B||Program C

If Im reading your posts right..your issue is that the task bar shows programs from ALL workspaces..Not just the workspace you are on.??
It sounds like a Gnome setting ..Im on debian with Gnome..and If I have Firefox on workspace 1,Gimp on 2,Vlc on 3, and so on...When Im on workspace 1..my taskbar only shows Firefox,,move to workspace 2 taskbar shows only gimp..and so on...
In your pics it just looks like all your programs on each of your workspaces are showing in taskbar..I know theres a option to change it..but not sure where it is..let alone in Ubuntu..which I havent used since 5.7 or so.

hmm, no, that is an idea tho... i really havent "moved into" any other workspaces yet, i've been sticking to one desktop, because i pretty much do everything i do at once.

for some background, this was mainly just a web browsing/im'ing,/fiddling around laptop...

you do know you can drag the open tool window back on to the toolbox
here is a copy of your screen shot see these images
the first one , read the circled text
http://www.imagebam.com/image/a5316229487618
now click AND hold on the paintbrush ( circled area) and drag it to the end of the arrow
http://www.imagebam.com/image/d8d7bb29487731
then click on the "font tool " ( circled "A" )
and drag that tool bar over to where you dragged the first one
http://www.imagebam.com/image/07b21329487947

the "layer, channels " will be a new window from " windows/dockable dialogs " but can also be docked to the main toolbox .Like you just did with the last two .

then from the GIMP " edit / preferences " click on ( the left Payne ) " tool Options "
and put a check in " save tool options on exit"
then from the ( on the left) "window Management" put a check in " Save window positions on exit"

that should do it .

ok, here's an example of a photoshop desktop http://i672.photobucket.com/albums/v...erm3607/ps.png

Now thats 4 different "windows", plus the actual image file all open in the "photoshop" window tab. I think, for me, the biggest problem i'm having with gimp, is that it seems like gimp basically treats the image as one program, and each toolset as a different one, so they all overlap on each other if they're all open...

i guess my only workaround would be to have the picture not at full screen, and the tools in the empty space, but thats still clunky to me.

and although this screen was taken from an apple, the behavior, as i remember it, was the same between apple and windows versions of photoshop
