I have Kubuntu 7.10 running and i have recently installed compiz fuzion
af the the installation completed i had 8 desktops instead of my specified 4, and when i went into configure desktop it said i still only had 4, but when i looked down at my taskbar it showed that i had 8, can anyone tell me how to fix this, or is it already supposed 2 do that?
also i would like to get my desktop cube running but I am not sure how 2 do that at the moment.,,,,,,,,,,,thkx
Press Alt+F2 and type "dcop kicker kicker restart". That should fix the silly desktop issue.
Its to do with the applet that displays the desktops (pager) on your task panel (kicker) not understanding that you've changed window managers, or more precisely that the new one treats multiple desktops differently to the old one.
