Gnome workspace options?


Ok, so I've looked everywhere for this and I don't know if it's possible but here we go.

Is there any way that the workspace switcher can be configured to not only hide the windows but also the minimized versions of those windows like KDE does when you switch workspaces? I'd like it to almost be like a completely separate desktop so that I can have a completely uncluttered desktop at the click of a button.

What version of Gnome are you using because on my Gentoo box, I have version 2.8.0 and on Ubuntu I have 2.12.0 and both act the same way, minimized windows are not shown in anothers virtual desktop. I suppose it is possible that your WM is causing this odd behavior.

I'm just wondering if perhaps you are stuck with viewports as opposed to work spaces.

I can't tell you what version of Gnome I have because I don't have the computer here in front of me. It's a fairly new version of Gnome because it's what ever comes with SuSE 9.3

SuSE 9.3 comes with 2.10.0. Are you positive you are still using the default WM Metacity in Gnome?

Yup. I'm sure I'm using Metacity. I see it load in the splash screen every time I boot. I'm pretty sure that Metacity is all that SuSE comes with too.
