How to switch workspaces in Fluxbox via keyboard shortcuts?


Hi,

I can't figure out how to switch between workspaces using a keyboard shortcut in Fluxbox or even applications in the same workspace?

Also I would appreciate it if someone tell me how I can add more workspaces to my panel. I assume the default is 4.

Thank you

Alt+F1-4 will switch workspaces.

Alt+Tab *should* cycle through open application windows.

Just a note, I regularly use the mouse wheel to cycle through workspaces. It's the bomb.

to add a workspace, open fluxbox menu, then fluxbox-menu -> Workspace list -> New workspace

Thank you for your prompt response. I realized that I can add more shortcuts to ~/.fluxblox/keys and Alt+F1... works great but I don't know why Alt+Tab doesn't work! Your wheel hint works too.

What is Mod1 in keys file anyway? An Alt key?
