Question problems enabling more than two desktops on backtrack 4 r2

When I try to set my number of desktops to "4" on the KDE control module, it reverts back to having only two. I downloaded and installed the current ATI driver ( and everything works as it should with compiz, except for desktop cube, because I only have two desktops. I never had a problem while running Ubuntu, just with backtrack 4 r2. By the way, I have it installed and not running on a virtual box. Any help would be appreciated.

You have to use the compiz control panel to increase the desktops.

See here.
