I’m using Ubuntu MATE 16.04, with Compiz turned on from MATE Tweak. I was pleased to discover that I can have more than one desktop, and I can change the way they’re laid out, using CompizConfig Settings Manager (
ccsm) and setting the Desktop SIze under General Options. (Technically, these aren’t multiple desktops, they’re multiple viewports on one huge desktop.) The Workspace Switcher widget in my panel respects this layout and shows them correctly, which is great.
However, when using Marco, I’m able to give names to my different desktops, and those names show up both in the Workspace Switcher, and in the “Move to another workspace” submenu from right-clicking on a window title bar. These names don’t seem to be the same thing under Compiz. Moving a window to a different workspace works correctly, but these workspaces have names “Workspace 1”, “Workspace 2”, and so on. How can I rename them? CCSM has a “Workspace Naming” section, but changing the names in here seems to have no effect on the names of the viewports and the “Move to another workspace” menu (indeed, I have five viewports configured in a vertical stack, but the “Workspace Naming” section in CCSM only lists four).
Is there any way to name the workspaces under Compiz?
