    [Gnome 3] Using CTRL + UP/DOWN short cuts for switching workspaces


    Hi. Setting CTRL + UP/DOWN has no apparent effect when called. I have used the CTRL + UP/DOWN short cuts in the past, before went over to Unity. I guess newer Gnome 3 related updates must conflict with these short cuts.

    I don't suppose there's a sensible way around this?

    I'm currently using CTRL + ALT + UP/DOWN, but this means I have to use both hands.

    It might seem a little petty, and even lazy, but I do find it much more convenient to be able to use one hand to switch workspaces. To use two hands, I have to put my coffee down first.

    I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 if it makes a difference.

    There are several extensions for Gnome3 that help customize it. Try Windows navigator extension https://extensions.gnome.org/extensi...ndownavigator/

    Otherwise, peruse through there.
