    [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

    Otherwise, peruse through there.

    And you could check out these threads to see about changing the behaviors
