    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I just click on the other workspace icon in the bottom panel.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    Are we talking GNOME 3 or MATE/GNOME 2? In GNOME 3 there's a Hot Corner in the upper left of the screen. Move your mouse pointer to it and you'll see other desktops open up on the right side of the screen. For GNOME 2/MATE it's at the bottom right where you can select the desktop you desire. Hope this helps.

    It's MATE, and I DON'T want to click at the bottom right, I want to whack the mouse to the side. Hence this post.

    You could add Compiz and hold down the control and alt key while moving the mouse while holding down the left click. That's about the best I can do for you. You get what you get with different DE's, hence all the different DE's that are out there. If you want to "whack your mouse" then install GNOME 3 and whack away in the upper left corner. Otherwise simply adapt to a new way of doing things and be happy that you have a FREE Op System to play with.
