Ubuntu – Show all windows in 12.04


I have install new Ubuntu 12.04 (clear install) but I have this issue with windows – when I wanted all windows to by shown, I just put cursor in left bottom corner as I set it up, but now, even though I set it up again in Compiz manager -> Scale, it shows me windows only from current workspace. Any idea?

  • The ability of the scale plugin to show either all windows or all windows of a window group has been limited to the current workspace only. This was done thru changes to the scale plugin & what happens when left clicking on a launcher icon in unity itself.

    As mentioned by czifro you can try a different switcher plugin or the alt-tab switcher in unity will allow all windows of a group by setting the bias in the unity plugin > switcher options.

    The scale plugin, at least thru the current source, can be patched & built to return the ability to pull from all workspaces, whether all windows or all windows of a window group. compiz will be updated in the near future in 12.04, patching should remain viable, time will tell.
