My Gnome Workspaces Setup


I got used to using virtual desktops / workspaces on i3wm and prefer a technique where I keep certain apps in certain locations. I can quickly switch to the right workspace by using Super+# where # is 0-9. Moving a window to the correct workspace is Shift+Super+#. Here's a quick overview of how I configure that.


In settings, set workspaces to fixed number at 10

Install Gnome Widgets related to Workspaces: Auto Move Windows, Disable Workspace Switch Animation


Unset Super+# from launching apps


for i in {1..10}; do gsettings set "org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock" "app-hotkey-$i" "[]"; done

Rebind Super+# & Shift+Super+#


for i in {1..9}; do gsettings set "org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings" "switch-to-workspace-$i" "['<Super>$i']"; done
for i in {1..9}; do gsettings set "org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings" "move-to-workspace-$i" "['<Super><Shift>$i']"; done
gsettings set "org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings" "switch-to-workspace-10" "['<Super>0']"
gsettings set "org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings" "move-to-workspace-10" "['<Super><Shift>0']"
