Dual monitor setup on Ubuntu 18.04; when I hit activities only the left monitor switches workspaces while the right monitor just keeps whatever is on its screen. Is there a way to make the workspace span both monitors so that when I switch from one workspace to another both monitors switch?
Here is Solutions:
We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.
Had the same problem. Turned out it was super easy to fix.
Install the GNOME Tweaks app. Go to Workspaces and set Display handling to Workspaces span displays. Done!
You can change this behaviour by executing:
gsettings set org.gnome.mutter workspaces-only-on-primary false
You can install
sudo apt install gnome-tweak-tool.
Then go to Workspaces > Display Handling > And choose Workspaces span displays
sudo apt install dconf-editor
Disable the following settings:
dconf write /org/gnome/mutter/workspaces-only-on-primary false dconf write /org/gnome/shell/overrides/workspaces-only-on-primary false
To get up and running all the GNOME extensions config directly in your browser, you only need the following:
Install the gnome-shell-extensions package:
sudo apt install gnome-shell-extensions
Install the host connector:
sudo apt install chrome-gnome-shell
Find and install the Multi Monitos Add-on extension.
In Ubuntu 22.04:
Settings > Multitasking > Multi-Monitor > Workspaces on all displays
Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
