# By default the behavior is:
# Primary monitor work as always and second monitor only have one and fixed workspace
# I.e. you change to next workspace, primary monitor change to this workspace and second monitor remain as is.
# The desired behaviour is:
# Primary monitor and secondary monitor are linked workspace.
# I.e. you change to next workspace, primary monitor change to this workspace and second monitor too.
 
$ gconf-editor
# Look for /desktop/gnome/shell/windows/workspaces_only_on_primary and set to false

You can do this in 1 command using
gsettings set org.gnome.shell.overrides workspaces-only-on-primary false

WOW!
This is invaluable.

Any tips on three minister setup... I'd love to have two screens as one workspace, but the third as a static space.
