Gnome-shell dual monitor separate workspaces
# 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
@Tyil

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

@mercutio22

WOW!
This is invaluable.

@mrenvoize

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

@vyruz

Is there any way to have the monitors have separate workspace movement rather than having to be at the same level on both?

"Is there any way to have the monitors have separate workspace movement rather than having to be at the same level on both?"

Yes, I also would like to have that behaviour?

@Frozenfire92

@BuZZ-dEE @vyruz I'm also looking for that functionality, let me know if you come across it
