(Linux Mint) Cinnamon Set Workspace Names

posted on 13 Oct 2012 | linux

In Cinnamon 1.6, workspaces in the expo can have custom names applied. However, these names are not carried through to the window right click menu (Move to another workspace ->).

Workspace names in the right click menu are set by the workspace-names key in org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences.

For example:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences workspace-names "['Entertainment', 'Projects', 'Programming', 'Learning', 'Homework']" 

(Sadly, these names do synchronize with the expo names, so you'll have to set everything twice.)
