hrmmmm ... I see ... "clunky" <eyebrow waggles to the other readers>

I don't guess you spent much time setting it up or exploring what it can 
do. 'Tis a pity.

I have 6 workspaces X dual monitors = 12 workspaces that within I can 
just move my mouse to a screen edge, in any direction, and automagically 
be in the adjoining work space. Try THAT with Gnome. KDE does that too, 
but XFCE has a lot less overhead.

I have documents I wish to type into, so I don't want to type AT my 
desktop too, in order to get things rolling. Ric

My father, Victor Moore (Vic) used to say:

..the Sin of Ignorance, and the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
