Description anton 2008-03-05 09:12:19 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.0.2)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

I have 2 monitors and virtual 4 desktops. The desktop grid effect shows only 2 left desktops - the desktop is divided to 4 parts:
- the upper and bottom left corners show desktop 1 and 3 from the 1st monitor,
- the upper right and bottom right corners show desktop 1 and 3 from
the 2nd monitor
- the desktop grid does not show, so I can't switch to the upper right
(desktop 2) and bottom right (desktop 4) desktops with this effect.

Ok, I have found that the other 2 desktops are displayer on the 2nd monitor (which was switched off when I was testing - this is TV and I use only to see movies from comp, not as a part of working space).

Still would like to have an option for "desktop grid" effect - something like "show grid only on 1st monitor" (example - yakuake application allows to choose on which screen it should be opened and it works in my system)

I'd say the main issue of this report has been implemented years ago :-)
