I decided today to use workspaces on Ubuntu 20.04. I see that every workspace I create is named:
Workspace 2, etc.
Is there a way to rename that to meaningful names such as
P.S: Searching on Google doesn’t return any useful results.
In a default Ubuntu installation, workspace names have little visibility, and there is no user exposed way to rename them. Still, they can be renamed using the
gsettings command, e.g:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences workspace-names "['Browser', 'Terminal', 'Word', 'Games','Settings']"
or using dconf editor.
To reset to the default, issue the command:
gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences workspace-names
Extensions may expose the setting. The official Gnome Shell extension Workspace Indicator by fmuellner (part of Classical Gnome) exposes an option to rename the workspaces.
