Sorry, this isn't a support mailing list. You can find a support mailing
list for Ubuntu here:
I'm not sure what happened to the workspace (desktop) names - the option
to change them was probably removed because it's not a very commonly
You may still be able to change the names of workspaces by doing the
1. Press Alt+F2. A "Run Application" window appears.
2. Type "gconf-editor" (without quotes) into the box and click Run.
3. The Configuration Editor will open. Use the sidebar on the left
to navigate to /apps/metacity/workspace_names
4. In the main part of the window, change the names of the
workspaces by double-clicking the "Value" column next to each
workspace, e.g. to name your 2nd workspace, double-click the
blank space next to "name_2".
5. Press Enter to finish editing, and close the Configuration
Editor window. The change should be instant.
I'm not sure if these workspaces will have visible names any more, but
these are the options that would probably need to be changed if they do.
