Workspace on multiple monitors in Gnome 3

A multiple monitor setup is crutial for increasing the productivity. Although, Gnome 3 decided that only one screen should change workspace. You must be wondering if there is a setting to override this. Yes there's one!

Installing dconf-editor

sudo apt-get install dconf-editor -y

Open dconf-editor

Alright, press the super key and type in dconf. The application will ask you to be careful. Proceed by clicking on the I'll be careful button.

Overriding the default setting

  1. In dconf-editor, navigate to the following path: /org/gnome/shell/overrides
  2. Change the setting "workspace-only-on-primary" from on to off.
  3. That's it, no restart required. Use the Ctrl + Alt + top/bottom arrow to change your workspaces.
