Lately i have been doing almost all of my Development at home using Ubuntu.
Things I love:
- Muliple Workspaces (I can get this in windows, but you can’t do multiple backgrounds)
- Visual Studio Code (I love the fact that I can use on any platform)
- A good bash shell
- I have been doing a lot of stuff with AWS, and for the most part Linux is the ami of choice, so i just needed to get use to it.
Here is what i did to improve Number 1.
In order to be able to differentiate the workspaces it is nice to have a different desktop image per workspaces
I am using Ubuntu 16.10.
Here is the documentation i started with
There seemed to be a bunch wrong, for example the i could not find the compiz-fusion-plugins-extra I found that the compiz-plugins package must have changed name.
Here is what i ended up with
Go into the terminal
sudo apt install compiz-plugins compizconfig-settings-manager
Opened up the Compiz Config Manager, and navigated to wallpaper.
Make sure to Enable the plugin “Enable Wallpaper.
Click on add, and add the four backgrounds.
I then searched for Image Loading and enabled jpeg and png.
I rebooted and voila i had 4 different backgrounds.
It was pretty straightforward once i navigated all of the different versions of documentation.
