I know this is probably a Gnome thing but is there a way to have both monitors switch to another desktop instead of just the main display? I know there is an extension for Gnome that allows this but I hesitate to try to install extensions on Pantheon. I installed Pantheon Tweaks but it dont like just installing ppa's tp solve things.

  • That worked! Thank you! But will it stay persistent through a reboot or login? Sep 10 at 9:39
  • Yes, the setting will persist. Be sure to use comments rather than answers when asking follow-up questions 😉

I believe you can do this via Terminal with the following command:

gsettings set org.gnome.mutter workspaces-only-on-primary false

I cannot test this right now (the work machines are stock Ubuntu), but this generally the solution with Gnome-based desktops.
