Ok, I've just upgraded to Gnome 3, very smoothly I must say, and I think
I like it, after a couple of hours operating on my production machine.
Now, just noticed my first operating problem. I must run a Windows cad
application in VirtualBox. On Gnome 3 + Compiz, I just used to place
this on another desktop at fullscreen, and just dragged the mouse to the
screen edge and let Compiz switch to the other desktop when I needed to.
That was one of the many ways Compiz had to switch desktops but this was
the one I was used to.
With Gnome 3, to start, I don't know how to switch to another desktop if
I am in VirtualBox fullscreen. Windows absorbs the Windows key, of
course, which is also the Gnome 3 hot key, and the top left screen
corner is occupied by VB. Does anyone know?
Now, if I switch VirtualBox out of fullscreen to windowed or seamless
mode, then of course I can switch the desktop but then the cad program
stops displaying it's screen which probably uses 3D; Windows still
This doesn't happen under Gnome 2 or XFCE. I tried to play with
combinations of VB settings of 2D and 3D pass-through to no avail.
