OWS: OSD Workspace Switcher
OWS is a simple applet for the GNOME desktop that shows
workspace name by means of OSD when the user change from one to
other. This may occur pressing "Control" + "Alt" + "side arrows"
or clicking in the workspace pager.
OWS may be a complete replacement to the standard Workspace
Switcher because all its features are supported.
The OWS source is maintained in a subversion repository (with
svn-buildpackage). You can download it with this command:
$ svn co https://arco.inf-cr.uclm.es/svn/public/prj/ows
If you're a Debian user (Ubuntu, etc. also) then you can install
package directly from standard distro repositories.
# apt-get install ows
