usage

Simply unzip the release archive and start VirtualDesktops-HotKeysOpenGL.exe. If you wish to compile the source, you either need to get [ upx ] and place it in the top folder of the source code or you need to comment the line calling upx.exe (in Makefile-all-after.mak).

to switch desktops, press CTRL + ALT + Fn, where n is the number of the desktop you wish to switch to.

parameters

VirtualDesktops-HotKeysGL.exe [--desktops=n]

n is the number of virtual desktops requested. can't be higher than 8 and the default value is 4.

notes / todo

before the first switch from a desktop, no screenshot for that desktop is available, therefor the texture for that desktop is black. after switching away from that desktop, a screenshot is taken and the texture will be available.
