Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report and subsequently we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu if you are uncertain if they are bugs.

I will share with you some ways I use to switch between desks.

On the right part of the panel that is downsides, I click the square that is not highlighted in brown. I may click on the middle button of my mice to also flip between desks when the cursor is not over a window, although it may not work on yours. Also, if you have installed the compiz fusion package, you may change the current desk by clicking on one of them ( what I mean, anywhere on the screen except panels, icons, and windows) while pressing both the Ctrl and Alt Keys, and moving your mouse while still pressing all the keys I have mentioned. To change the current desk you may also slide a window either to the right or left side so it takes a place between the two desks.

I apologize if my writing is not very clear, since English is not my mother language.

I hope I have been o help to you.

Can you help with this problem?
