    How I can use VirtueDesktops in my computer (Mac OS X 10.5.8)

    I could not know how i can
    If I enable motion sensor switching, desktops will move even if i do not touch it ??

    And I want to ask about a program that you can see what happened in your computer when you are away

    VirtueDesktops is meant for pre 10.5.x Mac OS X computers (10.3 or 10.4), as Leopard has Spaces as a virtual desktop manager.
    Look into System Preferences > Exposé & Spaces.

    It may not be as configurable as VirtueDesktops, but it does the trick.

    As you might have seen on the official homepage of the developer, s/he is not making a 10.5.x release.

    Also how do you wanna view what happened on your Mac while you were away? In pictures, as video, as a log?

    There is an application that makes timed screenshots (from 1 second onwards):

    Ah I can't believe I didn't mention SpaceSuite earlier...great program. Thanks for the reminder!

    OP: It is very sad that VirtueDesktops got replaced by Spaces. I have very fond memories of it in Tiger.

    Thanks guys ..


    but I am surprised, why VirtueDesktops doesn't work with 10.5
    I think it is better than spaces

    It is better than Spaces, but most of the functionality overlaps. That's why the dev decided not to devote any more time to it.

    the dev of VirtueDesktops has made Hyperspaces which is an enhancement on Spaces.
