    ok, how the heck to i set it up to use the arrow keys to switch between spaces?

    I've tried all the options, and they just don't work.

    does anybody have this problem?

    Are you using the 'control' key + the arrow?

    Edit: I'm getting old and slow

    Do you show multiple spaces like mine?
    More than 1 space?

    Hmmmmm, did it just stop working?
    Has it ever worked for you?

    Have you tried the usual?
    Restart
    Repair permissions
