I the creator of Desktop Manager needs to seriously consider dusting off Desktop Manager and make it compatiable for OS 10.7 Lion (Lion needs help). I've always considered Desktop Manager as being superior to Apple's Spaces anyway. In its day it was an excellant program, now is the time to bring it out of retirement and update it for 10.7 Lion.

I was just wondering if anything has been resolved here about DM...I just foolishly (I guess) upgraded from OS 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard and on to Mountain Lion....now I have DM but my active Desktop is the only one available besides a screen called dashboard. I can get to my active screen but, only have a grey screen on any of the other Desk tops. I totally miss DM...does anyone have an answer for moi?

Fantastic stuff! Only recently gotten into using Spaces on my newer machines, so was delighted to find something which is compatible with my old PowerBook G4. And what's more, it's actually more impressive than some of the options for newer machines. Loaded with features and options. A brilliant piece of work.

I downloaded the program and tried opening it. I did this several times and I could never get it to open. I did this several times with no luck! I have a brand new 27' iMac OS X (3months old)...why isn't it working? Any suggestions? Once fixed I will increase my rating, but I can't really rate it without it working first, Thanks!

I have been using Desktop Manager (for PPC-- 0.5.3) successfully (I LOVE IT!) with Tiger for many months. However, I recently updated the Mac Software (to Java release 8, Security-update-2009-001, Safari 3.2.1, and Quicktime 7.6) and suddenly I am having the same problems that others have reported: pager and window name only showing in Desktop where DM was launched and not being able to move applications to other windows. It seems like the bugs in DM 0.5.4 have been mimicked by these "upgrades". Any ideas? Might this help debug these problems?

I've a Macbook and an eMac. I use Spaces on my Macbook and was looking for a similar app for my eMac. All I need is the option to allocate the main menu to the middle mouse button (like Spaces). Click the middle button, choose a desktop and that's it! Same problem here as in VirtueDesktops. Doesn't exist in this app either.

This is a terrible program for Leopard. It works so well with Tiger, but in Leopard, you can't switch applications between windows. A total failure.

I used Desktop Manager on OS 10.4 (for PPC) and LOVED it. When I upgraded to Leopard I was very disappointed with "Spaces" (it was hard to stay on the desktop you wanted to be on--apps kept trying to return to the desktop they'd been opened on, if you toggled between apps on your desktop you were suddenly back on another desktop, etc.) so I disabled it and installed Desktop Manager--but found that it had adopted the same functions as Spaces. I believe I was using 0.5.3 (I'm stuck on a PPC) so I don't know if 0.5.4r1 has overcome whatever it is that makes Spaces so unhelpful.

Desktop Manageris a good product. Here is a list of the features that need to be added to make it even better. 1 . The ability to set a different background imge for each desktop. 2. Prefences /Desktop Pager/Location Please add an option of Top Center 3. Prefences /Name Display/ Position .Please add an option of Top Center.

I just downloaded version 0.5.4r1 onto my new macbookb pro and it works alright... but the desktop name only appears on the desktop which desktop manager was launched from AND I can't move a window from one desktop to another via a hotkey (i've changed the hotkey to a number of different combinations). Has anyone else had this problem?

The only issue that I have with this release is that there was no PPC build supplied. The PPC systems are not going to be going away any time soon so shouldn't updates be ported to both platforms until the PPCs are no longer mainstream? I'd like to see the PPC have the same benefits as the intel platform until the PPC is no longer a viable platform to use. Seems like this is starting to become a trend with other development as well and people are not considering that a number of the G4 and G5 systems purchased in the last year are no where near end of life by any means. Boo for intel platform getting all the attention.

I'm a Desktop Manager user since ... years. Great piece of software ! I've a new Mac Intel since March, and unfortunately Desktop Manager (0.5.3) is less stable than on my old Powerbook. The most ennoying bug is that the "Desktop Pager" is displayed on the virtual window on which Desktop Manager has been launched only. And this bug stills exist in the version 0.5.4r1. Please, could you fix this in the next release ? Thanks a lot !

Great application. Keep up the good work! What would really make this perfect is when you could cmd-tab switch from one application window to another, which are located on various desktops. Is this possible?

Just downloaded Desktop Manager and am loving it. Previously used YouControl Desktops but I finding I like the simplicity of this software better. And you can't beat the price! Does anyone know how to contact the developer? I'd like to get my hands on the source code but the version that's on the BerliOS site is 2 years old (0.5.3).

The display bezel shows up on the previous desktop when switching, not the one you are switching to. Also, the display desktop name only seems to work with the most recent desktop you activate the preference on. Using a MacBook C2D with 10.4.9.

i really like desktop manager, preferring it to virtue or other similar apps. however, the same issue comes up in this new intel version as in the past PPC version (written to system.log) /Applications/Desktop Manager.app/Contents/MacOS/Desktop Manager: The function CGSCreateDictionary is obsolete and will be removed in a Tiger update. Unfortunately, this app, or a library it uses, is using this obsolete function, and is thereby contributing to an overall degradation of system performance. i wrote to the developer about this in the PPC version and they said they would address it, but, it's still there. If they fix this, i'll dump virtue and use it.

A nice application with most of the features of its competitors (though a few are absent, if only because this was released in 2005). Less buggy than some of the others, too, but still fraught with a few on 10.4. Usable, but not perfect.

After a couple of years, Desktop Manager continues to be on my (very short) list of OS X startup programs. Even though it hasn't been updated in a long time, it still tops VirtueDesktops (in my opinion) by including the ability to put the desktop pager in the menubar, which is the only place I ever use it. Simple, stable, and potentially very useful for those who work in multiple applications simultaneously and like to have their work organized.

Since I discovered olvwm and its virtual screens with a pager, it was in 90 (yes 1990), I can't work without pager. desktop manager has only one problem, it doesn't foreground the window of the active application (if you choose it with (apple-tab) ) As my first work on any new system i get is to look for a pager, I tried about 6, and it is the best.

For my work-style, this is a must-have utility! Setting up a 4 or 6 desktops, with fast switching and cube effects, then re-assigning the desktop switch hotkey to something really easy like Command-Right_Arrow makes this a super cool, easy to use tool!

Let me tell you a story. In 1998 my college roommate showed me a nifty thing his Linux computer could do--if he moved the cursor to the left or right, a new desktop showed up. He had FOUR desktops in total! This blew my freakin' mind. I couldn't help but think of all that extra screen real estate that could be used for multitasking. Oh how I very much wanted a similar system for my very own. This was in the dark days when I was using other peoples' PCs because I was too poor to have a Mac. I tried programs that affected this ability for Windows, and they all were buggy, crashed, and were generally inefficient. Today I found this program for OS X, and I want to cry for joy. Finally an efficient program that switches desktops that works. I cannot thank the developer enough. This is exactly what I have wanted for seven years.

I really like Desktop Manager. It has quickly become essential for me and due to the following lines in /var/log/asl.log, I have gotten worried that it will stop working after the next upgrade. The lines in question are all of the form: [Time ...] [Facility user] [Sender /Applications/Desktop Manager.app/Contents/MacOS/Desktop Manager] [PID -1] [Message The function FUNCTION is obsolete. Use of this function may cause an overall degradation in the performance of this application, or of the system as a whole.] [Level 3] [UID -2] [GID -2] [Host ...] and the FUNCTIONs in question are: CGSCreateDictionary CGSDictionary CGSDictionaryObjectForKey CGSDictionarySetObjectForKey CGSGetElementForCStringKey CGSReadObjectFromCString CGSSetGStateAttribute Cheers, José

Awesome program! I wouldn't manage without it. Now I'm not that desperate about getting an iMac due to my iBooks small screen. I do however miss the ability to view all desktops at once, in a somewhat "reveal all" way in Exposé. I also miss the ability to flag on/off whether it should be launched at login or not. Other programs have this function, without having to add it through Accounts manually. But those are minor cosmetics. 5 5s.

One amusing problem arose as I fell in love with this stunning little beauty: the message that pops up to tell you the widget is done should say "disply widget?" or "open widget?" Now it says, "is widget open?", and I kept clicking "no," which was the correct answer. Considering I am an English professor it took an embarassingly long time for me to clue into what the problem was. It was a great reminder to me of how dastardly English is for all but the minority of us who were born into it, even for a mind-nature as obvioously brilliant as the one behind this gem. This could be the only widget you'll ever need (or want). The angle rotation is a surpsingly useful feature and really above the call of duty to have developed.

TOO GOOD to be true! Pinch me, I must be dreaming. I'm running dual 19" flatscreens on my G5 and even then never seem to have enough desktop space when running up to ten applications and utilities at once. Even with Expose's help my desktop clutter is a nightmare when working multiple projects across several different programs. This app has to be the greatest single improvement to OS X utility capabilities since Expose was added. Rich, your program is truly awesome from my perspective and needs. Apple needs to reward you handsomely and incorporate your app into Tiger for sure. After 15 minutes of investigating and trying the multitude of features, I went straight to the Donation link and sent you my thanks. This really is unbelievable. And to think I was nearing the point of buying a second graphics card and adding two additional monitors. You just saved me $800+! Anyone using laptops will appreciate this app as the best organizer of your screen contents you will encounter. My 14" iBook is now in heaven! Keep up the great work.

I've used Desktop Manager for months and months and I love it. It's everything I've wanted in a virtual desktop. This is the quintessential OS X application: stable, polished, feature-rich (but not bloated), and just beautiful. They ought to package it with OS X, it's that good. And hey, it's free, and installation (and uninstallation/upgrade) is painless. Give it a try, you'll be happy you did.

I've tried them all and this is the best virtual desktop. It is nice, fast and stable and it is free :-)

Desktop Manager does have ONE major flaw. If you set the SWITCH TRANSITION feature to CUBE and you set your monitor DISPLAY RESOLUTION "at or above 1600 X 1200" the cute little CUBE transition feature fails. How disappointing! It has to be set at 1600 X 1024 or BELOW in order for it to work.

I found a solution to the exposé dimming problem (where you press F10 and the application windows tile but the background doesn't dim out). If you disable "show current name on desktop" then it should fix the problem. It did for me anyway.

One of the greatest freeware OS X apps I have ever seen. This is one of the best features in Linux missing in OS X.

Totally sweet. I hadn't used a Virtual Desktop on any of my Macs in a while, but use them all the time on other *nix based systems and really missed them on my Power Book. I tried CodeTek's newest offering and found it clunky, to say the least. I often had odd crashes when it was running as well, which is not cool. I stumbled across this application when reading some developer postings on cocoadev and decided to give it a try. I am please to say that it's working flawlessly on my 17" Power Book. No crashes, good options (like autohiding the pager) and the transitions rock! (I am using the cube transition right now). I would highly reccomend this app to anyone.

the transitions don't work for me. Other than that this is a great app.

Amazing, works perfectly... I love being able to turn on/off all parts of the application. The transitions are amazing. Expose gets a little weird though, but only if I change desktops while using it, which is never.

FIY: I figured out the problem with the windows changin and effects going away. It happends when I'm using dual monitors and the app restarts. If I have my laptop up and the app has been started in single monitor, then when I hookup to my other one it just kills the effects, but if the app gets restarted(like on a reboot) and the second monitor is hooked up, the app gets all screwy looking.
