[SOLVED] xfce4-panel/workspace with compiz/xfwm4

Its the weird problem:

in compiz (ccsm/general option Desktop Size)
* Horizontal Virtual Size = 4
* Vertical Virtual Size = 1
* Number of Desktops =1

in xfce (setting/workspace)
* No of Workspace=1

# Problem 1
It seem `xfce's no workspace` == `compiz's no of Desktop` is hard linked
compiz ==> xfce4 : no of workspace changes from 1 to 4
xfce4 ==> compiz : no of workspace changes from 4 to 1

# Problem 2
if you change compiz's
* Number of Desktops = 4

The Problem 1 is solved BUT
.. xfce4-panel starts acting weird!
showing all the workspace windows in one panel

Number of Desktops should always be one. Compiz is unique from other window managers in that it uses (GL) viewports instead of desktops. (multiple desktop functionality was never actually implemented). Most DE components only support desktops, not viewports, even though it's part of the EWMH spec.
