Ubuntu 11.04 and workspaces

A little bit difficult to find, so this is more of a “note to self”.

How to change number of workspaces in Ubuntu:
1) Open a Terminal.
2) To change the number of rows, type the following command, changing
the final number to the number you wish. Press Enter.
gconftool-2 –type=int –set /apps/compiz-1/general/screen0/options/vsize 2
3) To change the number of columns, type the following command,
changing the final number to the number you wish. Press Enter.
gconftool-2 –type=int –set /apps/compiz-1/general/screen0/options/hsize 2

Voila. Why can’t this be changed through some gui?
