I'm looking for a way to programmatically create a new desktop and then immediately give it some arbitrary name.

Creating a new desktop is not a problem, but I can't find a way to rename it.

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 with Cinnamon 2.2.16

    I'm using wmctrl -n x with x the wanted number of desktops. – Thibault Sottiaux Jun 24 '15 at 19:35
  • Not a solution for this? Using default Ctrl+Alt+Up and rename is a pain... – nephewtom Nov 19 '17 at 15:13
