I know from here one can activate a visible feedback when switching from one workspace to another in KDE/PLASMA.

This only shows which desktop is being used by means of arrow and numbers. Is there a way to obtain a view of the workspaces in there as in gnome-unity / Ubuntu ?

EDIT: the picture shows what happens when I switch from one workspace to the next. The blue square is the arrival workspace, and the arrow signals the workspace I am moving from. Is it possible to have previews in here?

The Desktop Grid effect should work for you, if I understand your question correctly. It is located here: System Settings - Desktop Effects - All Effects tab.

  • The desktop grid effect is on, but calling it with its shortcut doesn't do anything. Also, I am not sure is related. I am posting pictures in the question to clarify. – Three Diag Jul 23 '15 at 22:06
  • May be you have conflicting key bindings, you can try to change it. – contemplator Jul 24 '15 at 19:26
  • On edit: it is not possible, closest thing you can get is the Desktop Grid effect. You can open a feature request at the bugs.kde.org though. – contemplator Jul 27 '15 at 20:10
