    Thanks – this did the trick. But first, I had to

    – go to Ubuntu Software Center
    – install CompizConfig Settings Manager
    – go to Applications > System Tools > Preferences > CompizConfig Settings Manager

    before I could, as suggested above, go to Windows Management and tick the box for Application Switcher.

    I have a 12.04 installation that was upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04 to 11.10 to 12.04 using the update manager and then enabling Gnome Classic.

    I had the same problem of alt+tab not working even though my
    System Settings—–> Keyboard——–> Shortcuts:———–> Navigation
    setting said Alt+Tab would Switch Applications.

    But I tried setting it to alt+super+tab and that worked fine.

    I then just for experiment tried setting it back to alt+tab again and it then worked!

    Someone else want to try this and see if this is a consistent work-around?

    Worked for me:

    Applications–> System Tools –> System Settings

    Keyboard––—> Shortcuts:–––—> Navigation

    Then highlight “switch applications” & press
    the and keys

    Select a shortcut & press to disable the selected shortcut

    I also enabled “Move to workplace left”, assigning it to:

    Similarily for “Move to Workplace right”
