I have come back to the MATE desktop after a few years (since GNOME ditched it and it was too much for me at the time to keep everything in GNOME2/Mate), and things have certainly improved a lot (even compared to GNOME2).
Like many people, I only use it on a laptop now. I have kept much the traditional MATE appearance, including having the applet/icons aligned on the right side of the top panel next to the default clock. I have aligned them to my liking with the laptop screen and locked them, however they seem to jump all over the place when I connect to an external monitor (at work, and keeping the lid closed) that allows a higher resolution.
I see from previous posts as old as 6-7 years such as this one:
that I am not alone, however the issue is seem to be brushed aside and closed without resolved multiple times.
Does anyone know of a workaround (aside of not having anything there) for this issue?
Thanks in advance
