So I jumped on the MATE train v15.10 (I think, it was maybe 14.04) any way I left Mint for many reasons at the time. but the one thing I loved about it was the support for Dual monitors to have Dual panels. You controlled what was going on in the second monitor with the second panel. (i.e. You did’t have to go back to the Main monitor to open up a program back up after you minimized it) When you minimized that prg it stayed in that monitors panel.
On to 15.10 and JOY was found when I stumbled upon the same options in MATE. All was great for a while. I dist-upgraded to 16.04 win no problems evolving. Monitors were still chugging along with dual panels and separate control.
Then 16.04 started getting shaky. Randomly closing apps, loosing audio, locking up other apps and constantly dropping WiFI. Ultimately I lost half my hair, lost 30lbs and didn’t sleep for 3 days just trying to get it back to normal. (I lost the fight and did a kill all reinstall to get to today)
As I am setting up all my little goodies I can’t for the life of me get MY SECOND PANEL TO WORK!!!
I had to use Redmond as a Panel layout (That’s what it was before)
I use Marco (Compton GPU compositor) because I think that’s what I used before. I tried a few other variations but nothing.
I right click on panel and add ( Indicator Applet Appmenu ) Because I think that’s what I used before. Did a reboot and all I get is ( No Indicators )
I tried a few other things before finally before I finally broke down and grabbed a bottle and started typing here to ask.
What am I doing wrong?
Why to I wan’t to drive a bumper car into a group of Clowns?
And why is my eye twitching?
