• Dual monitor with dual panel and windows task list


    I recently switched from Manjaro with Cinnamon. WIth Manjaro I was able to add a second panel to my second monitor and then add a second windows task list to that panel. IN doing so, the panel would show only the windows that were opened on the respective monitor.

    However, in Antergos, after adding the second panel to the second monitor, I cannot seem to get a second windows task list. It seems to only allow me on windows task list for all panels.

    What am I missing?

    Best regards

  • Hi,

    The window list applet doesnt work like that. Basically it will list the windows that are positioned on the same monitor as the panel itself. Does that make sense? Not sure how to explain it better but I can try if needed 😉

  • Sorry for the late reply. What you said lots.0.logs is basically what I said. The issue was when I added the second panel, it would not let me add a second windows list applet to the panel.

    I restarted and tried again: it worked.
