Panel Question (SOLVED)
« on: June 29, 2019, 02:53:31 pm »
A simple question with a simple answer hopefully.

I just want to move the main panel including all it's items, to be at the top of the screen. Unlike any added panels which can be moved easily, the standard panel doesn't seem to be able to be moved in the same way. Is there an easy way to do this please?

Also just an observation assuming I'm doing it right, but if I add  Action Buttons to the panel, the Lock Screen and Switch User work. Hibernate, Shutdown and Restart are greyed out and the Log Out buttons (2 off?) give a "Failed to run action.......etc window to appear. It may be just with my setup but I thought I ought to mention it in passing.

Thanks.

Right-click an empty space on the panel and select

Panel > Panel Preferences

Remove the tick from "Lock Panel"

Now grab the panel at the extreme left or right end .. and drag it to the top of the screen.

Re-tick the "Lock Panel" preference.

Close the Panel Preferences.



The "Action Buttons" panel plugin doesn't work in Peppermint because it relies on the Xfce session manager but we use the LXDE session manager because it's lighter .. pretty much all other panel plugins work, just not that one.

There is a kinda workaround .. just add a launcher to the panel that calls "peppermint-logout"
