Window List with Application Grouping on Cinnamon

Postby Zorba on Wed Feb 20, 2013 8:03 pm

I'm a hard working man and I usually run many applications at once. The thing is when I do that Cinnamon panel gets messed up and I lose track of my activities and so have to check all the windows to get the application I'm looking for. Why can't we have something like application grouping with settings to configure the applet look and functionality like DockBarX on Mate? :roll:I found something similar at http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/16 but that applet lacks configurability :(

Use Scale or Expo for quick overviews if you have a lot of windows open
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

Thanks for your quick response. I have disabled "Cinnamon Window List" and enabled "Scale applet" and that did the trick and until we see this issue addressed I think I'll be fine :D :D

With respect to my higher level brothers, that is hardly the same thing as a bar or dock with app grouping.... :?

Agreed, quite surprised this is not an option.
