Slideshow Screensaver Mate 19.1

In past Mate editions a photo slideshow for screensaver option was offered. This appears to be missing in 19.1.
Is it in the build somewhere, or is there an app for that, I can install? Thanks

Re: View Opened Apps In Panel

No-
I used command mate-panel --reset before to restore this, when I lost it somehow before.
An open app -Firefox, Thunderbird, etc should be in the panel how do I get an opened app to be in the panel ( tray)?

I'm not wishing to add a widget, but have open apps displayed .

Re: Change Color Of Top Panel

By top panel, I mean the gray area when using Firefox, etc. I do use what you suggested for the bottom panel, The top , this does not allow "properties" with a right click. I wish to have color. How do I achieve this? Thanks

[SOLVED] Restore Desktop Panel After Update

Is there a way to undo an update?
After the last update to Mate Mint 17 , I have lost the use of the desktop tray. How can I fix this?

I posted in another thread , maybe the terminal displays shown will be a start?

[SOLVED ] Does Chromecast Similcast?

I understand Chromecast can be used with Linux. Can Chromecast similcast?
Example- Mint gets Utube from wifi router, then using Chromecast, the content is sent to a Tv for display.

Would this be possible?
