In past Mate editions a photo slideshow for screensaver option was offered. This appears to be missing in 19.1.

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 .
