Re: LM 12 move top bar to bottom

[Solved] LM 12 move top bar to bottom

I found a Gnome Shell Extension called Reflection that moves the top bar to the bottom. http://ahdiaz.euler.es/reflection-windowlist However I cannot get it to work. Perhaps someone who knows what they are doing can get this to work or modify it to work. I am liking this release a lot. I disabled th...

Installing an important part of Ubuntu Netbook Remix

Here's the quick version: Move the taskbar to the top In the taskbar, replace Window List with Window Picker, which you need to install first. Install maximus, set it up to run at startup. This will give you the feature of UNR which combines the taskbar with the title bar, saving a lot of vertical s...
