Show desktop button

Post by SpeedyWheels222 » Tue Jul 17, 2018 6:27 am

Is there any way to move this to the bottom right hand corner, like it is on windows? I was able to do it in Cinnamon but it gets stuck in Mate next to where all of the connection details are.

You would need to unlock the other elements to be able to move it there. However, moving things manually along the MATE panel is notoriously error prone, therefore I suggest you do it from the terminal like this:

Code: Select all

dconf write /org/mate/panel/objects/show-desktop/position 0
dconf write /org/mate/panel/objects/show-desktop/panel-right-stick true
This is assuming you're still using the original show desktop applet that your profile was created with and not one you added yourself.

After that either log out and back in or press Alt+F2 and reload the panel with this command: mate-panel --replace.
