How to add a second panel on Cinnamon?

Post by alecsteven6 »

Hey guys, just started using Linux Mint, I'm liking it a lot so far, but I can't seem to find a way to add a second panel for my second monitor. I tried searching for a way but I couldn't find anything. I read that it used to not be possible to do this but it was said that in 2.2 they were going to add this feature, so I was wondering if it was possible to do now. Thanks.

As far as I can tell this hasn't been implemented. There is a workaround, with these extensions:

and
http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/181

Follow the directions of the developer and it should achieve the desired result.
