[SOLVED] Can I move the panel to the top?

Post by freshtamatic » Tue Oct 09, 2018 4:53 pm

I'm using LM Cinnamon, and it would suite me better if the panel was on top of the screen. Is there a way to do that?

There sure is!
Rightclick an empty space on the panel, choose Modify Panel, then choose Move Panel. Drag the panel to the top.

Thanks Moem. is the reply.
Yeah move a panel, add a panel, add to / remove from a panel, resize a panel (I usually shrink mine a bit) all pretty easy. At least after you've done it once.
Linux mint is pretty awesome.

LOL, I just noticed the little Apple icon on the top left, this is on a Mac not Linux Mint right?

Nope that's Cinnamon. There are Mac like docks and themes out there.

In general for themes -

1) Check out the the Themes settings app 'Add/Remove' tab for third party themes themes hosted on Cinnamon Spices - https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/themes/

2) Run a search for 'theme' in Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager. For icon themes also search 'icon'

3) Checkout opendesktop - https://www.opendesktop.org/ - there's a huge amount of stuff on here so be prepared to hunt around for the decent stuff - a lot is old abandoned / poor quality.

4) Search for themes on Github.

For Max / OSX styles like in that screenshot I'm not sure exactly what the post author has used - he only said

But I'm aware of a few Mac / OSX themes -

https://github.com/paullinuxthemer/McOS ... on-Edition

https://github.com/vinceliuice/Sierra-gtk-theme

https://github.com/B00merang-Project/macOS

https://github.com/B00merang-Project/macOS-Dark

The Dock is probably plank - you'll find it in Software Manager - plank itself is themeable. I don't use so don't know the details but this post should get you started - viewtopic.php?f=47&t=279069

There are also other docks - e.g. cairo-dock - also in software manager.
