I installed the xbuntu desktop in hope of speeding up my aging laptop
success
what was less successful was trying to get the panel the way I liked it in ubuntu
I removed the lower panel hopeing to reinstall the desktop feature one of my favourite parts of ubuntu but when I click add to panel the feature is not on the list
how do I get the desktop feature back as an option on the panel?

Right-click on a blank part of the panel you have (if you have no blank spot, r-click on a hide button) In the drop down menu select "add to panel", then pull the toggle on the right of the next menu down to the very bottom and the work place switcher should be there.

in unbuntu I think your instruction is valid
in xubuntu the option is not there

Hi,

Try "Pager" which may be what you're looking for.

My regards
