View Full Version : [ubuntu] TwinView Notification Area ( Dual Monitor )
October 17th, 2009, 12:58 AM
I've found a thread discussing this problem from 2008 which was never solved. It is archived and I cannot reply so I am starting a new thread. I am running Jaunty with Twin View. I would like to have a notification area on both screens. Let me refine that... I would like to have a notification area in both screen that display the SAME THING. Has any one figured out a way to do this? It would be great to not have to turn on the other monitor to see the notification area when I only want to use the one. Thanks!

Surely someone out there knows how to do this?

Unfortunately there is no way of doing this without modifying the source code yourself. I was able to get notify-osd working without a gnome-panel and focus follow, though.
That being said, you might want to look at focus-follow (key in gconf, google it). While it doesn't display the notice on both monitors, it WILL display the notice on the monitor that currently has the focused window.
