I have recently switched to a brand new 22 inch wide screen so I want to move the bottom panel to the left.
I didn't like how the bottom panel behaved docked to the left side of the screen.
It seems it just wasn't made to be used that way.
Any suggestions on what to use as a replacement?
Please show screenshots if possible.
Thanks! :)

I moved my top panel to the left and my bottom panel I moved to the right. I find it works OK. for me and I get to take full advantage of my 22inch wide screen. By Rt clicking the panel I tweeked the preferences to make the panels as small as possible as well as changing the background colour to compliment my wallpaper.

Hey! thanks for the reply. I tried that but I didn't quite like it.

Is there a way I can get something like this?

It was posted by Mark some time ago and I'm eager to have it. :)

Isn't that something from the Netbook-Remix?

I think so. It looks great. :)
But is it available already?

I don't think that can be docked to the side of the screen.
UPDATE:
Nevermind. it can. Thanks!

try apt-get the netbook-remix ... perhaps you'll find something there, but perhaps it's something totally different, or some dev-snapshot? ;)

I think that's a shot from the 10.10 version.
Or maybe Gnome 3. I saw a similar one somewhere (don't recall where).
