View Full Version : [ubuntu] Laptop with external vertical monitor -- getting the workspace switcher to work bette

Hi All,

Santa Claus recently gave me a nice new vertical monitor to plug into my laptop when I'm working from home. It works well, but I've got a couple of minor problems with it that I'd like to fix. See screenshot below.

The first problem is that I can't see the icons for the programs in the workspace switcher.

The second (related) problem is that the system "thinks" that there is workspace in the lower-left-hand corner, "below" the laptop monitor. THis is annoying because sometimes the mouse, a window, or an icon can "get lost" down there.

I'd like to fix these things, but I don't know where to begin.

Any tips really appreciated.
