The case to make the Launch bar customizable in Trusty's Unity desktop
[I have mentioned this several times elsewhere.
This is not a request for help.
I just want to draw attention to something that's aberrant for me.
The Unity launch bar can only open on the left edge of the main display.
Why is it that Canonical should give no more flexibility than the option to open it on the left screen edge ?
Why do I gripe about that ?
- I have two screens,; the additional external display must be placed left of my Laptop (no choice there), so the Launch Bar actually open to the left of my left screen far from my field of vision. So I spend 80% of my working time with my head turned to the far left.
Why in the world is the Launch bar not customizable to the mere extent of being on any 3 or 4 sides of any screen ?
I would like to be able to have it on the right edge or bottom edge of the screen in front of me, not to the extreme left of the umpteenth monitor on the left.
I am no dev, but this does not seem overly complex to implement.
A question of priorities for the Ubuntu dev-teams, maybe ?
