GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 689610
All panels on one screen when using separate x screens
Last modified: 2013-09-08 21:20:48 UTC
I'm trying to use separate x screens on nvidia card with 3 monitors. I'm expecting one top panel + one bottom panel on each screen, but instead i have got all panels on one screen.
Restarting gnome panel (gnome-panel --replace) it will create two extra (blank) panel pairs on same screen, but new applets will be added on first panel pair. Screenshot ilustrating problem can be found here - http://askubuntu.com/questions/177226/duplicated-menu-panel-indicators-and-taskbar
I tried to manualy set screen key (org->gnome->gnome-panel->layout->toplevels->top-panel->screen) on wich screen panel should appear with dconf Editor. But restarting gnome-panel that key will be reseted.

Fix panels in separate x screens
1) Don't set screen to default screen when it exist.
2) Set screen for menu, otherwise menu always appears on first screen.
Jonathan / Josselin, any chance you can commit this?
