Multi monitors

Asked by Andrey Alfaro Alvarado on 2012-07-30

Hi I really love gala.

I've been using gala and i love every thing but when i use multi monitors i got some problems:

1st the desktop switch doesn't appear on the second monitor.
2nd plank and winpanel only appear on one monitor.

I know that there is a function for use the monitor like just one, but i want to have 2 monitors and every one like a separate monitor but with gala, plank and wingpanel in my case is more usefull.

Will gala include some feature like this?
or how can i set gala to use the 2 monitors correctly?

Right now, everything is set around the primary monitor. I don't think we'll provide a two monitor solution for luna, but if there's enough time we maybe end up having a system that will spawn at least the workspace switcher at the current monitor.
Wingpanel and plank got their own settings.

Thanks Tom Beckmann, that solved my question.
