    @johnbrandonlogan: dude... does it behave like gnome 2 used to with two window lists that only show the windows that are on the screen that the panel is on? If so, THIS NEEDS TO SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY! :) Seriously though. Dual monitor support is my single biggest problem with all the new desktop stuff going on in Ubuntu/Mint. You would think developers would pay more attention to this since they are more likely to have multiple monitors... I would suggest sending a pull request via github: https://github.com/dalcde/CinnamonExtensions

    Works only with a classic panel with autohide disabled. good job!

    @dalcde, I was able to modify your code to do a panel on the second monitor at the bottom. Being that I am modifying your code I would like to either get your permission to add this as a separate extension or merge them into one extension that can be customized. I like the latter idea as its always better to have it all in one. Let me know.

    doesn't work with the autohide-option for me ... after restarting cinnamon, it only showed the (former upper) panel of the two, the one with the applications, and I couldn't acces the cinnamon settings with right clicking there (searched it with my browser then, had to start browser via terminal)

    I LOVE this idea I used this all the time in the old gnome something that was seriously lacking for me. HOWEVER! It won't work for me for some reason. I extracted the the zip into my /home/usernam/.local/share/cinnoman/extensions then went into the cinnoman settings and the 2 panel applet is checked. I restart cinnoman and it is still not there. Any help/suggestions? I would very much appreciate any help with this! Thanks in advance!

    Doesn't seem to work here - Ubuntu 11.10. downloaded from the extensions ppa. Even better if it would do a second panel on my second screen!

    Nice! Not for me, but this was requested (by Craig I think especially) so it's nice to see it here, congrats.

    @billynick The wallpaper was from Mint 10. I copied it to 12. Not sure where you can get it on the web.

    I'd like to, but I don't have a dual monitor setup, so I won't be able to do so.\ P.S. Please don't use CAPS.
