Hi,

When I connect external monitor (thru VGA or DVI) to my laptop to extend screen, I'd like to make StretchDog behave like BionicDog.

In BionicDog, menu appears on both monitors. Whether I put external monitor on left or right side of laptop.
I can start app on any side I want... 👍

In StretchDog, menu only appear on left monitor. So, when external monitor is on left of laptop, no menu on laptop.
And somehow, conky always appears on the 'primary' monitor (which is what I want).
I was expecting, at least menu would also appear on primary if not both...but...🙁

I use same commands in both Dogs.
Code:
xrandr --output LVDS-0 --primary
xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode 1366x768 --rate 59.79 --right-of LVDS-0


Any idea how I can achieve that?

Note - regardless of which 'Stretch' used, I have tried all of them (Starter Kit, openbox, jwm, fulldog, obdog, xfce4, mate, StretchDog). They all drive me nuts when it comes to multi monitors...Only BionicDog is useable for me Smile

Thanks.
