Ubuntu 11.04 gnome issues with dual monitor and panel applets


Just upgraded a dual monitor install of ubuntu from 10.10 to 11.04, reverted to ubuntu-classic (gnome desktop), changed to metacity window manager, but the panel applets (clock, window liet, notifications etc..) only run on ONE of the two screens (:0.0 and :0.1), the other screen they always crash when I try to add them to the panel.
how do i get applets to run on BOTH screens at the same time like they used to.

This has nothing to do with the question the OP asked. Start your own thread.

There are a great many differences between Red Hat and Ubuntu. See this for an overview: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sw...LinuxAndFedora
Here are 2 good sites for getting started with Ubuntu:

And for dual booting with Windows7:

This qustion really should be a separate thread though. I just wanted to give you some info since you asked.
