Question Panel position


How do I move the panel(taskbar) in Mint Cinnamon to the left of my screen instead of just top and bottom?

I'm running Mint 17 Cinnamon and, from the control panel, it looks like there are only two positions for the panel; top and bottom. Maybe you need to try a different windows manager?

Play Bonny!

Long ago this was addressed in the MINT forums and the conclusions were that only top/bottom were the available options. I didn't feel the need to point it out because I partially figured it would have been addressed in some form 2-3 years later. Doesn't appear this way. If you check the MINT forums you'll see old reports that the taskbar can only move top/bottom and several persons asking if it could also be left/right, but the responses just say no go on that.

it's quite possible to disable cinnamon panel and install some other panel that CAN do vertical (most can, actually: lxpanel, xfce4-panel, tint2...).

ps:
the window manager has nothing to do with it. at least not in this case.
