Hi,

I installed the dual boot version of UberStudent, which installed perfectly fine. I'm having some problems with using the MATE environment. First, I chose MATE over XFCE cause it allowed me to change my monitor settings to use my dual monitors separately. Now, I'm having trouble with changing the MATE panel on my monitor, the tool bar goes to my secondary (smaller) monitor. I started to configure panels, but when I was done I realized that i somehow set up the panels from XFCE. I can't find the MATE panel anywhere in the settings.

I'm also having trouble mounting my other partition that I use to store my documents. GParted shows that sdb3 is an extended drive and sdb5 is under that, which is ntfs. I'm guessing it has to do with sdb3 being labeled as an extended file system.

Thanks

To reach the mate-panel settings, just right-click anywhere on any panel in mate. There's a fallback to prevent you from deleting all panels, so that option should be available.

Drives in mate are configured to automatically mount by caja, so there shouldn't be a problem; so, let's get a look at your drive's layout and such. Press F1 on your keyboard or otherwise open a terminal and paste in and run this:

Code:
sudo parted -l


Then, paste the result here.

Also, you might be interested to try setting up dual monitor support in XFCE.

I got that specific partition to show up. Somehow, clicking the icon on top allowed me to mount it but it wasn't showing up along with the other drives. I'm working on making the XFCE not mirrored now. I'll let you know how that goes :)

Edit: That work around for the dual monitors in XFCE works perfect :) but setting it was a bit confusing but the 'xfce4-display-settings -m' command made it much easier
