This feature was added in version 2.6 of Cinnamon. You can add another panel on your second monitor by right clicking your current panel, clicking
Modify panel... and then
You'll see a message asking you to select where to put the new panel, which you can add where you want it on your second monitor. You can mirror the panel configuration on the other monitor by copying and pasting from your main monitor. Once you do that, any application you have open on the second monitor will have its window on the second monitor's panel.
If you're unsure which version of Cinnamon you have installed, this terminal command will tell you:
If your version is lower than 2.6, you'll have to update to a newer version of Mint.
Alternatively if you're using Mint 17.1, though I wouldn't recommend this as it might cause problems, you can update Cinnamon to 2.6 without updating your version of Mint by using these steps:
- Check the box for
Unstable packages (romeo)
Update the cache
Refresh and then
