[Bug 1892613] Re: Left Panel on multi-monitor setup causes issues with window placement on display left of primary


Known issue upstream


It's actually an xorg issue.

The window manager is correctly blocking where space reservation has
been made (the panel)

The workaround is to use auto hide or intelligent hide which does not
reserve space on the screen

  Left Panel on multi-monitor setup causes issues with window placement
  on display left of primary

Status in budgie-desktop package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Symptom:  With a Budgie panel position set to "Left" on the "primary"
  display, and another display that is arranged to the left of that
  primary display, dragging windows around the left display is
  impossible, as many parts of the display seem to be blocked.  This
  doesn't happen if you move the position the same panel to the right,
  for a display to the right of the primary display, or top/bottom.

  Steps to reproduce:

  1) You have a multi-monitor setup, where there is at least one display
  to the left of the "primary" screen. I reproduced this with any
  combination of 2-4 screens, and on both 4k and 1080 resolutions.

  2) You add a second panel and change it's position to "Left".

  3) Drag any window into the left display and attempt to move it around
  the display.

  I should mention my Budgie install is over the top of a standard
  Ubuntu 20.04 with apt install ubuntu-budgie-desktop.  It's showing
  version 10.5.1.
