Hello, I'm running Fedora 19 with GNOME 3.8, and I was wondering how to make the top bar with the clock and things display on both monitors. I've Google'd (and DuckDuckGo'd) for a bit now, and I can't find anything. I did find a shell extension, but it said that I wasn't using the right version of GNOME. I guess something changed and that plugin broke compatibility or something.

Does anyone know of a good way of doing this?

Yea there's no way "out of the box" to do this without extensions. You can switch which monitor the panel shows up on by going to the Display panel in control center and dragging the black panel icon from one monitor icon to the other.

The only way I know how to do it is with an extension:

It doesn't seem like the owner updated it to 3.8, but there seems to be a small tutorial within the comments teaching you to do it.
