[SOLVED] Cinnamon 19.1 New Panel - after installation

Can someone confirm how the revert to old style panel is done (after installation), I presumed that it was "just a click away" but I think that is only during initial installation. Is it just a case of downloading and installing/adding the appropriate old style panel Applet then deleting the new sty...

Re: Anyone else get flickering desktop backgrounds and windows periodically on NVIDIA cards in Cinnamon?

I have experienced this issue three or four times since 18.3. I run dual monitors and it only occurs on the secondary, and especially when Firefox Q is running.

Installing Gnome Recipes in Mint 18.2 Cinnamon

I have tried Gourmet and it is clunky and with bugs and apparently no longer developed, I have also used Krecipes which is close to what I want. There is not much else to try. Is it at all possible to install Gnome Recipes, preferably without having to change DE?

I like Cinnamon 17 a whole lot. However, there are a some KDE programs which I also wish to use. I have tried the KDE spin of Mint, and the DE is not one I would want to use full time. So, I was wondering, a) I know I can install KDE alongside Cinnamon.. I have my /home folder in a separate partitio...

Oh, I get it now. it's hybrid graphics... If you want to use fglrx you will need to disable the HD 4250 card, but I am not sure if it's possible.

Re: Installing Fglrx crashes Cinnamon

Are you using both cards ? fglrx will only support the HD 5650, so you won't be able to run dual head with that. How do you install fglrx ? From repos or from AMD installer ? Does it generate xorg.conf ? If yes, post it here. The laptop does not provide a method of switching between cards. - until ...
