Re: Can't start any gtk app in sudo mode locally

OK Fixed it by some extra searching.
Need to do
xhost local:root
To allow local root access to the xserver.

Really weird how it wasn't allowed by default!

{SOLVED} Nemo 3.0.6 how to restore breadcrumbs?

I've gotten used to using the breadcrumbs for navigation, but in Mint 18 it only seems to offer the text entry for location. Is there anyway to restore the breadcrumbs? I've tried different themes so it isn't that. EDIT: just created a new user and they have breadcrumbs, but I can't see where the se...

{SOLVED}Re: Mint 18 dual monitor right click problem

OK fixed it. On the Desktop settings, choose Show desktop icons on all monitors.
Now this doesn't actually do what it says :?:
However it DOES allow the full right click menu on both monitors now.

{SOLVED} Mint 18 dual monitor right click problem

I can only get a full right click menu on the default monitor. On the 2nd monitor I only see "add desklet, change background & settings", instead of the whole normal menu.
So I can no longer create a folder/item on the 2nd monitor or cut & paste to it.
How can I get my menu back?

This is only happened since upgrading to 17.2 Cinnamon. (Clean install as I had issues getting wine to run on an upgrade)

Re: How to get a wine program added as as open with

Cheers that works.

Bit of a faff compared to Mate though.
The QuickPar config sets itself up to associate with par/2 & md5 files, but it doesn't seem to be getting passed to nemo.

How to get a wine program added as as open with

OK have searched around and can't find a solution.
I have QuickPar installed under wine. On Mate it just worked and added itself to the open with menu, but on Cinnamon it doesn't.

I have tried adding a custom launcher, but it launches QP but not with the file selected.
