Re: Panel Auto-Hide Not Working

Did you find out which specific spice caused the issue? This would be nice to know. I think I've seen some other reports of people running into this issue.

Re: ARM Implementation for Mint?

You may now consider yourself corrected. Lol. I'll pass. I doubt you have any real insight as to what the Mint team can or cannot finance. To the OP. I in no way meant to belittle your question. Just answering based on comments I've seen and heard from Clem and the other devs. Not supporting ARM do...

Re: ARM Implementation for Mint?

I'm wondering if there is any movement towards an ARM version of Mint. No. Someone has to pay for it, and the LM team is not only small, it's also poor. Sorry but this comment made me laugh. You know a lot of the Mint developers and contributors personally I assume? Enough so that you are comfortab...

Re: Linux Mint Cinnamon changes its lock screen to Ubuntu's

It look like you installed gdm3 somewhere along the lines. Following the steps here should get you going in the right direction: https://itsfoss.com/switch-gdm-and-ligh ... ntu-14-04/

Re: Is it safe to install and use GNOME DE in Linux Mint 19.3?

Despite what it says above it should work fine. I've done it multiple times in the past. You will want to let it install and use GDM3 as the login manager. Otherwise the lock screen won't work properly.

Re: Cinnamon and KDE - My first impression

I find Mint 20.1 Cinnamon logs in in at ~650mb on idle after logging in. I hope you mean for the entire system and not for Cinnamon itself. Cinnamon itself really shouldn't be that high. As for KDE I try it every once in awhile and find the performance really good. For me it's just a personal disli...

Re: What's the future of Linux Mint?

Lunduke seems like a nice guy, he is not the obnoxious provocateur that you would think from the title.
Lol. You do realize that he does the "Linux Sucks" videos on a sort of regular basis?

I didn't watch the video but I'm familiar with Lunduke so I don't need to watch that nonsense. Look around, as pointed out by others Linux dominates nearly everywhere. Hmm, that's an interesting point - many people have seen the introduction of WSL as an attempt to kill off Linux You do realize that...

Re: What does this symbol mean?

That is the "On Screen Display" that shows up when you do certain things like change the volume or screen brightness using the keyboard function keys. I don't remember the exact cases where you get that particular one but seeing that you have a keyboard issue, I would suspect that is the i...

The file you posted is cs_users.py not cs_backgrounds.py. So you are looking in the wrong file :D

Re: Mint 18.3 Cinnamon won't access "Change Backgrounds"

I was going to install ScreenRecorder on his PC, but can't remember the name of it. I have it on mine, you do a Shift/Cntl/Alt/R to start it and stop it. but I can't find it as a GUI in the menu, don't think it has a GUI. This is Cinnamon's built in screen recorder and as you discovered doesn't hav...

Re: Mint 18.3 Cinnamon won't access "Change Backgrounds"

If you right click on the image you want to use there should also be a "Set as wallpaper" option. Maybe that will work. Maybe I'm being dense but it doesn't seem clear. Are the options not available or are they just not working? One thing you should be able to do is run cinnamon-settings b...

Re: Mint 18.3 Cinnamon won't access "Change Backgrounds"

Could you provide a bit more info? What do you mean by "Change backgrounds"? The option from the desktop right click menu or do you mean from Cinnamon settings? I'll have to be honest I don't remember how these have changed from 18.3.

Re: Sounds Setting in 20.1 Cinnamon Edition

If the sound settings are crashing, please run

Code: Select all

cinnamon-settings sound
from the terminal. Then do what you are doing. It should give you info on why it's crashing so you can paste it here.

Re: How to turn off the hold-&-let-go function with context menus?

It doesn't care where you PRESS the mouse button, it takes the option where you RELEASE it. That's not really true. PRESS is where you open the menu. Holding it and then releasing over a menu item then activates it. Things can be coded to react to the different events but the menu he is talking abo...

Re: How to turn off the hold-&-let-go function with context menus?

That is just the way Gtk menus work and how they respond to clicks. I don't know of anyway to change that.
