Re: Caja: I miss my zebra stripes

Those are part of the theme. There is a big difference between Mate 1.16 and Mate 1.18. The first is built on gtk2, the second on gtk3. That's why you see the difference.

Re: Open terminal window under context menu

In Cinnamon in settings->Windows under the behaviour tab, there is an option called "Location of newly opened windows". You can set that to cursor to get what you want. Some applications ignore this setting but it works with the terminal.

Everyone seems to be assuming a hardware problem but you don't say if it only shows on the login screen or shows on the desktop also?

Re: Nemo bug?

I couldn't reproduce this. Does it happen with all 3 directories? How many and what type of files are in one that causes the issues?

Re: Ethics Q: Publishing work based on someone else's

I want to be clear first that I'm not lawyer or legal expert. I understand that you are trying to be careful and considerate here but you are probably over thinking it. If this was me I would probably just fork it, rename it, and do what I wanted to do. Leave it open source and on github. Give prope...

Re: How to change colors in GTK3

This really isn't possible via a GUI anymore. You pretty much have to modify the theme files.

Re: Cinnamon 3.4.7 Menu Text Drawing Issue

Disabling "Fade effect on Cinnamon scrollboxes" in Cinnamon settings->Effects will fix this. This issue has been fixed in the upcoming Cinnamon 3.6 in Mint 18.3.

Re: [Mint 18] HiDPI support in Mint 18, is it ok?

I know this thread has been going for a little while but a quick read through shows a few misunderstandings. First 1080p on 13.3 inch screen is NOT HiDPI. I have a 15'' laptop here with a res of 3840x2160. So at 2x scaling it provides a 1080p effective resolution. And I'll tell you, it looks fantast...

Re: Ethics Q: Publishing work based on someone else's

The copyright info inside the files is pretty normal. There was no license info anywhere that I could find on the github page. Most projects have them. It's posted on github with all the source available so you are probably pretty safe. You could always attempt to contact the original author and ask...

I'm finding I quite like it. The interface was jarring for about 2 days but I'm already used to it. And page loading is much faster which is a good thing for sure.

Re: MATE updates on CINNAMON distro

When Cinnamon crashes it has a fallback mode. Prior to Mint18.2 this used gnome-panel in 18.2 and going forward this uses mate-panel. Thats why you see those updates. It's all good :)

NO really knowledgeable users install multiple DEs.

Really? I do this all the time and consider myself at least a mildly knowledgeable user. Only a few, such as Cinnamon and KDE, really cause issues with one another.

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

This is a known issue. Myself and another of the devs have seen this happen. The problem with trying to fix it is that it happens rarely and seemingly at random. I also have only seen this on my machine with the Nvidia driver and not my intel graphics machine.

Re: Mint 18.3 beta downloads?

The current iso's you see are only available to members of the testing team. This is to get them through the basic QA process and ensure they are actually suitable for a more public beta release. You will often see them go through multiple new iterations during the QA phase as glaring, major issues ...
