Re: xed warnings

These types of warnings are typical when running Gtk applications as root. It shouldn't be preventing Xed from working but simply warning you that certain functionality isn't. For example, xed-position is the bit of info in the metadata that xed uses for it's "Restore cursor position" functionality...

Re: cinnamon 18.3 & hot corners

That doesn't disable the hot corners. If you want to disable them open "Hot Corners" from the menu and just uncheck hover enabled.

Re: Wallpaper (Background) Slide Show

By the way, one of the bonuses of this method, which I personally enjoy, is that you can place images into that directory at any time, and feh_slides will use those images when they come up. Cinnamon's built in slideshow should do this as well. In random order it shouldn't repeat an image until the...

Re: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS to use Xorg by default

To clarify a couple things for people who may not know. Wayland doesn't work with the Nvidia proprietary drivers. This is a long standing issue that needs to be sorted between the two sets of devs. In Ubuntu 17.10 and early 18.04 you were given the option to login to Ubuntu, the default on Wayland, ...

Re: nemo

This is most likely, because Nemo still gets used as a background process (e. g. for showing the desktop icons); following that the Nemo process never quits and consequently the last command never gets executed. I don't think, that you can do anything about it, at least not with Nemo as file manage...

Re: Risk of installing a later version of Evolution Client to 18.3 Cinnamon ?

On the basis that Evolution version 3.20.5 appears to fix what ever was broken in 3.18.5.2 could any wise soul advise of the safest way (as far as possible) to install 3.20.5 to my “live” machine without hopefully breaking anything.

- Each monitor has one bottom panel and both panels have a menu applet on the left side.
Ok. I thought the menu was misplaced when it opened. Thanks for providing more info.

Re: Upgrade GTK+ to ≥3.14 ???

This is generally a bad idea. A huge number of things depend on your current gtk version. This will break some of your theming at the very least and likely quite a number of other things since many of your other applications are built with gtk.

Re: libgtk-3-dev seems to kill entire system (won't boot)

I feel like we are missing some info here. Installing libgtk-3-dev from the stock repos most certainly shouldn't break your system. This is one of the first things I and every other Mint dev have to do on every new install. Do you have any PPA's enabled? Not sure why you are using the `-y` flag with...

Re: (SOLVED) How do I get back to the "old" login screen?

MDM covers the login screen, and also makes it possible to work with the desktop more directly again. Included it incase helpful. I'll change 'need to install' to 'if want to', as that was a goof. But the dconf ref basically means getting everything back to how MDM runs innately in 18.1. That's not...
