Re: xdotool no longer functioning properly

I don't think xdotool can take a display like that, although the similar tool xte can with the x flag, e.g. xte -x :0 'mouseclick 2' . Also there's no need to pipe the commands using echo. "xdotool mousedown 2" m:0x0 + c:225 XF86Search "xdotool mouseup 2" release + m:0x0 + c:225 XF86Search Today I r...

Re: Settings for Notifications

Thanks. Actually to turn them off - so the notification does not pop-up and just gets added to the notifications applet and stays there until manually cleared - users need to click on the user applet (head and shoulders icon) in the system tray and turn notifications off there. That did the trick fo...

Re: Settings for Notifications

Deactivate in the user applet the display of notifications.
Thanks. Would that be this one?

Settings for Notifications

Is there any way to extend the time a notification is displayed for and to prevent notifications from being automatically deleted a few seconds later? At the moment on Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Cinnamon 64-bit 2.2.16, the on-screen notifications disappear after 2-4 seconds and they are deleted from the n...

Version Info: Firefox 46.0.1 on Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Cinnamon 64-bit 2.2.16 From time to time Firefox's location bar and search bar drop-down list boxes are displayed totally out of position when I type in the location or search bar, often nowhere near the actual Firefox window.

Re: Firefox v46: scrollbar problems

For the scrollbar, this works for me in Cinnamon: Add in file ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini (create if it does not exist): [Settings] gtk-primary-button-warps-slider=false As for MATE, I am not sure. Does it still use the gtk-2 settings infrastructure? In this case, the file would most probably be...

Keyboard shortcuts backup on LM 17 restore on LM 18 after clean install

I'm currently running LM 17 Qiana (Cinnamon 2.2.16) but I'll be installing LM 18 Sarah when it gets released. Since I skipped upgrading to 17.1, 17.2, and 17.3 I'll be performing a clean install. In the past when I've upgraded Mint with a clean install I've found it annoying that the keyboard shortu...

Re: Weather applet doesn't work anymore

I confirm that mattst 's fix above worked for me. Instead of deleting the existing "weather@mockturtl" directory, I renamed it to "OLDweather@mockturtl". Same effect, but allowed me to revert if the fix hadn't worked. Thanks, mattst ! Glad to help. Just to give credit where it is due. It is not my ...

A fix on GitHub is now available. Users need to download the zip file on this page: https://github.com/ccprog/cinnamon-weather/tree/ccprog-yahoo-new-format and replace the contents of their `~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/weather@mockturtl` directory with the contents of the zip file's `cinnamon-we...

The weather applet , as distinct from the weather desklet, will work again if you do the following: Go to https://github.com/mockturtl/cinnamon-weather/issues/134, copy the text file at "applet.txt" shown in the post by 4t4h3cl and substitute that for the existing contents of applet.js found in ~/....

Re: Expo - selecting a specific window on another workspace using the keyboard

That's what I thought - but I hoped there was an unobvious key combination that I hadn't tried or some obscure way of configuring it.

Expo - selecting a specific window on another workspace using the keyboard

When using Scale each window on the active workspace can be selected using the arrow keys, however when using Expo the arrow keys select which workspace you want to switch to - is there a key combination which allows you to select which window you want on any of the workspaces as well?

Re: [Question] How to setup bulk rename in NEMO?

Thank you mattst. Other than missing F2 press, this is pretty much ideal and replicates old nautilus-renamer functionality. Thunar's renamer is also pretty similar to that in simplicity. Nemo team should just fork the Thunar code and make it a built in feature. :P I'd like them to fork the "thunar ...
