Re: [Solved - kind of] Cinnamon Drawer ?

Something must have been wrong with my first install of cinnamon (though I have no idea why), but drag & drop worked on other installations. Lack of a general drawer still a problem, but at least the sidebar is workable.

Run launchers as admin ?

LMDE2 MATE desktop launchers had a right-click option "open as administrator" that appears to not exist in LMDE3 Cinnamon ? Would anybody know how to run a launcher as admin ? I can't just add a "sudo" as I don't get prompted for a password. Ex.: drop cache commands sync; echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_...

Re: Waterfox

Thank you. I came back to post the same. I wish I had found your message earlier. It would have saved me quite a bit of time. Installation was no problem. Did you manage to add the key though ? When I run wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:hawkeye116477:waterfox/Debian_9.0/Rele...

[Solved] Waterfox

In LMDE2 I used these instructions: https://bintray.com/package/readme/hawkeye116477/waterfox-deb/waterfox The installation worked o.k. but not the updates, which is also the question I have: I never received any update notifications through the update manager - which I thought was supposed to be ac...

Re: Cinnamon Drawer ?

Thanks so much, you have the patience of a saint. - Make your vertical panel - o.k. - add a panel launcher applet to it - o.k. - drag your launchers to the new panel launcher applet - no dragging possible. - You may need to right click on the panel launcher applets to enable dragging in their settin...

Re: Cinnamon Drawer ?

Thank you. That vertical panel workaround seemed like a good idea. Well, until one figured out that it's totally useless as there is no drag & drop to panels in cinnamon (WHY ???). The "add to panel" function drops launchers onto the horizontal panel exclusively, not onto the vertical one. And when ...

Re: Cinnamon Drawer ?

I invested some more time into wmdrawer - to no avail. It does not hold anything I try to drop into it. Custom applications menu I still like but still can't get to work reliably. Maybe someone else could try ? E.g. with LibreOffice Writer or Character Map - just two examples that I can't get to sho...

Re: Cinnamon Drawer ?

@smurphos: Great idea for a workaround, thank you. Unfortunately that does not work either as I cannot move the panel-launcher applet to Hideable applets.

Re: Cinnamon Drawer ?

Thank you, I had already found that, but it can only hold applets, not launchers, and it opens horizontally, thus takes up space on the taskbar again. "Hideable applets" at least opens vertically and comes a bit closer to the old drawer, but again: it can only hold applets, not launchers. I found "w...

[Solved - kind of] Cinnamon Drawer ?

MATE had a drawer - literally a yellow drawer icon that could hold other icons for program and accessory launchers. Clicking on it would open a vertical list of whatever was in it. I do not seem to be able to find this in Cinnamon ? Thanks a lot.

[SOLVED] StrongSwan installation problems (network manager)

Sorry to even post this here, it might be way too complicated to try and solve this via this forum (as I am not experienced enough), but maybe someone has an easy solution: LMDE 2 (Betsy) 64-bit MATE, trying to install StrongSwan. Unfortunately the repository does not offer the network manager (netw...

Re: Keyboard shortcut or command to turn off screen ?

When I started using the command
xset dpms force off
it became apparent that it does in fact turn the screen off, but only for about 20 seconds or so.
Is there any way to stop the screen from turning itself on again ?
Thank you.
