Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon panel doesn't disappear on full screen programs

One last thing to try. Not sure why it didn't occur to be before. It might be a file ownership in your home folder glitch. To fix try sudo chown -R $USER:$USER $HOME No dice. I tried comparing settings from the mint 19 in virtualbox (which exhibits expected behavior) and my little pea-brain couldn'...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon panel doesn't disappear on full screen programs

Almost out of ideas - one last thing to try. In Chrome settings toggle the check for Use system title bar and borders and see if makes any difference either way. That didn't affect it one way or the other. Funny thing is I have mint 19 running in a virtualbox and it doesn't display this behavior. T...

Right click on the panel, click troubleshoot and select 'restore all settings to default'. You will need to set up your preferred arrangement again but that should clear any dodgy imported settings.
I've done that several times - no dice, same behavior as before

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon panel doesn't disappear on full screen programs

Are you holding the key combo? E.g. Hold down Ctrl and Alt and also press Escape - you should get a flash of just the desktop while Cinnamon reloads. Yes, I've used that key combination before. For now I have set the panel to "Intelligently hide" and it seems to work ok. Maybe an update to Cinnamon...

Re: Mint 19 Cinnamon panel doesn't disappear on full screen programs

Oops, I spoke too soon, now it's back to leaving the panel visible when apps are full screen (Chrome browser and remmina)

(except for /home).
Create a test user account and see if the problem persists.

Mint 19 Cinnamon panel doesn't disappear on full screen programs

Using Mint 19 fresh install (except for /home). Nvidia 1050TI with nvidia 394 driver. When I run a program in full screen the panel doesn't disappear, covering part of the full screen program. For instance when I use remmina the little control bar at the top is covered by the panel and some of the i...

64 bit kernel LM 17 [solved]

I recently installed Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon 64 bit version. I seem to be running a 32 bit kernel - "uname -a" gives me this Linux linux 3.13.0-24-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP Fri May 2 23:31:42 UTC 2014 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux I believe from what I've read that with a 64 bit CPU it should return x86_64 "...
