Re: Missing Start Menu contents on LM 19.2

Can you run ls ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets in a terminal just to double check there is no left overs of applying that patch there. If there is a menu@cinnamon.org folder in there it will be overriding the current 19.2 version and this might be the cause of the issue. if there is nothing in there...

Re: missing "change desktop background" from context menu

Nope that looks fine. One obvious thing to check that I forgot. You haven't inadvertently disabled the action in Nemo Plugin preferences? https://i.imgur.com/vtwDzMH.png if it's checked there and still not showing double check that you can bring up the background settings module from the terminal.. ...

Re: [SOLVED] Run script by double clicking Desktop file

Don't think so, I saw that commit and I checked for the bug briefly in an Install with the Alpha PPA a few days ago and it still seems to be an issue. I will check again though. I kind of feel responsible as it was my bug report in the 19.1 beta that led to the quick fix for pkexec that broke more t...

Re: Run script by double clicking Desktop file

Which Desktop environment and Mint version? I ask because current Cinnamon versions have some bugs with Desktop Launchers with the terminal=true flag, but there are workarounds.

If you want to manually fix the privacy module pending an official update you can by replacing the module with the version immediately prior to the new code for enabling/disabling the connectivity-check being added.

Re: New Windows Borders for Public Domain, Questions at end

Also maybe one more generic version that derives the color from the active gtk theme?

E.g. Metabox uses the gtk theme selected background color.....

Re: New Windows Borders for Public Domain, Questions at end

Nice - a couple of observations.

The window title seems to be set a little off-centre vertically in the titlebar.

The rounded corners look a bit odd for maximised apps.

Re: [SOLVED] 19.2 cannot configure menu?

LOL, that was easy. Where did you get the icon theme from? I'll take a look and see if the underlying cause can be fixed. Edit - don't worry - found it and can reproduce your issue. Further edit - fixing the emmoltes / emotes typo in the index/.heme doesn't fix the crash but there is something in th...

Re: Looking for a hack to change appearance over time.

Give me a day or three... Here you go - this should work. Save the script below in the folder ~/.local/bin with a sensible name and make it executable. Create the folder if it doesn't exist. e.g. ~/.local/bin/theme-by-time.sh #!/bin/dash # Kill if already running if pidof -o %PPID -x "${0##*/}"; th...

Re: Error Message in Installing and Updating - Hostname??

So I guess you have installed amavisd-new at some point? Can you remember why?

It's software designed to integrate content scanning applications in a mail server. Unless you are running a local mail-server you probably don't need it.

Indeed I did - Cinnamon initially and added mint-meta-mate and mint-meta-xfce afterwards.

Thanks for solving the mystery.

Re: Dell laptop gets extremely slow when it starts using disk swapfile

It's a tweak that occasionally causes controversy as to it's effect on overall performance but you could try reducing the swappiness, to reduce the systems propensity to start swapping to disk, but at the expense of having RAM available for file-caching - https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/...
