Re: How to move panel around/to top of the screen?

Edit - glad you got it sorted - general rule of thumb for weirdness following switching themes - Ctrl-Alt-Esc to restart Cinnamon... ..... Ctrl-Alt-Esc to restart Cinnamon and then try and rightclick on the panel again. https://i.imgur.com/Bs07wl5.png Failing that if you can add the Settings Applet ...

Re: Shortcut for run application? [SOLVED]

No worries you are welcome. As a hint tabbing having typed character(s) will list available commands. I think this works in all desktops environments. There may be other 'tricks' but they are likely desktop environment specific. if you want additional functionality (combined run dialog/file search/n...

Re: How to move panel around/to top of the screen?

Which Desktop Environment (Cinnamon, XFCE, Mate, KDE?)

If Cinnamon, right click on empty space in the panel and choose modify panel - not panel edit mode. Add and move panel should be available options.

Re: Could I do this in my Android phone too?

Nope, they are 3 separate lines that need to be added to the file ~/.config/youtube-dl/config Number 7 - nano ~/.config/youtube-dl/config should open the empty file in the terminal text editor nano. You add the 3 separate lines in 8 and then save the file - on a desktop machine it's Ctrl-X and then ...

Re: non-responsive screen saver

Output from inxi -Fxz would be good.

Do either of you have additional extensions/applets/desklets installed? If so make sure they are up to date. Buggy add-ons have been implicated with memory leaks in Cinnamon, particularly those that monitor the system (CPU temps etc).

Re: What do I update?

You definitely need both of those, and you'll probably find having installed the mintupdate update that you'll have a whole bunch more to review and install. I think you are on 18.3? Mint-update has a very good help section that I suggest you take the time to run through. But in a nutshell updates a...

Re: Files with .drive extension.

NVME is a fairly new standard I believe. It might just be that nemo has never being updated to support displaying drive info for NVME on that screen Nonesense. NVMe has been supported for years.

NVME is a fairly new standard I believe.

Re: How to update your kernel for Meltdown and Spectre

That command just confirms that your currently installed kernel is capable of KPTI - whether it's active or not will depend on your boot parameters in grub. If you haven't messed with the boot parameters the default behaviour is that it is active. dmesg | grep isolation should return something like ...

Re: Oomox - GUI for generating themes (Cinnamon, GTK2, GTK3 and Metacity)

That would be nice - those types of tools were available when GTK2 was king of the hill. GTK3 theming is more complex and I don't think it's feasible to make those kinds of tools to make edits on the fly. I'm considering (time allowing) porting the Mint 19 version of Mint Y to be a base for my forke...
