Re: Wallpaper's desktop is ''zoomed'', and can't be changed to fill or another thing.

Try in a temporary fresh user account for test purposes.

If no difference try in a software rendering session (log out and on the login screen click the Cinnamon icon to chose Software Rendering).

Re: Need working instructions on how to install software (specifically libimobiledevice)

Essential info - which phone? According to it's github it was effectively abandoned in 2015 so maybe doesn't work with newer phones / newer IOS versions.

Re: Wallpaper's desktop is ''zoomed'', and can't be changed to fill or another thing.

I'm not sure what is causing your issue - I've just downloaded your pic and it displays fine as a wallpaper on my 1366 x 768 res machine on 19 with Intel graphics.

Do you have the same problem with other images of that resolution or other user added images of any resolution?

Re: plasma

And I think Cinnamon is a triumph of style over substance which needs an insane amount of RAM for a Linux DE. Sure Cinnamon uses more memory than Mate and XFCE on Mint, but I don't think the difference merits the moniker 'insane' Fresh installs of Mint 19 XFCE, Mate + Cinnamon - all 64bit, all full...

Re: Mate 18.3: Fixed size windows do not rescale or adapt to insufficient screen area

Just a quick question are you actually talking about Software manager, rather than Update Manager? Update Managers controls are all at the top of the window. Sorry just re-read your post properly - it's the policy setting window you are talking about - which doesn't exist in 19.x. Software Manager ...

by using a 'Desktop' account to try and undertake Admin tasks you are just putting barriers in your way encouraging yourself to use and abuse su to elevate privileges, sounds contradictory.

To the OP - What Mr Een said - get rid of old kernels.

See viewtopic.php?p=1554622#p1554622 for a quick one liner terminal command rather than one by one in Update Manager.

Re: How to fully set a theme (including task bar settings)

Bear in mind that screenshot is probably from Gnome Shell not Cinnamon so you are unlikely to achieve an identical look, but you can get close. What applets etc you use in the panel is up to you and not set by the theme. In Mint 19 the Desktop part of the theme effects the panel size, spacing etc (u...
