Re: Autologin on lightdm

Any suggestions? On all Mint distros using the lightdm/slickgreeter combo it should just be a case of opening the Login Window application and adding the appropriate username to the Automatic Login section. No need to go hunting rats. Here's the Mint 19.2 version - earlier versions didn't IIRC offe...

Re: Looking for a way to schedule Cinnamon theme changes

OK a slightly different approach that avoids the long sleeps and the need to worry about the effect of suspend / resume. As written the script wakes every 60 seconds to quickly check the CURRENT_TIME against the NEXT_TIME. If NEXT_TIME is in the future it will go back to sleep. If not it will apply ...

Re: Menu Search

You have....

Code: Select all

gsettings set org.cinnamon enabled-search-providers [\"duckduckgo@linuxmint.com\"]
will enable the default but very well-hidden duckduckgo search provider in the Cinnamon menu.

You'll need to Ctrl-Alt-Esc to restart Cinnamon having run the command.

Re: Command 'code' not found

Try /usr/share/code/code

The deb package doesn't appear to put the executable in the default locations that would be in your $PATH so you need to launch it with the full path.

Edit to add - or try the suggestions in Flemur's linked thread.... :wink:

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

I haven't got time right now, but I'll see if I can get the systemd service working my end and will update with instructions assuming I'm successful. It was the answer starting as below that at a glance looked to be the correct approach. This answer is based on askubuntu.com/a/661747/394818 (as also...

Re: Screensaver cosmos

Oh lol, I thought we were talking about MATE. Cosmos is a MATE screensaver, and the instructions I gave you were for enabling it in MATE. I cannot help you with Cinnamon screensavers, but there's likely one that can do a slideshow, too (the cosmos pictures are in /usr/share/backgrounds/cosmos/, you...

Does it honour the system theme if you launch it from the terminal with this command?

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

I think I understand what this does, but I would like to make a change and I don't know how. Instead of exiting from the newly started process, I would like to terminate the previously existing process and continue on with the new one. This would give a reset of the themes based on the current time...

Re: Cinnamon just crashed. You are running in fallback mode.

As an experiment please see if changing the vsync method in Settings > General in the 19.2 install makes any difference to the reproducibility of the crash.

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...
