Re: How do I modify or create my own Icon Theme?

Is there documentation somewhere on this? The icon theme specification is probably the best you will get https://standards.freedesktop.org/icon-theme-spec/icon-theme-spec-latest.html For your issue it try deleting /usr/share/icons/Moka/icon-theme.cache , and then logging out and back in to your mac...

Re: Cinnamon-Based Launcher Built-in or Extension

The functionality has been there for a long time (Since Cinnamon 2.6 which I think was Mint 17.2) but other than maintenance has not had much development since. There is an interesting snippet on the Mint roadmap -https://github.com/linuxmint/Roadmap#roadmap - I'd guess this is intended to be non-DE...

Re: Cinnamon-Based Launcher Built-in or Extension

Cinnamon does already have poorly documented and under-developed support for a feature called search-providers. The are basically expansions to the menu search functionality to for example install applications directly from the menu, search wikipedia, potentially have a full file system search etc a...

Re: How to change highlight color?

That's the Mate Alt-Tab switcher. Not sure why you've posted the question in the Cinnamon sub-forum. cinnamon.css is irrelevant - it themes the equivalent UI elements in Cinnamon but is not used in the Mate desktop at all. I've just tried a few different themes in Mate and the bounding box is black ...

Re: How to locate program files, how to get proper program name?

Flatpaks in software manager are labelled as such so as long as you read the description you will know. You haven't got any Flatpak apps installed right now, but you have had some installed at some point given you have got several runtimes installed. They won't do any harm other than taking up space...

Re: How to locate program files, how to get proper program name?

Check sudo flatpak list. I'd have thought it would have been listed in the output of the command above if it was installed as Flatpak.

And yes Software Manager supports Flatpak since Mint 18.3 and is preconfigured with access to the Flathub repo.

Re: Make Mutter memorize window positioning

Unfortunately not - Cinnamon it tied to Muffin as WM (it's Muffin by the way a fork of Mutter). For your use case you mind find the third party extension gTile useful - https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/extensions/view/21 to give more options for tiling that Muffin gives out of the box. You can ...

Re: How to change highlight color?

Hi Vistad,

Can you screenshot exactly what you are seeing. I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'switcher-box'? Are you referring to the Alt-Tab GUI (that's what the switcher-list themeing in cinnamon.css is for). Or maybe the workspace-switcher applet?

Did you just add new folders/files to /usr/share/themes/ or did you over-write any existing folders/files? Go to your Appearance settings module and see if you can find a working theme. Then if you only added folders/files then carefully delete them again. If you overwrote any existing folders / fil...

I guess you are talking about 19.1 rather than 19? The updated look (and the Grouped-Window-List as a default applet with pinned apps rather than launchers) came with 19.1 If so in 19.1 the pinned app icon animation can be set via the grouped-window-list settings. Right Click on an Icon in the Group...
