Re: Backgrounds - Recursive Folders

Cinnamon doesn't support the XML slideshow format for backgrounds or the screensaver.

Re: flatpak house keeping

You can delete them with impunity. The command below will clear them out.

Code: Select all

sudo rm -rfv /var/tmp/flatpak-cache-*
You could drop that command (without the sudo) into a script in /etc/cron.daily/ or /etc/cron.weekly/ to automate cleaning.

Look at how they did it for the Cosmos folder and files in it. The control file is there, follow that example. Just open file manager to File Folders, and Search for Cosmos.
And you won't find it unless you are running MATE :roll:

Re: Backgrounds - Recursive Folders

The only problem is that I have a lot o photos with the same name. Is there a way to symlink them directly numbered, like from 0001.jpg to XXXX.jpg ? That complicates things a little but yes. I think you might need to split the command to do jpgs and pngs seperately. COUNTER=1; IMAGES=$(find ~/Docu...

Re: Launch new App with left-click

OK with Cinnamon 4.0.x you have two basic setups available 1) Grouped-Window-List providing launcher and window-list facility. If you allow pinned apps you can use it as left click to launch except if you've got a instance of a pinned app already open then you can right click to open a new instance ...

Re: Network issue on LM 19.2 VM - "Connection Established"

Thanks, Steve. You're a champ. I just can't spend more of my life on this problem. There's always the easy workaround - set your router to give a long lease. Short leases are only really needed when the DHCP server is likely to be serving more devices that available IP addresses - e.g. a public wif...

Re: Network issue on LM 19.2 VM - "Connection Established"

The 1st renewal request is at 30 min. --- That's because your Mint is making a valid request (I think)... mine is not (I think). It's never exactly 30 minutes or 1/2 the lease time - the protocol requires some random variation in the time of the first renewal request - See https://tools.ietf.org/ht...

Re: Uninstalling Network manager in linux mint sylvia cannot boot into linux mint 18.3 and grub rescue menu appears.

So you can't boot a 18.3 Live Session from USB? What happens when you try? My suggestion assuming you had a pre-removal of Network Manager Timeshift snapshot would have been to boot a Live Session and then use Timeshioft from the live session to attempt to restore the system. If no Timeshift snapsho...

Re: Network issue on LM 19.2 VM - "Connection Established"

Question - if you boot the 19.2 VM, then disconnect and reconnect manually does it reuse the same lease - i.e. do you retain the same IP? Another potential troubleshooting step.

Re: Backgrounds - Recursive Folders

Symlinks to the folders doesn't work as I've already stated - it's no different to having the actual subfolders inside test. You need symlinks to the images inside the subfolders. All I've offered it a workaround that's light on diskspace, doesn't involve actually moving images and an example comman...
