Hi, Although this post is old but I was having similar problem in Inkscape 1.x with Cinnamon. In lieu of helping others who might stumble across this post in future, here's the solution: Inkscape's latest version is 1.x and it supports different icon themes.

Re: [How to] A simple system tray for Gnote

The "Tray icon" functionality was sorely missed with GNote. Thanks for the applet! Hope it works flawlessly!! (fingers crossed)

GNote functionality

HI, I have updated to the Mint Tricia from 19.2. The new note taking app has been changed to gnote but I couldn't find a lot of documentation or guides for how to best use it- things like using plugins etc. Maybe someone in Mint forums who has used it in the past could create a quick guide? Also Tom...

Re: Linux Mint 19.3 'Tricia' What are your First Impressions?

This is the second time that I updated the OS without a clean install (19.1 -> 19.2 -> 19.3). Both the times it has been flawless. The update manager came up with an update. Then there were system reports in 19.2! It ran a scan and showed me the upgrade to Tricia. Followed instructions, and everythi...

Re: Update Manager Icon not displayed properly in Mint 19.2

Just wanted to update that the update manager icon, including all the other icons in the taskbar are displayed properly now. I didn't do anything out of the way just kept updating whenever mint update manager showed any pending updates. The inconsistent icon appears to have been sorted out in the ne...

Re: There's a bug living inside my monitor

Just open up the monitor yourself or take it to an electronics store. Insects are pretty stupid in that they would find the way in but are unable to get out on their own!

Unexplained updates for Chromium browser

Hi, Hoping that someone would shed some light on the chromium browser updates. I keep getting them in the Update center even when I have never installed Chromium (I also checked for it and it's not there). I almost wholly use firefox which shipped with Mint 19 by default, so don't understand why the...

Where are timeshift backups and updates stored? Should I make / and /home equal?
Wherever you want them to be stored. Go into Timeshift's Settings, Location, and in your case, I'd select sda6 (/home)
Thanks so much, yeah I do have the location set to /home.

Re: Low disk space on /home

Thanks JerryF and gm10 for all the help. Really appreciate it!

I learned a bunch of stuff from this thread and ended up distributing the 160 GB almost equally between / and /home. Hoping that this will not need further tweaking in the future.

Re: Low disk space on /home

I already did: It's straightforward. Reduce sda5 from the right side to 15-20 GB, then extend sda6 so it fills the space you just created. I did read that, I guess I was looking for a confirmation. After allocating 20 GB to /home it would become 45 GB and / will be 120 GB, would that be enough? Whe...

Re: Low disk space on /home

I think I have made up my mind to keep the separate partitions. I am not a total newbie, been using mint as my os for the past 6 yrs or so, but I do try to use the simplest way out wherever possible! On the bonus side, the reasoning seems pretty solid for keeping separate partitions. :) Could you su...

... Also, does anyone know why the grub menu (that's what the os selection menu is, right?) might suddenly start showing up? Yes, that's correct. I find that the grub menu, even when correctly edited, can still show up once in a while. Run the following command from Terminal, then copy and paste th...

Re: Low disk space on /home

Kinda curious here: how "/home" could be full if there is so much space in "/". I had assigned a good chunk of space to "/" thinking "/home" is contained within it so that should take care of it (Like when I check the properties of home using the file manager it shows its "location" as "/". Where d...

Re: Low disk space on /home

Hmm.. Now that I think about it, yeah I do remember doing that during installation process!

Is there a clean way of deleting "/home" without losing any of the files? or should I just go ahead with resizing?
