Adding program to menu after unzip/chmod +x

I have a few programs that are not listed in my menu after unzipiping and chmod +x to make an executable. So far they are just folders with an executable inside. Id like them to be in my list of programs along with the appropriate icons.

Annoying conky problem

When I apply the "Gotham" widget it creates a window and displays inside of there. I tired other widgets and they work fine. This is still happening after a fresh usb install. Hoping someone can tell me what I need to do to fix this : )

Conky problem after upgrading to Mint 18 Sara (Cinnamon)

One of my conky applets now appears as a window, the other on one is fine. I don't have conky-manager anymore after upgrading and I can't sudo apt-get install it either.

Does anyone know how to get this back to normal again? :)

Re: Window tiling

Maybe give xmonad a try? It seems to play rather nice with cinnamon Thanks for the reply. and thanks for making your first post on this thread. It seems just about the same as i3 so i gave i3 another go and iv picked it up quite well. What i was trying to achieve was better snapping of windows but ...

Window tiling

I installed i3 and while it could be fun to learn to use in the future, its not what Im looking for. The way mint tries to snap windows in my setup is ugly and horizontally and its not working like Id imagine it should be. I just want it to til windows with ease and not have to resize windows manual...

Re: Text color

let's see, you want to edit your system-wide text color, right? (say, nemo, gimp, system settings...) if you're using a custom theme, back it up and then place a copy in ~/.themes. rename it to a name of your taste. next, open the gtk-2.0 folder and open the gtkrc archive. Edit every value having "...

Text color

Im trying to find the location of the text color in cinnamon. for example say you are in your downloads folder. all the text under your folders, other directories, where it says File Edit View ect.

I have a theme that has blue text and id like to bring that to my current theme.

Re: Absolutely UNACCEPTABLE

I said it couldnt find cinnamon settings or something like that. I'm still intrigued how installing a music player (from software manager or off the net?) could possibly have borked your whole system but I'd be more bothered about the above, which makes me think you might have been 'tweaking' syste...

Absolutely UNACCEPTABLE to barge in here, yelling in this forum with a deceiving message title. You screwed up by doing an installation where you have no clue of what you're doing. You didn't backup all your stuff. This is all your fault. Nothing to do with Mint. So take it as a lesson. Make an ima...

I read something about that. Could you explain abit about what that would look like? I have an old cinnamon dvd that I use to reinstall.

Also could I copy a vm to a usb?
