Hi Cosmo,

Using a Live USB, got the same results as the testaccount:

Desklets HTTP Error 400: Bad Request.

Re: Desklets Refreshing the Cache error

Do you have the same problem with applets (which have a far greater number of items available)? Unfortunately, yes. Shutter-007.jpg Also: Create a fresh new test account and do inside nothing except loading the desklet info. How does this work? I created an account called "testaccount", t...

Re: Desklets Refreshing the Cache error

Can you reach the page in the browser? If the problem is only in the desklet dialogue, delete the folder .cinnamon/spices.cache/desklet. Note, that the first part of the path is a hidden folder; you have to press ctrl-h to make it visible. The desklet dialogue should be closed during the operation....

Re: MacBook Pro getting seriously hot

You guys may be a victim of hardware issues. I work on laptops for people and a lot of time the heat-sink compound on the Microprocessor and Chipset dries out and then you have a heat problem. Many users also don't blow out their air path with a can of 'AIR' and the fan and heat-sink area gets plug...

Use a Live Mint DVD or USB. You should be able to read your hard disk data and copy it to another.

... Any tips or recommendations for keeping a solid sustainable system working is appreciated. The few I can offer are these: Don't run apps as root user if you don't need to. Downloading apps from the web can add to "rot". Beware. Blindly uninstalling items that you don't think you need ...

Re: Resizing images is a pain on Linux Mint (rant)

... Don't get me wrong. I love Linux Mint, and use it exclusively on all of my non-work devices, but it has some rough edges. Image viewers and screen shots are two. Screenshots are quite easy. There's a built-in app called Screenshot. Also, you can download an app called Shutter (which I use). If ...

Re: How to combine partitions

Actually, you have 3 partitions, #1 is a Primary partition which is the boot partition. #6 and #5 are Logical partitions that are contained within #2 which is an Extended partition. I don't think it'll be easy to move the Extended partition, but someone with more experience may have the answer. Mode...

Desklets Refreshing the Cache error

I wanted to try out a few Desklets in 18.3 Cinnamon and when I click on the Download tab, I get this:
Shutter-004.jpg

then, when I click Yes, I get this:
Shutter-005.jpg

This has been happening for several days now. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Re: How to combine partitions

Can you run this command, then copy and paste the result:

Code: Select all

sudo parted -l

or give a snapshot of the disk in Gparted
