Re: [SOLVED] Panel Previews Missing

I solved it by resetting the panel. I had to manually reset all the options but it is all good. :D

The reset command for various distros is at this link. the command I used for Cinnamon was ( gsettings reset-recursively org.cinnamon ).

[SOLVED] Panel Previews Missing

The pop up previews no longer display. Now it just pops up the name. I tried a Timeshift but no. My system info is below. There are other panel problems too. The active items are missing but when hot corners opens Desktop #1 they are seen there. https://i.imgur.com/m9Ditbt.png https://i.imgur.com/Cs...

Re: No bluetooth icon

Do you see Bluetooth on the Menu panel? If so, open it and ensure that Bluetooth is enabled there. If not seen perhaps it is not checked in the Menu Editor (Main Menu). If it is unchecked there it will not be seen on the menu panel. Also, in Bluetooth settings you can select or deselect a bluetooth ...

Re: All Desktop Screenshots of 2018

I put this orange theme on Google Chrome's browser to show how 2 really different colors can be compatible. The Cinnamox theme uses an orange highlight with purple? with good effect so I went one step further and added the orange theme. Makes an unusual screenshot. This is in double scale and full s...

Re: problem to install Hp Laserjet cp1025 Color

As I said "Also, delete any HP software as that is only needed if you wish to install a wireless printer. You will not be able to load the "missing plugin" from there." I still recommend a fresh install and believe that printer should load automatically but I will butt out now as you obviously have ...

Re: Cerebro search disappears on restart

Cerebro is not listed in the Menu Panel or the Main Menu. Cerebro is delivered as an AppImage so you can simply use the menu editor to add an icon and link to the image. That works great. I put the icon in favorites on the menu panel so it is very easy to get to. Thank you once again. :) In the edi...

[SOLVED] Cerebro search disappears on restart

I load the Cerebro app from this link and it works great but after a restart it is no longer on the menu. How do I retain it? I can still click the Cerebro icon once (in Downloads) to put the small Cerebro icon on the panel and then the hot key works to toggle it and the search window appears and it...

Re: Cinnamon Themes

I looked up the definition of Aubergine. It is a British term for Eggplant, Ha. I now have an Eggplant colored theme :D EDIT; I think the calendar in Cinnamox-Aubergine-Transparent is excellent. It is quite transparent as you can see but not totally transparent. That is double scale by the way. The ...

Re: Brightness Applet Works Great (18.3 Sylvia)

After using this extension for some time I have found that it is not as useful as I first thought. After only a small amount of dimming the text becomes hard to read. I find it useful for full dimming at night when I am not using it and the photo slideshow still looks good. I am editing the post tit...

Re: Cinnamon Themes

I was hesitant to try these because I thought they would be a repeat of other colored themes but was pleasantly surprised. The Aubergine-transparent theme is fun and the colors are not shocking as you might think. After a short time it has become one of my favorite themes. The attention to detail is...

Re: problem to install Hp Laserjet cp1025 Color

In Printers there should only be one cp1025 printer listed . If there is a duplicate then delete it. Another thing I do is reset the printer which is done by powering off (unplug it) then power up holding the resume button down for 20 seconds before releasing it. Then go to printers as this will sur...

Re: Brother MFC-7360N

Yea, your system could be damaged and a fresh install might be the solution. I did that and my HP printer loaded the drivers automatically and all was fine. I did have to locate the driver for an older Canon all-in-one printer The Simple-Scan utility recognized the Canons scanner. I needed the utili...

Re: Desktop icons won't open

When I load Mint the bottom panel is so small I can not see it but it is there. Click the windows logo on the keyboard to view the menu panel. Put the cursor at the bottom and right click to view the pop up and then resize it in panel settings.

Re: Drivers missing Canon Pixma MP600

I use Simple-Scan to access scanner controls but that may not work for you. Try it though as it might be all you need. Link below. Of course if this is a problem of missing dependencies it can be a real pain.. I don't know what that means either but just say the system could be damaged. Folks here w...

Re: HP printer doesn't work with Mint 18.3

Congratulations. I know how you feel as my HP laser jet recently failed to work and nothing I tried fixed it. I reloaded the os (18.3 Serena) and then the printer and scanner loaded automatically with no need for installing the HP-lip utility. :)

Marking this solved will be a good feeling.

Re: Cinnamon Themes

Wow, just what I was looking for. The transparency is a great feature even though many simply hate it. I love it which just goes to show how personal themes are like colors. One loves pink, the other not so much. Actually I was looking for a transparent Menu panel but this is only semi-transparent a...
