Re: 18.3 Panels Trashed

Since I only had a few apps installed, I created a new user and moved the app settings folders over and now panels are working as they should. Not worth digging into the why since the migration to a new user was straight-forward and didn't take wearly the time it would have to continue debugging the...

Re: 18.3 Panels Trashed

I have looked through all cinnamon related files in my $HOME directory and can't find anything related to panels (~/.cinnamon, ~/.config and ~/.local/share) Would be nice to copy files from different user where panels work to my $HOME but can't identify which files ...

18.3 Panels Trashed

In 18.3 I added a top panel and copied/pasted all applets to it. Created a Left Panel and added Launcher Applet. Removed all applets from bottom panel and added Windows applet. Now I can only right click the bottom panel to get context menu to popup, no popup on left or top panels. Also can't reposi...

Re: Applets Don't Accept Touch Screen input 18.2 - Fixed With Workarounds

It turns out that running touchegg is causing the applets to not respond to touch.

Re: Applets Don't Accept Touch Screen input 18.2 - Fixed With Workarounds

Any applet that pops up from panel and stays 'attached' to panel will not accept any touch screen input. Lots of cool applets I'd like to install but can't use because of this issue.

Re: No Touch Screen Right Click

Does a long press activate the context menu? About 0.5 - 1 second .. without those utilities running. I know it did in Windows 8.1 but I don't have a working OS on my tablet yet having borked the Windows install ages ago. Hopefully will get round to installing Mint on it at some point so I can test...

No Touch Screen Right Click

Just got a new Acer Switch Alpha 12, installed 18.2 Just about everything works, even some touch gestures (no scrolling in FF though). Can't use as tablet without being able to right-click.
