Problem with copying files from HDD to SSD (Mint 18.3 and 19.1)

Consider this topic a bug report. There's something wrong with these two versions of Mint but unfortunately IDK enough about linux to identify the cause of the problem. A large file - Taxi (1998).mkv with size 3.4 GB copied from HDD (WD Blue) to SSD (Corsair 120 LE): • Windows 7 - 1 minute 12 second...

Re: Some feedback about Cinnamon 4.x

Cinnamon is now it's own project because it's used by other distributions. Your comments might be seen by the devs on the Cinnamon github pages: https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon We rarely get devs here as these are support forums. Thanks, cat, I didn't know that. I've always thought Cinnamon i...

Some feedback about Cinnamon 4.x

In Cinnamon 3.8 and older versions the text in tray (such as calendar, kb layout) was resized according to the panel size which was a very convenient feature. In Cinnamon 4.x I noticed you have removed that feature and the text remains microscopic (12px or so) no matter what size the user has set fo...

Re: Upgrade from Mint 18.3 to 19

If it were, wouldn't it be all over these forums? Not many users would take the time to report any errors. When seeing such an error most users would simply go back to the distro they know and that works for them, not bothering to report anything at all. If the problem were local, then pls explain ...

19.1 installation failed

I decided to install 19.1 in order to see its progress in general, so I downloaded the 19.1 x64 Cinnamon edition from the Bulgarian NETIX mirror. Shortly after I entered the data for creating a user, I saw a message that there was an error with copying files to the storage device. The message also c...

Re: What is the command to restart Cinnamon in the applet "restart-cinnamon"?

Ha, that works! I didn't even know there was already a shortcut for it. :o Now all I have to do is to find it and set more convenient keys for it.

[SOLVED] What is the command to restart Cinnamon in the applet "restart-cinnamon"?

I'm using an applet called "Restart Cinnamon" and when Cinnamon is ok, it's perfectly usable. However, sometimes Cinnamon freezes for unknown reasons and when that happens, I can't click that applet in order to restart the DE. So I looked for commands to restart Cinnamon in another way. I found this...

Re: Desktop context menu (right click) background color

The desktop context menus are themed in gtk.css I had a quick look to see if I could work out the selector to theme the desktop context menu only leaving other gtk menus default for that theme, but without success. If I work it out I'll let you know. The reason I asked is because I managed to chang...

Overriding interface theme for 2 applications?

I use Pinta and KolourPaint4 like 10 times a day and since they adopted the theme I made (by editing an existing one), it's hard to find the tools I need on their interface. It was hard even before editing the theme. I've also disabled the function "use dark theme for apps when available" but these ...

But I can't find the item/the line that will let me change the color of the menu which appears when right clicking on the desktop. Doe...

Something like this? :) That's a handy little tool.
Like this:

Code: Select all

.nemo-desktop.nemo-canvas-item {
  color: white;
   text-shadow: 2px 2px 0 #000000, 2px -2px 0 #000000, -2px 2px 0 #000000, -2px -2px 0 #000000, 2px 0px 0 #000000, 0px 2px 0 #000000, -2px 0px 0 #000000, 0px -2px 0 #000000;

Re: Increased text-shadows on Desktop

It even has its own generator of outlining code. And with some minor tweaking I ...

3rd level key suddenly stopped working

Earlier today I chose a 3rd level key in order to write a certain symbol and it did work for a few hours. But now when I use, it doesn't seem to be working. I even changed the key to a different one but it still won't work.
Any ideas?
