Desktop context menu (right click) background color

I'm making a theme of my own and I changed the most of the elements I wanted - panel and menu background color, selected item background color, etc. in cinnamon.css. 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

Using this instruction and considering CSS is still CSS as far as the CPU is concerned, I started looking for better solutions (cuz text shadow as shown above isn't really my style) and eventually found the perfect one! It even has its own generator of outlining code. And with some minor tweaking I ...

Developers of Cinnamon?

Does anyone know if the Cinnamon project has a website where one can contact (via forum or otherwise) the developers of this DE? I wanna suggest a thing or two for the new version and ask them a thing or two about the old version which I'm still using. But Ducking for "Cinnamon project" opened a per...

[SOLVED] Updating Nemo - how?

Ever since I started using Linux I figured out many other things, some of them even more complicated than a program update but there's still one I can't figure out how to do, namely - how to update Nemo . Synaptic indicates I have 3.6.4 and the latest Nemo version is 3.6.5. But the icon for the Nemo...

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?

How to make LibreOffice start with a specific theme?

I have installed a global dark theme but recently when I had to edit a 'doc' file, I noticed the icons of the program are impossible to see. Choosing another set didn't change much, so I did a Google search and found this answer: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/103944/how-do-you-turn-off-t...

Re: how to make Quora to stop show adult pictures on their home page?

+1 for uBlock Origin, if these images are ads. I've never heard of Quora before, so whether uBO can fix the problem or not, you will have to test it yourself.

Where does Krusader store its config files (Cinnamon, not KDE)?

I downloaded Krusader and made all the settings I needed but now that I wanna store them for future use, I can't find them. They're not in ~/.confg nor they are in ~/.local/share. And most definitely they're not in any of the locations mentioned here: https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/extragear-utils/k...

Re: When do we get Firefox 66.0.1?

I assume that the Mozilla Firefox developers give a much higher priority to fixing an open security vulnerability, than fixing a nasty technical annoyance. Which is a wrong policy because from that vulnerability will suffer only a handful of people, whereas most won't even notice it or know about i...

Re: Mint 19.1 long booting time after installing nvidia driver

Thank you!! I disabled the onboard graphics in BIOS and Mint booted up normally. All the other anomalies seem to be gone as well! This was so strange because I wouldn't imagine the graphics can affect the ability to install updates. Edit the title of your first post and add a "[SOLVED]" in front of...

Re: Moved from 10 year old to 6 year old computer. From dual to quad core. No noticeable difference in speed.

Ideally, I would like a computer so fast that it provides the answers I seek before I have asked my question. While I am waiting for that to becomes a possibility, I will have to rebuild my current computer if I ever come to think that it is slow :) All the hardware and speeds would mean nothing, i...

Re: sudo update-grub is not working correctly for me

Wow, first off thanks for the fast response! That looks a bit too complex for my skill level, Is that the only way to fix grub? It's not hard at all. Once upon a time I used to think that too but after the first time I tried it, I changed my mind. It only looks hard and complex but it's not. ;)
