Re: System Tray displays a black square after start up

After start up there is a black square that appears among the other app indicators. It has no tool tip. I can get it to go away by restarting Cinnamon (alt+F2 then 'r') but it will return on a subsequent reboot. I suggest checking the .xsession-errors file which is a hidden file in your home direct...

Right or left click = nothing. Tooltip = nothing.

Re: Blueman has two indicators?

Update for anyone who stumbles upon this thread looking for an answer to this:

Clem worked with the Blueman group (sorry, couldn't resist) on a fix. It has been merged into Blueman and Clem will backport it into Cinnamon when it is available.

Re: Blueman has two indicators?

LM21 cinnamon I've had the same issue (currently reverted to LM20.3), two blueman icons in the panel. If I close one of the panel icons, both close. I just live with it. It's definitely an annoyance as opposed to a problem. I don't use the Bluetooth on this computer very often (but my daughter does...

Blueman has two indicators? (Fix has been done, check your updates!)

Hello everyone. I have an annoyance that I have not been able to resolve on my own. I'm hoping that someone with more knowledge will save me from running down too many blind alleys. Ever since I did my fresh install of Linux Mint Cinnamon 21 the indicator for Blueman has been on my panel in a black ...

Re: Cannot play some video with Celluloid

In rummaging about I found that KDE Connect can cause Celluloid to crash and that this bug is fixed in Celluloid Version .22 . Since LM 21 is using .21 it appears that using the Flatpak may be the easiest solution for KDE Connect + Celluloid. Update: I uninstalled Celluloid and installed the Flatpak...

Re: Cannot play some video with Celluloid

I have the same thing going on. Celluloid crashes at launch with the above output. Nvidia video card. VLC and Firefox are happy to play a video.

Since I only have the one video card, how do I get a miracle? lol.

Re: Cinnamon Menu Application Name Weirdness

This happens because so many applications use generic names. Take text editors. One might be called Xed and the other Gedit but they both use the generic name "Text Editor" in the menu. That extra part you see is Cinnamon doing it's best to let you know what is what when you have both ins...

Re: Cinnamon Menu Application Name Weirdness

SO... WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? Check the two directories /usr/share/applications /usr/local/share/applications and check all the categories in the Cinnamon Menu Editor, especially "Other". My advice: do not delete the entries! The menu editor is a bit buggy so it can mess things up. Just un-ch...

Re: Cinnamon Menu Highlight Bar Flashing

Thank you @smurphos. I have added that to my watch list. I might finally try Cinnamenu since it can be made to look like the stock menu. Or, I'll wait for the team to fix it. It all depends on how slow work remains.

Thanks again.
