Re: Mint 12 Tips & Tricks Guide (updated Jan 10)

Do this step by step for the weather “APPLET” (weather “EXTENSION” is done differently): Download the weather applet from "here" to your downloads folder. Open your downloads folder. Unzip (extract) the downloaded file to the desktop. Goto your desktop. Open the “cinnamon-weather” folder you just cr...

Re: Mint 12 Tips & Tricks Guide (updated Jan 10)

@anitquexray, Hmm, that kind of was a how to (in an off the wall kind of way) :) . Lets start at the beginning. (sorry for the oversimplification) Which version of cinnamon are you running? Where did you download the extension from (example: repos)? And what was its full name (example: weather@cinna...

@antiquexray, To get the weather extension working in cinnamon try this thread: Re: Weather applet is a NINJA Keep in mind that this is an extension so the version number should match the version you are using. current is 1.3.0 next will be 1.3.1.

Re: Cinnamon Panels

OK, I think I found the last error in your theme that is killing the text colors. Again in panel.css, goto line 50 and look for this part and make it look like this: #appMenu { spacing: 4px; /* color: rgba(255,255,255,0.98);*/ /* this is the line causing the problem */ /* padding: 3px 8px 3px 8px;*/...

Re: Cinnamon Panels

Is this the type of control you want?

blue is hover
red is inactive
white is active

Your theme wont do it the way its written. There is still something wrong with it. Give me some time I'm going through the code.

Re: Cinnamon Panels

I found it. Change line 5 of panel.css to

Code: Select all

    background-color: rgba(238,238,238,0.6);
the last number set is the transparency and was set too high causing the theme to crash.

sorry that took so long.

I just plugged your windowlist into my theme and it worked fine. lines 11,18,and 26 change the text colors.

Re: Cinnamon Panels

If I understand you correctly you are wanting to change the font color in the windows list (tasklist) button from white to something else? If thats the case try lines 52 and 62, maybe even 70 from the windowslist,css picture you provided. Try changing lines 52 and 62 first. It looks like a bunch of ...

Re: Cinnamon Panels

To swap the panels in classic mode you need to modify 3 files in /usr/share/cinnamon/js/ui. I've been using this for 2 days without issue, but use at your own risk. NOTE this can get undone or broken if an update replaces any of these files. (voids the warranty :D ) This will also be unnecessary whe...

Re: Cinnamon Panels

@gonzo01, You can swap the panel positions (I found where and did it) BUT all the popup boxes (including the menu) will open in the wrong directions. You would have to rewrite more than the layout.js file in order to get it to work right. (EDIT) Actually I found the 3 files that need to be edited an...

The "date and time settings" feature within the clock isnt fully functional yet.

Re: Weather App Problem

@Chazdg24 I just had mine do it. It reverted back to Saturday. Are you running on a wifi or ethernet. The reason Im asking is that mine reverted because my router freaked out and I had to reset it (I'm on ethernet). Now the extension is working fine again. Its almost like it reverted back (instead o...
