Re: Mint 19.1, Cinnamon; where are my screensavers?

In Mint 19.0 I had a bunch of screensavers. In 19.1 they are gone. I assume you missed this sentence in the New features in Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon Support for XScreensaver hacks and webkit themes was removed from the Cinnamon screensaver. Yes I know, but I supposed it was replaced by an other scr...

Re: How to enlarge system tray?

Apparently this is a Cinnamon thing. You should have posted in the Cinnamon forum or at least mentioned that in your OP. I don't know Cinnamon well enough to know about that recent documents applet, I suggest you try right-clicking it in edit mode to see if it's got preferences where you can enable...

It resizes automatically, and some icons are only shown when it makes sense to do so.
I don't think so; the icon 'recent documents' is not visible in working mode. Of course, there áre recent documents. It is the icon I miss the most.

How to enlarge system tray?

Some of my icons in the system tray are visible in 'Bewerkingsmodus' (Dutch, probably edit mode in English) only. The tray is apparently to small.
How do I enlarge it?
See attachment. First screen host in normal mode, second in edit mode.
Thanks.

MInt does not remember touchpad setting

Mint 19, Cinnamon.
I disabled the touchpad in settings; however, Mint looses this setting now and then after restart.
How to make this setting permanent?

Re: LM 18.1 Dropbox icon problem in notification area.

Well, lucky you. My Dropbox icon does not show in Mint 18.1, even not after the command you used.
It only appears after

Code: Select all

dropbox stop
sudo dropbox start
BTW my system tray icon QuiteRSS does not show either.

Re: Dropbox overlay icons visible in Nautilus, but not in Nemo

I did notice that the emblems were hard to see with the icon theme i am using. Perhaps this is the case for you?
Yes! I changed icons from 'Gnome' to 'Mint-X' and the overlays became visible.
Thank you!
