Re: Cinnamon 4.0: Edit Launcher Properties

You are probably trying to to edit pinned apps in the new Grouped Windows List applet rather than launchers. ... Modern layout - Grouped Windows List replaces Windows List and Panel launchers. The icons might look the same but they are not launchers, they are Pinned apps..... That's it! Ah, devious...

Thanks, that's not a bad idea. It would be good to get confirmation from an authority (Clem) before escalating to Github.

Re: Cinnamon 4.0: Edit Launcher Properties

Right-click on the menu icon and choose "configure...", under the "menu" tab: open the menu editor. In the left pane mark the category and in the right pane mark the app and click properties. Thanks for your reply. Not immediately seeing that in Cinnamon 4.0.6. I'll hunt around for that though. Joe

Cinnamon 4.0: Edit Launcher Properties [SOLVED]

Trying out Cinnamon 4.0 on LM 19.1 Beta. I know the panel is new for this release, but I can't find how to edit a launcher's properties. For example, in Cinnamon 3.8.9, I can right-click on a launcher, and a menu is displayed with an Edit option... https://i.ibb.co/qnjsRpQ/LM19-Launcher-Crop.png ......

Because Linux Mint 19.x leverages the Ubuntu 18.04 repositories, where GIMP 2.10 does not exist, as it was probably released afterwards.

so I figured out how to get there, and this is what happened From the "cannot find the file" error, it sounds like you're not in the proper directory where the ISO file exists.

Re: Using Cygwin to do Checksum of ISO

I downloaded Cygwin to do the checksum verification ... Not to dissuade you from installing Cygwin, but if the only thing you're going to use it for is checksum verification via a Windows OS, there are several other Windows apps specific to that. Ever better, if you have a recent enough version of ...

Re: LF Backupsoftwareplan

You could argue that this is overkill - my view, you can't have too many backups. I cannot argue that, as it's less overkill than me having a repository of full backup archives. :) ... clonezilla has a horrible/clunky interface and lots of options which can be confusing ... Guilty as charged. :) It...

Re: Wiping out hard drive

Augmenting the above ideas for physical destruction of a hard drive, I enjoy taking a drill with a bit for metal, which goes through the case like butter. Even better, once the bit gets to the platters, it doesn't just make holes in them, they shatter. :)

And wear eye protection.

Re: LF Backupsoftwareplan

Augmenting the above ideas, I use Clonezilla Live for my backups. It creates an image of the entire hard drive, but just the used blocks, so the resulting archive isn't the full size of the drive. If my hard drive fails, or I have a disaster by my own hand (more likely), I can just restore the entir...

You can try some of the ideas on the "How to solve internet connection problems" article from the Easy Linux Tips Project.

On my HP laptop, it was Section 1.7 from there which had the solution for me. Yours may differ, so be sure to read the other options as well.
