Re: Lost desktop functions with Cinnamon Update 3.4.6+betsy

I should mention that I've tried some of the fixes in similar posts a few years ago: nemo -n, nemo -q, and changing/changing back 'show desktop icons on primary monitor', with no effect. Then installed and switched to mate, which works normally.

Lost desktop functions with Cinnamon Update 3.4.6+betsy

After updating my LMDE 2 (level 3 updates) my desktop is just a background picture -- no shortcut icons, no right-click menu. I can get to those shortcuts by opening nemo in the main menu and opening /home/myusername/desktop, and they're all there and functional. Any suggestions to fix this?

Re: What happened to smb-share in Mint 19

Perhaps try the tweak noted here: https://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/ubuntu-beaver-samba-shares.html Worked for me -- I could connect, but read-only, until I applied this workaround. Just for one-stop shopping, the workaround was to edit the samba config file/etc/samba/smb.conf as root, and add th...

Re: What's Up with the Weather? (in Mate it stopped working for me in 18.)

I just updated from 17.3 in December, and the app's not working in Cinnamon. Curiously, I dual boot with LMDE, and it is working there.

Re: Cinnamon panel weather applet not working

Got it working. Looked in ~.local/share/cinnamon/applets and found two entries: one for the new mockturtle app, and one for an older cinnamon-weather app. Presumably this was a holdover from before my upgrade to Betsy. I deleted both, then reinstalled the new weather app from the settings menu, and ...

Re: Cinnamon panel weather applet not working

Thanks, mrdashhund. I just tried that -- there is no configure button for the weather applet. If I click on the calendar applet, for example, I see the configure button you're talking about. But when I click back to the weather applet it disappears.

Cinnamon panel weather applet not working [SOLVED]

This is the mockturtle weather applet that sits in the panel. All I get in LMDE2 (upgraded from LMDE a few months ago, manager indicates up-to-date) is an icon with a circular arrow and an ellipsis. If you click on it, it says 'loading'. You can right-click on it and take 'configure', but it just ta...

Re: Why a whole slew of updates?

Using Cinnamon, but have used mate, so must still be installed. And yes, most of the updates are related to Mate, with about 15 apparently not:

Today the update manager indicated there are 71 updates available (all the old versions are from wheezy). Can someone explain this to me? I'm current with update pack 6, and my system is pointing to Linux Mint Debian Latest. It was my understanding that using update packs frees you from having dozen...

But I always have to select a 'Save in Folder' option (home is the default, but I use a common partition on another drive). Specifying an Out...
