Re: How can I make Workrave program/applet harder to exit?

Rightclick on the panel icon, choose 'Preferences'. Mind you, once you use the preferences to hide that icon, I'm not sure how you'll get back in to the preferences... ah wait, you can also get there by rightclicking on the small popup window that indicates when your break is coming. Now I'm wonder...

Unticking 'Show sytem tray icon' in Preferences => User interface does exactly that.
How do I get to "Preferences"?

Re: How can I have granular control over Redshift?

Ah, that's exactly what I used to have in previous versions of Mint. Thanks.

I right-cicked on my panel, chose "Add applets to the panel", typed "redshift", and added that. Now I have the same thing as you do.

Thanks again!

How can I have granular control over Redshift? [solved]

I have redshift and redshift-gtk (both are version 1.11-1ubuntu1mint1) installed on my Mint 19.1 Cinnamon. It works without a hitch. It auto starts when i boot up, and it turns on the "bluelight filter" in the evening. However, I want more control over the settings. For instance, I want to manually ...

How can I make Workrave program/applet harder to exit?

I have the Workrave program/applet installed on my Mint 19.1 Cinnamon. I use it to nudge me away from wasting too much time on the computer/internet. It sits on my panel, and, when I'm really bad, I right-click and choose to exit the program. But that defeats my goal of having a "wake-up call" to pr...

What tablets/devices, current or old, have dimensions close to a Kobo Forma (160 x 177.7 x 8.5 mm)?

What tablets/devices, current models or discontinued, have dimensions close to a Kobo Forma (160 x 177.7 x 8.5 mm)? Android or Apple or Windows or whatever, doesn't matter to me. :)

Thanks, phd21.

I was having a hard time getting pyExifToolGUI to work. I installed the appimage for digikam and it just works! Thanks for the recommendation!

My laptop is a Toshiba E570. There's no discrete GPU. Running Cinnamon Mint 19.1.

Re: How can I save the default save-to folder when I press the PrintScreen button?

Thanks, Kyphi. The second command you shared did the trick. If I recall, in an older version of Mint (I can't remember if it was Cinnamon or Mate or Xfce I was using then), whatever your last-saved folder was was the save-to folder for future PrintScreen presses. It's a cute hamster eating a carrot....

What is the Cinnamon equivalent for Tellico, a KDE app?

I've received a .TC file which is to be opened by Tellico. Tellico is a KDE app (http://tellico-project.org/), and I prefer to stick to apps meant for my Cinnamon Mint 19.1 Tessa. What would be the native app for me?
