Re: Only a quarter of one icon shows on one icon?

I've got the issue to and anything that you do to fix it, is temporary till you reboot. Then the issue is back.

Re: Core file in home directory

This is a bit old, like 6 years, but I just found the same file in my system, 18.3.
Mine is 700+Meg and seems to have come from a recent test of Kodi I was trying.

I too deleted mine as well as Kodi that I didn't like. Just thought I'd add this in case others stumble onto this thread.

Re: Mint cinnamon menu favorites box css code question [SOLVED]

Thanks. I've got two themes and they both have that piece but only one shows up.
I'll look into it more as I'm sure I've got something, maybe padding etc that's blocking it.

Mint cinnamon menu favorites box css code question

I have seen a lot of menus that have a small line between the favorites and the 3 power buttons (quit, logout, lock). But for the life of me I can't find where it is. I have a custom theme I've been working on that I would like to put the separator in.

If anyone knows, please post, thanks.

Can't install Mint 19 with swap where I want it.

I'm running Windows 10 and Mint Cinnamon 18.3 (64 bits) on my laptop. I want to boot from a Mint 19 Cinnamon 64bit Live DVD and install 19 on a thumb drive. I have tried oh so many times but every time I say 'other' partition scheme, pick /dev/sdc (the thumb drive of 32G) and delete the 2 partitions...

How to delay launching desklets?

This may sound petty but my system is a bit fast and it boots too fast for the wi-fi to connect. The weather desklet always comes up blank since the wi-fi is down. It's that fast/slow depending on your viewpoint. I'm not sure I want to speed up (or can) the startup of wi-fi, it might just be the rou...

Re: Desktop icons stacking in corner after boot

I have the same issue. I've narrowed it down to the few icons you can add to the desktop via Settings->Desktop. There are 5 icons there, home,computer,trash,network etc. I have home, computer, and trash. When I reboot these 3 will land on top of others. Only these 3. I turned all 3 off and made a la...

Re: mint 18.2 cin

I'm using mint 18.2 cinnamon beta and I see almost none of your issues regarding the appearance of desktop and calendar. I do have to admit, out of the box the typical themes for the desktop have kinda small fonts. But I have fixed that by using a different desktop theme than all of the mint-? that ...

Linux mint 17.3 (or 18.x) cinnamon. Something makes me think that when you press the shutdown icon on the menu and get the dialogue to logout,shutdown,sleep etc. there should or could be icons on each button. Is this really done? or is it just my wishful thinking. I know there is one large power ico...

[EDIT] I used the theme Linux Mint and looked at the popup.menu.js area and found the .menu entry that is new. So I just copied it to my theme, ...

What changed from Mint 17.3 to 18.1

I've been on mint 17.x for a good year plus. I took a desktop theme that was close to what I wanted and started tweaking it. As others have complained my first issue was to get rid of the transparency. I changed colors and fonts as much as I could. I have two VMs with mint 18.0 and 18.1 and have put...

I'm using Mint 17.3 Cinnamon and have used the dconf editor to change the notifications to remove-old notifications after 120 seconds. And it worked for quite some time, ~8 months. Now all of a sudden they are not clearing. Some items like drives being unmounted never did auto remove, but pidgin not...
