Re: Recovering from mate-panel + Caja crash

But if "caja crashes and there is no way to interact with the OS", then you won't be able to click on the launcher too... It probably won't even be on the desktop at that time, as the desktop is managed by Caja.

Re: Changing icon or color on the right side panel

Ok, I see it in volume control icon. Thought we already fixed that... but no, it happens in both Mint 18.2 and LMDE. I'll try to fix it. For now, you can use a few workarounds to make it react to a new icon theme: - mute and then unmute the sound (middle-click on the icon) - resize the panel until t...

Re: Changing icon or color on the right side panel

Re: Printer driver needs old library

That's what I saw at that page - I didn't actually try to install it; it might be that there's something more hidden :)

To play it safe, I would try it first in some local system, maybe even a VM.

Re: 17.3 Mate Menu Tray And Desktop Icons Not Loading After Fresh Install And Updates

Weird...
One more thing I would try is to create a new user, then log in as that user from the login screen, and check if the caja and panel problems happen for that user too.
