Re: Change screenshot key command

I don't get what I'm supposed to edit. "[custom-0]" just appears to be a (string) value of the key "custom-list". I also looked in the Mint keyboard settings and searched through dconf for "screenshot". The actual screenshot command doesn't appear to be defined anywhere. It seems you can only change...

Change screenshot key command

How can I edit the behavior of the PrintScreen key in Petra Cinnamon? When I was using Mint 13 LTS, I was able to bind the PrintScreen key to bring up gnome-screenshot's interactive menu by setting the following key-value pair in gconf-editor: /apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/command_screenshot = ...

How are mdm face browser images set?

Sound on multi-user system

I'm on Maya 64 bit Cinnamon edition. About 4 people use this desktop regularly. One user, for some unknown reason, always turns the sound all the way down from the software mixer after logging in. If another user is logged in at the same time, and let's say has the volume set at 50%, that user won't...

Re: Corrupted USB drive

I think I'm going to have to write this off as a huge (i.e. ~1TB of backups) loss. The drive doesn't even show up in TestDisk. It does show up under storage under Computer Management in Windows, but it cannot be initialized (interestingly, right-clicking on it says "This device is working properly")...

Alt + F2 does launch run command dialog

I'm using a gnome shell session. When I press Alt+F2, the "run command" box does not appear.

I have used xev to test whether the keys are even sending signals to the X server, and they are.
