Re: Sonya 18.2 Cinnamon background fails

As you have noticed, this happened to me. But it was not a 'cinnamon theme' issue but a gtk3 theme issue. And tried glass mint theme in two of my machines and both worked perfectly. Could you check your --- 'themes > controls' to something default (like Mint-x)?

New cinnamon 3.4.3 creates a pixel gap from top of the screen to any item on the panel. It makes the buttons and items in the panel difficult to click. I assume related s...

I just found this is caused by GTK control theme. I was using Ambiance-brown. I know now cinnamon desktop is now a separate process, but not able to pinpoint actual issue. In my observation, every theme shipped with mint works perfectly fine, but every other theme breaks 18.2 cinnamon desktop :-( . ...

Re: short cuts

If you are using cinnamon desktop and nemo filemanager, use control+m to create "symbolic links" aka "symlink" (Windows like shortcuts - if I remember correctly) of the selected item. You may also create it after selecting the item - via "Edit --> Make links" menu.

Re: No picture thumbnail in Nemo on Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon

Deleting .thumbnails from home directory and creating link named ~/.thumbnails to ~/.cache/thumbnails solved my problem. Right click the ~/.cache/thumbnails directory, use 'Make Link', rename newly created link to .thumbnails, copy it to home directory. Thanks for the clues.
