Re: Install Korean/Hangul

I was about to ask about Korean text when I saw your entry. I suspect that your problem may simply be that Mint/Cinnamon's Korean support is broken. The following is what I had planned to post, and should explain why I say that: I am using Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64-bit, with Cinnamon version 3.6.7...

Keyboard Selector on Panel

Does anyone know if the Keyboard Selector on the Panel has been fixed in the new Mint 19/Cinnamon so that a user can select from more than four keyboard layout/script choices? This bug (I believe it is actually a Cinnamon bug) has been around for a few versions now and, since it is the only thing I ...

Keyboard Panel Applet: Direct Choice

Hi: This question refers to 64 bit Linux Mint 18.3/Cinnamon ... I have a hot key set up to iterate through the keyboard choices in the Keyboard Panel Applet, but I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to directly choose one of the keyboards, e.g. with some command or other, rather than scrolling t...

Re: IBus Hindi inscript Devanagari layout [SOLVED]

You are welcome.

Hopefully, this thread (including your ultimate solution) will help others who have difficulty entering alternate scripts. It's a shame that these things are so poorly documented in 2018.

Re: Menu Icons in Mint 18.3/Cinnamon

Wow! Thanks for pointing me to that. I guess I have a lot of reading for today. My initial impression is that all of your comments on this subject could be the basis for a tutorial with a bit of editing, but hopefully I can learn a bit more about Cinnamon while going through it all. Like you, I'd ra...

Re: Different backgrounds for different workspaces

Thanks much for the response. Since Cinnamon doesn't support different background screens for different workspaces, are there any other methods people use to indicate which workspace they are on at any given time? The panel applet (at least on my machine, which I haven't changed from the default) sh...

Menu Icons in Mint 18.3/Cinnamon

Hi: I've noticed when editing the menus that it is quite easy to set an icon for any menu entry, but setting an icon for a category (e.g. Accessories, Internet, etc.) is much more finicky. Some icons that can be successfully used for an app are not recognized for a category. Are there different requ...

Different backgrounds for different workspaces

Using Mint 18.3 with Cinnamon Desktop... I used to use Compiz on another distro to set different backgrounds for each workspace, but am getting the idea from these forums that Compiz is not recommended for Mint/Cinnamon. a) Is that last generally tru and, if so, why? b) Is there some facility within...

Re: GParted telephone icon meaning?

All frivolities and kidding aside, it seems like most respondents so far have figured out that the icon represents that the partition is mounted. But the OP's question included a comment saying that he could not find a reference for the meaning of the various icons. If anyone knows of such a referen...

Re: GParted telephone icon meaning?

FWIW: I think I located the actual icon in a number of places, for example the file stock_keyring.svg in the directory usr/share/icons/Mint-X/apps/96. There are also many links to that base file, such as badge-small.svg, seahorse.svg, etc. At the size it's displayed in gparted though, it isn't helpf...

Re: GParted telephone icon meaning?

I had also noted this icon very recently, but was unable to find any reference to its meaning and just assumed that it was meant to replace the keys used as an icon in earlier versions. I guess it could be a telephone - I thought it was an ATM machine. Intuitive! I'm assuming that sdibaja's response...

Re: IBus Hindi inscript Devanagari layout

I don't know if I can help you with scim, as I have never used that. One thing I would check though: Are you SURE it's just the spacebar not working?? Devanagari Script is only used for those characters specific to Indic scripts; most punctuation and common characters - such as ( ) . , and the space...

Re: IBus Hindi inscript Devanagari layout

OK. I think you answered in question 5 that you are typing Hindi. It really would help a lot if you would answer any of the other questions.

Re: IBus Hindi inscript Devanagari layout

Can you describe how you set up Devanagari? The input method editors in Mint (or I guess Cinnamon) are a bit flaky, but they can be made to work. The best method is to use System Settings > Hardware > Keyboards, and then select the Layouts tab. For some reason, Mint's keyboard configuration assumes ...

I tried "%A, %b %d - %I:%M:%P" (without the quotes) which is what I have on the desktop and then, thinking it didn't understand anything but the clock (since it's named "clock" rather than "date/time"), I used "%I:%M:%P" by itself.

Re: Format Date/time display on Log In Screen

Thanks, Cosmo; I changed the clock format, but it seems to have made no difference at all. I first tried logging out and back, and then rebooting completely, but it's still the same as it was. I checked the file, and it was just as I left it - so nothing reset it to a default during the reboots. I s...
