Format Date/time display on Log In Screen

Hi: Formatting the date and time the way I want it on the normal Cinnamon panel is easy enough, but how can I format the date and time on the log-in screen. I assume it's in some config file - and likely not in my Home directory - but I can't locate it. So far as I can see, the closest thing in syst...

SOLVED: Workplace Switching wrap around in Cinnamon

Hi: I'm new to Cinnamon, but have used workplace switching on other distros. I'm used to having the Ctrl+Alt+Right arrow go through workspaces 1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4-1-2-3, etc. - in other words, to wrap around. I'm also used to having Ctrl+Alt+Down arrow go from (for example) workspace 1 to workspace 3, e...

Re: Add Keyboard Map for InScript?

Zounds; once again I find that I've been over-complicating things. After reviewing the file you mentioned, I determined that what I was looking for was there all along, but skillfully hidden from view under the misleading term of "Indian." Sigh... Apparently, the non-standard keyboard layouts are al...

Add Keyboard Map for InScript?

Hi: I have a new installation of Mint 18.2 Cinnamon 64 bit. I've added a Thai keyboard mapping under: System Settings -> Hardware -> Keyboard -> Layouts and this works well. But I wanted to add a Hindi keyboard mapping as well, and the only choices listed are: Hindi (Bolnagri), Hindi (HaGaPa phoneti...

Gimp: Recently Used File List Disappears

Hi: I'm using Mint 18.2-Cinnamon-64 bit with the stock 2.8 Gimp as installed (I haven't added the usual stuff to it, since this is a new install). After using it for a few days, it has become apparent that the Recently Used File List periodically becomes empty. I had experienced this issue before on...

Re: SOLVED - (grub-customizer) Boot-Up Menu still shows Old Version -

Just out of curiosity; what exactly is the problem with grub-customizer? I've seen the "10 things" web site, but it really doesn't say anything other than the author doesn't recommend it. I tend to agree with what MtnDewManiac says, but would like to hear some real-world examples. While I'm quite co...

Location of Ibus Icons

Hi: Just did an installation of Linux Mint with the Cinnamon desktop and installed ibus for an additional script (Thai) just to test before adding the rest of those I use. The issue I have is that the icons (really just abbreviations like "EN") on the panel are much smaller, and colored in such a wa...
