LM19 panel laucher properties location?

I'd like to copy my mate panel configuration from my LM19 mate laptop to my new system however the dconf dump of / does not contain the properties of the panel lauchers. Are these located in a centralized location somewhere?

Thanks

Hi,

The dconf dump should contain keys for each of the panel launchers including the path to the relevant desktop file. The desktop file defines the the reset of the laucher properties.

e.g.

Code: Select all

steve@steve-VirtualBox:~$ dconf dump /org/mate/panel/objects/launcher-caja/
[/]
locked=true
launcher-location='/usr/share/applications/caja-browser.desktop'
menu-path='applications:/'
position=30
object-type='launcher'
toplevel-id='bottom'
If you've made custom launchers the desktop file will only be referenced by name without the full path. The desktop files for custom launchers are in ~/.config/mate/panel2.d/default/launchers

That applies only to launchers that you create via the right click panel > Add to Panel > Custom Application Launcher tool. Otherwise as you said.

You can also save and load panel layouts via mate-tweak by the way, they get stored to /usr/share/mate-panel/layouts.
