I have a colorized by Melange screenshot, but although I managed to shrink it to 616 pix wide, the forum still argued that my file should be 640 or less.

I removed my Dock applet, thinking it was about that, with no success.
Does anyone know how I can identify the element involved, and maybe remove it ?


thanks

The quick fix is likely to be... open the Desklets settings module from the menu. Highlight the Launcher Desklet entry. On assumption it has a tick beside it press the - button to remove from the desktop.

Or if you want to troubleshoot further - what's the output of this command run in a terminal

gsettings get org.cinnamon.desklets.launcher launcher-list
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.

That was it.
I remove the launchers and the dashboard I used as a "dock", but the desklets were kept registered. Removing the entry cleaned them, and shazam, no errors !

Thanks.
I totally overlooked it came from there.
