file path that stores pinned icons in grouped-window-list

Post by antrrax »

Doubt 1
Which directory / file that saves which icons are pinned to the applet: grouped-window-list?

In the path "/home/MY_USER/.cinnamon/configs/grouped-window-list@cinnamon.org" displays only general settings but does not store pinned icons

----------
Doubt 2
Which directory / file saves CinnamonMenu settings with categories and icons in each category?

---
I want to back up these files and include them in a pos script

Double check the content of the json file in ~/.cinnamon/configs/grouped-window-list@cinnamon.org/. It does define the pinned apps by reference to their desktop files.

Code: Select all

 "pinned-apps": {
        "type": "generic",
        "default": [
            "firefox.desktop",
            "org.gnome.Terminal.desktop",
            "nemo.desktop"
        ],
        "value": [
            "google-chrome.desktop",
            "chrome-pjkljhegncpnkpknbcohdijeoejaedia-Default.desktop",
            "nemo.desktop",
            "org.gnome.Terminal.desktop",
            "org.keepassxc.KeePassXC.desktop",
            "geany.desktop",
            "cinnamon-settings.desktop",
            "virtualbox.desktop"
        ]
Custom menu contents are a combination of the desktop files in ~/.local/share/applications and the config files in ~/.config/menus
