Launcher is giving an Desklet error; this._app is null (cont.)

Cosmo or anyone else.

I know this is over 3 years since you posted this suggestion but I'm hoping someone will revive this incomplete [IMHO] thread:
Open the desklet configuration and right click the desklet, that select to remove it.
Although I've been using Linux Mint for a couple of years, this is the first time I've started looking up that error message. But Nobody replied with the obvious (to me) question: What is desklet configuration? And how do I get to this editor? It is not part of gconf-editor

BTW, my error messages are:

Code: Select all

error t=2020-07-10T17:14:43.903Z [Desklet "launcher@cinnamon.org"]: Failed to evaluate 'main' function on desklet: launcher@cinnamon.org/1
error t=2020-07-10T17:14:43.903Z Could not load desklet launcher@cinnamon.org

What in blazes is this all about anyway? And now that I see the message
Hiding systray: network
Hey, I *do* want it in the systray. So there's more to discover here. Where do I configure this stuff?

Thanks for guidance here.
