[SOLVED] Mint Cinnamon 19.2: Left-Justify Panel Applets?

Post by FenderGuy » Wed Sep 11, 2019 11:21 am

Okay, guys, I just jumped from Mint Cinnamon 18.3 to 19.2 and - WoW - I LOVE it, so far!

QUESTION:
I noticed that the panel applets in 19.2 are look/act different (2 now, top and bottom of screen).
I was able to add applets to the lower panel (calculator, terminal, Opera, files), but they're rght-justified; I would prefer to have those shortcuts closer to the Menu button.

Can I move them? How?

Right click on your panel, check panel edit mode and then drag and drop. Take note of the coloured 'drop zones'. Uncheck panel edit mode when done.
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.

My external backup drive and the hard drive on our laptop are both 500GB drives, and in my zeal to "get 'er done", I managed to format the hard drive on the laptop, so...

... I had to reinstall from my Linux Mint 19.2 CD.

It took no time at all - and my shortcuts are now on the left side, near the Start Menu, right where I wanted them. 😊

Thanks for the tip. I have more shortcuts to move down there - and now I know how! 😉

I did a fresh install. Turns out I misstepped along the way. Works fine now!
