Cinnamon development

Post by pinnerite » Mon Mar 25, 2019 7:19 am

When I first tried Mint I was delighted how lean Cinnamon was compared to KDE Plasma 5.
However, as always familiarity breeds, well not actually contempt but a desire for more.

I am right-handed and when I was first weaned away from windows some 15 years ago and able to site my desktop icons on the right. I felt liberated. Sadly under Cinnamon that is a chore, so my pet request to the developers is 'can this be added to your wish list please'?

Cinnamon is a github based project. Perhaps start an issue here:

Right click your desktop, hover over the Desktop menu choice, and then uncheck Auto Arrange from the submenu. Yes, you have to move your icons manually. If what you mean is to have auto arrange on and have a menu choice for right-align, that's not available now but it would be a good idea.
