I uninstalled gnome-screensaver and installed xscreensaver in Mint 12 Lisa w/Cinnamon, and it works well, except for the panel lock screen button, the favorites menu lock screen button, and the keybinding Ctrl-Alt-l. How can I fix that?

Thanx in advance! :)



I have the same problem - can anyone offer a solution? What I really need are the names of the file that associate commands with the menu items, so that I can the existing command with 'xscreensaver-command -lock'.

(Good set of tips, BTW! :) )

Absolutely awesome guide!

Thanks for all of your hard work.

I'm crossing my fingers that you'll do something similar / update this for Mint 13!

Thanks again

That was the plan but all my PC spare time is spent making themes these days, which is more fun for me :D

I'm also mainly using Pangolin and spend most time with Gnome Shell though still enjoying and following Cinnamon.

A project like this is really best done as a community effort with a few knowledgeable editors rather than a one man forum post with user suggestions and additions, but currently there is no official wiki or something similar where a comprehensive community built guide could be maintained :(

If my creative itch gets a bit less itchy I'll put together a Mint 13 Cinnamon Tips & Tricks Guide.
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

Great advice; many thanks. Although I will soon move to Mint 13 I am sure much will still be relevent.
