Can the printer settings icon (located in system settings) [SOLVED] be placed on the Cinnamon Desktop?

Post by tgwilt »

Subject says it all. I would like to be able to access the printer settings without having to open the system settings. I have tried dragging it, CTRL-dragging, ALT-dragging. Pressing the right mouse button to drag, and anything else I could think of doing. I even emptied the cat's litter box (cat belongs to daughter, but she had bunion surgery and can't really do much right now). Maybe I have to find a 1 year old virgin goat, cover her with blue mud, and chant, "go icon, go icon, go, go go".

Any advice, no matter how silly, is appreciated.

Right click in menu - select add to desktop. No need for animal sacrifice... :)

Well DUH. I never checked the menu to see if Printer was there. To think I ordered a gallon of blue mud on ebay.

Thanks,
