2 week change up
« on: July 09, 2016, 09:58:31 pm »


Changed a few things. New wallpaper, just search abstract desktop wallpaper.

New panel at top left - Right click on panel, panel, panel preferences then click on + sign next to Panel 1. To add clock go to items and scroll down to clock.

I have Plank but found you cant add ice apps, it just shows that a web browser is open, so added them to my panel - Right click on panel, then panel preferences,  click on items then the + sign.

Click on LAUNCHER then click +ADD. You will see an icon appear at the right of your panel.

Right click it and go to properties, go to the green plus sign, click and then simply search for your created ice app!

Once added it's easy to move across to wherever you want it... Right click panel, panel preferences, items, select your new icon and use arrows to move it further down the line.

I have Greybird widget, Peppermix-Light-7 theme and of course - Peppermix-7 Icon Theme

Yes very eye pleasing in a 'cool-mint' or 'menthol'  kinda way .. reminiscent of Peppermint ICE style :)

Maybe I should have included the new logo icon in blue too.

That's really nice. A fresh mint look  8).   To add Ice created apps to Plank, go to:
Code: [Select]
nemo ~/.local/share/applications
Click on the app you want.  To start with, they'll be generic looking and you'll receive a warning about it being an Untrusted application launcher.  Ignore that, it's only a warning. and click on Mark as Trusted.  It'll change and have a recognisable icon.  Drag this to the Plank dock and drop it.  That's it - have fun  ;).
Backup! Backup! Backup! If you're missing any of these -  you ain't Backed Up!

Hi Bloch,

This has been asked and answered several times already. Search using the terms menu categories and you will find how to do it.
