Title: Desktop icons want to move to the trash
Post by: jozefmw on July 19, 2014, 01:35:30 am
When I click right on some icons (not all), I get straight away the confirm window: 'Do you want to move the *.file to trash can?'  :-\

These icons are placed above the task bar, snapped to the grid. :-X

Have you by any chance changed from the default theme (Peppermint-Light) ?

Again thanks for your reaction.

If you mean the wallpaper: I did change the default image to an own one, which I put in the 'own Images' folder' under 'Documents'. It is a .jpg-format.

No, I mean if you go to
menu > Preferences > Customise look & feel

then the "Widget" tab

Is "Peppermint-Light" still set as the theme ?

and is this the release version of Peppermint 5 .. or the Beta test version ?

I use Peppermint 5 indeed.
Peppermint-5-20140623-amd64

It is still 'Peppermint Light' in the widget tab.

We had the same issue with some themes in the beta version of Peppermint .. we ended up having to fix the theme itself.

Do you want to try increasing the:
GtkMenu::vertical-padding = (n)
in the theme and see if that helps ?

I do not understand what I have to do with: 'GtkMenu::vertical-padding = (n)'

I tried it as a command in the Terminal, but obviously that is not what you meant.

Here is an example (Orion-Peppermint theme)...   ;)

I did  try increasing the:
GtkMenu::vertical-padding = to (n)

Rightclicking on some icons still make pop up the window askimg whether the icon should be trashed.
So nothing changed.

Is it OK: to leave the value on (n)  ?

If I keep the pressure on the right mouse button, I can scroll up and down the menu  and can use the items within.
But when I release he button, the window asking to confirm the trashing of the icon pops up again.

It is not a major item, I can live with it. It does not keep me awake all night  ....  :)

I keep the topic open for a while to see if somebody comes across the solution.

Thank you all for your time and efforts.

Sorry for being rudimentary, but...

Did you enter a number, such as 3, or literally use '(n)'? 

That wasn't intended to be an integer.  It will require a number, such as:

Code: [Select]
GtkMenu::vertical-padding = 3

Tried  '3' first. Didn't help.
Than I tried 'n' and left it on 'n'.

I will put it back as :
GtkMenu::vertical-padding = 3

Thank you for your reaction!

(n) just stood for "a number"

I was hoping you'd try say
GtkMenu::vertical-padding = 3
or
GtkMenu::vertical-padding = 7

Be aware you'll need to save the file then log off/on before the changes will be be applied ;)

Tried:
GtkMenu::vertical-padding = 7

Also the 7 did not solve the problem.   8)

And you logged off and on again (or rebooted) after making that change ?
Title: Re: Desktop icons want to move to the trash
Post by: jozefmw on July 22, 2014, 05:03:04 pm
Yes, indeed. I saved and rebooted.
After rebooting I controlled if the 7 was still present.
It still was:
GtkMenu::vertical-padding = 7

OK, it's unlikely to be the theme then.

Does it do this with a different mouse ? .. or the touchpad ?
Title: Re: Desktop icons want to move to the trash

Wht I did not understand is whether I should try all the numbers between 0 and 9 ???   :-\

Can't hurt .. you can always set it back to 3 afterwards if necessary.

All that's supposed to do is say how many pixels into the menu are to be ignored if clicked on .. if you get my meaning.
(so if you're on some ind of super high resolution you may even want to try above 9)

I changed the mouse for another brand.
The problem remains.

To-morrow I will try different numbers.

Thanks for participating in finding a solution.

I tried all the numbers between 0 and 11.
Not one was able to solve the problem.

So I put and left it on the number 3

Thank's again for all help.
