That's what you see in dconf-editor. You need to install gconf-editor if it isn't already installed. Then click on "Configuration Editor" in the System menu. There you will find the window variables for cinnamon in desktop > cinnamon > windows. Everything else is in dconf-editor > desktop > org > cinamon.

where can I get the extension?

looks pretty nice, I need that part showing the download/upload speed...in gnome the extension is called netmonitor lite
It's not an extension, it's conky... It's in the fedora repo, and here's my ~/.conkyrc script for the panel:

${alignr}${color0}${time %a}$color ${time %I:%M %p}
Things like maximum_width and minimum_size will need to be adjusted to your screen dimmensions. Also, I used ${goto y-pixel-location} instead of $alignc to reduce "jitter" as the field sizes change. The man page for conky is pretty comprehensive, and there are a lot of on-line guides for it.

EDIT: If you like to auto-hide the cinnamon panel, putting the conky panel behind it has an added advantage. The conky panel will block windows from encroaching on the cinnamon panel when you move or maximize them. So this combination is perfect for my preferred use case.

Re: Cinnamon guide for F16 (replacement for gnomes-hell)

For those with dual monitors, this may be useful if you lean that way:
Code:
gconftool-2 --set -t bool /desktop/cinnamon/windows/workspaces_only_on_primary false

Re: Cinnamon guide for F16 (replacement for gnomes-hell)

Are there any known bugs with the weather extension? I've had it revert to "29 degrees, mostly cloudy" several times and had to change the translate setting to fix it each time.

Re: Cinnamon guide for F16 (replacement for gnomes-hell)

Re: Cinnamon guide for F16 (replacement for gnomes-hell)

Thanks, that fixed the applications menu in that theme. But is there any fix for the ginormous buttons in the volume control panel menu? Actually, ALL the themes (except ChocoLotte) have that problem. And I can't figure out why, because there is nothing in the CSS to suggest that they should be different at all!

I fixed the volume control panel menu, look at my commit you will see the changes that have to be made.



Code:
.sound-volume-menu-item {

     padding: .4em 1.75em;

 }

 

sound-volume-menu-item StIcon {

     icon-size: 1.14em;

     padding-left: 8px;

 }

Re: Cinnamon guide for F16 (replacement for gnomes-hell)

Looking at my CSS file that I downloaded a half hour ago those properties are identical to it, but it still displays weird there. I downloaded the file (overwriting the old one in my downloads folder), re-ran the test script to install the themes, set the theme in cinnamon-settings, and did a shell replacement. Actually, now that I look at it again, it's just the Rhythmbox stuff that's messed up.

Maybe try logging out and back in? It works fine on my end....

Yes, it should work for all cinnamon themes, just make sure there arent any other entries for .volume...if so you need to edit them to .sound-volume If you have any trouble send me a pm I will help.

It's the playback controls that only appear when Rhytmbox is open.

Also, I just noticed that the messages appear on top of the top bar and have black on black test.

Ahh...I see what you are saying about Rhythmbox. I will look into those things tomorrow, from now on it would help if you could post screenshots. I just uploaded ElentaryOS, I believe it will have the same problem with Rhythmbox but other than that should be fixed. Please report bugs at my github so we don't clutter this thread.
