Ideas - Todos

fingerprint reader -> slick-greeter support
https://askubuntu.com/questions/46501/why-can-other-users-see-the-files-in-my-home-folder

artwork:
    revamp sound theme?
    cinnamon
        text-size to be configurable in panel zones?
        cinnamon/gtk mint-y: tooltips don't match theme

help
    rtd security guide

mate:
    fix terminal apps not running (gnome-terminal --> mate-terminal)

mintupdate:
    remember sorting of updates
    have an option for update manager to initiate a timeshift backup prior to applying upgrades?

port mintstick to python3

artwork
    add dark variant support to Mint-Y (needs fixes in Caja/marco)
    cursor theme?
    sound theme?
    bump resolution of branded backgrounds

slick
    would be nice to show release number

xapps/cinnamon/nemo:
    don't ship icons with generic names in /usr/share/hicolor. All icons should be prefixed (cs-, xapp-, nemo-..etc..) so they don't conflict with other packages
    cinnamon-settings should use gsettingswidgets from xapp and retire its own

cinnamon
    gtk windows
    - When in tablet mode (that is, the screen is rotated and covering the keyboard) the RotateWindows key doesn't work anymore... It just does nothing...
    - menu-editor: picking a pixmap in /usr/share/pixmaps for a category results in no icon being shown in the menu.
    - Unable to unlock the screensaver via LDAP with libpam-ldap and nscd packages installed pointing to an openldap server.
    - csd power: https://github.com/GNOME/gnome-settings-daemon/commit/82af1816f32a26f28027ea7ce8edc79cd833bc76
    - in HiDPI, keyboard applet, the flags is not the proper size. Hovering it fixes it.
    - mounted volume applet: no notification when unmounting (as opposed to when it's done in nemo).
    - gwl: Enable "application name" label. Open FF, open at least two browser tabs. Close FF. The label slides over the icon and doesn't disappear: https://kepkuldes.com/image/UoNHl

nemo
    better navbar
    consider sping loaded folders https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdUPrMjlLy8

xed:
    option to remember past opened-documents

LMDE 4

remove debian-multimedia add backports (priority 100)

Roadmap

remove-apps
    prevent removal of sensitive packets (for instance, removing GOA removes cinnamon)

main ideas
    mintsystem apt downgrade

desktop-search:
    local files
    web engines
    recent
    apps
    dictionary
    translations

mate:
    switch mozo for menulibre

mintreport:
    dmesg errors
    foreign packages if pinned by mint
    wrong lsb info..etc.
    slow boot sequence
    slow shutdown sequence
    systray support

mintupgrade
    list/address foreign packages post-upgrade

implement an alarm clock

cinnamon:
    cinnamon slow to start after boot --> delay execution of appsys/docinfo until the DE is loaded
    CSD: support mouse wheel speed? Evdev scrolling distance?
    preferences > keyboard > custom shortcuts. Used with a Spanish keyboard layout. Recorded: crtl+number and ctrl+Shift+number (e.g. ctrl+1 and ctrl+shift+1 = ctrl+!) they are recorded correctly. When using the shortcut the command defined in the shift combination is triggered with just ctrl+number (i.e. ctrl+1). The complete combination triggers nothing (i.e. ctrl+shift+1 does nothing) and the comand defined in ctrl+number can never be used. This worked in 17.3.
    track/troubleshoot shutdown sequence (user should know what is happening when shutdown isn't immediate)
    track/troubleshoot vsync, compositing, unredirected windows and policy
    todo list applet/desklet
    calendar events applet/desklet
    multiple clocks https://github.com/simonwiles/cinnamon_applets
    network applet: airplane mode (quick way to rfkill all)
    nemo: retire computer:/// place (which is completely useless) or revamp it into something better
    alt-tab and panel use icon provided by appsys, ignoring icon set by the application itself (example: a python window using widow.set_icon_name())
    actions in panel launchers aren't translated if not present in .desktop file
    When using Cinnamon bar at top, and secondary monitor with higher height than the main display, some apps like KDE Apps (Krita, Kdenlive) or Wine Based Apps (teamviewer) will display menus from toolbar in the wrong place. Being more specific: The menus will be displayed in the position that they should be displayed at main monitor, however in this case the window is maximized in the secondary monitor.
    Is there any reason why there are two names for the same item, eg. "Trash" and "Rubbish Bin"? Would it be better to standardise on only one name?
    add gnome-screenshot to panel, right-click and select "Take screenshot of a selected area". This runs gnome-screenshot -a.. it should work but it doesn't. Is it because of the panel launcher capturing the click event or something?

xapps
    implement an app-sharing protocol to quickly move a document from one app to another

    gestures support:
        pinch:
            zoom document in pix
            zoom view in nemo

        swipe:
            previous/next document in pix

        scroll:
            sound-volume/seek in xplayer

        click:
            pause/resume in xplayer

        double-click:
            full-screen in xplayer
            full-screen in xviewer

    pix
        doesn't rotate videos when playing them
        vignettes should look better, and the same in all themes
        support prefer-dark-themes
        treeview in sidebar shows unecessary "(empty)" when dirs have no subdirs

artwork:
    Tray icons are black with mint-y themes.
    mint-x-icons: network status icons have a dark background in panel 33px and bigger (sound icon looks wrong in 41px and bigger).
    mint-y The maximize/restore window control button doesn’t change visually between in maximized and restored state (default theme and Mint-Y-Dark)

system:
    compiler optimization: consider optimizing compiled binaries for Cinnamon/Xapps

HiDPI support:
    upstream apps using GTK2: Gimp, Hexchat, Tomboy.

R&D

system
    consider enabling recommends

network discovery:
    easy out-of-the-box interactions (messaging/presence/file-sharing) over the LAN
You can’t perform that action at this time.
