I'm not exactly sure why, but the create launcher function has stopped working for me on Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon 4.0.9. I created one yesterday to a website, it took me a bit to figure out that I had to put "firefox" or "google-chrome" before the web address. It worked perfectly. Now today, when I right-click Desktop and click on + Create a new launcher here nothing happens. The little box where you can put name, command doesn't appear anywhere. Has anyone experienced this. Any ideas?
Edit: I found out a workaround with these two commands in terminal.
sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends gnome-panel
gnome-desktop-item-edit ~/Desktop/ --create-new
The second command gave me a Gtk-message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.
I don't know what that means, or why I need a workaround in the first place.
