Currently setting peeking opacity to 0 makes this applet show a black screen when peeking instead of showing the desktop.

Hi, I like it to, but I get a warning (triangle with exclamation mark) when installing it on Ubuntu 22.04 Jammy Jellyfish (x86-64) with Cinnamon 5.2.7, that it could crash the Cinnamon desktop. Cheers !

Hi! Thank you for this applet! Could you add a killer-feature to minimize windows on primary monitor only? This is a very useful feature that allows you to use this applet with multiple monitors

Hi, thank you for making this useful applet. I've been using it for 1 year. Worked great for me. But after the cinnamon 5.4 update, peek desktop at hover is not working as expected. When I hover over the applet, it makes the desktop transparent, I can't see the desktop icons or desklets or the wallpaper. I assume it is happening because of the muffin window manager update. I'm on Linux mint 21 with cinnamon 5.4.12. Hope you can fix this soon.

Hi! Thank you for your report. I can't reproduce the problem in any of my machines. It seems to be a problem specific on yours. Try to reinstall the applet and see if this can solve.

I installed an update today and now this applet doesn't work any more. I can uninstall it but can't get it to function after reinstalling. There is nothing visible on the panel. Really disappointed, as it was very handy. Hope you can fix it.

Click with the right mouse button in panel -> enter edition panel mode -> drag the applet to the end -> Click with the right mouse button in panel again -> exit edition panel mode

Fits really well with my theme that makes Mint look an awful lot like Win10. :D

This is so cool. I've just been learning html, css and javascript for a few months and this is kind of outside my skillset for now. How did you learn to make applets?

Such a simple but great improvement to the panel. I made a suggestion to make it default on cinnamon:

Thank you, I don't know if they will want to make a change like that, but it never hurts to try

Works nice, but would be great if showed the desktop on hover when dragging a file. Just like W10
