Bug report #13809
[Mint, Cinnamon DE] Properties dialog for layers panel is not a floating window
|Affected QGIS version:||2.12.0||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Linux||Easy fix?:||No|

Open the properties window for a layer in the layers panel.
The dialog opens, but the main application behind the window is greyed out, and the 'properties' window cannot be re-positioned independently of the main application.
(This obscures the main application so that you can't use the apply button effectively, and renders features such as the color picker (in the 'styles' menu) unusable).

This is an issue with Cinnamon, not QGIS. We use modal dialogs like the layer properties window where appropriate. The issue is that Cinnamon doesn't handle modal dialogs well, but that's something we can't fix in QGIS.
