Re: Caja / dark theme issues - invisible text cursor?

Added above lines to gtk.css for Caja file renaming... That should be added by default in the "Dark" themes!!!

It's really almost unusable with default Dark themes!!!

By chance, i've encountered this thread which saved my life! :D

Re: Linux Mint 19 “Tara” Cinnamon – BETA Release

Hibernation does not work.

Set laptop lid close to hibernate and also tried hibernate button when logging out, the result is the same :
Black screen with flashing cursor at top-left. Laptop remains on.
Works well with Manjaro Linux..

Power Management - Improvement

The drop down list for "When the lid is closed" under the Power Options should offer more than the Suspend and Do nothing options.

Hibernate and Shutdown should also be available.
Suspend isn't a good option when running laptop on battery. :wink:

Re: Mint 17.3 on T420: Not sleeping on lid close

Had same kind of problem but found out that enabling the extra option "Perform lid-closed action even with external monitors attached" did the trick.
EVEN if i have no external monitor connected to my laptop!!!

Re: HomeBank PPA not available

I already did check these sites. However, if you check "package details" in the launchpad site, we see that there is no build for i386 and amd64. Both failed and have red icons. So i assume that newer 5.x version of homebank don't seems to compile for Ubuntu LTS and maybe use newer librairies than w...

Re: HOWTO : Install HPLIP on LMDE

Because 3.10.6 does not support newer printers (like my OfficeJet 6500A e710a).
Other than that, it's personnal taste of running latest software :roll: and having some corrections depending of your printer model.

What is HPLIP (from HPLIP website) : Chances are, your Linux system already has the HPLIP software installed. That's because all major Linux distributions regularly pick up the HPLIP software and include it with their distribution installation. However, if it is not installed or you need to upgrade...
