Re: How to Install Blender 2.80?

The way I always do it is to move the downloaded Blender file from my downloads folder, I usually move it to a folder I created called Otherapps, but it can go anywhere you want. Then right click on the Blender file, from the menu that appears click on "Extract Here." Once all the files have been ex...

Re: VOTE ! Mint-Y-LOGO... A New Version Of The Linux Mint Logo !

I think the new version looks okay, but I also think it's a better look if done in the way MadmanRB has it. The joined up letters preserves the old look of the logo, but there is a new look to it with the shape of the leaf. Edit: Just noticed how late I am to this thread. I really should pay more at...

Currently downloading the new kernal at 14.2KB/s, it's usually about 500KB/s. Painfully slow.

Re: 3D Mint logo

Cheers, linux kiwi, it's much appreciated. I like shiny too :D

Thanks, catweazel. Constructive comments are always welcome. It's quite an old render now this one, getting on for five years ago. Could be time for something new me thinks.

Re: Blender bugs

Got problems here too on Mint 19 Cinnamon with Blender 2.79b. The blender version is from Synaptic Package Manager. The node Wrangler addon is not working and there is no option to change the Cycles Compute Device in the user preferences to GPU Rendering. I checked to see if CUDA was installed on th...

Re: Can't update installed kernel.

Thank you, fabien85, updating grub solved the problem. I ran the sudo update-grub command then rebooted, i did check the advance menu to see if anything had change and the 4.13 kernels were present. Rather than select the latest one via the grub menu i decided to see if the update manger would now s...

I also have Cinnamon 18.3 installed on a separate HDD, it shares this drive with an old copy of windows vista. It is Cinnamon that I can't update the kernel for. I have the kernels 4.13.0-25 and 4.13.0-31...

Re: Thunderbird email download problem.

Thanks, catweazel for the info. Since I posted this thread the problem has gone away. Not sure why as the only thing I did was to play around with the default for my email addresses, but straight after that I no longer got the popup warning. Not sure if it was coincidence or something else. I will u...

Re: Thunderbird email download problem.

Thanks for the info, mrgordos. Alas the fix you suggested dose not work for me. I uninstalled and reinstalled the same way as you but I still get the same pop-up message and no email for the one address. I think I will have to dump Thunderbird and try something else if I can't solve this problem.

I noticed a few differences between the readout for your nvidia card and my one.

The only things I can think of to check, and you may already have tried these, are to look...

I stumbled across this tutorial https://ubuntu-mate.community/t/tutoria ... boot/11583

I haven't tried it myself as I'm not that bothered about the login/logout sounds, but it might be worth a look.

Re: Mate 18.2 panel text white

Same problem here, my .gtkrc-2.0 also appears to be dead after upgrading 18.2. Now I have on idea what the time is :shock:

It's not that bad really but it is a tad annoying. I will keep an eye on this thread for a fix, or if I find one I will post it here.

Hi, ccoyle. Gimp can flip images horizontally. If you open up Gimp and look on the tool bar for an icon that has an arrow pointing both to the left and right, click on it and you will see a tool option that says horizontal or vertical. Select the one you want then click on the image. Then the image ...
