Thunderbird 60 for LMDE 3 has no Calendar

The solution proposed in [SOLVED] Thunderbird 60 has no Calendar refers to Linux Mint Ubuntu based version and not LMDE 3 for which the problem still persists (at least in my case).

Re: [SOLVED] Thunderbird 60 has no Calendar

Karl and sdibaja, thanks a lot for clarifying. So essentially, and correct me if I'm wrong, the take home message is that there is no solution for LMDE 3 users yet (my lightning is updated to the last version but there are still issues).

Cheers

Re: Firefox è = и, ù = щ

I'm using uBlock Origin 1.14.24 (and HTTPS everywhere) addon for Firefox but I already tried in switching it off and re-loading the page. No changes. What is strange to me is that it is not happening in all webpages... I don't know if it is random or if there is a link with some specific settings. I...

Re: Firefox è = и, ù = щ

Does it display correctly here? Yes, no problems. Could it be that inside the Firefox preferences => Fonts you switched from "Latin" script to "Cyrillic" script by mistake? I checked and the settings are for "Latin" the setting for "Text Encoding for Legacy Content" Here I have "Predefined for curr...

Firefox è = и, ù = щ

Word rendering with Firefox (57.0.4) in some webpage is behaving weird since around one week (I can not tell precisely when, I believe was after one of the last kernel update or firefox update. Can be?) For example now I see in some blogspot blogs pages: и instead of è щ instead of ù but if I copy p...

Hi all, in Xreader (version 1.4.4) apparently there is something wrong with the font visualization of german letters (ü, ö, ...)

Re: sources.list file empty?

I found a confirmation of your response in " The Debian Administrator's Handbook " page 101: TIP: If many package sources are referenced, it can be useful to split them in multiple files. Each part is then stored in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/filename.list (see sidebar “Directories ending in .d” page 1...

Re: sources.list file empty?

Thanks Fred that's clear.
I was suspecting something similar. Essentially I can modify the /etc/apt/sources.list file considering it as a "personal" repo location without messing around with the sistem's repos located in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory.

See you soon!

sources.list file empty?

Hi all, here a newbie question from a newly converted Mint -> LMDE user: After the install of LMDE I had a look at the etc/apt/sources.list file but I found it empty. I then realized that the repos are placed in a different folder as single files. Can someone explain why (I couldn't find any answer ...
