Re: [SOLVED] Mint 18: How do I disable the screensaver?

You can disable the screensaver in Mate? I'll be brief because you've asked in a Cinnamon thread (in the Cinnamon DE section of the forum), but look for the setting associated with screensaver use/activation within MATE that deals with how long the computer should be inactive - and, by that, I mean...

Re: Lags and freezes when browsing.. from live cd!

Reading from a CD is always inherently slower than reading from a HD or even a USB drive. It also means that OP is using the exact version of the browser that was placed into the .ISO, which could in theory cause some issues (lack of security, et cetera). Or else es has "installed" updates which - ...

Re: Move to and Copy to on xfce4 desktop

When you right click on a file and the selections drop down, look at the top right corner and you should see a +. Click on it and the other options will appear. Is that some new feature in the 18.x series of Mint Xfce? Because there's nothing like that on the desktop in Mint Xfce 17.3. Regards, MDM

Re: How can I play my smartphone's music in a car that has just radio/CD? (pic included)

What are the options to make use of the car's speakers? Prefer an inexpensive solution. P.S. The car is a 2008 Toyota Yaris. Inexpensive? I just did a web-search in an attempt to find out whether or not that factory radio has RCA inputs on the back. My search fu is poor this evening, so I didn't. B...

Re: Cinnamon VS Mate VS KDE VS XFCE. A list of comments I found around.

8. XFCE development is growing whereas Mate is losing pace. Hardly. Xfce is considered feature complete. Lest people misunderstand your comment and get the idea that it is no longer being actively developed, it is. They seem to be on 4.13 now, although that is a "development version," if I understa...

Re: How Do I Add a Terminal Command to "Startup?"

This works on 18.3. In Menu > Settings > Session and Startup > Application Autostart tab You can add commands there. You may want a delay in front of the command (no idea, myself.) It should be pretty self-explanatory. Yes, a delay seems like a good idea. I would probably want something that acts o...

Once in a blue moon, I will stream a podcast (audio) from my cell phone to my computer.

Re: New Terminal shortcut key (CTRL ALT T) opens new terminal under active window

My guess is that it's some kind of configuration issue.

For the most part, I leave things alone - other than switching the desktop backg...

As is reading those tutorials from your linked site, which are not well vetted and are mostly garbage.

Re: New Terminal shortcut key (CTRL ALT T) opens new terminal under active window

When typing <CTRL ALT T> to open a new terminal, have you noticed the odd behavior that the terminal window opens BEHIND the active window if the active window is not another terminal !!! Then you need to <ALT TAB> once to bring it to the foreground as the active window. Nope. I just held down CTRL...

That should be the Mint default, just so people know that workspaces are available and being used by default. Thanks!
I think it was in Mint 14 Xfce. It probably confused people, so disappeared in newer versions.

Re: "Standards-Compliant" Web Browser Reference?

Additionally, all browsers by now have more or less dumped the old add-on technology, now only supporting the greatly improved and more secure tech.
