Re: More complex window tiling

I don't have an answer for that, but you should look into xmonad if you haven't already. I have no idea if it would work with cinnamon, but for a number of years I ran xmonad exclusively and it was fantastic - *if* you want a tiling manager :). Thanks for the suggestion, I just had a look at Xmonad...

More complex window tiling

Recently I switched from linux mint 14 to the latest linux mint 17 and everything is working great! The only thing which isn't working is the gTile extension which I really loved. Luckily there now is a default window tiling which can be controlled by the super + arrow keys, I really like the way it...

Re: .minecraft folder?

Folders and files starting with a dot are hidden by default, you can make them show by hitting ctrl+h (or view->show hidden files) in the file manager. The .minecraft folder is probably in your users home folder.

Re: Keyboard shortcut

That's what I actually meant, don't know about the menu differences between all mint DE's, can be quite confusing at times. Glad you got it working.

Re: Keyboard shortcut

You can probably focus the matlab window with the following command:

Code: Select all

wmctrl -a Matlab
At least that works for me with firefox. To bind it to a keyboard shortcut, go to menu -> keyboard -> shortcut. Then add a shortcut for the above command. Tell me if it works.

Re: Quick question: starting firefox from command line

Both commands are executed separately, so first your lamp server is started and then firefox is started, without root privileges. If you run for example: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get autoremove and the update takes too long to execute you may be asked again for your password for the autoremov...

Re: Remove 'computer' and 'home' icons from desktop

Hmm.. apparantly I was wrong. It seemed to have solved the issue, but sometimes the icons still showed on the desktop, sometimes they didn't. It seemed completely random. I removed nautilus and now the icons seem to be really gone. :) But it is indeed strange as it is a clean install of cinnamon, I ...

Re: Remove 'computer' and 'home' icons from desktop

Thanks for your answers. You also might have conflicting file managers installed, like nautilus and nemo. Then (un-)checked options apply only to the default file manager (the one handling the desktop). To solve this, uninstall one of them i.e. nautilus or nemo. Edit: on Cinnamon nemo is supposed to...

Re: switching between multiple access points

New laptop arrived and it seems to have no problems whatsoever using either of the access points 8)

I can also change the access point manually with the command in my first post now, but ironically there's no need any more. Anyway, problem solved.

Re: Storing linux commands

Hi PeterTi, Good to hear you like the command line! :D The commands you use in the terminal are automatically saved in the history, I believe it keeps the last 2000 commands you ran in the terminal. There are several ways to use the history: 1. Use the 'up key' to go one command back in the command ...

Re: Can't Enter Password in Terminal - hplip Installation?

Hello and welcome!

If you are asked to enter your password in the terminal it won't show you what you type. It will however probably just work fine if you type it and then press enter.

I have a local network with a repeater bridge in it. That means I have a network with 2 (wireless) access points, the first one is connected to the modem, the second is to extend the signal. Both are broadcasting using the same SSID. If I am upstairs with my laptop (where I usually am) I have a very...

Re: Is my laptop overheating?

Depending on how old the laptop is and what the warranty period of your battery is, yes I think it would be a reason to get in contact with Dell. Note however that the warranty period of the battery is usually shorter than that of the laptop (usually 1 year). See: http://www.dell.com/content/topics/...

I believe Nvidia's utilities only fully support a few select GPUs. If nvidia-smi doesn't provide you with the information I can't imagine any other utility would either. nvidia-smi doesn't show the gpu load for me neither, but I can get the gpu frequency in conky and there is also some gpu load ind...
