Can't get GTK2 sliders to be correct width in 19.1

As part of upgrading my laptop to 19.1, I've been trying to tweak my preferred theme to use Aqua/gel-style sliders. I have these working quite well on my 17.3 install, but under 19.1, the sliders keep being blocky and wide instead of nicely lozenge-shaped. An example should be attached. sliders_1a.p...

Re: SD card reports 'corrupted' under Android, but Linux reads it fine

The phone usually has no problem reading the card. It is only after I do file operations on the card, especially deleting files, that the phone reports the card as "corrupt".

SD card reports 'corrupted' under Android, but Linux reads it fine

The 64 GB SD card for my Android phone always reports as 'corrupted' when I do any significant file operations on it in Linux and then plug it back into my phone. The card mounts just fine under Linux, and I can read and write things to it there. I've been able to write to it from Linux before witho...

Re: Ctrl + Alt + D / Ctrl + D somehow reversed

So far as I can tell, I am running Marco. When run

Code: Select all

marco --replace
in a terminal, my windows flash and the decorations quickly reset, as expected. That indicates Marco, yes?

Re: Ctrl + Alt + D / Ctrl + D somehow reversed

I've noticed that I can't type the tilde (~) character with my keyboard. When I type shift + ` , I instead get the 'cycle through open windows' menu usually accessed with alt + `. Alt + `, however, produces the same behavior, so I can't actually type a tilde with my keyboard. Other characters work j...

Re: Ctrl + Alt + D / Ctrl + D somehow reversed

And now, Ctrl + Up or Ctrl + Down no longer switches search engine, but instead minimizes or maximizes windows. What is going on? Can anyone help, please?

Re: Ctrl + Alt + D / Ctrl + D somehow reversed

My Keyboard Shortcuts lists no category called Window Management, nor is there a specific command for 'Show Desktop' listed. The Help page does mention the Window Management section, though. What's going on? Is my install missing a package, or...?

How do I do that? I've been unable to find a list of what to put in the 'Command' line for various key combinations.

Re: Ctrl + Alt + D / Ctrl + D somehow reversed

With a guest account, Ctrl + Alt + D does 'show desktop' and Ctrl + D does 'create bookmark', so the problem is somewhere in the settings for this account, but I don't know where. Any ideas what I should try?

Super + D (either Super_L or Super_R) does nothing. I'll try creating a new account and reporting back.

Ctrl + Alt + D / Ctrl + D somehow reversed

On this recently installed 17.3 desktop, the functions for Ctrl + Alt + D / Ctrl + D are somehow reversed. When I'm in Firefox and I hit Ctrl + D to add a bookmark, the system instead shows the desktop; when I'm in Firefox and hit Ctrl + Alt + D, Firefox pops up its "Add bookmark" window. In other a...

Re: New Linux Vulnerability CVE-2015-7547

I had only enabled levels 1 and 2. Enabling level 3 and then downloading the appropriate updates included libc6 version 2.19-0ubuntu6.7. It appears that my system is now updated correctly.

Thank you again, karlchen.

Re: New Linux Vulnerability CVE-2015-7547

Thank you for the explanation, karlchen.

My system shows 2.19-0ubuntu6.6 as the installed version, and 2.19-0ubuntu6.7 as the latest version. I can't mark the 6.7 version for installation (that option is greyed out in the right-click menu). How do I upgrade or fix it?

Re: New Linux Vulnerability CVE-2015-7547

I'm running LM17 Qiana and haven't knowingly seen a patch for this yet. Should I be concerned? Is there a way to check in my update history whether I've already installed the patch without realizing it?

Error mounting external HDD, something wrong with NTFS

While trying to do a major backup to my external 2 TB Toshiba drive, I plugged a scanner into the same USB breakout cable. It apparently borked some switch in the HDD, because the backup operation canceled and I can no longer mount the drive successfully. When I try, I get this message: Error mounti...

How long should Windows 7 take to load?

I'm running LM 17. This machine is dual-boot, with LM 17 and Windows 7. I haven't booted Windows in a long time -- I think it may be a year or more -- and when I just tried booting it up, I just got the flashing cursor on a blank screen. I let it go for more than 10 minutes, but no Windows. When I s...
