Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

Hello, tgm1024. My thought was that if Mint couldn't even figure out how to make a nice design, then how could they do any of the hard stuff right? [...] it doesn't matter in the least how hard anyone tried to establish it as a brand because IMO they are working against themselves and could do far ...

Re: Monthly News – April 2020

This is very good news: the activation of APT recommends by default. Excellent. This restores full compatibility with Ubuntu how-to's. :) We'll see how this works out. It was disabled originally because some apps have recommends which aren't needed and just cause users issues. For example, I know t...

Re: I want to know the deadline for translation for 20.04LTS based Mint Cinnamon.

New translations are pulled and updated pretty much right up the the release of Mint. And sometimes can even happen after if there is a good reason.

Re: Need Terminal to initially set at Zoom In

Running

Code: Select all

gnome-terminal --zoom=2.0
works fine. But the screenshot you are showing is nemo-terminal. That is not the same as running the gnome-terminal application. So I'm not sure any of this is relevant if that is what you are trying to do.

Re: Purpose of LMDE's Debian Stable base?

Again, wouldn't it be easier to build a new Mint from Debian Testing since that is what Ubuntu actually is? Absolutely not. It actually used to be this way. It requires far too much time and maintenance and wasn't being kept up. Focus on just stable bases in the Debian and Ubuntu versions let us fo...

Re: MintBox 3 Review

It is very much a unique and boutique machine. I've never had anything like it. I will say it's the fastest thing I've ever owned. And the fanless design is totally new to me. I really do like it.

Re: Speed, Wow: Mint 19.3 Cinnamon vs Ubuntu Mate 19.10

Most all of the advertised speed tweaks in newer versions of Ubuntu are for Ubuntu main. And they are for GNOME Shell. They will have no effect with regards to Mate performance. If the version number on that OpenGL line is 3.0 or higher, it's probably going to do OK with Cinnamon. If it's 2.0 or hig...

Re: LM 19.3 changes are lacking any user consideration

The choice to switch back to the old style panel is offered right in the welcome screen. This was done just because we knew not all users would like a change so set up a really easy way for people to get back to it.

Re: How to open a python file with linux mint?

You can open a python file in any text editor of your choice. Xed is preinstalled on Mint and is probably nicer than using Nano. You can either right click the file in your file manager and choose "Open with..." or from a terninal

Code: Select all

xed hello.py

Re: New 19.3 Tricia very few desklet/applets availabe?

The third party xlets aren't removed too often. This is mostly done when something no long has a maintainer and kept working properly. This is the case with the things like Icing Task Manager. So reinstalling an older version of Mint won't always enable you to get these applets back.

Don't know if it's the issue here but have seen some cases where the the Gtk/Controls theme you are using can cause this issue.

Go to System settings->Window Tiling. There is a setting there to maximize instead of tile when dragging to the top of the screen.

Re: Tooltip background colour - Can it be changed?

I know quite little about css, but that formatting looks just plain wrong:
That's because he is modifying Mint-Y. The actual css is generated from sass and not hand written that way. But it works fine and can be modified without issue.

I feel like something obvious is getting missed here I'm just not sure what. The changes work here just as expected. Maybe someone else will take a look and see what I'm missing.

Re: Tooltip background colour - Can it be changed?

I just tested here and changing .tooltip.background works as expected. You have to realize that it will only change it for gtk3 apps. The one in cinnamon.css only effects tooltips that come from Cinnamon supplied parts. You also need to change the one I said in the gtk-2.0 folder to effect everythin...

Re: Tooltip background colour - Can it be changed?

In the gtk.css there should be a selector for tootip.background{}. That is where you should change it. For gtk2 there should be something like a style "tooltips". You can change the bg color there.

Thank you. What do you mean by "switching to Rhythmbox controls?" You mean selecting Rhythmbox from the applets "Launch player" menu?
