Re: Multi-monitor high-dpi scaling issues

Per monitor scaling currently isn't possible. It's a limitation of X11. It's one of the supposed advantages of moving to Wayland but that also brings other issues. May I ask what the "Auto" scaling option is for? I have a 4k screen and setting it to "Normal" or "Auto" seem to be the same. Nothing a...

Re: What sends noobs running back to Windows?

This .. and the fact that a significant proportion of these people will simply go out and buy a new computer when it stops working, rather than fix it or actually reinstall the OS. One of the most sane things said in this thread. Most people don't care what OS they are running. They also have zero ...

Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

Thought that went without saying. You'd think so but from reading this thread I think maybe it did need to be said ;) for example, Ubuntu MATE comes with the mate-tweak tool with a nifty dropdown to easily switch between a few pre-defined and very different panel layouts, Mint MATE has nothing like...

Re: Cinnamon 3.8.x - Mint 19 Additional Window Borders / Metacity Themes

It looks like the Ravefinity themes are no longer being worked on and were never updated to support newer gtk versions. There is nothing we can do about that.

Re: Microsoft to start charging monthly fee for Windows 7...

I honestly fail to see the issue here. Windows 7 has been around a long time. It's nearing EOL. That's how it works. It was already supported much longer than many Linux distros. This issue just seems a little like a click-baity excuse for people to rant and type the word Microsoft wrong :)

It's just in the repo, not in your computer; in other words, it's not on your property. Just being offered in your local shopping ma...

Yeah, it properly hilights in Nemo. I'll try to fix that. As for the green... well I can't ditch that ;) That choice was made long before my time. Color variations are planned for Mint-Y though so people will have a choice. Thanks for nice demo of the problem. Do you happen to know the name of the e...

Unless I'm missing what he's talking about, Nemo doesn't suffer from the issue. That means it needs to be fixed.

Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

default theme could be more appealing, and fit widely with what average people could accept I'm not sure whether I'm average, but I like this green theme just fine. It's calm. If I'm not mistaken, wasn't the default changed awhile back after some upgrade and people complained that it wasn't green a...

Re: Maya & Lightwave - suggest Linux native alternatives?

It's been awhile since I've done 3d graphics work but Houdini runs awesome under Linux. It's a first class Linux application. Not sure how good the support is for the filetypes you want to import but might be worth investigating.

Re: Why oh Why can't we make Linux better looking

It's a Qt-based desktop and feels snappier than any edition that Mint has got with a memory footprint is a bit higher than Xfce but far less than MATE. Performance is flawless in common mode, the effects mode is a bit heavier on the requirements but looks very smooth. It isn't really a Qt based des...

Re: Linux Mint and laptops

How many tabs do you routinely keep open in your browser (2GB?!?!?!?)
I have Firefox with only 7 tabs running. While Firefox itself is is using around 750mb it's also spawned 4 other process's all between 500 and 700mb. Bring it's total to well over 2Gb.
