Re: mint 19 cinnamon - adapta theme

Whenever you add a new source to get software from, such as a PPA, you need to run apt update not upgrade. Then you can install software from the new source.

Re: Manually set xed text editor preferences

However, I unfortunately went blind a couple years ago, and the Edit->Preferences menu within text editor is unreadable by the Orca screen reader. I can hear the toggle buttons, but can't read what I'm toggling. Is it the menu or the actual preferences window that don't work with Orca? Sounds like ...

Re: What Standard Tweaks and apps do you always add to a fresh OS install?

Not much actually. I pretty much use the system as installed. Install all the things I need for development and that's about it. Probably why my system seems to be so much more stable and lacks a lot of the issues I see people having ;) Over time my installs usually become a mess of installed stuff ...

Re: Mint compatibility with laptops

I don't own one of those specific machines but I do own 3 other HP machines. All of them "just work" with Linux Mint. The newest is about a year old and has a touchscreen that seems to work just fine under Mint Cinnamon though I'll admit I'm not a heavy user of the feature. Someone mentioned the 8th...

Re: Coding in Mint?

For Mint specific stuff, there is a scripts and bash forum here. Probably a reasonable place to post questions.

Re: Which team removed Disks menu?

because I am logged in on a (uhm) Windows 7 system. Shame on you :) That menu is called the Appmenu in Gnome terms. In gnome shell it is moved from the applications titlebar to the top panel. Outside of Gnome shell it's supposed to display in the apps header bar. Different DE's handle this in diffe...

Re: Which team removed Disks menu?

Yay, for people making assumptions. I don't remember this ever even being brought up in the Mint team. Mostly likely it was some sort of oversight. You could take it as a compliment... people consider Mint devs to be so 1337 / professional that they never ever make mistakes and oversights are not a...

Re: Compile nemo master from source - how to ?

A little more just for the sake of completeness for anyone else coming across this thread. If you are modifying the .js files in Cinnamon you can simply copy them to the proper place in /usr/share/cinnamon and the restart Cinnamon from the Alt+f2 dialog to test your changes. You don't need to do a f...

hi folks...im going to assume that the missing upper left icon for disk menu is a mint decision since my peppermint 9 (ubuntu based 18.04 bionic) has the icon button intact on "disks" manager...i too, when seeing it was missing on mint, was shocked that it WAS missing...DAMIEN Yay, for people makin...

Re: Why flatpack apps are so huge in size

Right. Slap-fest it is. Well I hope you're directing some of them at yourself. The info shown there is NOT wrong. On a new Linux Mint install none of the runtimes are already installed. Installing Skype requires downloading the following runtimes runtime/org.freedesktop.Platform/x86_64/1.6 runtime/...

Re: What sends noobs running back to Windows?

what reasons do you think send new people running away from Linux? Based on what I've read recently in a few forums and Fakebook groups, I think the main reason for that are the tarball archives, because the noobs can't install them by double click and their brains crash with BSOD. So they choose t...

Re: MATE ‘Installed’ But Not Appearing

Hi, frankmit. You choose between Cinnamon and Mate in your graphical login screen , not at boot time. Karl Yep in the box that show your username and the place to enter the password, there is also a logo. For Cinnamon it looks like a little mountain. Click that and you should see the option to log ...

Re: Safety in Linux Mint

it is also true that the Ubuntu operating system, also attempted to implement a similar idea, and that too, was met with a seriously large outcry about that monitoring from their system. Ok, if you're going to make statements like this, I feel like they should represent actual facts. For one, Ubunt...

Somewhere, in the past, I installed something that is screwing up 18.3 Cinnamon from shutting down fast like it used to. I've run into some apps that cause this. telegram-desktop was one. If I remember correctly, if the window was open it take Cinnamon forever to shutdown. If it was minimized to th...

Re: How to NUKE low-contrast style in Cinnamon 19?

Obviously you are fully entitled to your opinions. Just as you are to use something that "just works", as you put it. As for the Mint-X themes, did you try looking in the most obvious place? You said you are on Cinnamon so that would be cinnamon-settings->themes, or just "themes" in the search box. ...
