Re: Sugestion: window tiling automatic resize and highlighting in xreader

As far as #1. Have you ever tried that? It's works in all mutter based DE's. That means Elementary, Budgie, Gnome-shell, etc.

Last time I tried it, the performance of it is extremely bad. Bad enough that I'm surprised it was actually shipped working like it is.

If you decide to edit them, use inkscape.

I highly doubt this will ever be implemented. There would have to be a really good reason.

The other pathbar can be accessed in the Gtk file chooser/saver by using Ctrl+L over the window.

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 is better than 19 ... Why? I hope main developer see this

I'd like to point out that Mint devs do occasionally read threads here ;) I'd also like to point out that I see zero useful info being given in this one. It sounds like a rant plain and simple. Nothing we can actually use to help improve things.

Re: Installing KDE Plasma on Mint 19 Tara (Cinnamon)

I often have multiple DE's installed for testing purposes with no issue. I've never tried mixing KDE and Cinnamon but have seen people report issues with doing so on several occasions. If the plan is to install KDE and get rid of the original desktop, I personally would start with something besides ...

Re: Shutter icon disappear and the reappear in panel

Do you by chance have support for indicators enabled in System settings->General? If you do, try turning it off. I use shutter all the time and I've not seen the issue.

No. There are no plans for a Mate edition. This has been stated many times on the blog and probably talked about here a good bit.

Re: Washed out desktop background image in Mint 19 Virtualbox VM

Open a terminal and try

Code: Select all

gsettings set org.cinnamon.muffin background-transition 'none'
That setting was added specifically for working around issues with the background in vbox. Hopefully that helps.

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...

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 ...

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 :)
