Re: Nemo - Problem with sftp bookmark

After rebooting or just killing Nemo, SFTP bookmarks work fine for me, but seemingly randomly now and then they stop working. I think I've seen the error you're referring to, but lately I just got this error, and this was right after booting my computer: Could not display "sftp://user@server/path". ...

Celluloid not handling PLS playlists with remote SMB music files correctly

Steps to reproduce: 1. Create a .pls playlist containing music files from a remote SMB share (haven't tried SSH or other shares). 2. Try to open the playlist file with Celluloid. Problem that occurs: Music doesn't play, and instead I get one error per music file (very annoying, xkill is fastest res...

Re: Mouse selection gap in Nemo between folder icon and name of folder (at least at 4K)

But right now, selection-wise, they are two separate objects. We are forced to either use Gnome's ridiculously limited double scale, which defeats the purpose of having 4k, or increasing the font DPI in Cinnamon. Unfortunately LM is not fully HiDPI compatible due to there being no way to scale icon...

Mouse selection gap in Nemo between folder icon and name of folder (at least at 4K)

Run your mouse over a folder and you'll see that there is a tiny gap between the folder icon and the name of the folder. Clicking while in this gap will not select the folder. I'm used to folder icons+text being treated as one big lump that you can click anywhere on to select, and assume most users ...

Great to hear, thanks! It will be nice not to have to tell users to avoid using certain effects settings due to incompatibility with certain app windows!
The fix rolled out to 19.3 a couple of days ago - it's in muffin 4.4.2.
Confirmed that it's fixed now, thanks!

Re: Full screen games revealing desktop pixels along bottom and right edges of screen in Cinnamon on Mint 19.2

The underlying cause has been fixed in master, but the fix just missed release of the 19.3 stable ISO. I suspect a post Christmas maintenance update to 19.3 will put this problem to bed.

Re: [WORKAROUND] Netgear R6350 router causes slow Internet (16 second web browsing delay) w/ Linux Mint 19, newer distro

Workaround found! Please see the edited first post for the info, but basically the solution is either enabling IPv6 in the router, or disabling IPv6 completely in Linux Mint via GRUB or sysctl. That means the actual problem is still there, and the older networking stack in Linux Mint 19 is still cau...

Re: Netgear R6350 router causes slow Internet (16 second web browsing delay) w/ Linux Mint 19.1/2, newer distros are OK

Try installing latest kernel of 5.3 series from update manager--view--kernels. Reboot and test. Already did that, doesn't help, but thanks for the suggestion. It seems to be something else in the older networking stack of Ubuntu 18.04 is having problems with this router. Tried the vanilla 4.15 kern...

[WORKAROUND] Netgear R6350 router causes slow Internet (16 second web browsing delay) w/ Linux Mint 19, newer distros OK

WORKAROUND FOUND: It looks like the hang is due to older Linux network stacks trying to connect on IPv6 first, then timing out after ~15 seconds and moving to IPv4 which works. Newer distros don't have this issue. This Netgear router has IPv6 disabled by default. There are two workarounds for this ...

Nice bug report, thanks! :D

I wonder if they'll push out a fix for them in 19.2 or wait for 19.3.

Found a second bug with Effects. In System Settings > Themes, you click on any of the five sections and a window pops up with the available options normally. But, in System Settings > Effects you change "Effects style" to "Fly down, up", it will make it so the window that pops up in Themes immediate...

Re: Full screen games revealing desktop pixels along bottom and right edges of screen in Cinnamon on Mint 19.2

I get the same as you so I'll update the bug report. I've tried to narrow down by enabling the Customise option, and tweaking various options, but can't seem to narrow it down to one specific setting. Recreating Scale as Cinnamon does fix the issue though. So you mean even when setting custom setti...

No worries, that's helpful info. Anything that can help narrow down the common factor will help refine the bug report and make it easy for the devs to reproduce and hopefully fix. Yes, that's my intention. If there are any other ways I can help, let me know, and thanks so much for helping with this...

Re: Full screen games revealing desktop pixels along bottom and right edges of screen in Cinnamon on Mint 19.2

In Cinnamon open the Effects GUI. Try either disabling Windows effects or switching Effects Style from Cinnamon to another choice.
