Re: My review of Mint 18

I don't like that Mint assumes you're necessarily scarce on power, enabling power management by default and making it a real pain to turn off. ( I.e.

This is becoming an obsession. The main problem for me is xterm does not give me the options of mate-terminal. I...

Re: mate-terminal blinks on and exists

Positive update:

I right clicked on the terminal icon and had it open as administrator and it opened the window. I was able to change the profile.
When I exited and tried to open as user, it still blinked off.

Any one know where to go from here.

I need to know the location of any setup or configuration files. My next route is to remove anything from .b...
