Re: Window focus is utterly broken

Complete stab in the dark here ... but have you tried swapping some hardware out/in? I'd start with the mouse, and then the keyboard. Try a different USB port for both. Also, try unplugging some other USB things. You say you think it might be the monitor setup ... so unplug the TV and see if it make...

Re: Weather App

AZgl1500 : so, it's not only me. I live in Canada and go to the national weather service and it's fine. I also have used weather underground ... and they all report similar temps ... but this app is just wrong :)

Re: Weather App

powerwagon75 : I'm using the same app as you are. And, yes, I have the correct WOEID. I just think that whatever server this WOEID points to is getting its info wrong. No idea why. If I go to Mate, the app there has a menu which guides you though continent, country, etc. and it has the correct info.

Weather App

I have the weather app in my panel and it sort of works ... but the temperature is wrong. I think it might be 'cause whatever station Yahoo is using is wrong ... but it is the only one for my area. Other desktops, ie. Mate, use different weather apps and they report correct information. So, can I us...

Re: Notification Applet Font

Thanks for the try :) I just spent a few minutes playing with gnome-color-chooser, but it doesn't seem to have any effect on any of the different bits and pieces of the Mate desktop. Odd, since I thought that Mate was essentially a gnome wrapper.

Notification Applet Font

Is it possible to change the font size for the notification applet. I'm running "notification-area-applet" which I think is the default for the mate desktop, but I'm not sure. I've tried to change the fonts in the "look and feel" options, but it doesn't seem to make any different (not sure which, if...

zero is what is returned.

I've posted this topic to the github folks. Maybe they have something to add. Hopeful.

Far as I know, dist-upgrade is pretty much the same as doing it from the update-manager. And, that would be my preference. But since neither method does anything it really doesn't matter :)
