[SOLVED] Brave Browser and Waterfox Browser in LMDE4

For everybody looking to install Brave: don't use the instructions that were posted for LMDE3 in this forum. Instead, use this link, the info you're looking for is right at the top (Release Channel Installation, Debian 9+):

Re: "Open as root" option missing ??

@antikythera: same for me in Cinnamon (before I installed Mate)

@all41: I already had Pluma installed. Now I uninstalled xed, which made Pluma the only text editor. No difference. Context item unfortunately still not there.

Re: "Open as root" option missing ??

Even the instructions "Edit or Open Ubuntu Files and Folders as root Administrative" in this link https://www.how2shout.com/linux/open-ub ... root-user/ don't work in that the menu option "edit as administrator" is not created ?

Re: "Open as root" option missing ??

Don't do what ?
Is there or is there not supposed to be an option to open files as root/admin in LMDE4, as there was in the past ?

[SOLVED ]"Open as root" option missing in LMDE4 + Mate ??

Just installed LMDE4 + Mate. The file system appears to lack the option to "open as root" or "open as admin" in the right-click menu. It was there in LMDE1+2 (Mate) and 3 (Cinnamon). It's not just not active, but the option is missing alltogether. Folder Properties show the owner...

Re: MATE instead of Cinnamon in LMDE4

Thank you, yes it did, it just needed some fiddling. I think this had to do with my login-settings, but my .dmrc file was not executable and I was unable to change it. So I had to - very unelegantly - create it manually, make it executable, then purge Cinnamon, and then restart. Which did the trick....

Re: [Solved - kind of] Cinnamon Drawer ?

Something must have been wrong with my first install of cinnamon (though I have no idea why), but drag & drop worked on other installations. Lack of a general drawer still a problem, but at least the sidebar is workable.

Run launchers as admin ?

LMDE2 MATE desktop launchers had a right-click option "open as administrator" that appears to not exist in LMDE3 Cinnamon ? Would anybody know how to run a launcher as admin ? I can't just add a "sudo" as I don't get prompted for a password. Ex.: drop cache commands sync; echo 1 ...

Thanks so much, you have the patience of a saint. - Make your vertical panel - o.k. - add a panel launcher applet to it - o.k. - drag your launchers to the new panel launcher applet - no dragging possible. - You may need to right click on the panel launcher applets to enable dragging in their settin...
