Is XFCE dead?

I'm using Mint 17.3 with XFCE and I like it very much, only some minor glitches but it is OK and stable. But when I look at the change log: Version 4.10 was released on April 28, 2012 and version 4.12 came out on Feb. 28, 2015. I don't see any significant improvements recently. Is this project in a ...

17.3 XFCE Abmelden

Hallo, ich nutze XFCE unter LM 17.3. Wenn ich mich abmelden will (Whiskermenü > Abmelden > Abmelden) bekomme ich neuerdings kein neues Anmeldefenster, der Bildschirm wird schwarz und ich sehe nur den Mauszeiger. Mir ist aufgefallen, dass dieses Verhalten ausschließlich bei HTML-Basierten Themes für ...

Re: Filezilla 3.18 auf Linux Mint

Hallo Brandy, also Filezilla 3.7.3 ist ja Bestandteil der offiziellen Paketquellen in Mint 17.3. Wenn Du eine aktuellere Version (3.18) installieren möchtest, musst Du auf fremde Paketquellen zurückgreifen. Die Vorgehensweise wäre dann so, dass Du Filezilla 3.7.3 (sofern noch installiert) z.B. über ...

Re: Auf der Suche nach einem VPN-Anbieter

Hallo,

danke für die Infos! Ja, ist bei mir noch aktuell, denn ich habe mich noch immer nicht entschieden.

Zur Zeit nutze ich Tor wenn ich die IP verschleiern will, ein VPN ist aber in einigen Punkten bequemer.

Ich schaue mir das noch mal an!

Re: Screen closing while watching a stream

Same here, I'm running Mint 17.3 with Xfce. I always thought that there is no way to fix it because it is associated to the X-Window system. So, it's not a bug, it's a feature :D

Re: Mint 17.3 "XCFE" and coming Out of Suspend??

Try the following:

under "Settings > Keyboard" create a keyboard-shortcut to the command

Code: Select all

xrandr --auto
If the laptop does not wakeup, press the shortcut buttons.

Hope that helps!

The 'is my Mint safe?' thread (after Feb 20th hacks)

Don't get me wrong, I really appreciate this ... but I wish this kinda statement comes from an "official" mint representative.

If you did not download your ISO image on last Saturday (February 20th) and installed your system with it, you are not affected by the hijack. Don't forget, they hacked the forum, our e-mail addresses are already for sale on the dark net. So be prepared for some more spam now an then :? This sucks...

Hallo,

öffne das Bild doch mal in einem richtigen Bildbearbeitungsprogramm (Gimp, Darktable...) und rotiere es dort.

Dann unter einem anderen Namen abspeichern und als Hintergrundbild auswählen.

Thanks for your reply. Meanwhile I did some "research" too and came to the same conclusion: To install the latest version is the right approach. I also learned that there might be some incompatibilities between version 1.9.x and 2.5.x so moving back to the old version from the repos is not recommend...

This is a matter of personal taste. You simply don't need Kleopatra for this simple task.

Since we all are "Linux geeks", we should prefer the terminal. :D
