new re-install LM18.3-64 links opening in new firefox instance, instead of tab

I just reinstalled LM18.3-6 Cinnamon. I run firefox 48 in 'portable mode", ie., from a directory other than /usr/bin. In the new installation, now a new instance (or new firefox window) opens whenever I click a link in some other application, such as Thunderbird or my PDF reader. This doesn't happen...

Re: fileSystem is full

This is actually a pretty tricky thing to do. Here's a nice tutorial: How To Dual Boot Linux Mint And Windows 10 [Beginner’s Guide] The basic idea is to set up two or more partitions: one for Windows, and the other for Linux. (I set up a third, for data, but leave that for now). This is discussed in...

SMS via LTE 4G 'wingle'

I just upgraded my internet connection from 3G to 4G. Under 3G I was using a Huawei 173 dongle and modem-manager-gui which suited my needs exactly. But now the only SMS capability I have is via the wingle's control panel (accessed via the browser to http://192.168.0.1), so there are no notifications...

Re: <solved> nemo and thunar suddenly started hanging

Well, Mr. Cat, sometimes I've posted queries that received no responses, so after a while I usually take the posts down, but all the while I wonder if I have bad breath or something. Now it turns out that you don't respond if there's a bad config. It would be nice, therefore, if you could respond to...

For example, I avoid offering assistance if the inxi output indicates certain configurations are present. There was absolutely nothing wrong with John's request for it. Nothing.
Just wondering--- was there anything in my configuration that would cause you to avoid offering assistance?

Re: nemo and thunar suddenly started hanging

Network? Nothing that I know of. Maybe I ran into a flaky site when I was browsing using Tor without stopping Javascript.

At any rate, I"ve solved the problem: I re-installed LM18.3-64.

Thanks to all

Re: nemo and thunar suddenly started hanging

Let me guess - it just magically started working again? :roll: You wish. Me too. BTW thunar will run up to about 5 mins before it hangs. ps aux shows thunar & nemo both running. Now that I've run Nautilus (I needed SOMETHING to handle file activities) nemo-desktop doesn't have any effect, and I'm s...

<solved> nemo and thunar suddenly started hanging

See my signature for versions. This is happening on the desktop. Suddenly I'm getting the message 'not responding' and nemo freezes. I tried reinstalling all the nemo stuff using synaptic, but no luck. Rebooting doesn't help. I just did an update (tiff), if that's of any help. At any rate nemo was w...

CLOSED (minor bug) Menu launchers not copied properly to panel

I have added some custom launchers to the menu, but some of them do not copy properly to the panel. Example: - title is 'Komodo Edit 8" - icon is "/ddr/prog/64/Komodo-Edit-8/share/icons/komodo128.png" - command is "/ddr/prog/64/Komodo-Edit-8/bin/komodo" On the main menu I right-click "Komodo Edit 8"...

SOLVED boot errors--does my notebook need warranty service?

I've had this notebook for a while now but haven't used it much. I've always seen some messages flash briefly during boot, but the system seems to be working OK, although a bit slow. I finally dug into /var/syslog, and found these cryptic errors: Jan 9 19:40:19 note kernel: [ 0.042836] mce: [Hardwar...

SOLVED permission denied ssh & rsync (but the solution seems wrong)

I have two machines which were running LM18.2-64, but I just upgraded to 18.3 using the Upgrade option on Update Manager's Edit menu. Both machines are now running lm18.3-64 cinnamon 3.6.7. I am again having problems with rsync on the two computers, which are connected by null modem ethernet cable. ...

SOLVED cannot save preferences with nemo as root

I do not like icon view. When I open nemo as root, then change preferences to list or compact view, it switches back to the greatly unwanted icon view when I change folders . How to prevent this? I don't mind changing it once per session, but it's a nuisance to change it for every folder. Any settin...
