Remove a system tray applet

Actually I want to remove 4 of them. I don't know how I installed the sticky notes applet. I don't want it installed but in trying the uninstall it I installed it 3 more times. Would someone help me to uninstall them? I'm using KDEMint.

Re: I sudo apt upgrade in my terminal, then it proceeded to rename "linux mint 19.2 cinnamon" to "Ubuntu" in GRUB

In spite of what grub says, did you check to see what system the operating system says that it's running? That can be done by entering one command in the terminal. Unfortunately, I don't remember what that command is. I'm sure that you can just use Google to find what command you need. It may be thi...

If so, should I install a version outside of ...

I 'm not sure what I did recently with my settings but I haven't had the repeating problem for a while now. My wife has a Mac and she was using the mail program that was installed with the system. She had p...

Re: Screen turns black

Okay, thanks for the suggestions. I upgrade to 18.3 and I upgraded the kernel. I'll have to wait and see if it corrects the black screen problem since that seems to be unpredictable.

Screen turns black

I'm running Serena Serena 18.1 KDE. Occasionally the screen turns black and there is nothing that I've been able to do to get rid of the black screen. I have to reboot. Any suggestions?

Re: added noise when recording desktop

I can't say anything about your sound problem but I'd suggest that you try VLC to record your video from the browser.

If you use the Chrome Browser you might want to use the add-on Video Downloader.

Re: Blank Screen Linux Kernel 4.13.0-26 and -31 on Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64-Bit

Update Manager offered me a new kernel today for Linux Mint 18.3 which I haven't installed yet. You should remove some of the old kernels, keeping at least one that does boot successfully. After that, you can try booting with the kernel that didn't before or you can try ignoring it and try the newly...
