Re: Linux mint in English but date and currency in Dutch Fle

I think everything will change to the language you set in environment
Maybe you can change it in the program itself
Only a test will show it

Re: Problem : Spotify album in 3 sizes on your desktop via c

Isn't ironic.

When I was about to power down, realised i wanted to make a backup with the progress, I found images in my root.

It has been a PATH problem.

When pointing to ~/.conky/Aurora/scripts/spotify-api/lastpic problems stopped.

Sorry SOLVED

Sending an update to sourceforge soon.

Re: Gnome Terminal Scroll Back Unlimited via Command Line

Thank for pointing me in the right direction

is seems this was a boolean and i looked up the name so I changed it to this

Code: Select all

gconftool-2 -t bool --set /apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/scrollback_unlimited 1 

This works.

Thanks
