Re: Missing Grub screen at start up

You can also hold down the Shift key when the oem splash screen appears. This will force a grub screen with no timeout.
Good if you only need grub occasionally.

If you change /etc/default/grub as MrEen has shown then you must also run:

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub 
to make the changes effective.

Re: Mint 19: Installed app not showing up in Start Menu

So here is a plan of approach for now.
Right-click an empty spot on the desktop and choose 'Create a new launcher here'
Name it Qbittorrent
in the Command field enter '/usr/bin/qbittorrent' (without quotes)
Click OK
You will be asked to add to menu, click Yes
That should get your launcher back

Re: Mint 19: Installed app not showing up in Start Menu

Strange. I installed qbittorrent in all 3 Mint desktops to try to duplicate your situation, and afterward installed every update offered in Update Manager. After reboot the qbittorrent icon was still in the menu Applications/Internet. The path to the executable is /usr/bin/qbittorrent and you can ma...

Re: Mint 19: Installed app not showing up in Start Menu

What on God's Green Earth? I had qbittorrent installed and running fine on my system. Then today an update showed up in the Update Manager. I went ahead with it. Since then, I can't find the app in the Menu. It's not listed there. It shows up as installed in Synaptic Package Manager, and I even rei...

Re: Any way to tell update manager to do this?

In the Update Manager you can right-click an offered update and choose to 'Ignore'. You will not be offered further updates for that package. These files are now blacklisted and you can view them via Update Manager Edit/Preferences/Blacklist tab. You can remove packages in this list by highlighting ...

Re: Greetings from Bulgaria

Hello and welcome Neon Black. The upside is that you didn't throw in the towel--you hung in there like a boss, and learned some 'under the hood' things about Linux and Mint in the process. The learning curve seems steeper than it really is in the beginning, but it levels out rather quickly as you go...

Re: Empty right applications panel in mint menu

Synaptic wouldn't give me an option to reinstall Strange. Here on 18.3 Mate I was able to bork the menu within /usr/lib/python2/dist-packages by deleting the file matemenu.x86_64 linux-gnu.so file. This removed not only the third tier (which is how your menu looks) but also remove the second tier o...

Thank you so much!!! Good day! If you have added themes try reverting back to an original Mint theme.

Re: Empty right applications panel in mint menu

Since new users get a fresh set of config files you have eliminated that question mark.

Re: Empty right applications panel in mint menu

Try creating a new user in "Users and Groups" -- get there by typing "user" in the search window of the menu
and Enter.
Then logout, and log back in as the new user. Does the apps menu show normally there?
If so there is a corruption somewhere in your home hidden configuration settings.

The menu you are having problems with is called Mint menu-advanced menu.
Did you try adding a new advanced menu as I suggested above to see if it displays the apps?
