Hi Palladini,

Check the box to make this executable.

Re: How do I make a desktop shortcut?

If you right-click an empty spot on your desktop you will get an option to create a launcher (same as shown above)
Give it a name. In the command field choose Browse and navigate to the Appimage. You will be prompted to add the launcher to the menu.

Re: Removed Brave browser - now Cinnamon crashes

By default grub will boot to the latest installed kernel.
After choosing the previous kernel and booting go to your Update Manager--in the toolbar click View/Linux Kernels.
Click the offending kernel and choose Remove.
After this grub will boot to the working kernel

But that ID-5 I haven't a clue what that is.
It's related to the 'live' disc. After installing the OS it doesn't appear again until you insert another 'live' cd, usb, etc.

Thanks,
Does this indicate the op still has the bootable media loaded?

Re: Removed Brave browser - now Cinnamon crashes

are you now crashing before login screen? before grub, after grub?
If you can get to the grub screen press the arrow down to advanced
You will see different options there. Try booting into an earlier kernel by using the arrow down key

Re: Default Compiz Config for all future versions of Mint MATE

The only issue I have ever encountered with Compiz is desktop focus and I have a workaround. Sorry to see such experienced users disparage this. I do not use the eye candy, but the compositor and window placement makes this manager top my list. Using compiz w MATE20 ram usage 639mb Using marco+compo...

Re: Just need a bit more help please :)

Mostly you will not need drivers for the motherboard--if drivers are required for your graphics they will be offered in your driver management app. No worries--most installs will work perfectly in that respect. Yes, you should have a good backup of irreplaceable files before going further. Preferabl...

Re: Backintime dosen't show my external usb dirve

Hi Jim,
Is your usb not mounted in /media/username?
Choose Computer, then / then navigate to /media/Jim? (put your username here if other than Jim)
Navigate there to see if that partition is indeed mounted.
Then just point Back in Time backups to that path

Reverting seems plausible--but need to know what you are using now.
Please open a terminal and enterinxi -Fxxxz, press enter, then copy/paste the results here.
