Re: LM 19.3 MATE 64bit - How to update Kodi 18.9 to 19.0, please?

You were referring to xfce, but I was talking about Kodi on a Mint MATE. I don't dare to install another desktop, because I'm afraid of ruining my entire MATE. So, what is it I have to do to fix this for MATE? For whatever you suggest or recommend, please, keep in mind that this above mentioned pvr ...

Re: LM 19.3 MATE 64bit - How to update Kodi 18.9 to 19.0, please?

Yes, the best way to fix this is to go back to Kodi 18.9 and reinstall version 3.10.0-1~bionic of the add-on.
But since the Kodi profile is also affected by this issue, you should have a backup of your profile.

I would definitely not recommend to install this update.

LM 19.3 MATE 64bit - How to update Kodi 18.9 to 19.0, please?

Today, I got some Mint updates and among them, there was Kodi 19. But kodi-pvr-iptvsimple, which is the most important one for me, stopped working. Kodi 18.9 and that add-on have been present on my Mint already, since the day that version of Kodi came out. That add-on used to be version 3.10.0-1~bio...

Re: Is Mint on a "Surface Book 3" possible?

That link is not referring to my device, sorry. "Surface Book 3" and "Surface 3" are different devices. EDIT: Let me add that meanwhile, I managed to disable "Secure Boot" within the UEFI and to turn off BitLocker. Now there are two problems: 1. Unfortunately, there's a...

Re: Is Mint on a "Surface Book 3" possible?

I don't even know if that device allows USB booting.
I want to be sure that it will work, because it was way too expensive to risk any damage and I cannot even give it back because it was a Xmas present.

Is Mint on a "Surface Book 3" possible?

Could anybody tell me, if it's possible to install Mint on such a device, please? I'm not sure about that, because this device has TPM and according to some information on the web there seems to be the danger of destroying that TPM chip irreversibly. Unfortunately, there's very few information about...

The GParted window is too small to display all the information about the existing partitions, so I'd like to resize the GParted window permanently . Dragging the edges doesn't work, because these changes are forgotten when GParted is started the next time. Is there any way to do this permanently, pl...

Re: LM 19.3 MATE 64bit - Can't extract AppImages. Why?

Thank you! Finally, I understand (hopefully!). So if I understand this right, Mint is looking at each of these paths for the wanted executable (according to what is defined for $PATH), i.e. in each of them, but not the current one. Therefore, if you want to tell Mint to run the executable from insid...

Execution was already enabled prior to my question, so, the execution of an AppImage does in fact work and always did. What doesn't work are just the options as mentioned above.

What I'm actually looking for is the legend of the icons, which represent the types of updates.
I don't mean the window, where you can choose which levels of updates you want to be installed.
