LM 19.3 MATE 64bit - How to start OpenVisualTraceroute with JAVA 8, please?

Re: LM 19.3 MATE 64bit - How to minimize to tray on start of Skype?

Indeed, that's the problem. That option doesn't work. EDIT: Meanwhile, I added the following command to my bash: xdotool windowactivate --sync $(xdotool search --name ".Skype.") key --clearmodifiers --delay 100 "alt+F4" It does close the Skype window, but not instantly. I have to wait about 16 secon...

Can somebody tell me, how to use the update manager of Feren OS properly, please? I'm running Feren OS in a Virtualbox. Seems to be fine, but I just don't get it how to use the update manager. When I point to its tray icon, it is green, telling me the OS is up-to-date, which I don't believe, as I'm ...

If I want to send a fax using HPLIP (or HPLIP-GUI), I can create a cover and add some jpeg's (scanned documents, for example), but adding pdf's doesn't work.

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...

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

Ok, I see, but... ./ is some kind of a path, and this path means "open the following file in the current folder (EDIT:...or do with that file what the added option says)", so why would I need this, when I'm already inside of that folder and was using the Open in terminal option?

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

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. EDIT: What I mean is, I can execute AppImages, but I cannot treat them as archives, which means I cannot extract any conte...

Re: LM 19.3 MATE 64bit - Where is the explanation of the icons of mIntupdate gone?

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.

The Mint update manager used to have an explanation of the icons and their meanings ( I mean the type of each update).

Re: Replace HDD by SSD? Anything to pay attention to?

As to names: no, you wouldn't be able to change names like "sda" and "sdb"; they are kernel-assigned and depend only on discovery order: if your SSD will be the only SATA device then it will be "sda" in the same manner as now your HDD is. When I talked about "changing names", what I meant is this: ...

If dd is too slow, what other tool would you recommend instead? As for the "names", what I meant was sda, sdb, sdc, ... etc... The copied UUID's shouldn't matter (hopefully!) since it is only a replacement of the drive, and the old HDD is not intended for further usage within the notebook. In fact, ...

Replace HDD by SSD? Anything to pay attention to?

I've got a HP 250 G5 notebook with a 1TB HDD inside, which I want to replace with a 1TB SSD in order to make the notebook faster. Since it is a multi boot system with Win10 and two Ubuntu 18.04 based distros (all of them are 64 bit), I think I'm probably going to do it by purchasing a HDD/SSD case w...

When I try the 1st one, there's no Skype or skypeforlinux package available, and the deb is the same version as the installed one. So looks like there is no update, it's just the repo which is not available anymore. I removed both the stable repo and the partner repo, but now I wonder, how do I get ...
