pdf file download

When I downloaded PDF files I would get a window pop-up to ask what to do: Save or Open with Document Viewer. Recently I was downloading a series of PDF files and to save time I checked the box to not ask that question again. Turns out that now I never know if the PDF file has downloaded from the si...

GRUB2 UEFI SecureBoot vulnerability - 'BootHole'

Has LInux MInt made a fix for the BootHole bug that was announced recently? And would a normal home user be in any danger of it?

Re: window borders

The problem is that I have many themes in my Documents section under .themes, but I am not able to get them into the themes section of my systems settings window. All I have there are themes you can get from add/remove section in the systems setting window.

window borders

How do you enable new window borders in the system settings? I'm at a loss. Just installed LM 20 and have not been able to get these settings enabled that I see in share/themes or in .themes in home folder. I was able to do it before in 19.3 but have lost my ability to do so now. What happened is wh...

Re: themes not showing in themes settings

Thanks for the feedback. I looked at the file structure under themes folders and now it all makes sense. I now understand why some appear and others do not under the various categories for theme settings. As I understand your last statement regarding mint 19.x that for windows borders there must be ...

Linux Mint 18.3, Cinnamon. I have many themes showing in home/user/.themes and usr/share/themes that do not show up in any of the categories of the themes settings, which are, Windows Borders, Icons, Controls, Desktop, etc. Why don't they show up? I'm particularly concerned about theme settings for ...

<SOLVED>Audacity manual

I installed Audacity from the Mint repository and from the Audacity website it indicated that I could download the manual and unzip it into a 'help' folder in /usr/share/audacity directory and it would then be open from the help menu. I created the 'help' folder as indicated and unzipped the manual ...

Re: Language flag in panel missing

Thanks Cosmo,

I did have the applet for Keyboard installed for the panel.

What I forgot was in Keyboard 'layouts' to add the other languages to English. When I did so the flags appeared.

[SOLVED]Language flag in panel missing

I use English normally, but on occasion I use German and Spanish. I have all 3 languages installed but the language flag does not appear in the panel. I have Mint 18.3 Cinnamon. Previously in 18.1 the flag always appeared in the panel. I don't see an applet to add for language flag, only a keyboard ...

Re: lightdm settings not working

Sorry, I should have said a 6X5 window rather than panel. I followed your instructions and upon reboot there is no menu>administration (or preferences) > item for configuring lightdm settings. There is the Login Window settings, but that is what I have now and have set my preferences but they are no...

Re: lightdm settings not working

The mentioned program items are all installed. I checked to see if lightdm and mdm were installed with 'apt-cache policy lightdm mdm' and got the following lightdm Installed: 1.18.3-0ubuntu1.1 mdm Installed: (none) So, I'm assuming I do not have to do 'apt remove mdm' I've never been asked to select...
