Display .DNG( RAW) thumbnails in Nemo

Somewhere in my memory in Mint 18.3 Cinnamon, I thought I was able to display raw picture thumbnails (DNG) in nemo (just like .jpg's) Now that I've moved to 19, cinnamon I can't recall how this was accomplished. Setting or extensions?

Re: Backup Tool in 18.3

Thanks for the tip Mike. I use 'dpkg --get-selections' when I do daily backups and I thought I was replacing multiple tabs with a single tab but xed was replacing with spaces and I didn't even consider the deinstall thing. It really shouldn't be this much work...

Re: Backup Tool in 18.3

I have the same problem...
Also, if I run the 'dpkg --get-selections' output to a .list file, restore Software Selection says "The selected file is not a valid software selection."

Re: moire (maybe) in Pix, xviewer

Well, this problem turns out to be my damn fault!... I shoot almost always in high resolution JPG and RAW. Some where I bumped up the default sharpening for JPG's a notch or two too much. Went back to RAW files and processed through darktable with little sharpening and the resulting JPG's look fine ...

[SOLVED]moire (maybe) in Pix, xviewer

Using Mint18 Cinnamon. I have Pentax K30, 16mp camera. I can't say that this happened in previous image viewers (Mint 16,17), but I get a patterning, that may be moire' in xviewer 1.06, imagemagic 6.8.9-9, pix 1.06, and to lesser extents in gimp 2.8.16, but I don't see it in Rawtherapee4.2 or Darkta...

Software Manager says I don't have internet connection

Installed LMDE2 on my Mint 17.3 in Oracle VB 5.0.2 with 5.0.10 extension. If I try to add software from Software Manager, it says I don't have an internet connection, yet firefox comes up fine and I can browse. All other Mint releases in VB work fine. I'm new to LMDE, but have used Mint other Ubuntu...

Re: floppy disk device shows up in nemo and 'disks'

I found this solution on unix.stackexchange.com

Code: Select all

echo "blacklist floppy" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-floppy.conf
sudo rmmod floppy
sudo update-initramfs -u
Seems to have done the trick.

Since I had not forgotten the su pasword, I used the 'sudo usermod -a -G sudo newusername' method to give the new user sudo power.

root password no longer works

I installed Mint16 to a portable hard drive. In my infinite wisdom to create a user that matched a windows account, I created a new Linux account and deleted the original user, the user created on install. Is original user password also the root password? I remember it, but it doesn't work in my new...
