ScangearMP works, but not (anymore) if started from GImp

Hi, I have a Canon Pixma MG6150 wireless MFP, since many years. To use it, since Mint 13, I installed canon linux drivers and used the pixma without issues, both for wireless printing and scanning docs. Since a few months I upgraded my pc and Mint install (currently 18.3), and it still worked perfec...

Re: same monitor, different workspace resolutions

Yes for now I resorted to switching different users, but that has downsides. All users settings are independent, not just screen resolution. I once used on Windows an utility named Dexpot (no typo here : https://www.dexpot.de), which IIRC worked quite well in this respect... I don't really understan...

same monitor, different workspace resolutions

Hi, I'm using cinnamon on 18.3, on a laptop with nvidia gtx1050 card. display is hidpi, ~4k, and even if I already found how to adapt most settings for the high resolution, to avoid microscopic texts/icons, sometimes I really wish to run some tool on a different resolution. Ideally it would be great...

Change resolution on different workspaces?

Hi, not new to Mint, but new to Hidpi laptop monitor, and sometimes struggling with various programs to adapt, found solutions and workarounds in most cases, but this time is different, maybe... I often need to capture screenshots or gif recordings of my desktop (to help others on https://blender.st...

Re: about nemo's remote folders icons

The mount point is created at the moment of mount by gvfs under: /run/user/1000/gvfs/ The "1000" would be your user id number so it may be different. And it would look something like: smb-share:server=192.168.1.2,share=shared if it were an smb share. Thank you very much, I found that folder, and it...

about nemo's remote folders icons [SOLVED]

Hi, I usually mount some remote windows shared folders using regular mount command, and I know a bit about that. But now I tried Nemo's feature (file > connect to server...) allowing to access a (windows/ftp/webdav/ssh) remote share, and that added a "special" icon on the desktop, named like "shared...

Re: is a more recent virt-viewer possible in mint?

Would it be possible to get this kind of updates with "containerized" applications like flatpacks or others similar/alternative ones? I answer myself: I fear that no, it is not possible, at least with flatpak: "With Flatpak, each application is built and run in an isolated environment, which is cal...

Re: is a more recent virt-viewer possible in mint?

All the PPAs I could find for xenial only had v1.0.1, so basically you have two choices. Wait for Mint 19.1 to get v6.0-2 or wait for Mint 19.1 to get v6.0-2. Hi, thanks for checking and feedback. I mean, sharing folders with windows guests has alternatives (samba) but it's about all the new featur...

is a more recent virt-viewer possible in mint?

Hi, my mint 18.3 has virt-viewer 1.0-1 (Ubuntu origin), but it's quite old, and could be missing some features, I think, like: folder sharing with windows hosts. see: https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/spice-devel/2017-April/037244.html The newest virt-viewer version is 6 !

Re: Battery charging/discharging state change delayed by cinnamon?

Hi, thanks for replying. I did some more testing, and update my post above (even changed the title), as it seems (at least just after a reboot) that it is an apparently very long delay by cinnamon... But I fear that this is not always the case, as said above. I'll keep monitoring this, but is there ...

Thank you! But there I read: "Packages from this PPA are supposed to work only on 64-bit boxes (amd64)" and I fear my old lenovo R60e has 32 bit cpu...
