Re: Lenovo ThinkCentre Wifi Not working

I have a ThinkCentre M710q, and it is using the iwlwifi driver. I do not recall having to install drivers, but if I did I most likely used the instructions from the Pjotr's Easy Linux Tips Project. https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/intel-wifi.html Do you see any iwlwifi entries when you en...

I tried to run simple cd /downloads

Try cd Downloads. Linux is case-sensitive and the / is not necessary.

Re: Zoom tips

Think about what everyone in the meeting will see. I always launch Cheese before every video chat. I do not want a distracting (or NSFW) background. Also, avoid sitting front of a brightly lit window or wall - it really messes with the exposure and color balance settings. A ring light is a good inve...

Re: To Update or not to update, that is the question...

With a few exceptions I apply updates as they appear. I delay for a couple of days any updates to the kernel, graphics and network drivers, and a few system-ish packages (ImageMagick* immediately comes to mind) to give the problems a chance to surface, and they get applied only after I create a Time...

Re: Storyboarder appimage doesn't launch

Storyboarder is an application that does not come in any other kind of package, leaving me with an appimage that doesn't run no matter what I do. There is a problem with this AppImage, and an issue was filed three days ago. The v2.0.1 AppImage launches without problem, but it takes nearly 30 second...

Thanks for quick response - afraid not, it was on icon view
Oops. Calling it the "Show Icons icon" was a mistake - it is the Show Thumbnails button, and it is between Search and Icon View buttons on the toolbar. Try clicking it.

Is this just me?
On the right side of the tool bar, to the right of the magnifying glass Search icon, is the Show Icons icon. You clicked it by accident and changed the view. Click it again.

Re: How get the apropiate icon shown in the panel when the appimage is opened?

Where did you get your icon? I got tired of looking for the icons on its gitlab site I first dowloaded LibreWolf, so I got it by launching the AppImage from the terminal using the --appimage-extract option. You can find the icons at https://gitlab.com/librewolf-community/branding/-/tree/master/icon...

Sorry, I cannot reproduce the problem. I wonder if it might be theme-related.

I have only ever used the AppImage, but I would think the behavior is the same for the DEB, flatpak and Snap. When I right-click the icon that is min...
