Re: What do the percentages mean next to wifi network names?

It's a representation of signal strength from the router. Anything over 30% is OK, anything over 50% is Good. You'd probably need your router within a couple of meters of the machine to hit 80% +

Re: nemo zoom level doesn't stay the same

Hi, run the command below in a terminal to fix those ownership issues. Log off and back on. Check your nemo preferences and see if it behaves itself better. sudo chown -Rc $USER:$USER $HOME Checking Ignore per folder view preferences is working fine for me. There does seem to be a bug with uncheckin...

Re: Can't download from the software manager

Thanks. I think there is a couple of issues at play here. 1) The runtime org.freedesktop.Platform.openh264 (a dependency of org.freedesktop.Platform/x86_64/19.08) is failing to install with flatpak version 1.0.9. This is a bit weird because version 1.0.9 was released to fix this issue back in Septem...

You are probably best starting a new thread for your issue. Include the output of inxi -Fxxxzr for both the working fine laptop and the non-working laptop in your initial post.

Re: nemo zoom level doesn't stay the same

Hi,

Can you report the output of the terminal command below. It will check your home for files / folders not under your ownership. I'm wondering if there is a problem with file ownership preventing your Nemo preferences from 'sticking'

Code: Select all

Re: Moving files creates duplicates

Not a difference in how Nemo operates, though. By the way, checking Cinnamon 18.3, drag-and-drop in dual pane view works the same way, i.e., copies rather than moves. Don't have Cinn 18.1 installed anywhere, and not going to just to test this, but doubt it was different. As mentioned default drag a...

Re: I had to rollback to kernel 4.15 due to serious issues with 5.3

I'm completely baffled by this post. Why do you want (or need) a newer kernel? This is a common misunderstanding. Newer kernels aren't better. Whilst I don't fundamentally disagree with the stick with what's known to work philosophy you both espouse, it's a bit of an over-simplification to state th...
