Re: Video Lagging in 1080p

Your processor is too weak to handle software video decoding at 1080p so you need hardware based decoding to have a fighting chance. (I know this as I have the same processor running Mint 20 on my secondary machine, a converted chromebook) For me enabling HW decoding on Celluloid gives a much better...

Re: LM20 - prefer clean filenames without: "link to"

So the original instructions as written but substituting nemo-4.6.5+ulyana work fine for me. I get the same key signing error but the debs are produced and install fine. The key signing error can be avoided (found this out recently) by using the command below in step 6 rather than just apt-build apt...

Re: dconf-editor error when opening from terminal

I don't think it's anything to worry about - probably just because dconf-editor is technically a Gnome3 app and we are all using it on non Gnome3 desktops. Night-light is a Gnome3 feature.

Talking about CInnamon? Are you definitely using the stock window-list? By default it's got left click to minimise and middle click to close set although both can be modified in it's preferences. https://i.imgur.com/5JQc73T.png (Which was fun, it decided to add itself on the right zone, and nothing ...

Re: Gparted Theme Confusion

Hi So gparted from the terminal or the menu ends up running /usr/sbin/gparted which is a wrapper script that because you are not root will rerun itself as pkexec --disable-internal-agent '/usr/sbin/gparted' "$@" to launch the application. Elevating privileges in this way the application doesn't acce...

Re: Separate apps across panels

I am not talking about applets, they can be moved freely across panels. I am talking about *.desktop icons that can be pinned to the panel. *.desktop icons on the panel are hosted in applets though, either as pinned apps contained in one or more instances of the grouped-window-list applet or as ind...

Re: Linux Files

So, every time I open a basic text file, I have to answer questions about opening it. It seems very cumbersome. Is there a setting for this? Is the question about wanting to execute the text file or open it? Are you opening the file from a NTFS file system? If yes to both questions it's a limitatio...

Checking on a 19.3 VM It looks like the symlinks moved from / to /boot between 19.3 and 20.

Expected behaviour - see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FocalFossa/ReleaseNotes#Python3_by_default Mint is the same other than python2.7 is present in a new install. If a third party application is expecting a default /usr/bin/python to exist you can install either python-is-python2 or python-is-python3

Riddle me this...
Are you testing on 19.x or 20 (default sudo environment variables differ between the two).

Is your choice of theme installed via apt or a theme you've manually installed to your user's home?
