Re: Can't use wildcards with apt command on LM20?

It looks like wildcard support will be back soon via a backport from upstream Debian - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1872200

Re: APT search output format

If you are adverse to Mint's apt wrapper on main edition Mint just do this and log off and back on. Will effectively ignore it for that user. mkdir -p ~/.local/bin; ln -s /usr/bin/apt ~/.local/bin I like it - apt content <some-package> is so so much easier to remember than dpkg -L <some-package> etc...

Re: Change behavior of super key

Hi,

You need to enable and configure the Scale Plugin in Compiz and use Compiz for Mate and XFCE.
It's a native feature in Cinnamon - Scale View.

Expo is similar but is a full screen workspace overview rather than a window overview.

Re: A lot of Mate remains

And to add to the caution, Cinnamon does install some MATE stuff as a fallback. Or at least it used to. Indeed it still does - these are MATE packages present by default in a Cinnamon install which are used to provide the fallback session. steve@steve-VirtualBox:~$ apt list *mate* --installed Listi...

Re: Toolbar too large in Windows XP theme

I think you need to look to the icon theme as the cause of the problem - the XP themes themselves work fine for me in Mint 19.3 and 20.

Have you tried this icon theme - https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1158349/ - works nicely with the XP themes and crucially is maintained.

Re: Mint 20 beta - How to install chromium-browser.

I really don't understand, so what do you think would be the best approach? Keep as it is? If Mint were to commit to building and offering Chromium directly they are committing to building and releasing a new update every-time there is an upstream security fix, otherwise they would be doing their u...

Re: Prevent icons from moving

Using Linux Mint Cinnemon 20.
Restart Cinnamon with keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Alt-Esc after creating or amending a custom shortcut. There is an outstanding bug that needs the Cinnamon restart as a workaround.

Hi what Mint Version and Desktop environment are you testing on? Also what icon theme are you using? Does the problem happen on all the variations of the theme provided in that download.

Re: Cinnamon startup application doesn't honour desktop file "Path" clause

Now that's interesting as that suggests there's no unified handling of .desktop files, right? Is that by design (just curious)? Not a developer so take this answer with a pinch of salt but yes there is no unified handling of desktop files, and i think it's by necessity rather than design, given the...

Re: Amazon ethernet with each new kernel install, why?

Are you asking about these?

Amazon make own brand networking devices so I guess they are the kernel drivers for those. There's folders for 87 different manufacturers in that section.

Re: Turn off graphics drivers check

Hi,

Assuming Cinnamon here? You can either choose to load the Software Rendering session by default (so GPU acceleration not required and thus no warning that it's not supported) or (preferred option) go with the XFCE edition which is going to work way better on that class of hardware.
