Re: Screen Saver: Idle Time Setting is Gone

I can no longer set the idle time. ... I think I have always used [Never] on the prompt. In fact, as a test, I just set it to 1 minute, as per the 1-min screen shot. You do have the setting, as you explained yourself. (The third setting in the dialog). ... but when I moved the mouse it all just cam...

Re: It's a little bit annoying seeing the libreoffice document recovery thing pop up every time I try to use it

As said: First turn of the quick starter, if it is activated. Second: Create a new LO profile. LO (inclusive the quick starter) must be completely closed at first. More in detail: Open your file manager and make hidden files visible (ctrl-h). Now open in your home the folder .config and rename the s...

Re: Libreoffice: WARNING **: require a newer gtk than 3.10 for theme expectations

You can drag the borders of the dialog to make it bigger.

BTW: In this case the picture showed enough, but note, that in the case, where really details have to be seen, this tiny picture is not visible (at least not for my older eyes).

Re: New to Mint Updates and Terminal

The crucial part of the level distinction is not the testing matter. The crucial part is, that the packages of the higher level may bring changes in their code, which may or may not work on the user's system. That means, that the higher level contain software, which is rather hardware dependent and ...

Fair enough, you'd just have to trust me on that. If I would do that, a big number of issues would never had been solved. So: I don't! That is not personal, that is experience. I also forgot to mention that while I kept the home partition, I basically shoved all files into an "OLD" folder...

Re: Giving Suggestions in the Cinnamon Menu

When I tested Mate some years ago I saw something similar and I didn't like it. Note, that the Cinnamon does not look only for application names, but also for some metadata like description, and sometimes the results are really strange. Example: If I enter the word graphics, I get psensor (installed...

Re: Issues after upgrade to 18.1

Do you have imported the - not at least described - LM 18 issues into 18.1? Create a fresh new user account and test issue 1 there. No, the LM 18 issues are different. Basically, it's a collection of minor things that accumulated from day 1 because it was my first ever shot at Linux and I didn't ha...

Re: It's a little bit annoying seeing the libreoffice document recovery thing pop up every time I try to use it

Perhaps related with this bug? Unluckily the bug fix version (LO 5.1.7) is not available in the Ubuntu repos (as so often :cry: ). Sometimes it helps, to create a new LO profile, by deleting (or renaming) the folder libreoffice in your home's .config folder. Saying that: here with a LO build taken f...

Re: Keylogger Trojan Problem Mint 17 qiana

Try starting the file manager application from the toolbar files button at the bottom of the screen and, without setting the focus anywhere, type Alt Gr x - happens every time on mine (Mint 17 cinnamon). If you set the focus I don't think it happens. Yep, with this method I get the search box. I ge...

Re: How do I fix this......

Install dconf-editor and open it. Open the search feature and search for thumbnail. Possibly you will find anywhere a value named thumbnailers -> disable all. I use Cinnamon, so i cannot tell you, if and where this exists in Mate.

This is a desklet, which comes with Mint, but is not activated by default. Open the desklet configuration and right click the desklet, that select to remove ...

Re: Login Slideshow from mounted folder

You cannot mount a folder, but a partition. And this has to be done with an entry in /etc/fstab, otherwise the partition is not mounted at boot time.

Re: It's a little bit annoying seeing the libreoffice document recovery thing pop up every time I try to use it

If LO offers to recover anything, than there must be something to recover. If you use the quickstarter try to disable it and check, if the problem remains.

I suggest to use Aptik. Obviously you need the Internet for downloading it (just as for writing here), but not for executing it.
