Re: How to downgrade an applet

Well, I have the backup. :) So with your help the recovery was really simple. Thank you! But anyway - I agree it is important to make backups, and there is always a certain risk with any update or upgrade. But the fact the Applet manager actively offers you something that will break (a part of) the ...

How to downgrade an applet

Linux Mint 17.1, Cinnamon 2.4.8 The built-in Applets manager (accessible via Settings / Applets) does a nasty thing: It lets you choose and install an applet which is not compatible with your Cinnamon version. Only after you try to use it (i.e. to add it to a panel), it produces an error, and if you...

Best way to upgrade Cinnamon to 2.6/2.8

I am running Linux Mint 17.1 with Cinnamon 2.4.8. I miss some features, namely the possibility to configure the Windows List behaviour. I was looking for an applet that would replace the default Windows List, but probably the only one that could help was the Icing Task Manager, which is however not ...

Re: Unwanted transparency in some menu/title bars...

I am afraid the above does not fully solve the problem. I experience the same behaviour as described by ght_web , with the following configuration: VMware Workstation Player 12.5.7 Host: Linux Mint 17.1 (64 bit), Cinnamon 2.4.8 Guest: Linux Mint 18.2 (64 bit), Cinnamon 3.4.3 VMware Tools 10.1.6 succ...

Re: External CDROM - problem after changing the disk

Thanks for a good tip. But the polling is already enabled by default: / $ cat /sys/block/sr0/events_poll_msecs 2000 I suppose that if the polling was off, there would be no update at all after the disc change. But in this case, the desktop icon and its label are updated accordingly; what does not wo...

External CDROM - problem after changing the disk

I have bought an external USB CD/DVD drive, type LG GP57EW40. Even though Linux is not officially supported by the manufacturer, users reported it worked fine under Linux. I am using Linux Mint 17.1. When I connect the drive and insert the first CD/DVD, everything is fine. There is a disc icon on th...

Aisleriot game definition files

Hello, Couple of years ago, using Mandriva Linux at that time, I was investigating the Aisleriot .scm files, which defined the game rules in a lisp-like language (one file per each game variation). It was relatively easy to edit the files and to make new game variants. Now, with Linux Mint 17.1, I d...

Re: moving persistent USB stick to another machine

Minterator wrote:Boot it from BIOS boot menu as non-UEFI
Not sure how to do that.
The Boot Menu offers either 'External USB Hard Drive' (this is what I selected until now), or 'Boot From EFI File'.
Experimenting with the latter option, I was able to start Linux Mint but, again, not the UNetbootin loader...

moving persistent USB stick to another machine

Hello I've created Mint 17 (64 bit) persistent installation on USB stick using UNetbootin. While it works okay on the machine which was used to create it (PC1), it behaves as 'non-persistent' on another machine (PC2) - i.e. it boots as if from CD, no settings are remembered. The difference can be se...
