Re: How to run flatpak gimp from other app

I created a shell script using the command line I found in the menu editor. I replaced the %%U stuff with $1 and set Aftershot to use the script. It works perfectly opening a tiff file in Gimp 2.10. I have the same problem with xnviewmp The above idea doesn#t work for me :-(. Could you please post ...

Re: Trouble installing GIMP 2.10.0 using Flatpak

Maybe Rich's Tutorial here https://www.gimp-forum.net/Thread-ubunt ... nd-flatpak helps.
Haven't tried that myself yet, but usually his instructions are very good and working.
You'll probably not have to install flatpak itself as it's built in into Mint 18.3 ( but not in Ubuntu, which he uses).

Re: Cinnamon weather desklet is there one for Mate

There's a PPA as well:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:atareao/atareao
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install my-weather-indicator
Maybe that helps

Re: "Set as Default" in Thunderbird email

will it just simple say set Thunderbird as the default like
when using email function from within a browser (in my case Firefox)
Exactly. That's what it does. Tell the system that it's your default email client. It won't touch Evolution.

Re: how to sort photo by dates taken

if you don't need a GUI ... exiftool could be your friend. install exiftool and put this in a .sh file in the folder with all your jpgs and make executable: #!/bin/sh exiftool "-DateTimeOriginal>FileName" -d '%Y/%m-%B/%d/' -w %f.%e *.* --ext sh to see how it works ... try with a bunch of testphotos ...

Re: Fritzbox certificate how to install

Finally managed to get the certificate imported.
Had to rename it to boxcert.crt.

Still Filezilla only accepts it for the day. Next day it asks again. So there must be a problem with Filezilla still. I'll investigate that further in their forum.
Thanks kyphi for your help ... and patience.

Re: [solved]Fritzbox certificate how to install

Turned out today that it didn't help :-(. Just worked for one day ( probably because filezilla has a cookie for that somewhere) When running sudo update-ca-certificates the output is: Updating certificates in /etc/ssl/certs... 0 added, 0 removed; done. Running hooks in /etc/ca-certificates/update.d....

Re: Mint 18 and Brother scanner (Solved)

Update: I found this and following the advice there, I now have the scanner working under Sarah! I did remove the files which I had copied to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane/ earlier. Thank you very much for posting this update. Followed this for a DCP-357C ... and finally it works on Linux Mint 18.3!
