Re: Dark or Night mode for this forum

Pretty sure night mode in general is what you choose to become vision impaired, not when you already are. :lol: :twisted: Seems you're lucky to not have any problems with your eyesight. I find dark modes very helpful when you have vision problems. I have an overall dark theme for my desktop (vertex...

It is now safe to remove the drive notification

Linux Mint Mate 18.3: When I unplug a usb drive I get a notification "It is now safe to remove the drive". So far so good. I'm on a German system -- the message is in English. And what is worse: it's indicated with a red colour ( I would think red is for danger to tell you not to do things, so blue ...

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.
