Re: Can Nemo "Connect to server" be made to use NTLM? [Solved]

Option 1 isn't a go-er because it's a Netgear NAS and I don't have access to its smb.conf (*) Option 2 is neat and it will solve my problem. It slightly offends my sense of technical propriety that you have to know the shares you're going to access and put them in /etc/fstab beforehand; but given I'...

Can Nemo "Connect to server" be made to use NTLM? [Solved]

The charity for which I'm IT manager has a Netgear NAS unit; users' clients are all Windows 10 machines.

Alt-Tab leaves icon "strip" on screen, doesn't surface

Newly-installed Mint 17 with Cinnamon, all maintenance applied. (My first try with Mint after years of Ubuntu, and I'm generally very impressed). I've tried searching for "alt tab switch windows" but the terms are so common that the signal-to-noise ratio is close to zero. When I press Alt-tab I get ...
