Re: Touchpad not working Mint 19.3 XFCE

i've tried
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics
but it says it is already installed

However there is no synaptics.conf files installed in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d

It hasn't failed hardware wise as it works in the UEFI startup menu.

Can anyone help?

Re: Thunar/Catfish file search

That's fixed putting

sudo sed -e 's/"key-release-event" handler="on_catfish_window_key_press_event"/"key-release-event" handler="on_catfish_window_key_release_event"/' -i /usr/share/catfish/ui/CatfishWindow.ui

into the terminal resolved it
Thanks very much.

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 wifi issue

I did what you advised but there is still some networks it won't connect to
one is a Cisco modem transmitting 2.4GHZ and 5GHZ on the same SSID.

Any other suggestions?

I can disable IpV6 ON WIFI connections totally?
