Re: Xfce Multiple Monitors Desktop Icons and Files

I just learned of ARandR that might be of help with that.
Perhaps something to check out.

Re: Mint 19 misreports available disk space as 0.0bytes when plenty space

RESOLVED. mintinstall BUG suspected OK, it turns out, that if I remove the Toshiba HDD, the installer works (with only the SSD). I swapped that out and added only a WD hard disk, and the installer works. Add back in the SSD, with the WD hdd still present, and the installer works (with both the SSD ...

Re: Mint 19 misreports available disk space as 0.0bytes; GParted reports Bug in libparted

BTW, I tried running GParted, in order to get you a visual of the partitions that are available,
but it reports a BUG in libparted.

Re: Mint 19 misreports available disk space as 0.0bytes when plenty space

As I mentioned, it does not let me go further. I can't get to the screen where I specify where to install it. The 2GB USB stick has no persistence set up, and it looks as if it is reporting that, instead of looking for any hard drives. There is a 40GB partition set aside in ext4 on the SSD for Linux...

Mint 19 misreports available disk space as 0.0bytes when plenty space

I am trying to install Mint19. But it tells me that there is 0bytes available. During install, after I select language, keyboard layout, skip wifi (for now), the next screen misreports that 0bytes available for the install. It should be taking me to a screen where it asks me what drive to use, wheth...

Re: Differences between 64bit and 32bit OS on the lower machine-level, instruction sets, SW offerings, and Spectre.

Not only does Linus Torvalds not post here, I don't see any signs of ANY devs here. And few beginner to intermediate users would understand the answers anyway. I guess I was hoping a mod would escalate, or flag it, refer it to someone. As they'd know who the team is behind the scenes. And the mods ...

Re: Differences between 64bit and 32bit OS on the lower machine-level, instruction sets, SW offerings, and Spectre.

OP, For one thing you are wrong about desktop and laptop users not needing the memory 64-bit CPUs provide. You also incorrect about Specter and Meltdown exploits not being present in 32-bit CPUs. There are plenty of tech sites that have explain these topics in detail not to mention Wikipedia. Gee, ...

Re: Why did they remove the right-click checksum feature from the file-manager? and is there an alternate?

Mint 18.3 MATE thanks apt install caja-gtkhash for the file manager extension that you originally asked about (accessed via file properties). The standalone that you installed is fine as well though, as you prefer. By the way, are you sure you ended up with the right version of Mint? In the OP you ...

Odd though it shouldn't show in Synaptic. It should. The quote about the app is from Synaptic.
Maybe it's all in the Mate DE , the way Synaptic is set up in it by default (sources and available software).
Cheers!

Re: Why did they remove the right-click checksum feature from the file-manager? and is there an alternate?

Maybe this can be of any use: sudo apt install gtkhash GtkHash is a small GTK+ utility which allows users to compute message digests or checksums using the mhash library. Currently supported hash functions include MD5, MD6, SHA1, SHA256, SHA512, RIPEMD, TIGER and WHIRLPOOL. gtkhash.png THANKS! That...

The command line method is outlined here - http://linuxmint-installation-guide.readthedocs.io/en/latest/verify.html Yeah, exactly what people want to avoid by choosing Mint instead of some other antiquated distro. I think you overlooked the part where I mention I can't seem to navigate to the drive...

Why did they omit the right-click checksum feature from Mate's file-manager? and is there an alternate FM, or a plugin?

I just downloaded Mint 19, and am feeling the frustration of there being absolutely no GUI tools in 18.3MATE to check the md5 or sha256 hashes. It seems to me that Mint used to have this, over a decade ago. Why this regression? I tried installing programs for that from Synaptic (as the software cent...

Differences between 64bit and 32bit OS on the lower machine-level, instruction sets, SW offerings, and Spectre.

Might it be possible for someone on the development team to lend a hand with some of these questions? Someone intimately familiar with the machine-language instruction sets, and the AMD64 microprocessor architecture? Who may have been involved, or has experience, creating kernels?

Re: Is Mint not multi-tasking?

I was copying a few .iso files from my USB stick to hard disk. At the same time, I wanted to copy a small file from hard disk to another partition not involving the first one. And instead of doing them concurrently, they were queued. I found this strange because: the partition it was writing to was...
