Re: KDE5 is still disaster

My 2 cents: After running Mint 18.3 KDE5 for a week (including a full reinstall), I decided to revert to 17.3 with KDE4, for quite a lot of reasons: - KDE5 appears to have some graphics bugs. When I unlock the desktop (e.g. after being absent for a while), the text below the desktop icons is b0rked ...

[SOLVED] Mint 18.3 KDE performance problems

Hello, I've been using Mint 17.3 KDE for some time now, but yesterday, a kernel update (probably for the Spectre/Meltdown CPU vulnerability) broke nVidia proprietary driver support. So far, there appears no way to fix this, so I decided to install 18.3 KDE as multi-boot next to 17.3, so that I can r...

Re: SOLVED - Mouse buttons configuration?

But thank you anyway,

Regards,

Richard

SOLVED - Re: Mouse buttons configuration?

It's rather complicated. However, some more searching turned up good 'ole xmodmap, and xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 4 ...

SOLVED - Mouse buttons configuration?

Hello, I recently bought a new mouse featuring side buttons and tilt wheel functionality. The side buttons are fine, but I would like to disable the tilt wheel function, as it is more annoying than helpful. However, the System Settings (Mint 17.1 KDE) offer no configuration options for the extra mou...
