Re: zip / p7zip question

Oh wow - that is fantastic! That is so well laid out, and easy to use. That will be my tool of choice for compressing. Thanks again phd21.

Sounds good phd21 , thanks for your help again.

When I get a chance to use it for a bit, I'll report back here and give a quick personal review.

Re: zip / p7zip question

Thanks for that, just in a nutshell, what makes it better than 7zip?

Re: zip / p7zip question

Thanks Cosmo.

I hate to admit it, but I never tried those options. :oops: :oops: :oops:

Once again, you fixed it for me.

Re: zip / p7zip question

According to Synaptic, p7zip-full is already installed, but I only see the "compress" option in Nemo.

Maybe there is something I need to do to get it to integrate in the right-click menu?

zip / p7zip question

I want to 7-zip some folders. In looking around, it looks like p7zip is already installed in 18.3 Cinnamon.

When I right-click on the file manager, is the option "Compress" I see using the p7zip or standard zip? If standard, can I make it use p7zip instead?

Re: Computer reboots when toilet flushes

In the mid 1980's I had a Lada car. If you honked the horn, the windshield wipers would come on - never tracked down the issue. Since turning on the windshield wiper switch was more work than honking the horn, whenever it started to rain, I would just honk the horn. Yes, I am that lazy.

Re: Solved (quickly!) - Firefox browser preferences question

I don't have a "Title" bar option, but I do have a "Menu" bar option. I'm thinking that is what you mean. I turned it off, and did get more space.

The size of the tabs is fine for me.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Solved (quickly!) - Firefox browser preferences question

Out of curiosity I installed Firefox 58.0.2 portable and looked to see what else could be done. In "Customize Firefox" unchecking Title Bar gives back some space, also, under "Density" selecting "Compact" shrinks the tab height just a scosh more. Just some FYI :) Thanks for that. I found using the ...

Re: Solved (quickly!) - Firefox browser preferences question

That's nice! Me too switch back and forth between Chrome and Firefox. But for the sake of consistency, I run Chrome-Unstable :D Actually, no problem with it either. Life on the edge with the unstable! Well to paraphrase Nietzsche, "One must still have chaos in one's browser to be able to give birth...

Re: Solved (quickly!) - Firefox browser preferences question

If I am not mistaken the option was already present in Nightly 59. So next release of the Stable, will most probably have it. That makes sense. It's actually a good option. Obviously I wasn't the only person who wanted that real estate back! I'll check out the nightly for now. I actually use Chrome...

Re: Solved (quickly!) - Firefox browser preferences question

Excellent, you got an answer. I was gonna say there's gotta be a tweak or about:config setting, no need to run an change versions :) You may be right, but I've looked all over and have not found a way to make the change. I don't mind switching to the nightly build as long as it's stable. However, i...

Re: Firefox browser preferences question

I just checked, they are both maxed. When I click the middle button, they both go small to a size I choose, but when the screenshot was taken they were both full screened.

Solved (quickly!) - Firefox browser preferences question

I use Firefox 58 and Chrome 65. I actually really like the new Firefox, but one thing bothers me - I get more viewing area on Chrome as the tabs on Chrome touch the top of the screen, whereas Firefox wastes that bit at the top above the tabs. Chrome: Screenshot from 2018-03-13 17-25-43.png Firefox: ...

Re: Canonical Pursuing A Hardware/Software Survey For Ubuntu Installations

So I actually read what info they are gathering. I personally have no issue with what they want - actually it makes sense so they can know where to focus their efforts. I wouldn't even opt out - and I'm a privacy nut. You have to choose your battles IMO. There are far worse privacy issues regarding ...

Re: When did you come to Linux?

....... There are certainly some other distros that I like - Peppermint, Korora, Netrunner... but nothing that could get me to switch from Mint :mrgreen: I use Peppermint on my older laptop. Of all the Linus Distro's, it is a very close second to Mint Cinnamon IMO. It is lighter and faster on older...

Re: Update Manager Error

OK, so found what the software was causing the "colomboem" thingy mentioned above - it was a program called Dukto. I removed it, removed the line from the sources list and re-ran the Refresh on the update manger, and no more errors - BIG THANKS for helping.
