Re: Where did the rest of the keyboard shortcuts go in 18.3?

Never use KDE, but 18.3 Cinnamon has all of the standard keyboard shortcuts that were/are popular in the Windows OS.... IMHO, Windows shortcuts are far too limited for my liking of customizing. It doesn't do what KDE allows so there can't be a shortcut for it . IMO, all shortcuts should be standard...

Re: Where did the rest of the keyboard shortcuts go in 18.3?

.... Under System Settings, Workspace/Shortcuts, and on the Global Shortcuts page (with KDE 4 its Common Appearance and Behavior/Shortcuts and Gestures). Raise and Lower Window are under KWin (Other Shortcuts). They were easier to find on KDE 5 than with KDE 4 where you had to select KWin on the KD...

Re: Where did the rest of the keyboard shortcuts go in 18.3?

Alt + middle mouse button is toggle raise/lower (configured as a Window Action). You can configure other Actions in Window Manager Settings (accessible from the window menu > More Actions). That doesn't work on my installation. However , I fleetingly found a place where I could set shortcuts under ...

Help me out here; which Linux Mint version are you on?
I'm getting used to Linux Mint 18.3, trying to get the shortcuts I used in 17.3 to work. But I can't work out where or if they are still part of KDE 5.x

Where did the rest of the keyboard shortcuts go in 18.3?[Solved]

The keyboard shortcuts have been largely redesigned in LM 18.x c.f. LM17.x and I can't find many that I liked to use. In particular, I use 'raise window' and 'lower window'. I like the active window to stay behind by default -- particularly if it's a konsole window -- and raised when I want it, so I...

Re: Installing Mint 18.3 from USB gives no options

Could it be different for installing KDE? Turns out, yes. That's why it's important to include such information in the OP, so folks don't waste their time answering the wrong question. It never occurred to me that the difference using KDE came into effect at that early stage. Decisions are made as ...

Re: Installing Mint 18.3 from USB gives no options

Too late now, I suppose, but what you should have used Tuxkid was the "Something Else" method. That's where you'll find the options you describe. I don't recall seeing "Something Else" Why would I make this up? In fact, the Installation Type screen is the same for both: I wasn't inferring that you ...

Re: Installing Mint 18.3 from USB gives no options

No, that's not the new way of doing things (also 18.3 is not new, but okay). Can you post a screenshot of the HD in GParted? Is there any free space? If there is no free space, you will not be offered the option to install alongside. I've only ever used GParted from a boot disk, but this shows I ha...

Installing Mint 18.3 from USB gives no options

I've used LM 17.3 for a long time and wanted to install 18.3 on the same disk. However, I found no options that responded. There was a screen that looked like it gave options, but clicking boxes had no effect. In the end, I could only install to the whole disk and format (i.e.) destroy everything on...

Re: LM 17.2 KDE Desktop just started crashing

I've never had that problem but I found a way that deals with flakiness is to use kquitapp plasma-desktop All your windows will lose their borders and the like, but you get them back when you restart the gui. plasma-desktop That could take some time and it might look like it's not finishing but afte...

Re: [Solved] /boot partition has no space.

Shouldn't be a problem. Did you get that post-removal script error message again though? That was the immediate thing I wanted to fix with those commands. If you didn't, then you should now be able to remove the remaining kernel packages via Synaptic. We'll clean up whatever is left manually afterw...

Re: /boot partition has no space.

Ok, no problem, this wasn't entirely unexpected due to the lack of free space. You might be able to remove those above normally now since you cleared one of them, but otherwise see if this works: sudo update-initramfs -d -k 4.4.0-127-generic sudo update-initramfs -d -k 4.4.0-111-generic sudo dpkg -...

Re: /boot partition has no space.

If it lists one as loaded, that probably means that it's the kernel that's currently in use. The command uname -r will tell you for sure. The command ls -l /vmlinuz will tell you where the current default kernel is located. Never ever try to remove the currently active kernel. All the others are fr...

Re: /boot partition has no space.

I like that approach. Just how did you go about deleting the oldest one? Is it a simple matter of aptitude delete initrd.img-4.4.0-124-generic? Is that the appropriate way to specify the target kernel? Will that take care of the vmlinuz*, abi*, config* etc files? That would be more straightforward ...

Re: /boot partition has no space.

When I installed Linux Mint 17.2, it configured /boot with only 100 Mb of space. Since each new kernel update keeps previous ones, there is no space for anything new since 4.4.0-127.. How do I go about removing stale kernels? I have installed 17.2 many times and it does not create a /boot partition...

Re: /boot partition has no space.

When I installed Linux Mint 17.2, it configured /boot with only 100 Mb of space. That's not big enough for more than one kernel. I didn't set the size. The setup gui didn't offer such a choice. But I made a mistake. It's not quite as small as I indicated. 236 Mb, not 100Mb which is still too small....

[Solved] Compiing from source when a newer version is required

I need GDAL version > 1.11.4 but the latest version in the Mint repo's newest version is 1.10.1. If I compile it from source, will that clash with anything else when it's not handled by the package manager?

checking GDAL version >= 1.11.4... no

Using Linux Mint 17.3, I wish to install an R package that requires GDAL version >= 1.11.4. My most recent update includes version 1.10.1. I noticed I can find a deb file (or at least a tgz file) of much later versions, but I'm reluctant to use a version that's not in the package management system. ...
