Re: Is upgrading XFCE to 4.14 possible?

Following your lead kato181, did manage to get it going. Screen tearing did not go away so i did this: In /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory, edit (or create) a file called 20-radeon.conf (look for amdgpu.conf for users with the amdgpu drivers) with the following contents: Section "Device" Identi...

Will LMDE3 get Cinnamon 4?

...at the same time as regular LM?
Or do we have to wait for LMDE4?

Silly question?

LMDE3 praise, tips and tweaks dept.

LMDE3 has to be one of the top 3 distros i have ever driven! :D

Although it is already excellent, looking for tweak tips to enhance the experience.
Wondering what your favorite search tool is?
Recoll is on the top of my list.
Tried to install Cerebro but can't get it to go.

Re: LMDE 3

LMDE3 beats Win 10 hands down on my SSD.
By the time Win 10 is loaded and able open any app in decent time frame, i have time to write two pages in LibreOffice on LMDE3! :lol:

About 10 sec. for LMDE3 here.

btw, wish i could go and use Vista to see that unbelievable speed with my own eyes!

Re: What is protocol for Flatpak? [Solved]

You are right, Simplenote is not "flatpaked" yet.
Wish i could momentarily disable "find as you type" feature in Firefox.
Can do a search on that Flatpak site.
Think i had previously installed Simplenote via Snap.

Anyway, did install Hydrapaper via Flatpak and it works just fine. :)

What is protocol for Flatpak? [Solved]

Thought flatpak was supposed to be native to LMDE...
Tried for example "flatpak install simplenote" and nothing goes.
Did i miss a step?

Yay! :D

Snap maybe too?
Surprised there is no mention of either in Clem's monthly letter.

Re: Simplenote won't install

Just to confirm that it is an ongoing issue even with a clean install of latest Cinnamon 19 beta released from LinuxMint site (not Distrowatch anticipated one).

Re: Simplenote won't install

Addendum: maybe the fact that i'm using Distrowatch pre-release 19 beta had something to do with it.

Re: Simplenote won't install [Solved]

Maybe this could help. In the directory you have saved the .deb file, right-click and open a terminal. Run sudo dpkg -i Package-Name Replace Package-Name with the actual package's name. Cool! :D Never did that before! Learned something new today. Thank you! - - - - - For the record, did download tw...

Simplenote won't install

Even if dependencies are satisfied, package installer will not install Simplenote, it just disappears after clicking install.
