Re: Mate vs Cinnamon

MATE deserves a bit more attention. After drifting over from so many distros, was pleasantly surprised by MATE's capabilities! :) It is among the most quiet on my noisy old HP laptop. Solus and MX are probably next in line with regards to that point. Not as sophisticated as Cinnamon but simplicity M...

Re: Menu theme not changing on 19.3 beta [Solved]

Thanks guys - will keep defaults for now (which are just fine by me!). If i do decide to eventuality modify one, just hope to remember to save the default before. :P - - - - - Btw, exchanges here with you are a huge encouragement! 8) MATE by LinuxMint has been a game changer for me, bringing me clos...

Re: Menu theme not changing on 19.3 beta [Solved]

@gm10 - let me rephrase this... Right-click on Menu-Preferences: General-Appearance-Favorites-Applications-System-Places. Now, if i select Appearance, theme option offers a drop-down with all the themes available. None of these however, tell you if background is white or black (or whatever pre-estab...

Re: Menu theme not changing on 19.3 beta

@gm10 - i'll be darn!

Now that is an awkward thing if any! :?
Did i miss a help file somewhere?
But at least, now i know!

- - - - -

Thanks for the offer - probably best to put that offer on standby until i get better acquainted with the standard intricacies of LinuxMint MATE.

Re: Menu theme not changing on 19.3 beta

If i could take a screenshot of the menu when it pops up i could illustrate it better.

What is the logic of a dark theme or darker theme that changes the background to menu items to white or black without the user knowing which is which?

How to do this?

Re: Menu theme not changing on 19.3 beta

@catweazel - didn't see it as a known bug for MATE, so my guess is to proceed with a bug report?

As a newbie to MATE, can anyone else confirm having similar issue?

Re: Menu theme not changing on 19.3 beta

Yes - just noticed a few moments ago that some themes have an impact while others don't, at least not in the same way. Some make the menu items go into a dark, black shade while others don't. The menu icon background changes (probably all the time) while the menu items go from either dark/light blac...

Menu theme not changing on 19.3 beta [Solved]

Have preferences set at Mint-Y-Brown and everything else (appearance tweaks) work except this part with regard to the menu.

Menu items just stick to plain white (not ugly but would prefer Mint-Y-Brown).

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...

...at the same time as regular LM?

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!
