Re: Cannot rename file/folder from uppercase to lowercase

Well, I'm on Mate 1.16, so this looks like a "new" bug not present in version 1.16.

Re: Cannot rename file/folder from uppercase to lowercase

How are you guys doing this? I just right click the file, select rename, and start typing. It works no problem.

BTW, Mint 18.3 uses Mate 1.18

There is no Mate 18.3. I think you mean MINT 18.3. Two different things.

This thread is nine years old, so the OP (farnaby) really did mean Mint 9.

Re: Noise on Hard diskk and fan

Run inxi -Fxz in a full screen terminal window and post the results back here inside of code tags. Generally if you can hear your hard drive making noises that's a sign that it's failing.

I heard when they start to go bad, you can read the information from off of them, but you can't write new info on them. Unfortunately I can't remember where I've read that.
