Re: How to I open this file with write permissions?

For future reference: since you're running Mate, you can simply right click the file and select "Open as administrator."

Re: Does Not Id my DVD-ROM nor myExternal HD

Those that could help you are going to need more information. A good start would be to paste inxi -Fxzd in the terminal (full screen to avoid chopped lines) and press enter. Then paste the results back here in code tags (the button for code tags looks like this: </> ).

Re: Alarm clock recommendations?

There's an app called "Alarm Clock" (it might read "alarm-clock-applet" or something like that in Synaptic). I use it and it suits my needs just fine. Not sure if it will suit yours, but it's worth checking out.

Re: Linux Code of Conduct and Linus Torvalds

Well, I guess their tentacles are now wrapped around Linux. How can this happen? I wonder if Mr. Torvalds is being blackmailed as has been suggested by some.

Re: LM 19 Mate - issues encountered

I've seen plenty of posts here about borked upgrades from one series to the next (i.e, 17>>18, and now 18>>19). I'd recommend a clean install. I can't answer the question why sometimes upgrades don't go well. I've always done clean installs myself, even within a series (i.e., 18.0>>18.1, etc.).

Re: Any recommendations for Linux Mint anti-virus and internet security?

As has been said, you don't need AV in Linux. I know it can be hard for newbies to believe, but it's true. (Read the link DAMIEN1307 gave, it's good advice. The whole site is really.)

Mint already comes with a firewall, Gufw. It's off by default so you need to turn it on.

I * think * some people solved this problem like this (note my wording): Right click an empty spot on the panel. Click "Add to Panel." Scroll down and add "Window List." You might want to search the forums first though before you do anything. I really don't understand why some have this problem. I h...

Re: 2 fine tuning questions

First off, what desktop are you using, Cinnamon, Mate or Xfce?
(I'm guessing Mate because your problem seems to be specific to Mate from other posts in here.)
