Display problems

I have a problem which started to manifest at least a year ago - disappearing icons on the desktop. The icons that could disappear are those in the taskbar or its Menu. Only random amount of icons disappear. The severity of this increases if I put computer to sleep and wake it up - more icons disapp...

Re: How do I make a Minecraft server on Linux Mint?

Nothing special to do - copy your world folder elsewhere, launch the new server and see if something breaks. If it does, go back to previous version and use the backup you made. Or, if the damage is insignificant, you can decide to stay on new version. Note that there might happen another update soo...

Re: Software that you would like to have for Linux

Someone requested a TotalCommander clone, so I started developing a file manager. It is in early stage, but if anyone wants to try it, here is the download - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1a-GpblZalE9-R2Q1xW9DYIvcePiKY9m7 . It requires Java 8 to work. Usage: after extracting downloaded Zip, use t...

So many serious requests...

Re: seeking "coding conventions" for python-based project

As an IDE I can suggest PyCharm, but I haven't learned python that much to recommend something else. Default IDE for python is IDLE ( https://docs.python.org/3/library/idle.html ), and it is included in the packages. Default UI toolkit is Tkinter ( https://docs.python.org/3/library/tkinter.html#modu...

Re: Who no longer trusts or uses Facebook?

I started using Facebook because someone from my university group invited me there. Never really liked it. And as of last times, it's just a platform for showing off your ego. I have "friends" and classmates there, but I don't find anything to talk about with them. In addition (I don't know if anyon...

Alright, now I have a lot of free time available. I attempted to learn Python since I last posted here, but didn't quite like it. I'm used to Java and it remains my chosen cup of coffee... Now I'm taking requests for applications that someone would like to have (not just for Linux). As stated, I kno...

Re: How do I make a Minecraft server on Linux Mint?

I can see that your server is now located in folder named "Minecraft", not "Minecraft server". If that's true, you need to remove the "\ server" part in the script, so it corresponds to the new directory.

Re: Software that you would like to have for Linux

Hey, is it okay to continue this thread? I was reading through it now and the main purpose I started it was to know what software people on Linux need. I have some programming skills and would like to attempt to implement some of the ideas posted here.

Re: Ethernet not connecting []

First, when you boot to Windows and then want to boot into Mint, don't restart. Make sure you take Windows all the way down to a power off. Then restart the computer and boot into Mint. Also, make sure that Windows fast booting is turned off. Fast booting is just a type of hibernation and who knows...

Re: Ethernet not connecting [POORLY SOLVED]

I pinned down this issue a little. So, the issue: I boot into Windows 7; then I boot into Mint 18.1 and lose connection to router and internet. The stupid solution: I boot into old Mint 17.3 system on a separate hard drive and it fixes the connection. What's the problem? Is it kernel, firmware, driv...

Invalid .desktop files

I have a question regarding .desktop files in /usr/share/aplications. I have at least one file that points to not-installed application (Vim) and several duplicates of other files.

Re: Ethernet not connecting

This is weird, I can successfully connect from a laptop (wired) which has Xubuntu 16.04. And in router's interface I can't see my PC in the DHCP client list, which means that it can't connect to router?
