Re: youtube-dl

We were typing at the same time. :) They could but doing that would break applications that expect /usr/bin/python to point to the python2 executable, and with LM13/12.04 I would expect that to be quite a few. Even on LM19.x it would still break a number of applications. So not the recommended cours...

Re: youtube-dl

OK, I just realized that OP shouldn't do exactly "the same", because on his system there are probably too many system tools written specifically for python2. So, changing symlink to point to python3 probably isn't good idea... But, he can do something like this: python3 /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl -F ...

Re: youtube-dl

So, I would say: it's not the problem with youtube-dl, But it is, see my post above. Sooo... what you are saying is that everybody's youtube-dl is broken (if used with python 2.x)? OK, I tested it – changed python symlink in /usr/bin (which was pointing to python 2.7) to point to python 3.6... and ...

Re: youtube-dl

Well, with the link you gave us, even my youtube-dl (which is refreshed today, running on LM 19.3, also freshly updated) doesn't work either. It throws on me a handful of errors, not exactly the same as your's but similar. I have checked and I don't see problems with youtube-dl on any other site. So...

I do check gnome-look.org regularly (actually xfce-look.org, but they are the same). But I never realized it has white border, because screenshot is displayed over white bac...

Dark theme with light borders

Xfce ONLY. Are you using dark theme on your Linux? Ever had a problem to "find that window's corner"? I had. That's why I made this. I gave it name 'Mint-B' (1). It's not a complete theme, but rather a supplement to Mint-Y-Dark theme, which is very well done and very complete one, except one small i...

Re: need to install OpenGL 3.3

Are you possibly trying to use some software that requires OpenGL 3.3? That was my reason to look for "higher OpenGL version". So, how to upgrade OpenGL support? By upgrading graphics card driver OR (if that's not possible) graphics card. Basically, your graphics chip AND corresponding driver will p...

I cannibalized a script I had done for other purposes that makes a nice striped timezone list. Here is my variant:

Re: Virtual Box shared folders

Question for OP: Did you add yourself to vboxusers group? If not, that's probably the reason why shares doesn't work.

Re: where does linux mint 19.1 xfce save desktop icon order

It happens occasionally on every Xfce system I installed. It's a known Xfce problem. I have a script (which I execute with keyboard shortcuts) that fixes icons when it happens. Maybe you will find it useful: #!/bin/bash # # purpose : back up & restore desktop icons positions, in case xfdesktop mess ...

Re: Firefox scrollbar colour

@smurphos

That tip just made my day. 8)

The same question (FF scrollbar colour) bugged me for a long time, but I never made an effort to ask, dunno why. But now I'm enjoying my FF which finally agrees with my favourite theme (Mint-Y-Dark...)

Thank you!

Re: why use Thunderbird at all?

I take my laptop with me and may not always have internet when I'm out and about. I want my email on my own machine, not in the cloud (someone else's machine).
