Hi Jeanie, As you took time to reply to my post, i will do the same, despite you're not giving any practical information but only your opinion about it. First, of course "perfect" is not to be taken litterally...it's limited to the 3 pre-requisites i've listed ;-) Second i never wrote i was going to...

Re: Upgrade from 19.3 to 20

Hi, You might try Vivaldi which is based on Chromium and is a very good browser. 1st download from their website but then it's updated by the update manager from their repo.

Looking for the perfect free cloud storage...

Hi everyone, Over the years i've been using different free cloud storage solutions to keep backups of some important files, my current favourite being MEGA (50 Gb for free, very good management client and web site) But except for Google Drive (*), all those solutions are using asynchronous mirroring...

Re: XFCE 4.14

Hi,

I recently was unfaithful to Xfce because i wanted to try Gnome on my notebook, but i still have an old laptop with Mint XFCE on it and i wonder if there's any easy way to upgrade from 4.12 to 4.14 on it without waiting for the Mint team to integrate it ?

Re: Bug bash 4.4.20 ?

Bonjour,

Merci pour ta réponse.
J'ai fait un retour arrière de bash via Synaptic, et j'ai même forcé un fsck de mon /home au reboot au cas où...et j'ai toujours le même problème
Je vais tester d'autres scripts et voir si c'est reproductible.

Hi,

As far as i know the integration of google accounts in nemo is available only from LM19 (which is based on Ubuntu 18.04 unlike LM 17 & 18).

Puddletag is solid as a rock if you don't manage to solve the problem.
Hmm well, to be honest i tried several alternatives before posting here - including Puddletag - but i didn't find all great features i love in easytag.
Thank you for your reply though.
