Re: Change default location for flatpaks

Flatpak is by default stored in the root filesystem and Flatpaks can often get BIG in filesize. This causes problem for all of us that have the root filesystem on a separate partition. From early days this partition is usually allocated limited diskspace. I would like an easy parameter switch in co...

Re: Various problems with CAJA

Regarding the 'slow-to-open-folders" issues with Caja, I've created a github account and voiced my concerns upstream with one of the many other still open tickets there. https://github.com/mate-desktop/caja/issues/794 In the meantime, on my Mate 19.1, I've replaced Caja with Thunar <-which is far mo...

Re: USB flash/thumb drives can ONLY be ejected, but not unmounted in GUI ?

I use gnome-disks (Menu->Accessories-Disks) to unmount without ejecting. Again, @rene I have no problems with "automounting". @DavePlummer.
