Re: Nemo : Hide files with specific extension

Thanks. I'm specifically trying to hide .blend1 and .blend2 files. No biggie, I'll find another way.

Re: Use laptop as an external secondary display

Not mirroring but extending. Would your idea still work? (I don't know what RDP and VNC are and will look it up unless you think it won't work for extending the display)

LM19 Cinnamon: Mouse constant speed

I'd like to change the constant speed of my mouse on Linux Mint 19 Tara Cinnamon. Prior to this version, I used the command xinput set-prop <Device ID> 'Device Accel Constant Deceleration' <Value> but that command doesn't exist anymore. Maybe it's a new version of xinput that removed it but anyway I...

Re: 4G USB dongle (YONIS)

I ended up buying this hotspot to ensure it would work. I wonder if it's as efficient as a direct mobile broadband connection but at least I have some internet now :)
Thanks everyone for trying to help me solve this problem and sorry I didn't fight it 'til the end.

Re: 4G USB dongle (YONIS)

I have changed ISP to one that has better coverage of the 4G network and upgraded Linux Mint to 19 and the dongle is just as buggy as before, disconnecting and re-connecting a random number of times and once settled, showing the Mobile Booradband as unavailable. I'm giving up on this dongle for good...

Quelqu'un a-t-il réussi à faire fonctionner une clé 4G sous Linux Mint et sous quel opérateur? Cela fait plus d'un mois que j'essaie de faire fonctionner la mienne, j'ai suivi les conseils de plusieurs personnes et changé d'opérateur mais toujours pas de résultat. Voici mes spécifications mais je su...

Re: How about Discourse?

The issue for me with Discourse is its space-wasting layout. phpBB displays the title of the thread at the top of every single post as well as the user's signature at the bottom of every single post, thus using more vertical space, which Discourse doesn't do because it has user cards for user info ...

Re: Why phpBB?

where did I argue "against"? Again I just don't know what he wanted to say or even what's his opinion on the subject and I'm literally asking for it. How many times do I have to repeat that? The only thing I'm against is the lack of arguments no matter which side he's in, and whether I mixed his com...

what on Earth now? I don't even know what side he's in, and quite frankly as long as there's no constructive argument in his comment, then it's not very important to me. I just condensed what he said to try and understand it or let him tell me what I got wrong in it. If I got it wrong then one of us...

And whatever your viewpoint is on the subject, can you give some more precise arguments? Generic phrases on the good of change or the good of keeping things the way ...

I moved my argumentation to How about Discourse? as the title is more appropriate and focused on Discourse. But this proves we're not as few as some were thinking.

Re: 4G USB dongle (YONIS)

I contacted them and they told me they don't do tech support for 4G USB dongles. I guess few enough people use this kind of device for it to be poorly supported.
So I'm stuck here. Any help is still welcome.
