Mint 19.2 beta, some weird issues

Running Tina I have been running the bleeding edge repos for weeks. I have had two problems so far. I had to reinstall caja after one update. I could not make a folder and do a cut and paste.

Re: New version of Linux Mint (Have you tried it, yet ?)

I installed Ubuntu 18.04 and enabled Tara with Linux Mint Pinnings.
I have been running it for 2 weeks with no problems at all.
Hard part was with installing and configuring the new wine version.
To run Adobe AIR.
I will still check out the iso when I comes out on Monday. :D

Re: Missing Tabs and Entry Boxes

I put Tara in a week ago and all was fine till an update a few days ago.
Just thought you might want to know.
I have since gone back to 18.3 for now.

Invest applet

I am running 18.3 and the invest applet doesn't update.
The server could not be contacted. The computer is either offline or the servers are down.
Try again later.
Any ideas ?

Mate Weather Report Panel Applet

I would like for this applet to use its own icon folder.
Right now it uses the themes icons and they are not standardized.
If it did I could then change the icons to anything I wanted.
Without trying to change the icons in every theme.

Re: Caja triple click to open folders

Running 18.2 mate with caja and it seems to be a theme thing.
If I run Green Laquna it takes three clicks to open a folder.
When I load Adwaita it takes only two clicks.

Sure would be a great help to more than just me.
Thanks in Advance if you could.

Re: MInt 18 suddenly crashing - when versions 17 stable

sudo xed /etc/default/grub A bad - even a wrong - advice. The general rule is: Never launch any graphical program via sudo, this will create troubles in the user account. Any graphical program may only get started with elevated rights via gksudo (kdesudo for KDE desktops). Exact quote: "GKsu is a G...

Re: Bluetooth in Linux Mint 18 makes me cry

What I have read is if you have head phones.
You have to use Bluez Version 4 or earlier.
If you have Version 5 it no longer supports Headphones.
So best suggestion would be check which version you have and downgrade it and see if it starts working again.
