Xviewer-plugins Map help

The Xviewer plugin "Map" is listed in the Preferences Plugins list. It is described as, "Display the geolocation of the image on a map", which is exactly what I need! I checked the box but nothing happens. There are no new controls or options like I get when I check other plugins. I tried to find he...

Re: Scroll Bar Elevator click action

Thank you for the two "theme" suggestions. I installed the MATE themes using the Software Manager, but they never showed up in my System Settings Theme dialog.

Re: Software rendering mode + Suspend hangs

Linux Mint 19 turned out to be the ticket. I have had some minor issues, but it works great.

Re: Software rendering mode + Suspend hangs

Thank you so much for your reply! The only reason I didn't install Mint 19 was that I didn't want to be that close to the bleeding edge. It was just released. I will think about Mint 19 vs. the update kernel in Mint 18.3 for Coffeelake... I am leaning toward Mint 19, but want to do some more reading.

[SOLVED] Software rendering mode + Suspend hangs

I installed 18.3 on a new System76 Gazelle laptop, and it comes up in software rendering mode. The Driver Manager has no video driver listed. The System Info has a strange description of the Graphics Card (see attached). The command "lspci -vnn | grep VGA -A 12" returns: VGA compatible controller [0...

Re: How to uninstall non English fonts? LM18

Using the Software Manager, Viewing Installed, and Removing foreign language fonts works, but is time consuming and error prone. I have a bunch of extra foreign fonts that Scribus installed for me without asking. Thanks! The Font Viewer has an Install button for un-installed fonts. I wish it had an ...

Re: [SOLVED] "A Problem Has Been Detected With Your Thumbnail Cache"

I installed Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.1 on a new HD on 3/27/17 and got my first "Fix" button on 3/30. I haven't looked at very many pictures yet. I have had to "Fix" it several times since, sometimes after moving only one picture! I looked at .cache/thumbnails (9,400 items, totalling 56.7 MB) for owner...

Re: Mint on a System 76

I have an older Sys76 laptop that I installed Linux Mint Cinnamon on several years ago. I have done disk upgrades etc since, and have never had a problem. All of the keyboard function keys work.

Scroll Bar Elevator click action

The scroll bar once had single line clickable arrows at the top and bottom, but they are gone. Until recently clicking in the space above or below the elevator on the scroll bar was the same as doing a Page Up or Page Down. In some applications and lists this has changed. It now moves the elevator t...
