Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

in settings do you have Power Manager? if so open it and you can disable screen locking or suspend, do you also have a security TAB?

Just upgraded from 18.3 to 19 and this particular feature is gone. And I need it badly.
open .bashrc and at the bottom add these lines:

Code: Select all

alias gksu=pkexec

we found out that in mint/xfce the menu button is off by default
open settings > window manager and move the small upside down triangle icon (Menu) from Hidden into Active. here you can rearrange the close,maximize,minimize buttons

@gm10 does the cpu use less % playing x264 compared to x265 ? i am curious about that. i know nothing about integrated graphics, my laptop is about 2 years old but haven't used it much with linux. the mpv config i posted is for stand alone nvidia graphic cards. hopefully the OP has a stand alone, di...
