Re: Thunderbird 60 Released

Yeah - I was wondering when/if this is happening. Is it being saved for 19.1 for some odd reason?

Re: Does anybody still use DVDs?

Yup. I do. Quite a lot of content I follow only comes out in DVD/Blu-ray and if it is available streaming tends to be only a short time. So if I want something that I know I'll want to re-watch in the future or don't have to make sure to watch as soon as it is available. I do that way. That said I d...

Re: New Dropbox System Requirements

I can't say I'm thrilled at what they are doing but I'm breathing a short-term sigh of relief that my respective work and home systems would seem to be within the new requirements.

But long-term, I'm definitely looking at some of the alternatives discussed here.

Re: Thankless Job of Moderator

Testify! Thank you Mods!

I know only too well the patience and hard work it takes - years back I was not only a mod on big forum but head mod coordinating a team of moderators on it. The happy dance I did when after several years of that I decided to step down - shook the neighborhood!

Re: Time for a little bit of reading!

And given the state of steaming media I expect the bidding war between Amazon and Netflix to start for making a series based upon the premise.

Re: Dropbox - flatpak or software manager

I think you should be fine with software manager version.

Once you install it - Dropbox updates itself regularly. At least it certainly has for me.

Agree with the consensus that you should definitely stay around. You'd be missed and are definitely a valuable addition.

Re: Bug with Firefox Version: 61.0.1+linuxmint1+sylvia

Can't say that it helps except for elimination since I don't have that problem in 18.3 Cinnamon (Sylvia) running the latest firefox. (and I'm using the 4.15 kernel)

So maybe it is KDE?

Re: Clean install cinnamon 19 fails to install grub

Check out this announcement thread viewtopic.php?f=90&t=273058 for advice/details.

Short version - it's a known problem - you need to install without being connected to the internet. Then when installation is done, re-connect your internet connection and run updates.

Between the mesa thing recently, the kernel and the grub install issue - that is a lot in a short time. I'm chalking it up to the pressure of the new 18.04 release and trying to prep the .1.

Re: Kmymoney 5 locale on Tara Cinnamon

I don't use it as my primary but for some old closed accounts so ignore me as ignorant if what I say isn't relevant.

In Kmymoney - did you go to Settings Menu, select KDE Language Setting and then go to the tab country and set that and then go to the Date/Time tab and adjust as needed?

Re: Grub EFI amd 64 signed signed package fails on clean install mint 19

In case anyone is interested I took a peek at the ubuntu forums and lots of folks reporting the same problem fresh installs of ubuntu with the grub and with the same temporary solution (install sans internet.)
