Re: Snapd in Update Manager.

The search within /File/History did not give any result. Still don't know how snapd came in.
Since nothing seemed to rely on snapd I removed the package and no problem so far.

Snapd in Update Manager. [solved]

Hi, Hope it's not in the wrong forum. Using LM19.3 MATE. As far as I understood snapd is not supposed to be installed in LM20 and previous versions of LM. Wondering how comes that the snapd package is proposed in the updates and wondering how it was first installed. No application using "snap list" ...

Thanks Smurphos, it's working fine
The line is now "inode/directory=deadbeef.desktop;", smplayer.desktop has been removed from the line and is not anymore in the menu :D

Yes, MATE.
Had a look at the smplayer.desktop file, did not see the menu entry or anything related to that there. Let's wait for MATE users :wink:

Re: Open With for folders?

What I am trying to do: I sometimes open folders containing music files with deadbeef, when I right-click on a folder there is "Open with deadbeef" in the menu.

Re: Open With for folders?

Thanks Kester for your reply. Forgot to specify that I'm under LM19.3. The file manager is Caja. Yes, it's about managing the right-click menu for folders. Tried anyway what you proposed but there is no 'Configure custom actions' (or similar). Searches on the net did not give the appropriate answer ...

Open With for folders? [Solved]

Hi,

Sorry if it has been asked before but I did not find an answer here.
Where is it possible to manage the 'Open With' properties for folders? There is such tab in files properties, but not for folders.
Thanks.

Open a file from the panel? [solved for MATE]

Hi, Newbie question it is. Was searching about how to open a file from the Panel. There are some explanations in links like https://blog.softhints.com/linux-mint-add-shortcuts-panel/ , but it requires the panel launcher and 'Files' in Accessories that is missing in my LM 19.3 Mate. Tried with a shor...

Hi all, Read the same about deadbeef, but wondering if this player is reading these .dsf files correctly without DAC?!?! Or it might depends on the sound-card capabilities?!?! Edit: LM19.3 and latest deadbeef version (1.8.2), no DAC. Tried several output devices in the preferences, deadbeef is not a...

Re: FYI: qTox (Qtox) secure multimedia messenger installation

Now that several countries request their citizen to be confined, too bad to see that qtox does not propose any new version (latest from mid 2018) and any alternative to the very often (too often) mentioned skype.

KeepassXC 2.5.1: cannot set the auto-type sequence

Hi, So far I was using keepassxc manually (copy/pasting usernames and passwords) for sites I wanted to access to. Now trying to use the auto-type function, and, nothing happens :( It's about keepassxc 2.5.1 under LM19.2. For a given entry (this forum for example), - 'Enable Auto-type for this entry'...

Re: FYI: qTox (Qtox) secure multimedia messenger installation

Hi phd21,

Sure it helps!
Thanks for your long reply and the updated scripts.
Not that I'm using much this application, but, as noted, it is a great alternative to skype. The hardest is probably to convince others to make the change.
It would have been a bad news if the project has been stopped.
