Re: LM 19 Mate - issues encountered

Hmmm - thank you, I think. So if even "Clem himself" will tell me to do a fresh/ clean upgrade, then why would Mint list an upgrade from 18.3 to 19.0 path unless they were interested in the user experience of doing so. Personally, I'm not concerned about you. However, I am concerned about the studen...

Re: LM 19 Mate - issues encountered

A clean install means disregarding the upgrade from the 18.3 path? So, again, did you want to posit your objections to Clem so that they can improve the upgrade from 18.3 process? Thank you. But I followed the recommended upgrade path. If you have a better suggestion (I.e., from scratch), then you s...

Re: LM 19 Mate - issues encountered

That's why I dislike these often heard swappiness recommendations when most people don't even know what that parameter is about. Well, that's all well and good. Perhaps you should post your objections as prominently as the guy who recommended the change to the swappiness level. I'm happy to read a ...

LM 19 Mate - issues encountered

Recently installed LM19 Mate. Pretty smooth process, but for me as a user, not sure that it's an improvement on 18.3. I use Mate, on a 4 core AMD64 4.00GHz with the 4.15 kernel and 62.8GiB RAM. Issues related directly to Mate? : Have come across an issue (https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f...

Re: Vertical scroll bar arrows

Thanks for the reply.

Quite possibly I am old school, but I do like the arrows. Any suggested fixes for the GTK3? I can only track down suggestions for GTK2 and don't want to mess things up by hacking a config file with the wrong instructions.

Re: LM19 and themes

Thanks gm10

Unfortunately attempting to reinstall themes didn't work. Scouting around the web, there do seem to be a number of reports about broken themes, so I'm sure that this will get fixed at some point.

LM19 and themes

Have just upgraded in-place to LM19 from LM18.3 - process went smoothly, so thanks to all of those wizards who made this such a cool distro!! A small matter of aesthetics: windows seem to be missing the colour at the top (using Mint-Y + Sand) and I cannot figure out how to get that back. Are others ...

Vertical scroll bar arrows

Hi LM19 ('Tara') with Mate. For a while now, Mate has not included vertical scroll bar arrows. Before I had found a hack that enabled me to include some lines of code which, when I logged back in, magically inserted vertical scroll bar arrows. However, that hack no longer seems to work. Does anyone ...

Back In Time - Daily schedule

Have just done an upgrade in place from LM18.3 to 19 - flawless: thank you to all involved in keeping this distro so tip top! I've been exploring back up utilities (had to use timeshift for the upgrade) and have now settled on Back-in-Time: does what I need, so all cool. I have BiT scheduled for dai...

Hi (again) Cosmo Thanks for following up on this. As noted in the OP, as I never had a chrome css in the first place, I do not understand what has happened that would now require me to generate a css to serve as a solution. I had come across the post you referred to, along with several like it, and ...

Re: Thunderbird 52.6.0 folder names changing colour when new emails arrive

Hi Cosmo

I should've mentioned that I did do that via the command line:

/usr/bin/thunderbird -safe-mode

and no change. I'm pretty certain therefore that it's not an add-on issue.

Thunderbird 52.6.0 folder names changing colour when new emails arrive

Hi everyone Bit of a strange one here. LM 18.3 Mate, using TB 52.6.0. When a new email arrives, the folder name in the left hand folder pane goes white rather than black. The font is still bold, but just white. This is for IMAP and POP accounts. This doesn't happen on my second machine with the same...

Re: Mounting 2TB Seagate USB drive in LM18

I would hate to suggest that someone damage their hardware. No worries - I was using the word loosely. There are a number of on-line vids that suggest ways of opening up a Seagate drive case not all of which involve the use of a sledgehammer :) I think that I will use the enclosure as an external d...

Re: Mounting 2TB Seagate USB drive in LM18

I see now.

This would then be used once I've cracked the plastic Seagate case to retrieve the drive, then just insert the exposed drive into the enclosure? Is the SATA connection on the inside of the enclosure (I can't see any images of the internals)?

Re: Mounting 2TB Seagate USB drive in LM18

Thanks again. I wasn't aware that inside the case it would have a SATA connection. I will buy one from the link I shared and open the case. It would be more convenient to run it via a USB, so I'll go for that option if possible. With a bit (a lot?) of luck, I'll be able to access my files and can tr...

Re: Mounting 2TB Seagate USB drive in LM18

Thanks for the staying the course on this. An update on this and a further query. I have now plugged the drive (and done so using different USB connection cables) into 2 different LM18 boxes, 1 LM17.3 laptop , Win XP and Win 7 laptops. The two Windows laptops didn't pick it up. On the two LM18 boxes...

Re: Mounting 2TB Seagate USB drive in LM18

Hi there
The 2TB Seagate is connected and is the one I want mounted. The light is on, the USB is plugged in, but there's just no actual mounting.

Any thoughts on this?
