Re: Flatpak refuses to update a package

In any case, until we find a solution for this, here's a workaround to reset your menu to its original Mint settings: cp /usr/share/mint-artwork/xfce/xfce4/panel/...

Many other devs forked your project on Github and we're using the version from https://github.com/Wohlstand/Whats-Desktop. I didn't realize the credits hadn't been changed when the project was ...

Re: [Fix available] Window manager xfwm 4.13.0 broken after last mesa update

Yes, that's why I'm a bit puzzled..

Re: [Fix available] Window manager xfwm 4.13.0 broken after last mesa update

@electric: Try to downgrade to 4.12 using the following command:

Code: Select all

apt install xfwm4=4.12.3-1ubuntu2
Let me know if that works.

I'm also interested in the output of the following commands:

Code: Select all

inxi -r
inxi -Gxx
dpkg -l | grep mesa
