Re: Image thumbnail for folder

These are the peculiarities of Mate and Cinnamon.
In Mate (or Gnome 2...) you can do things like that.
In Cinnamon?

Re: Having problems with xfburn (I give up)

Sometimes the drive is simply inferior. Price and brand are not important.

Which was your previous Mint?
Very, very carefully asked: Did you happen to load one or more flatpak or snap programs - maybe you could run funny updates or something in the background?

Search with Synaptic Packet Manager for "KDE Wacom" - there you will find a Wacom configuration program.
Maybe it'll help you set it up.

Re: After upgrade to 18.3, cpu load is heavy

Something is quite wrong with your machine. My weak Atom needs about 15% CPU with Vivaldi running on Mate and the temperature is 48° C.

Maybe try Kernel 4.13.xx or 4.4.xx?

Such a thing (however given...) stands around decoratively with me and it would appeal me to convert it as a small Ryzen/Vega Mint system.

Re: Anyone else having trouble installing Vivaldi browser?

I have noticed that both in my native 32-bit system and in 64-bit systems in the virtual box, I click the exit icon in the installation window too quickly . It seems to be fully loaded - but it isn't. Wait a few seconds ( slowly count to ten...) after loading then it should work. A restart won't hur...

Re: Opera Stable is fixed

Apparently there have been complaints in the Opera Forum from many users. In my case about 4 months too late - I have gotten used to Vivaldi and learned to appreciate its advantages. Arrogance, as Opera has done in the last few months, by first kicking out 32-bit (without any notification) and short...

Re: Reminded yet again, why I hate Win10

I don't help people with Windows issues any longer. It's not merely a matter of ethics with me: I just refuse to be a part of the game which makes fools out of its customers by not only fighting stupid battles, but (often) fighting the same stupid battles over and over again. They can with switch t...

Re: music app for android phone to sync with linux??

After disabling Google and Sony music applications (deleting doesn't work on unrooted Android...), I use Odyssey downloaded from F-Droid.

Re: <SOLVED> Will a Linux "Live" USB Drive Wear Out? If so, When?

At this level, the entire hard disk is encrypted. I always do this on SSD's and USB sticks.
Both data carriers cannot be deleted reliably, but without a password only nothing or data garbage is visible.
The people here in the forums argue about this, everyone has to decide for himself.

Re: Were you to buy an AIO for around 60 bucks, what?

Epson ET-2550 WiFi - that's a really fine printer- but costs a little bit more than 60 bucks. The idea with the separate tanks is good, as it was already with the old plotters. My workhorse: a Xerox Phaser 8200DX. When I need new toner or spare parts, I occasionally buy a used one. But the printer r...

On Mac: Easy 3 step setup: 1) Install the Zoom Rooms iPad App, 2) Connect to Zoom Rooms running on your Mac or PC, and 3) Click on "Meet Now" to start.
It's like Signal. Linphone can be installed directly on your Mac - is a normal application. Ring as well.
