Re: Digikam flatpak can't access my files

Generally applies to all AppImages: right-click to open Properties > Permissions and make the AppImage executable (Allow executing file as program)

Re: Difference between Cinnamon, Mate, LMDE, Xfce.

As for LMDE 4 Cinnamon: I don't know why, but the display in Hi-DPI has its pitfalls - Scribus e.g. is simply unusable, even the latest AppImage.
With Mint 20 Cinnamon on the other hand (and with the latest KDE's), with very few exceptions, all applications can be used in high resolution.

Have you considered a mesh chair?
Before I got my elk chair, I bought a nice Italo design chair with nylon mesh fabric: a huge disadvantage - in winter you freeze on your kidneys! and it looks especially stupid with a blanket or sheepskin thrown on.

Re: How can LibreOffice keyboard automatically combine punctuation marks + letters?

There were three things on the Mac that I always missed in Windows and Linux: the quick access to an on-screen keyboard, the long press on the keyboard where - as in Onboard - all special characters appear, and the Lexicon. With Golden Dict (and a lot of grinding of teeth when setting up) the Lexico...

I think they are exported everywhere ... after the auction I checked what the original price would have been: in leather, moose dark brown, with all accessories around $ 1850.-
Was one of the better auctions ... :mrgreen:

Re: How can LibreOffice keyboard automatically combine punctuation marks + letters?

You should find Onboard in the Menu under Accessories. Otherwise search with Synaptic and install it. I have just tested Onboard with Xed and LO Writer: works without any problems. It is worth taking a closer look at the preferences - Onboard can be adapted in a wide variety of ways. Screenshot with...

Re: Digikam flatpak can't access my files

Maybe the Appimage would work better.

Why is DigiKam running with superuser authorization?
Did you start it with "sudo" or something similar in the terminal?

Re: Bitmap Freezes Preview Applications

You won't like the test results for your scanner: the maximum resolution is 1262 / 1825 ppi with scan setting at 3000ppi. Less than half the resolution that you set, and thus result in a bloated scan with no essential content. The settings at 1200ppi or 1600ppi (at maximum) seems to be the best comp...

Re: Faster NFS, PCIe DMA attacks, and undervolting CPUs

About DMA attacks: is that the price for a stable connection? It reminds me of the reviews FireWire (on the Mac) received. Only - in contrast to the nominally faster USB-2 (480 Mbits), FireWire 400 (400 Mbits) delivered almost the promised performance reliably and permanently, as did FireWire 800 la...

I recommend SliTaz.
You can even start it from floppy disks.
Wonderful retro feeling.

Re: Linux Mint 20 Color Calibration not working

It was the Lagom test that finally dissuaded me from pursuing the matter any further, as I discovered I would also need to buy a better newer monitor to get decent colour adjustment. Yes, I know - the Lagom test can be very sobering. On the other hand, I wear glasses - and glasses are expensive. I ...

Re: Linux Mint 20 Color Calibration not working

Two things that also work without problems with a Linux system: the Lagom monitor test and the ECI gray value/gamma templates. Both are aged but still relevant. LCD monitors have become faster and much cheaper - so cheap that I wonder whether packaging, transport and storage will even cover costs. W...

Re: Running Aibecy Bosto Graphics Tablet on Linux Mint

At the latest with your special screen configuration you would have to try out the graphics tablet with Windows or macOS - whether that's even true with the Wacom drivers (Amazon can say a lot ...) and whether it works at all with the HDMI splitter.
