Re: Is there a record of package upgrades?

Well the reason I asked is, a couple of month ago at the end of an upgrade I got a UTF-8 Warning at the end of the upgrade, and I wanted to go back and look at it, as there was a word in it, that I didn't understand and I wanted to google the word to find out its meaning.

Is there a record of package upgrades?

LM 18,3 Sylvia, Xfce
Does Linux Mint keep a record of all or at least recent upgrades and updates, in its file system?

Re: Control+shift+u has stopped working [SOLVED]

When I come to the Linux Mint Forum I half way expect to get some help, well that didn't happen, maybe the subject was to complex or not complex enough, or in other words simple. In anycase I think I have it solved. I went to the XFCE Forum and learned in Xubuntu in "language support" in the drop bo...

Re: Control+shift+u has stopped working [SOLVED]

So I go and try my solution and I don't get an underlined (u), plus it lock up my keyboard. Thought it was a hardware problem, turns out it is not. I am highly tempted to completely remove IBus from the computer, and install XIM in its place. Sense I am not going to install Chinese or any other lang...

Re: Control+shift+u has stopped working

I think I have solved the problem. In IBus Preferences under the General Tab>Keyboard Shortcuts>Input Methed click on the three little dots box and delete anything that doesn't say control shift. And insure that control shift is the key board input method. A self-explanatory box will appear. When yo...

I remember back in the day windows OS's had a way for more than one person to use a computer. Everybody could do their thing in there own space, just click it on the panel. Does Linux Mint have something like this?

Re: UTF-8

Well, it's powerhouse's solution. Not essential but worthwhile. Mainly useful as it eliminates a delay when updating the kernel. This was fixed in 19.x, by the way. Pretty silly the locales were archived in the first place. Apparently that's how they come from upstream. What I would call essential ...

Next time you do something so ... drastic ... restore with Timeshift, fix the underlying problem, then update again.
I have never had any luck with Time shift.

Re: UTF-8

Are you talking about this problem ? If so, the solution is to run sudo locale-gen --purge --no-archive . What actually happened, is I had 4 updates, 3 low level, and one level 4 program not a kernel. So I did the upgrade and it got stuck,,,,(It would write a line and write the Warning). And it sta...
