What application are you trying to print to pdf from? does it not give you an option to just print to custom dimensions?

Re: is it possible to search the package manager to see availability?

Re: Enable Low Battery Warnings?

Cinnamon has a few issues is this regard. 1) I think that notifications, including the power event notifications are hidden when paying full screen video or gaming, As the panel is also hidden the color changes in the battery applet won't be apparent either. Mitigation - turn on Notification audio ...

Re: Can I install Puffin Web Browser on Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3

It appears to only support Windows, MacOS, and mobile operating systems so it would seem not... is there a particular reason you need to use that web browser over others already available on Linux?

[SOLVED] Enable Low Battery Warnings?

So I often unplug my laptop when using it just for convenience but forget that I've unplugged it especially if I'm watching a film or something and mint will just shutdown with no warning... is there a way I can make it pop up with system notifications to tell me that the battery is running low? :)

Re: How to Install Online games like Rose Online, Cabal, etc.

I'd take a look at Lutris https://lutris.net/ I'm sure at least some of those games will be supported under the windows steam client on wine and Lutris uses pre-written scripts to install games and run them using the most compatible version of wine and also with any necessary tweaks etc. all from a ...

Re: What is your favorite internet search engine and why?

I use DuckDuckGo but I will often use the Google !bang to search anonymously if I can't find what I'm after, I do love their !Bangs though they really are very useful and time saving for searching all kinds of websites.
