Re: How do you create symlinks via GUI?

On Nemo you can also simply drag'n'drop the file while pressing Ctrl+Shift in to the same folder or into a different folder.
It can't get simpler than that!

Re: How can I disable the Fn key?

Unfortunately, nor the Fn+NumLock nor the Fn+ScrLk solves the problem. The first one transforms the 'k' into '2' without any modifier, and the 2nd still continues to make Fn+k to work as an arrow. Many times when I'm typing 'k' (without Fn), it makes the cursor move erratically. I tried multiple com...

I was able to solve the problem: by checking the scripts /var/lib/dpkg/info/desktop-file-utils.postinst /var/lib/dpkg/info/mintbackup.postinst I discover they executed "update-desktop-database", and by running this command it blocked. by executing "update-desktop-database -v" I detected the blocking...

Re: Post installation triggers of the updates of desktop-file-utils,shared-mime-info,mintbackup block

Since I'm a long time software developer, in other developer areas, the most advisable action is install the latest stable software version to prevent security issues.

Re: Post installation triggers of the updates of desktop-file-utils,shared-mime-info,mintbackup block

It's hard to trace back the reason, but at some point in time long time ago, the kernel shipped with Linux Mint didn't had a certain feature or security patch, again it was long time ago, ever since I use ukuu to ensure I have the latest kernel. Since I'm a long time software developer, in other dev...

[Solved] How to configure nemo to search also subfolders starting with dot

Hi,
If I have a subfolder named 'sub' and another named '.subdot',
nemo (3.8.6) search files tool will find files inside of 'sub' but not '.subdot'.
Is there a way to configure nemo to also search inside subfolders that start with '.' ?
Thank you

Re: [solved] Apache+PHP7.2+Gettext doesn't work on Linux Mint

After many attempts, I discovered that on my linux mint, it works if I add '.utf8' at the end of the language.
ex: $language = 'en_US.utf8';

On my linux webhosting provider and on XAMPP running on Windows this isn't required.

Re: Can't have steam and brackets installed

Hi,
If you install brackets from https://flathub.org/home, you will have brackets running in an isolated environment.
You will need flatpak, which is already included on Mint 19.

Re: Video Editor

If you are going to use kdenlive, and prefer to have the latest versions, my advice to install it from flathub: https://flathub.org.
if you use PPA the updates come much later, or if you use appimage, you won't have the easiness of the updates.
