Re: Automatic sleep mode and wake up

Hi, Yes, it puts the computer to sleep when cron executes it at 23:15( as per original post) and wakes it at 07:50 next day and every day. I forgot that it requires administrator's permissions to execute so what you need to do in more detail is: 1. in terminal copy/paste this command: sudo crontab -...

You need to create a cron job that executes the following command at 23:15 :

Code: Select all

/usr/sbin/rtcwake -m mem -u -t $(date +%s -d "tomorrow 07:50")


HTH, :D

Re: Unknown feature

And the same behaviour can be seen in nemo (of course, at last your desktop is shown by nemo!) where it helps to jump to files you know by name (beginning) in a big folder. Having some files starting like "Rolling Stones: ..." type "RO" or even "ro" will avoid a lot of...

Yeah, "tries to be OK. If what I am hearing is true that Ubuntu maintains their own LTS Kernels.... No, they are not, you've heard it wrong. Ubuntu maintains Linux kernels you see in the repos. But it's not like you don't have a choice if you need a different one. Some users here are on 4.11 ri...

We did. Jeremy made me check if 17.04 was really out (somehow I didn't care) which means I can count on patches for 4.10 until January, which is good enough. :D I was all wrong in my previous post in this topic, I admit. :oops:

Re: Change Desktop Icon Font Color

It is doable. Create gtk.css file in your ~/.config/gtk-3.0 directory. Then copy the following into it: .nemo-desktop.nemo-canvas-item { color: #910b1b; text-shadow: 1px 1px @desktop_item_text_shadow; } and then logout, login for change to take effect. Needless to say, I've just fiddled with red col...

Re: LTS 4.9 Kernel

^FWIT, I think they(Ubuntu team) included 4.8 and 4.10 kernels at this time because they somehow complement the main 4.4 better than 4.9 would. That doesn't mean we will not see it available in the near future although that too may not happen.

You must have had started typing something while desktop had the focus. It helps find desktop launchers when the same is cluttered with them. ESC, and it will go away.

Re: LTS 4.9 Kernel

Ubuntu team has a final say on which version is going to be used. What clearly means, that this not an Ubuntu-LTS kernel at this time. My point exactly, not Ubuntu -LTS but LTS per se... meaning, if OP has any use for it at this time, he'll have to download it, compile it, and apply all the patches...

Re: LTS 4.9 Kernel

"Appears so" is a revealing wording. For the Ubuntu based Mint versions the term LTS is mostly understood as LTS for the life cycle of the version of the distro. And as I already pointed out, regarding Mint 18.x kernel 4.9 does not even appear to get as long supported as the distro itself...

Re: LTS 4.9 Kernel

Wherefrom do you take the impression, that 4.9 is a LTS kernel? It is not even mentioned here . Note also, that upstream LTS mean 2 years support, not 5 years, so not quite for the life time of Mint 17.x and far shorter than the life time of Mint 18.x. Just because it is not listed in wiki pages do...

Yes, this is understood Cosmo, but where can be found a comprehensive info about all kernels EOL, if there be such a place? Releases page on kernel.org is not detailed enough (no mention of 4.10 at all).
