Re: IPV6 why won't don't I have it - solved

Well it was a WICD issue. I removed WICD, purged it and network-manager is working ...kind of. I can't get the nm-applet to be installed in the panel. I have to start it in the terminal and then after closing the terminal the applet disappears. Using the terminal, this command nm-applet --sm-enable ...

Re: IPV6 why won't don't I have it

There is another thing I am not sure why it is this way. On the Mate 19.2 my wifi device is wlp3s0 but when I am on the other partition (Rosa) the device is something like wlp0 (it is the one everyone mentions online). I'm bad a network stuff so I have to ask why would that be different??? Also I ha...

Re: IPV6 why won't don't I have it

I give up. I have no idea what is different between my Rosa install and my 19.2 install that makes the 19.2 not IPV6 capable.

Re: IPV6 why won't don't I have it

No specific need but IPV6 is or will become an issue at some point. Some of the companies I do business with are very big and very security conciense. Because IPv6 also supports more-secure name resolution, native support for end-to-end encryption, secure neighbor discovery and other such things it ...

Re: IPV6 why won't don't I have it

I'll check when that computer is free to use. I have to reverse something and that is the WICD on both computers. WICD is not on the laptop that does get an IPV6 address. So I am leaning toward a problem in WICD and maybe in the newer version. The WICD version on Rosa is older and has a different GU...

Re: IPV6 why won't don't I have it

So to add to the confusion. I also have mint 17.3 on another partition and I booted into it. It also has WICD installed as the network manager. When I go to the site to test IPV6 it passes but it I boot back into 19.2 and it fails. I really get involved when I find something isn't working as it shou...

Re: IPV6 why won't don't I have it

I have it on the router, there is an IPV6 address and whenever I test with windows it shows. Disabled. Back in the days of having 17 on the two computers in question, I thing (can't remember for sure) that I used some terminal commands to disable IPV6. Now did I or didn't I do it is what I am really...

IPV6 why won't don't I have it

I am running 19.2 on two different computers. On both computers when testing for IPV6 I get "No IPv6 address detected". Both computers are dual boot windows& Mint. When running in Windows I will get a report for IPV6. If I am on WiFI or Ethernet the results are the same. So why can't either computer...

19.01 mate - how do I go to 19.2

I always like to keep up to date and I see 19.02 is out. I have 19.01 Mate and it runs well.

Does everything about 19 have an auto upgrade, am I dreaming???

Re: I think I am stuck on Mate or is it just me

That is how it feels, it just fits and it all works well. MATE is like that comfortable shoe. It doesn't look snazzy but it doesn't make your feet hurt, either. ;) Although I have to say, Cinnamon has made great progress, a lot of work is being done on it. But as far as integrated desktops like that...

I think I am stuck on Mate or is it just me

Every once in a while I get on a kick to make a partition and check out other distros and DE's. This time I gave Manjaro a try with all their DE's. Ok, not bad but being a DEB guy I wasn't into learning new tricks. Installed Mint XFCE and played with it for a while. It just was't Mate and I really c...

Re: Removing tons of fonts !

I'm jumping in on this font discussion and wonder if there is a lot of font bloat.

Agreed and I still don't know what happened to the non-hidden files. Weird. Almost like an entire folders had everything inside deleted.

Mint 19.1 Cinnamon or mate

I'm not really a newbie, I've been using mint for a while. First used Cinnamon and then Mate. Mate has been my current daily DE. I've always liked Cinnamon but for a while I had an older computer and went with Mate. Plus the old comp was Nvidia and that was always problematic. My current laptop has ...
