Re: Mint 20 Mate Beta Issues, Suggestions

and not some garbage that consistently makes coasters (Brasero). 99.9% of people don't care AT ALL about QT or GTK or KDE. But they care if they can burn a CD or not. Ive' been using Brasero since it first appeared on Mint. Could have been when I started with LM v3.0 Cassandra but cannot remember. ...

Re: Celluloid

I think you may have got things mixed up. xreader is a document reader and celluloid is a mpv player.

Mate Tweak - numlock...

Using LM 193.3 Mate on Lenovo Thinkpad T450s I have Mate Tweak installed with option to show Numlock status activated. The A - I - 9 icon block is shown on the panel but the icons seem to have an agreement to swap places from time to time. For example, yesterday 9 occupied the middle position. Today...

Using LO v 6.0.7.3 on LM 19.3 MATE and right to left highlight and copy/paste work as expected.

Re: which browser you prefer

I prefer Firefox, too. I've tried others: Brave, Chrome, Chromium, Opera, Palemoon, Vivaldi but always return to Firefox.

I like my Boolmarks saved to Folders (see screenshot) and it is easy to arrange this in Firefox.

Re: Laptop as main computer...

My laptop, a Lenovo T450s is dual booting with Windows 7, which I used solely for the purpose of Skyping family members in the U.K. As Skype did NOT work on my Desktop computer, despite following all the advice in the forrums for problems such as this, i didn't even think of trying in on LM on the l...

Re: Laptop Docking station...

Thank you for your prompt response. That was my thought but I was sufficiently unsure that I was right, that I felt it would be better to seek the advice of others. Your answer certainly makes me a happy geriatric :-)

Re: Replacement calendar for the panel?

I realise that this answer will go beyond your simple requirement but hope it is useful. Some years ago I wanted what you are enquiring about but failed to find such a calendar. However, I did discover Osmo! It has a Calendar, Tasks, Contacts and Notes facility but any of them can be hidden from vie...

Laptop Docking station...

Having successfully got my Lenovo Thinkpad T450s laptop using an external keyboard and monitor, I am now considering whether or not to buy a docking station and have one question. There is a large difference between the cost of a dock with a power supply and one without. So my question is: What are ...

Re: Laptop as main computer... (SOLVED)

I eventually got around to connecting my external keyboard, AOC 23"monitor, mouse and USB-HDD to my Lenovo T450s, using a USB adapter with four ports.. Both monitors use a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The laptop monitor displayed correctly but the AOC 23" monitor display showed an enlarged background ...

Laptop as main computer...

I have a Lenovo T450s on which I use LM v19.3 Mate and I am toying with the idea of using this as my main computer - discarding the current Desktop. My first thought was to buy a docking station and use that to connect my present monitor (AOC 27") and all other peripherals to the laptop. However, a ...

LibreOffice Calc - unwanted search icons...(SOLVED)

Using Linux Mint v19.3 Mate and LibreOffice v6.0.7.3 I have a spreadsheet of 8 columns. The columns are sorted quite frequently, e.g. If I want to know how many people of a certain Gender (say M) I search on C as the primary column. Everything has been working without problems until a couple of days...

I have a Moto G7, and I believe both the Power and Play variants are like it in that they don't come with all kinds of bloat, either. The only app that came pre-installed was Facebook, but you can remove it (not just disable it). I love the fingerprint scanner. There is a retailer at the moment who...

I set up a Nokia 7 for my sister-in-law last year: the nice thing is that only Android is on it, no bloatware. And Nokia takes updates very seriously.
Yes. That is one of the things which led me to consider the Nokia.
