Re: Trying to compile Mate's QtWebEngine package from source, getting errors

I greatly appreciate your help with this, thank you, but trying to compile on the Linux Mint Cinnamon gave the same error. The reason I want to compile this from source is to make modifications to the engine itself. But i won't be able to make changes to the engine if I can't get the un-modified ver...

Re: Trying to compile Mate's QtWebEngine package from source, getting errors

Okay, thanks for the help with this. I think I will try to see if it compiles on a fresh install of Cinnamon, like you said maybe the version is off with Mate. I appreciate the advice, it's funny how hard it is to do this one simple thing, most foss projects are relatively easy to compile.

Re: Trying to compile Mate's QtWebEngine package from source, getting errors

Ah, yes, I would like to eventually like to modify the functionality of the engine itself. But before I can do that, I need to get it to compile without modification first. And I've been having trouble getting that to work.

Re: Error Launching Executables from Desktop or Caja - Mint 19

for example, $ which vlc /usr/bin/vlc when you double click on that file in caja, it won't execute giving the mentioned error message. Because it is compiled as a PIE executable, it isn't properly showing up as an ELF executable, but as a shared library. $ hexdump -C -v /usr/bin/vlc | head -n 2 0000...

Error Launching Executables from Desktop or Caja - Mint 19

This is a matter of convince for me, but I would still like to get this resolved at some point. All executables are showing up as "Shared Library". I did research into this and it appears to be because they are compiled as Position-Independent Executables (PIE) and they are not read properly because...

[SOLVED] Changing Show Desktop Icon

Having trouble figuring this one out. Most launcher buttons are customizable enough to change the icon, except the "Show Desktop" button. It seems to be different from the rest, and I would like to find a way to change it. I started by looking through all the images in /usr/share to find it, there a...
