Re: Disappointing experiences installing Linux Mint 19.2 and 19.1

Hi gm, The point here is that updates are supposedly "not working" in 19.x. I've been using Mate 19.1/2 version for over 7 months now without a single update hiccup, had a system upgraded through your manager and yet again with nothing much to say but praise the team's work and yours too. I think pe...

Re: Do you I think I have made a big mistake by buying a 720p TV ?

The only reason I asked this question here is coz the difference in price between this (720p) TV and 1080p TV was not that great in the store. The sales person at the store suggested that if I watch the TV from a certain distance I won't notice the difference. Then you made a mistake. HDReady looks...

Re: Disappointing experiences installing Linux Mint 19.2 and 19.1

I can spend my time better using an operating system that - not withstanding a lot of of things I do not like - has been functioning reasonably well, is stable, functional (think about hibernation), even has work-spaces like Linux (a very nice feature) instead of having to fight this bug and that b...

Re: caja slow in mate

...and even in latest Mint Mate 19.2 (64bit), with Caja 1.22.1, this (random, but often enough) "BUG" still takes 2 to 5 seconds to reload current folders, EVEN when the (local SSD disk) folder only contains a couple files in it.?! So not sure if it's gvfs upstream, ...? This issue with Caja has be...

Re: Slow copying to USB stick?

I suppose that is a USB 2.0 stick or some cheap 3.0 model. Just because you have new hardware now, doesn't mean that your sticks got faster too. I find the average speeds listed for any vendor/model in https://usb.userbenchmark.com/ reliable. First look there, then compare with the bench results you...

Re: Ejecting usb stick takes a long time

Hi, Since I also face the same "issue" often, I will come up with a different approach/partial solution, though a very fast stick always helps. Namely, I've devised 2 scripts (for Caja but easy enough to alter for use in Nemo): 1) one to calculate the total size of all files selected for transfer: #...

Re: Caja - turn off transfer notifications? [SOLVED]

Yes it wasn't showing in 1.20 and the first time I saw it made me look through the logs. :mrgreen:

Thoughtful they did it, but it would have been better if the actual syncing process was measured and not pumping up some buffer, which always completes 1-2GB ahead, according to my script.

Thanks gm,

A notify-send appears whenever I copy several GB worth of files to a stick.

Caja - turn off transfer notifications? [SOLVED]

Hi,

Anybody knows how to turn off notification for file transfer completion in Caja 1.22.1? Awful wording - "Caja transfer terminated" makes me think that the transfer crashed or Caja crashed, every time. :mrgreen:

Re: How to slow down window opening/closing?

Hi, Your initial feeling is wright. You have to use Compiz as your WM to achieve what you want. Pick the animation effect you'd prefer for Open,Close etc, in Effects->Animations of Compiz Config Settings and set the time to some value that suite your taste. Over 1s, I guess. Though, as far as I can ...

Re: Changing video resolution manually

I think doing it from a script every time at startup is unnecessary step. Once you execute the cvt and xrandr commands in terminal to create required resolution though, you need to go to Displays and select it. At least, that's how it worked for me in one of the older versions of Kubuntu.

Cheers.

Check your blacklist. Otherwise try apt install mint-themes -s and see what it says.
Oh, man, it's true, I have blacklisted them. :oops: I'm not using Mint themes, that's why I did it. Only looked in Synaptic to see if OP can rollback to a previous version, when this popped up.

Re: Batch Downloading Image Files from a Webpage

Well, yes if there is only 80. The problem is, especially when it's the output of a search engine, there are many more. I guess you'll be clicking much more to delete. :mrgreen: Anyways, there are no many ready-made scripts available around. For Google there's this one https://github.com/hardikvasa/...

^Yes, in addition to not being desperate about it, it also makes little sense to download great number of images when you can always cherry pick the few you actually like.

Re: Batch Downloading Image Files from a Webpage

It is easily doable, the sole problem being, you don't really want to mess with Google pictures results. Look what no more that 10s download (I interrupted it) did to me and mind you, these 237 images totaling 146MB in disk space, are a filtered list after I filtered and deleted those smaller than 5...

Re: Tina is beautiful

Upgrade to Tina was flawless and very easy. The same here. I was a bit apprehensive because upgrading to Mate 1.22 from a PPA proved to be an unsatisfactory experience but so far (knock on wood) my fears were all in vain. KUDOS to the team, nicely done! https://media1.tenor.com/images/6e342fca3ea7b...

Yes, Joe is right but, only you can use the srt in Notepad if you "Save as" a subtitle with character encoding set tu UTF-8 and line encoding to Windows.
