Re: Star Trek: Picard... who here is planning on watching it?

Hm... The Expanse is not particularly in your face especially this last aired season and it was a bit of a slow burner since inception. Yet it is well accepted because the story is good and coherent enough. Picard is neither because they couldn't think of anything better and less silly to start plot...

Re: Desklets for XFCE

Afterthought: in case you need an alarm clock to put yourself and the machine to sleep and wake you both at specific time in the morning, you can try this script I've been using to do so: #! /bin/bash wakemeupat=$(zenity --entry --title=Wakeup time... --text="Hours:Minutes") sudo rtcwake -m mem -u -...

Re: Desklets for XFCE

+1 for Conky. There is a large assortment of ready made clock scripts to be found for it. Just look around to find which one you like/fits best on your desktop

Re: Huge Problems with USB Stick (aka flash drive)

Truth be said all Linux file managers suck at it. On the other hand, this can be an indication that the stick is failing.

Re: Huge Problems with USB Stick (aka flash drive)

Have you tried Testdisk yet? Seems to be doing just that. Maybe worth looking into. https://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/Undelete_files_from_NTFS_with_TestDisk Sadly, Testdisk seems to be one of these complicated back-together-stitchers.

Re: Huge Problems with USB Stick (aka flash drive)

Sadly, when I spent quite some time today looking for an undelete option, all I ever came across (even when called "undelete") was NOT the reversal of deletion but complicated iffy file recoveries from crumbled filesystems by stitching their blocks back together. (sorry if my vocabulary has degrade...

Re: Huge Problems with USB Stick (aka flash drive)

Perhaps this is the same stick only in smaller capacity? Not very promising 2 years warranty.

Re: Huge Problems with USB Stick (aka flash drive)

Questions : 1. So, file copies may not have been finished even though I always waited for Nemo's copy progress popup to disappear and then (usually or always? -- not sure anymore) checked the file size on the USB stick to be the same as the original on the hard drive? 2. Why would an interrupted fi...

Re: Huge Problems with USB Stick (aka flash drive)

Hi, Maybe you have pulled out the stick prematurely at some prior session which corrupted the file system, ergo, the unknown partition table , shows up? Nemo's copy progress dialog is quite unreliable when it comes to determining when the copying has finished. Truth be said all Linux file managers s...

Re: The Mint Café

We can disagree on this, it's fine. We do not all need to have the same point of view. You don't need to keep repeating yours. Just be aware that if you ever meet my partner and say this to him, he will not be best pleased... and there may be others like him. I speak from experience too... Often ti...

Re: The Mint Café

My partner has limited mobility. It would make no sense, and it would not be a kindness, to tell him that he can definitely run a marathon if he just works really hard at it. Oh yeah? Well, this guy seems to disagree strongly with that point of view. :mrgreen: https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-lond...

Re: Mate vs Cinnamon

There are many Mate fans that have more than enough CPU and RAM to easily run Cinnamon with no performance impact that would never switch - I personally know a couple, so . . . :wink: Basically. It's mainly the workflow - things are mostly where I expect them to be, unlike with Cinnamon, where I al...

Re: how to force programs to open in background?

Maybe some programs can start minimized with a command line switch, but not all are built that way. Regarding Devil's Pie, it can be done. :D You'll need to create an empty lua file e.g. my.lua inside ~/.config/devilspie2 then for Libre Office, copy these lines to run it initially minimized if strin...

Re: how to force programs to open in background?

No, you don't have to reset anything. If you run that snippet in terminal window, it will minimize it. The drawback to using it is that it works only when the desired application's window is already visible, otherwise the wrong window will get minimized. So, the launcher command would also have to w...
