Can someone point me in the right direction on how to display a full applications menu like the one you find in XFCE
Hi,

FWIW pressing Alt+F1 brings up standard MATE application menu appearing wherever your mouse pointer happens to be.

Re: QBITTORENT should be the torrent default.

@OP

I shared your opinion but since the latest libtorrent-rasterbar upgrade from few days back is causing app to not start, I no longer think it is commendable.

Re: Computer slowness (often experienced when waiting for a folder to open)

Today, a folder that was slow to open had all text files and 1 PDF. The PDF did have a diagram in it. Yes, well, I don't think that preview thumbnails are generated for text files at all, so it might be what smurphos suspected; that by running several browsers simultaneously and Windows 10 in VM, y...

Re: Computer slowness (often experienced when waiting for a folder to open)

Regarding folder opening slowness, maybe you should clear the thumbnails cache, if those are enabled? I found limiting and lowering thumbnails cache size and age is useful.

Re: How do I fix/reset the graphics software stack?

^Yes, forgot to mention that. I sometimes wonder if it would be better to keep Compiz settings in a flat file format.

Re: How do I fix/reset the graphics software stack?

If all was working with a different profile then you could rename back and use that old compiz-1 settings folder. I don't understand why would you want to use --replace if it hasn't crashed. I use it very rarely and only when it happens that windows decorations are gone and sometimes even that is no...

Re: Ho do I fix/reset the graphics software stack?

I've never heard of a timeshift snapshot. Is that something that would have had to have been done before the problem ocured? Unfortunately, yes. If it is not a Flatpak version of Krita, try purging it. And if it is strictly a Compiz problem, you could either try loading the mint profile https://i.i...

Re: File size, divide by 1000

Caja is the same other than it doesn't ofer the long format - the option highlighted by ColdBootll just switches from decimal with decimal notation (MB) to binary with binary notation (MiB) Yes, but it does display 95621118 B to appear as 91.19 MB when IEC is on.

Re: File size, divide by 1000

As noted, you should definitely look for it in Nemo's preferences.

This is not Nemo, but I doubt it lacks the feature to display sizes either way.

Re: Linux Mint Needs To Urgently Enable Support For Snaps

There is also an official Appimage version of Remmina weighing just 19MiB. http://www.remmina.org/appimage-test/x86_64/ I am a big advocate of AppImage, but I am not sure this AppImage is the best way to go. It dates to 2017, and there have been several updates since it was released. My bad, sorry.

Re: Linux Mint Needs To Urgently Enable Support For Snaps

Well, I for one am very glad that flatpak is supported. I have been encountering more and more situations where the only way I can get something to work in linux mint is to use the flapak version of a program. I don't understand religion very much. I think instead anything we want to be able to wor...

(in MATE's Caja file manager, there is probably a similar thing): Yes, MATE's Caja file manager likewise offers bulk renaming when several files are selected. Edit: not part of official Mate 1.22.0.

Re: automatically get txt extension

You can create a blank xed.txt file in the Templates folder. Then, when you want to create a new text document with txt extension in some other folder, just pick "xed" instead of "Empty file" from the context menu and re-type the highlighted name.
