You must have installed the Flatpak PPA.
I don't remember doing so yet I might have.

Any reason we don't have newer version on Mint?

Flatpak Version in Linux Mint 19.1 Repositories

Hi,

How come the Flatpak version in Linux Mint 19.1 is 1.0.8 while in Linux Mint 18.3 we have the latest (If I remember - 1.4.x)?

Could anyone fix that?

Re: newb here hello to all. Adjusting the scroll function on mint

I have the same problem with Linux Mint 19.1.

In the posts on AskUbuntu they have v8.0 of the transceiver driver while for some reason in Linux Mint 19.1 I have v7.0.
They seem to have different properties.

If you found a way to solve it, please share.

Re: Why phpBB?

I find the Discourse platform to be amazing.
The ability to use MarkDown, the ability to see sub threads within a thread, Quotes mechanism, all is top notch and will make the experience of finding information and discussing at the forum much better.

I really hope you will make the move to Discourse.

Re: FlatPak (FlatHub) Application Installation - Destination Folder Path

Actually if you read the XML fields you;d see it requires Admin Auth.

I think it is in the other file which grants it permission.

Re: Flatpak KeePassXC problems

I think you should have opened an issue in the FlatPak project: https://github.com/flathub/org.keepassxc.KeePassXC Try run it with the flag --filesystem=home . The way it is configured currently it seems it can only interact well with /tmp . What you're experiencing is the security measure of the Fl...

Re: Software Manager in 18.3 ... Wowzers!!!

Is there a reason why the Software Manager in Linux Mint 18.3 can install applications in folders which requires root privileges for write permission without asking for root password? I can see it installs FlatPak applications in /var/lib/flatpak/app/ yet it doesn't ask for password. I even closed i...

Re: Rollback to Linux Kernel & Linux Firmware Prior to MeltDown & Spectre Fix

Since those are irrelevant for the end user (Single User of a computer) I hope in Linux they will switch all of them OFF by default. I really hate those performance hits. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/KnowledgeBase/Variant4 In Ubuntu, SSBD is OFF by default because it is not needed by most p...

Re: [SOLVED]How Can I Display the Grub Menu?

@banjo,
The single # you added (Before GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0) is exactly the default for Linux Mint 18.2 (At least that what I got out of the box).
In Linux Mint 18.3 they uncommented it by default.

I was talking about the reliability of the NTFS drive in Linux Mint. I have an HD I would like both Windows 10 (18.3) and Linux Mint 18.3 will be able to access and share data on (Dual Boot). It is not the Boot Drive of Windows 10. I'm asking if the NTFS driver of Linux Mint (I guess NTFS-3G) is the...
