Re: Evolution not displaying some HTML messages

Re: When will this forum site get a new modern design?

Had a play around this evening. Have put what I've done so far on userstyles. https://userstyles.org/styles/178826/linux-mint-forums-wip Havn't changed any structure, just changing colours, removing gradients and the like and making things green (instead of random yellow and blue) Forum Index - mode...

Re: When will this forum site get a new modern design?

You can tell I've been bored today. Messing around with CSS in Stylus. Didn't actually change much. New header (colours same as the LM Blog), with new logo. All fonts modernised and increased in size to 12cpi+. Separation between posts added and rounded corners removed. Avatar and profiles made bigg...

Re: When will this forum site get a new modern design?

Also, the Xenforo Advanced Search is faster than Google's Advanced Search, and the results are even more impressive than what google suggests. One thing Xen is very good with is indexing without massively impacting the server. Having built and run a forum myself, the search is a balance.. set the i...

Re: When will this forum site get a new modern design?

Corners rounded or exactly rectangular are something of absolutely no matter. And I personally find your proposal ugly. A good search function within the Linux Mint Forums threads would be very useful. each to his own :D For me, i struggle a bit with online reading for various reasons, and curved c...

Re: When will this forum site get a new modern design?

Its quite easy to modernise the theme yourself with a few css tweaks. even little things like removing the rounded corners (which are really ugly) spacing posts out a bit, enlarging the text can make things look more "modern" while retaining the same look I might build a userstyle that flattens and...

Re: 19.3 to 20

In defence of in place upgrades. Ive gone from 17, to 18, to 19 via the upgrade method and never had a problem. (first time ive had any issues at all was 19.2>19.3) That said, since 18.1 ive been using XFCE as my DD but my install is Cinnamon, so come 20 I may bite the bullet and do a clean install ...

Re: linux mint name change

Intel used to trademark numbers that they used in their CPU models (eg 286, 386, etc). Until I judge decided that it wasn't appropriate for a company to own a trademark for a simple number. That's when they started using proper names, eg Pentium, for their CPUs. No, that's a bit of a myth. You can ...

Re: Linux Mint 19.3 'Tricia' What are your First Impressions?

might have found (at least part of) my problem. update-apt-xapi seems to be running with alarming regularity (like every few minutes) and prioritising cpu useage to itself. Turned off automatic checking for updates everywhere for now till i see if thats the problem.

Re: Linux Mint 19.3 'Tricia' What are your First Impressions?

just had a look, xiccd not installed on mine. My other (very minor) grievance is that mint update icon is still showing in the legacy notification area and not in the more up to date status notifier area. (along equally annoyingly with hexchat and evolution). Surprised its not been promoted yet. (do...

Re: Linux Mint 19.3 'Tricia' What are your First Impressions?

Will read through the thread in a bit to see if any have had similar experiences, but 19.3 has not been a happy one for me. My base install is Cinnamon, but I use XFCE as my daily driver, and 19.2 decided it was no longer going to let me have 4.14 from the Xubuntu ppa and insisted I could only have ...
