Re: 40_custom Tail Gone - No Grub Menu

Yes. Same as mine. And those scripts, in conjunction with the GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden setting in /etc/default/grub resulted in no visible Grub menu in my case. Or it did until I added back the previous Mint version's 40_custom override. Is your /etc/default/grub different for that GRUB_TIMEOUT_ST...

Here's my "Christmas-y" fluxbox desktop. (click and then click again!) You mean 132 MB > MegaBytes... RAM for the operating system? :mrgreen: Fascinating. Do you know a method how to use a Linux with Flux on a high resolution monitor @ 3000 x 2000? That would make for a super-fast virtual system. B...

Re: Does this problem happen on your Cinnamon desktop??

Hello, twodogs. BAM! the screen turns black and you are logged out of Cinnamon. This suggests that your graphical desktop crashed. This is why you were returned to the login screen. Frequently such a problem is caused by the graphics driver software. In order to verify you might like to provide ......

Re: Controlling the font in the Cinnamon menu and the panel

I think I have found the problem. Although you can basically define the font used for the desktop, the font used in the theme is fixed. So the topic determines the font in the menu and in the panel. That does not really fit, that one can select the fonts otherwise. I have now changed the font in th...

I have been very interested in Bedrock Linux and wondered if it would actually work with Linux Mint. My dream has been realized!

Re: A London Ad Man's Lessons for Linux on the Desktop

I think Linux Mint is actually relatively good at speaking to a wider audience. I've not seen any Linux do it better, anyway. Except there's no actual speaking outside of the monthly blog posts, that's what I meant with lack of advertising. You can see the immediate result of some publicity from al...

This looks very similar to Adam McBride's concept logo from 10 years ago but with the stems of the M widened.

I used Synaptic. Searched for 'openjdk' and removed all versions except eight (openjdk-8-jre). Works great!
