Re: Changing login image [SOLVED]

Okay the link pointed me in the right direction. Whatever image you want to use, just copy it to the location:

Code: Select all

/usr/share/backgrounds/linuxmint/<yourimage.jpg>
Reboot, and boom. It works.

Re: Changing login image

In /usr/share/gnome-shell/ the only folder is "search-providers". Assuming you didn't want met to create a 'theme' folder and expected it to be there, I'll have a look at the other solution you provided.

Re: [SOLVED] Where is Shutter?

I fully agree with you when it comes to AppImages. I use an appimage for Joplin notes and it is better. I will have a look at ksnip. Thanks for the recommendation.

[SOLVED] Where is Shutter?

Just upgraded from Tina to Ulyana. I can't install Shutter. The ppa:linuxuprising/shutter doesn't work. How can I get shutter installed on Ulyana? If it's not possible, what's the next best thing? I found 'shutter' to be so simple and to the point..

Re: Slowing to a crawl

@Pjotr I have done a clean install. I must admit, for now things are moving quickly. Firefox takes 26 seconds to launch. This is good for me. I haven't re-installed all my ppa's but most of the applications are re-installed, all my files are back as I used the bakcup tool for this. Pity I didn't use...

Just checking in to give a metric. It takes approximately 2 to 3 mins for Firefox to open. Same for Thunderbird.

Slowing to a crawl [SOLVED]

I am using Mint Tina, 19.2. I have a Lenovo Ideapad, i5 and 12GB ram. I thought this amount of RAM would have boosted performance in a big way but it was ordinary when I just started. The hard drive size is 1TB but it's a dual boot with CentOS. It's cut down the middle 500 GB for Mint and 500 GB for...

Based on what is on the Github article: Apparently, machinectl creates a filesystem which is too small and then fails with a rather vague error message. My / filesystem has plenty of space free.
