Audiophiles wet dream

Good evening. I'm fairly new linux user and learning new stuff bit by bit. I've being more or less into Hi-Fi sound systems and trying to obtain as good as possible what comes to sound quality. If any of you have heard of A.R.I.S.E Magnus opus or Viper4android sound mod for android devices, that's w...

Re: Mate to xfce?

I'm getting quite frustrated with this now because it's starting to feel like internet browser is the only app that works properly. Is it possible that this issue has got something to do with root/user privileges that have gone somehow in a wrong form in some files? It would be very interesting to d...

Re: Mate to xfce?

And now that i wanted to install conky from software manager, it wouldn't do anything when i clicked the install button. If i understood correctly, software manager should open without asking a password but when one tries to install something, it ask's a password. In my case, nothing happens when i ...

Re: Mate to xfce?

And installing more than one DE is a really bad idea. No really knowledgeable user would do that FUD kills the forthcoming Mint-sanctioned KDE install over the top of Mint Xfce for release 19. Not if it entails a complete removal of the Xfce packages afterwards. I presume you're referring to the an...

Re: Mate to xfce?

Thank you for that, a very clear answer. In any case i'm not going to run two DE:s at the same time, regardless what anyone says about it. I'm demanding that the OS is suitable and runs as smooth as possible in these conditions. Here is my inxi output: jouko@jouko-Satellite-L300D ~ $ inxi -Fxz Syste...

Mate to xfce?

I've been studying about this upgrade 18.2 to 18.3 and decided that i'm going to do the upgrade. I'm using a mate version now and as i have an low performance old toshiba laptop the xfce version probably would be better for this antique machine. So is it possible to change from mate to xfce with the...

Re: How to disable screen blanking?

I'm also having this annoying issue with LM18.2 mate, and as everyone else, i also have tried every possible setting with no success.

When i run that command that BG405 gave, it returns "0"
Nothing else.
Has anyone come up with a solution?

Re: Update manager doesn't work

That's probably the issue here. I ran that command in terminal and now if i open the users and groups window it let's me change the name of the user and the password but nothing else. Those two are the only thing's it let's me change. I no longer have issues with update manager so this is starting t...

Re: Update manager doesn't work

I have only one profile.
I can open the users and groups window from menu--control center---administration--users and groups, but i can't change anything from there.
What's the command in terminal if i open users and groups in there with sudo command and then change the settings?
Is it ok to do that?

Re: Update manager doesn't work

I did some research and managed to do something right, i guess... The situation was that in the right lower corner(notice area or something like that) i had a picture of shield with an "i" in it and when i clicked it, the update manager launched and said that there is 2 updates available, so i check...
