Re: "Cloning" cinnamon settings

Thanks smurphos. I had got to the dconf dump/load procedure but didn't think to backup the other directories. Your answer certainly solves the question I asked. I am finding that configuring cinnamon via the applets and panels is much more awkward and fiddly now than it was in earlier versions on Mi...

Re: NumLock not activated by default after installation

Re: Error installing mariadb

Just in case anyone else has the 'apparent' problem of not being able to log into MariaDB as the root user I am posting this. I am very aware that this forum is meant to be about Linux Mint and not about MariaDB so I shall submit this as my final contribution on the topic. As I posted earlier, if yo...

Re: Error installing mariadb

Possibly. This is how it worked for me. After i installed mariadb I couldn't start the client. So I couldn't do anything with mariadb. In sheer desperation and frustration I issued the sudo mysql command, was prompted for my sudo password and was given the mariadb> prompt and was able to create a da...

Re: Error installing mariadb

I had similar problems to linx255 when attempting to install mariadb on Mint 18.3 I followed this thread and now have mariadb installed.
