Re: Flatpak listing

Yes, only 2 hyphens. Be careful with this command, though. I've found with certain programs - VLC, to name one - that add-ons/plugins sometimes get removed by mistake.

Re: Timeshift backup

+1 to pbear's reply. Also note that manual Timeshift backups will not be automatically purged like your scheduled backups.

Re: How to backup Linux Mint 19.1 in a dual boot system?

Once you get used to the menus, they really aren't that difficult to navigate. The best was to install Clonezilla is on a USB drive, not through Software Manager.

Re: Install KDE App on XFCE?

Many people who use XFCE also use VLC, which is dependent on some core KDE libraries. I think you'll be OK.

I use Clonezilla to make a complete image of my Win10/Mint19.1 dual-boot system; never had a problem restoring.

Sorry for the late reply; I accidentally unsubscribed from this thread. When you created the launcher, did you select the option 'Run in terminal'?

Re: Move open application windows to another workspace/desktop?

You can also drag the open window that's represented on the panel the same way; it's much easier when you have multiple windows open on a particular workspace.

Re: Move open application windows to another workspace/desktop?

Do you have the Workspace Switcher app added to your panel? If so, just click (and hold) the icon of the window you want to move and drag it to the desired workspace.

Re: Timeshift not restoring settings, configurations and customisations

That's because Timeshift, by default, does not backup your home directory, where all of your customizations are stored.

Re: FYI: new VB update kills my test VM

I guess I was just surprised that I had so much trouble on (3) different platforms after the host install seemed to go so smoothly. I've had issues with GA builds in the past, almost always with latest-and-greatest kernels, but never a kernel panic. Oh, well - at least v6.0.4 is stable for me, much ...

Re: FYI: new VB update kills my test VM

I had to revert to v6.0.4. Didn't see any build errors on my (3) VMs nor on my Mint 19.1 XFCE host; wait, I take that back - it wouldn't build at all on Antergos, but it's using the v5.0.7 kernel so that could be an issue. My Win10 and Mint 19.1 MATE systems both acted stupid after the upgrade, most...

Re: FYI: new VB update kills my test VM

What VM are you running? I haven't tested my Win10 or Antergos VMs yet, only the Mint one. I'll try again and check the build logs.

Re: FYI: new VB update kills my test VM

I haven't done any further research/testing yet. I restored the last snapshot and kept GA at v6.0.4. I'm sure something will be discussed on the VB forums shortly. According to the change log, this update was supposed to fix a lot of the VMSVGA bugs. I've been stuck using the VBoxVGA driver since v6...

FYI: new VB update kills my test VM

Running a development VM with Mint 19.1 MATE. Just got the new VB 6.0.6 update this evening - works great on the host, but the VM kernel panics after upgrading Guest Additions.

Re: script to update HOSTS

The instructions expect you to be in a root shell before starting. Just run sudo su - first, then the rest should work fine.

They're little more than click bait.

Re: Too many nvidia drivers in driver-manager.

The graphics PPA is the (Nvidia) culprit. According to the Nvidia website, your card is supported on the latest version (418.56).

I have no idea what the other PPA is for.
