Re: Libre office install of Flatpak ,how to clean apt version of Libreoffice

Yes, use apt purge against the current LO installation. Then remove the "sources.list.d/libreoffice-ppa-bionic.list" entry from the repos list. Then install the flatpak version. I almost threw up saying that, however. The flatpak version may be newer than the apt version, and it may fit right in wi...

Re: Notifications

The longest you can configure a message pop-up to stay is 480 seconds, but you can keep the logs forever
(stored in $HOME/.cache/xfce4/notifyd/log). The settings docs are here: https://docs.xfce.org/apps/notifyd/preferences

Re: Notifications

I don't think that the Cinnamon notification plug-in keeps a log of messages, but the XFCE one does.

Flatpak remote keeps getting reconfigured

For at least the 3rd time since I reloaded my system (to Mint 19.2 XFCE), I have found that some Mint update is reconfiguring my Flatpak installation to include the (default) system remote. This is extremely annoying, as there's no indication that this has been done, until I need to install another ...

Re: Crontab won't execute any executables inside script

Glad it's working for you. I went through the same thing with my backup scripts; just trying to get a simple pop-up message to show up was like pulling teeth.

Re: Crontab won't execute any executables inside script

Add this to your crontab and try again:

Code: Select all

DISPLAY=":0.0"
XAUTHORITY="/home/tom/.Xauthority"
XDG_RUNTIME_DIR="/run/user/1000"
DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=unix:path=/run/user/1000/bus
I tested this and it worked. I use this for a couple of backup scripts I wrote that are run out of root's crontab.

Re: My Mint cant do bank authorisations

It's unfortunate, but there are still some sites out there that cannot deal with - or, refuse to deal with - Linux. If your bank is having this issue, then you might be stuck. Now, it's possible that a different browser might help, at least in this case. I've found that Brave has less problems with ...

Re: KVM/QEMU - Virtual network won't start - can't install

Once I get that done I'll read your link (thank you) and do some additional work on the new installs. Hopefully this should avoid my having any other conflicts that need to be accounted for (for all I know I messed something up somewhere with another package). So these 2 installs are as clean as I ...

Re: Lot of unanswered topics lately

I think sometimes the new questions are so specialized that it's really hard for anyone to be able to give any thoughts. Prime example is my last question (about the Folding@Home client crashing): if it's only happening to you, then you're kinda stuck. I usually sort by New Messages , but even then ...

Re: KVM/QEMU - Virtual network won't start - can't install

I followed this guide (skipping the terminal creation of the actual VMs) - https://www.how2shout.com/how-to/qemu-u ... orial.html.

Can you explain when you are seeing the aforementioned error? Also, can you post one of your VM configs (under /etc/libvirt/qemu/your_vm.xml)?

It's a known problem with the flatpak uninstall --unused command; so far, I've not gotten an update to my question on this. As far as the Nvidia drivers, you can remove all of the old ones, like this: flatpak remove org.freedesktop.Platform.GL.nvidia-415-25/x86_64/1.4 You can add the rest on the sam...
