Re: New Build in coming

Consider it an early x-mas gift for the girl. I hope she is as delighted with her phone as with her generous daddy. I know a couple of people who got one of those. Several had really old Apple phones really worn out. People seem to do long with iPhones. One friend showed how the new phone can record...

Re: New Build in coming

The poor girl! An iPhone 7! You'll be responsible for any mental damage for her having to use such an antiquated phone in front of her friends!

Re: 19.2 slower boot than 18.3 and oversized icons

Curiously all my boot times are slower now. I cloned 18.3 to the 850 EVO and are in the 16"s at best. Also the 830 is slower, inside or out the laptop. The couple of seconds rationally seen aren't the biggest problem. But, I often use this machine to check for something, then waiting for it to be po...

Re: Google Chrome no longer opening maximized

Hi, Add --start-maximized in it's launcher command box. I just found this switch here . Curiously I am now unable to edit the Panel launcher. I then edited the menu launcher and this seem to help for the panel launcher (which has the switch --incognito) as well. Thank you both. When you edited the ...

[Solved] Google Chrome no longer opening maximized

Suddenly Google Chrome is no longer opening maximized, whatever I try. I tried searching for a setting hidden in .config but could not find it, if it is there which I don't know. I'm out of options.

Re: encyrpted Mint alongside bitlocked Windows 10

I'm afraid it's not of great help but I'll share what I know and I do know an encrypted Linux on a smaller disk can be cloned to a larger disk leaving space for whatever. But then I still wouldn't know how to have a Windows on it and a bootloader selecting one of them. But it is possible to manually...

Re: Do you I think I have made a big mistake by buying a 720p TV ?

1080i is in fact just the same as 720p. Only 1080p gives you true FHD tv. Cable providers compromise on quality to save on bandwidth even if it is fooling the customer. For best TV quality use a satellite receiver. However often the FHD channels are subscription only.

Re: what mail client do you prefer

At the moment I use Claws Mail. It is rather plain which I like but still has useful functions. Email collection on multiple accounts is slower than from other clients I used. I use POP3 because I always did but with numerous systems this is not most practical. I have a computer in a place where I s...

It's too bad the card and stick default has become FAT. Ext4 is so much better.

Power management config files location

I am looking for the power management config files. Not the power management tool from the menu, but the location of the config files so that I can edit these by hand. Searched everywhere, tried google, could not find them.
