Re: Irfan View in Wine problems

I wasn't sure if Wine was 64bit or 32bit so I choose the safest way.

Irfan View in Wine problems

On a new 18.3 XFCE64 install I have problems with Irfan View running via Wine. I installed this Mint on a new SSD, later connected the existing hard disk drives. On the 'old' Mint I had installed Irfan View in Wine and set it as default viewer for jpegs. This works flawless. In the new situation I i...

Re: Mouse pointer size varies

I still have this issue more or less. On one system most of the times it's how it's set, on another system the size varies continuously, even within one window. I had applied above suggested settings in Dconf-editor, which was promising but not the final solution. On a fresh Mint 18.3 the problem wa...

Re: Mint 20: restart button invisible after updates

On a fresh Mint 18.3 install I was confronted with the same: different power icons. How could it be that all my current installations had neat black/grey buttoned power icons, the new install coloured icons from a different style? I copied all icons from existing 18.3 to new 18.3, but alas, the icon...

Hi RV,

Was this one of the things you tried? You'll need to log out/in afterwards most likely.
It did the trick, thank you very much MrEen!

Compiz with vertical deskbar not recognized by windows

This is about Mint 20 FXCE.
The panel is in deskbar mode and vertical on the left of the screen.
After activating Compiz any window that is opened is not lined up at the panel but goes behind it and is lined up at the edge of the display.

Downloaded and extracted Waterfox not running, why?

I have downloaded and extracted from the compressed file Waterfox-current, latest version. However clicking the supposed 'waterfox' executable doesn't do anything. It doesn't appear as an executable to the system apparently, as when clicking it the system pops up an 'open with' window. Downloading a...

Re: Mint 20: restart button invisible after updates

I had changed the theme to Mint-X because I liked it on Mint 18.3 I had noticed Mint-X on Mint 20 is not the same as Mint-X on Mint 18.3. Mint 20 Mint-X has rather fat icons where on Mint 18.3 Mint-X they are more subtle. Could the problem be with the Mint 20 icons? On a test Mint 20 I have simply c...

Re: Mint 20: window unmaximize after hitting window top edge

Well it doesn't on my 18.3 no matter how hard I click and drag on it. Thing is, it's not just activating, I might go to the menu and click next to it on the title bar.
Come to think of it I have Compiz activated on that one, might have to do with it.

Re: Mint 20: restart button invisible after updates

If "Shutdown scheduled for ..." is normal then yes.

Anyway I just did a new install to try if it would reproduce.
Changed the system theme to Mint-X. Changed the icon theme to Ubuntu-Mono-Light.
Applied all the updates. After reboot the icon was invisible again.

Mint 20: window unmaximize after hitting window top edge

On Mint 20 I have experienced the windows unmaximizing while moving the mouse when clicking the top edge to activate the window. Since I am highly inaccurate with mousing this happens all the time. I can't find a setting to disable this behaviour.

Mint 20: disappearing and very thin scrollbar in Thunar [solved]

On Mint 20 XFCE I have a scrollbar that's disappearing, very thin when the mouse pointer moves and when it hits the area becomes slightly wider. By that time my mouse pointer went way over it as I am very inaccurate with mousing. I have tried the scrollbar fixing from Mint 18 and Mint 19 but that do...

Re: extra partitions in mint 20

I did a side by side legacy installation next to Windows 10. I had empty disk space available and prefer to have the automatic option from the installer to avoid issues with the bootloader.
I was also confronted with a 538mb FAT partition.
This is really weird if not plain ridiculous.
