Re: Disable Alt-Mouse drag

There is no need to install the dconf-editor, this setting is already present in the Cinnamon preferences GUI. Open the window settings -> behavior -> the second last option allows you to change it. Also disabling the feature can be done; there is no need to use another modifier key, if this shall ...

Re: Linuxmint 18.3 & Cinnamon 3.6.6 hung/frozen after power turn off screen

Curious if the problem presents after only the 10 minutes OR after suspend has happened ? I think the 10 minutes screen off. When the screen is turned black. I have noticed several times I could not be away more than 30 minutes. Also, maybe there is a confounding factor. Since Dec 2017 I use the la...

Re: How to remove fonts unrelated to the OS language?

Not quite good enough though. The font cache should be rebuilt after removing all those fonts: sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig Super cool, this avoids a reboot. Overall, the low-tech solution is good enough (disabling fonts using Font Manager). I have updated my original post to include the answer...

Re: How to remove fonts unrelated to the OS language?

...you can find and remove foreign language fonts from either Software Manager or alternatively from Synaptic (Package Manager). A quick'n'dirty method would be to run this on a terminal: sudo apt-get remove fonts-kacst fonts-kacst-one fonts-khmeros-core fonts-lklug-sinhala fonts-guru fonts-nanum f...

Re: How to remove fonts unrelated to the OS language?

Better not remove any fonts that came with the default installation of Mint. They're expected to be present and might be used in unexpected circumstances. What's to gain by removing fonts anyway? :wink: In some applications, where you need to configure your preferred font. For example, try to chang...

Turn off window tiling in System Settings.
Works perfect thanks. Surprising there is a whole dedicated setting for such a thing. Maybe it is useful after all. I wish there is an additional option in that Window Tiling setting, just to disable that auto behavior on the top edge.
