[Solved] How to make the panel clock larger

I've been trying to figure out how to make the clock larger on my panel. I don't want everything larger, just the clock. The recommendations that I've found so far will change everything. A good example of a larger clock is found on Manjaro KDE. I really like how it is shown and would like to make C...

Re: Can't remove launcher

I just figured out what was happening. When I type my search query in the menu, it was listing every entry that if found of Cryptomator which includes recent files. So every time I accessed Cryptomator, it created a new entry in the recent files list. I have turned off the recent files feature to ve...

Re: Can't remove launcher

Hey gregory_opera, Sorry about that. I meant to include that in my op. The program is Cryptomator and was installed via an appimage. The program works as expected.

Not sure how to use them as per your previous post. I have Aptik and Aptik-gtk installed. I've used it in the past to make a backup. It looks li...

[Solved] Using wget to download the newest version of Virtualbox

I'm in the process of creating a script to download and install all my currently installed software in the event of failure or new system install. I'm fairly new to scripting, but it's coming along.

Hey Fuzzy,

Thanks for the link. I hadn't found any possible solution for many days, so I decided to replace LMDE without fixing the issue.

Re: Ransomware

Hey Matt,

What if your computer gets infected with Ransomware today and you don't know. Tomorrow you restart your computer and the backup runs as you have stated. Did you just infect your backup???? :shock:

After further review, I believe Carl suggested the same thing.

Re: how to connect to a tv with a hdmi

I thought I'd share another possible solution when connecting to newer tv's. Most of them will have an "Aspect Ratio" option that you can change to properly fit your computer input to the tv. :D

Re: [Closed] How to repair formatted home directory

AndyMH,

I have basically the same thing as you describe and would recommend that everyone have a similar process. I just finished improving my documentation and my backup process. I should be much better protected from any future mistakes and in a much easier spot when it comes to upgrades. :lol:

Re: How to repair formatted home directory

I lost all my Timeshift backups when I accidentally formatted my Home directory. Every once and a while I save a manual Timeshift to an external drive (just in case). The only one I had was from about a month ago. I've gone through the whole setup process and got the system back to where I can remem...

Not sure about creating the new home and then adjusting the auto-mount. New information I reinstalled Mint and everything went great as expected. After installation, I ran a Timeshift restore.
