But apparently this does not bother anyone working on MATE.
Personally no, because I'm not even using icon view. You could request arbitrary zoom levels over at https://github.com/mate-desktop/caja/issues.

Re: Emerald Theme Shadow Color Mismatch

So this color is red #AB00FF but it's supposed to be purple... Any color in this realm comes thru red tho. in fact most of the custom colors come through wrong. The default colors come through fine, its the custom colors that are wrong. it seems the color codes are displaying ncorrectly. Can confir...

Re: New Kernel 4.15.18-041518 "unsupported"???

No problem. I'm sure glad I had added the support status tags to Update Manager's kernel window or you might never have known. ;)

Re: New Kernel 4.15.18-041518 "unsupported"???

Sounds like a kernel you installed via Ukuu. Definitely unsupported, and nearly two years old. Do not use. Thanks, I'll remove it asap and I did in fact just install ukuu today! But if ukuu is going to find obsolete kernels and tell me they are new updates then I may just do away with it too! Was t...

Re: gm10's Linux Mint Tools PPA

Ok got it - so I've always got Update manager set to only show it's tray icon when updates are available, so wouldn't necessarily distinguish whether I was using the integrated version or not [...] Personally I think it would be better if the left-hand hamburger was always present irrespective of w...

Re: Intermittent problem - can't rename files in Caja

I do realize it is not a bug if it can't be reproduced... It's still a bug, just much harder to identify and fix then - in particular since the bug may not even be with Caja itself. I tried downloading your video into ~/Videos with youtube-dl while Caja 1.24 was open to that folder, couldn't reprod...

Re: gm10's Linux Mint Tools PPA

It would be nice to have access to the Kernel related Expert preferences directly from the standalone Kernel Manager window. You already do, button in the upper left corner. I think we are misunderstanding each other No, we're not, I said upper left. But you are looking at the integrated version, i...

Is there a way to count the use of my semi-frozen mirror PPA of your tools? It would be interesting to add those figures to your count of your PPA. I'm not sure whether I already asked that before, by the way.... I'm not tracking usage, but I can get the download numbers for any PPA, I've give you ...

Re: Updates?

Software can have security issues and other bugs, the updates are meant to fix those. Whether on Linux or on Windows. Unlike Windows, LInux Mint gives you the choice whether you want to install them, but it should be common sense to do so. You can let Update Manager do it for you automatically (see ...

You're welcome. I have actually since fixed that issue in my forked version of the menu so it works without this workaround - at this point I usually point to my signature, but I have not released that version yet because there's still some quirks I need to iron out.

Re: Grub broken by Mint Update

After failing to boot, a utility called initramfs appears....for which I have no idea as to what to do with this. This is what made me think that the grub bootloader had been damaged during system update. No, that means GRUB works fine, but the kernel interrupted the boot due to an error, usually a...

Re: Grub broken by Mint Update

Sounds more like you switched the boot mode from legacy/CSM mode to UEFI mode. Switch it back (in your BIOS) and you'll likely be able to boot.

When using Synaptic to Delete Cached Package Files is it the same as

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get autoclean
No, it's the same as apt clean. But you don't have to do it manually at all - those cached packages get removed automatically after a few days.
