Xorg Problems

I've been having issues with Xorg randomly bloating up and slowing down in terms of performance, likely triggered by a service. I'm using GNU/Linux Mint 18.3 (same as Ubuntu 16.04) and my WM is Xfwm4 (with Compton). I'm tired of having to restart Xorg every other minute. I'm not sure what's going on...

Re: Tried the others, came back to Mint. It is good to be home...

Most distros are intended for technical and/or niche sides of computing. With Ubuntu and the like, more of the focus is on the desktop experience, especially if you are coming from Windows. Once you spend at least six months playing around and getting a feel for GNU/Linux, it gets easier to diagnose...

Re: (Thunar) Open Current Folder in Terminal Using a Keyboard Shortcut

Well, I find your tone to be snide, and first impressions are everything. You don't offer constructive criticism, yet you are here in my thread to waste my time, so I will be putting you on ignore. I'll never have to read a single ounce of nonsense you write ever again.

(Thunar) Open Current Folder in Terminal Using a Keyboard Shortcut

This method should work on any DE, although I personally tested this using Xfce. Since the GUI method didn't work, you'd need to edit a file containing this data for the changes to be in effect. 1. Open your terminal and paste the following (you can use any text editor that you wish): mousepad ~/.co...

Re: return to windows emotional support group

Although I hadn't personally installed a Windows OS since purging my sole Windows 7 install almost two years ago, I keep pondering on having a permanently offline machine for the sake of gaming (except for emulation). While one could just consider Wine or a virtual machine (if no suitable native alt...

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

Tried Ubuntu on and off since 2011. Wasn't sure if I was ready yet. Then, when Unity was released, I decided to give it another go. One of the most miserable experiences, ever. I don't understand how anyone in their right mind would think that's a good DE by the slightest. It was then and there that...

Re: The pros of XFCE DE?

In my experience, Xfce is just better than every other DE that I've used (e.g. Cinnamon, MATE, LXDE, LXQt, KDE Plasma). In fact, it's the only DE that bridges the gap between nostalgia coming from Windows XP (or older) and giving it a modern twist with an up-to-date GNU/Linux distro. I like that Sal...

Re: Will April update of Windows 10 destroy my dual booting Linux Mint 19.1?

It's honestly not a good idea to mix the two on the same drive. Get a separate HDD or SSD and dedicate that to just one OS. I wish I could give more support beyond the above. I honestly checked out after Windows 7's "updates" were getting too tiresome for my own liking. Best of luck. Let us know how...

Re: Switched from Windows

Welcome! The cool thing about GNU/Linux is that you don't have to be restricted to one flavor of the kernel. There are so many different variations for different people. Ubuntu, based on Debian, is by far the most commonly used OS, which Linux Mint is built upon. You might've set yourself up for fai...

Re: Approperiate distro for old PC [SOLVED]

Xfce is a good DE to use on an ancient computer (although a tiling window manager such as i3 would be even better), regardless of distro. Ubuntu is the base for Linux Mint (except for Linux Mint Debian Edition), so that is really more dependent on the packaging system. Luckily for you, you can strip...

Re: Linux Mint 17.x reaches end of life in April

I literally cannot bring myself to upgrade from 17.1 Rebecca even though the LTS is about over. It works perfectly on my 2005 HP hardware. To upgrade means leaving my iPod Classic (which I use every day) in the dust. Banshee has so far been the only Linux software that has worked to manually place ...

Re: I do NOT miss winduhs!!

Linux Mint is such a great starter distro. It's funny that it's based on Ubuntu (another newbie-friendly distro), yet I often hear more praise and worship going the way of the former. Why is that? I think for one, it cuts through the nonsense that Canonical likes to put its consumers through (such a...

Funny story. Someone I know had problems with her HP desktop (i.e. Windows 10 would just reload for eternity), so I took a look at it and installed Linux Mint.
