Re: [Solved] Openshot Upgrade

Hi,

The OpenShot team have a PPA repository. If you install from that you'll get updates as they roll-out and dependencies will be taken care of for you.

ATB,

Re: [SOLVED] Mint 19 Cinnamon: SSD for OS and HDD for storage?

Hi Dan, Why did you choose BTRFS -- especially on the SSD? I've read that BTRFS has some issues with SSD write operations. Did you configure your BTRFS in any special way beyond dropping atime[/b] recording? I chose BTRFS for its support of native snapshots and I use Timeshift to manage those snapsh...

Hi, How did you configure your GMail account? I've been using Evolution on Linux Mint 19 Tara and 19.1 Tessa without issues. If you configure your Google Account in Online Account Settings a GMail account will be automatically configured for you in Evolution. The only problem I've found in using it ...

Be very careful when uninstalling from the Locally installed and obsolete section. There are a lot of required packages that are listed there.

Re: Evolution Mail not connecting to Gmail or Hotmail

When you create a Google account (in the Online Accounts settings) GMail should be configured in Evolution automatically for you. If you cannot authenticate to Google then check your Google account setup. It may indicate that the authentication token has expired. Evolution certainly does work with G...

Re: Timeshift settings opens wizard

That seems to be standard behaviour. I think the error is in providing both a Settings and Wizard icon. There doesn't appear to any other method to configure Timeshift other than through the Wizard interface.

If you select File|Print in Document Viewer (xreader) a standard print dialog should be displayed. From there you can select a specific printer.

Re: Software Source error 'Cannot add PPA'

You add PPAs under the PPAs choice in the Software Sources application using the following format:

Code: Select all

ppa:username/ppaname
The PPA listings on Launchpad show you what to enter for the username and ppaname fields.

Re: Mint 19.1 Tessa, SSH problems

That must be a consequence of trying to connect to localhost which is running a X server. I use SSH between Linux Mint 19.1 computers. It was only necessary to install the SSH server (which also enables it) and enable the SSH ports in the firewall utility (after enabling the firewall - it defaults t...

Re: why there is no dictionary when using amazon reader with firefox?

It could be that the Oxford Dictionary content is DRM protected. By default, handling of DRM protected content is disabled.

Try enabling the checkbox at: Preferences -> General -> Digital Rights Management (DRM) Content -> Play DRM-controlled content

Is this with rsync snapshots? I'm using BTRFS snapshots and recently updated LM 19 to 19.1 and all seems to be working OK.

Re: Updating AppImages to updated versions

Unless the application packaged in the AppImage features an update check mechanism then you'll have to do it the old-fashioned way i.e. website visits or email notifications (where provided). I generally rename the AppImage file to something simple then you can just replace it with the updated versi...

Re: what happened to Desktop Sharing in Mint 19 (Tara)

That is true. I don't understand why vino has been built without gnome-keyring support. It would be convenient to use that instead of having to use dconf-editor to set the password.

Re: email client Thunderbird alternatives?

Evolution is a localised application if you're talking about UI language support. It also supports many spellcheck languages if you have the dictionaries installed.

For a simple, no frills, email client there is Geary.
