Re: Can't get screensaver script to run at start up

Thanks, smurphos. I amended ~/.config/autostart/screensaver.sh.desktop with the line:

Code: Select all

 X-MATE-Autostart-Delay=30 
and now everything works great.

I kicked myself for not finding the default delay in the script, but will pay closer attention next time.
Thanks again for your help.

[SOLVED] Can't get screensaver script to run at start up

Linux Mint Mate 19 Hi, I'm trying to run a script (screensaver.sh) which uses 'feh' and 'xprintidle' to act as a slideshow screensaver. The script is required to be in the same directory as the images to be used in the slldeshow, which on my pc is in Pictures/Wallpapers/. I have given the script the...

Re: Desktop keeps freezing up

Sounds like you have a hardware issue. Also, most people aren't going to download and extract your .tar.gz file. Paste the text between the code tags </> and you'll have more luck getting help.

Can I change delay between slideshow images on mate-screensaver?

Linux Mint 19 Is there a way to change the duration of each slide? The default setting is 10 seconds, but I'd prefer it to be longer, say, 20 - 30 seconds. The mate-screensaver gui doesn't have the option to adjust the duration, and I've also checked out the files below, with no success: /usr/share/...

Re: Vim only works via terminal

Can't get vim to work, but installed gvim which does the job. Looks like the problem is with opening a file into a terminal based editor, as I couldn't click to open files in nano either.

Re: Vim only works via terminal

Nope, the only thing that changed was that

Code: Select all

Ctrl-Alt-T
caused terminal to open directly into vim.

P.s I'm using mate-terminal and caja. They're the same applications I was using with Ubuntu MATE, but I can't get it working. It's really annoying.

[SOLVED] Vim only works via terminal

Within Caja file manager I can't open any files with Vim. Neither double left clicking (after setting vim as preferred application) or right click > open with vim , have any effect, not even an error. From the terminal vim works as expected. The only way I can open a text file with the mouse is to u...
