Then please start a new thread instead of hijacking this one.
I'm not hijacking his thread I'm reinforcing it! Why would I start a new thread about the same problem at basically the same time when there's already one going?!

Re: Artifacts when moving window

I'm getting this the last few days too. It seems like since the new updates along with the 4.15.0-50 kernel. I tried booting back to 4.15.0-48 but that had no effect..

Re: A little help/info needed with free old telescope I got..

Hi, I have also just started using Stellarium and found http://stellarium.org very useful. There is also a forum on Source forge but it has annoying pop-up ( to accept cookies) about every 30s. Toony Celestron Sky Portal (android app) is really great too.. I've since discovered that this Galileo sc...

Re: Ikea is taking over the world!

We had one open a short distance away near Milwaukee. Now we have the bedroom and my wife's sewing room full of it. I will say that the stuff is machined with very precise tollerances.

Re: A little help/info needed with free old telescope I got..

Well that's indeed strange but www.galileooptics.com and everything under it gave an error several days ago when I was searching for stuff so I thought it went under or something. It's up now sure enough, however this is an older model. Still if anyone wants to share any helpful info I'd appreciate ...

A little help/info needed with free old telescope I got..

Anyone know about telescopes and/or Stellarium? Was given a Galileo 90x800 reflector. Everything in box in great shape except no discs. Instruction manual leaves me still wondering about a few things. Can't find any info or website that exists for this online. I don't really want to register to an a...

Re: Audio Equalizer for Linux Mint 19.1

Ok, I'm not French myself, I had to translate the instructions, but the last part has you opening and editing a file. Unless you mean making a shortcut? When making one, command would be qpaeq, give it a name, and I gave it an icon that's in usr/share/icons/Mint-y/apps/96@2x/pulseaudio-equalizer.png.

Re: Audio Equalizer for Linux Mint 19.1

I followed the instructions in this thread in the French subforum for adding Pulseaudio Equalizer.
viewtopic.php?f=63&t=286853
I then added a shortcut and icon in the menu, then added it to the panel. Works great.

Re: Favicons Missing in Firefox Bookmarks

[Solved for me] I tried messing with this issue again tonight and what I ended up doing was deleting the contents of several folders (in the profile folder) including browser-extension-data, extensions, sessionstore-backups, and storage. I can't say what really helped, I don't know. But as a result ...

Some cool apps for guitarists you may not be aware of..

Thought I'd share a link to a site that started out as just one app for guitarists to control Zoom modeling products on Windows (that you'd have to use Wine with), and now has 3 apps with native Ubuntu support. They're very well made and for now at least free. There are some similar products out the...

Re: Hi all, 1 year into Linux

Hi scottyo! I've also been using Linux about a year (and a couple months). I found MInt to be pretty much perfect for me and find myself more connected with and able to learn and do more than I could with Windows. Welcome, and we may both have the same name too :lol:

Re: Cinnamon status bar questions

@wutsinterweb, add an applet called grouped window list to the panel if you're not already using it. Then you only have one item displayed per app open showing a number overlayed on it. Then if you hover over it, all instances are displayed in thumbnails to choose from. It makes things more organize...

Re: Linux Replacement for MusicBee?

You should look at Lollypop. Maybe it's similar to Musicbee? Maybe you've already seen it, it appears to be in both lists phd21 linked to I just noticed. https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Lollypop I just went back to using QMMP myself after giving Rhythmbox a good try for a few months. Seems Rhythmbox was...

First, I use Mint Cinn 19.1.

Re: Favicons Missing in Firefox Bookmarks

Yeah, I noticed 'checkmarks' is actually successful in grabbing all favicons when I run it, but 2/3 or 3/4 of them don't display in bookmarks. I suppose I could leave a comment to the dev on the extension page.

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

I could go on (and on) but short and sweet.. My current computer, a Dell Inspiron 3558 Laptop, came with Windows 10 on it. I used Win10 for a while (ugh) and put up with all the weirdness, but I guess about a year ago, the creator of Classic Shell (start menu replacement) decided he was stopping dev...
