Re: [Security issue] LM19: Desktop won't lock after suspend

Something I discovered around the misbehaving lockscreen phenomenon. I often will connect another computer to my desktop monitor --my firewall/router runs headless but at times I need a console -- to watch boot messages or what-not. So If I patch over the desktop monitor to the firewall machine befo...

Re: When did you come to Linux?

I began with Slackware. Downloaded from Compuserve of all places at 2400baud. Took a while. -- 30 some odd number of 3.5" diskettes. Had to use some image writer to get the boot/root installer pair set up. The install also took a while....This was back in 1993 or early 94. Kept a windows install on ...

Re: Can't start MATE

Try this: login to a plain shell by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 at the display manager, then enter your login details at the prompts and see if you get an error message. If you do see an error message and have a root account, login with the root account to have a look at the stuff in /var/log and or type d...

Disappearing window borders after main menu edit

Something I tried to do backfired. I removed a bunch of unused, inactive and uninstalled menu items on my mint 19.1 desktop. I took care not to remove useful items, but cut many duplicates and non-installed stuff. Eliminated about a dozen things. At the next login the desktop was messed-up -- no win...

Re: missing night time icons in Weather Report panel applet

[Update] So again I am on the trail of why icons are somewhat broken in my install of Mint 19 Mate weather panel applet. Turns out it only breaks and shows the gtk-missing-image file which in my case is a small red X in a light background at certain conditions. For the weather applet this only occur...

Re: Mint 17.3+Skype- no sound

I have seen this issue on my desktop machine install of mint 17.3, If you open the sound properties/preferences applet and see what sound device is the default. test the speakers and microphone. Do you use another device for skype, other than the native sound hardware of the laptop? perhaps a USB he...

Re: missing night time icons in Weather Report panel applet

Update: I could'nt resist your suggestion to try out the oxygen icons, they looked ok in the screenshot form synaptic, but didn't loke them as much as Tango2. Now guess what? The weather icon is broken again. Very bizarre that it should work at all, then stop working after installing another theme, ...

Re: missing night time icons in Weather Report panel applet

For now all seems to be working well, but it was strange that the night time icons were broken, whereas the day time icons loaded fine. As for what it looked like broken, it displayed a small icon with a red x in the centre. And a few of the menu app icons went away but they were easy enough to rese...

missing night time icons in Weather Report panel applet

Greetings, Installed Linux Mate 19 tara on my system and coming form being happy with and well tuned to mint 17.3, I hoped that all would be equal between the versions. And largely this is so, except for one curious anomaly so far. The weather report panel app does not correctly display the night ti...
