Re: Nemo's file order

I think the sorting order used in Nemo is based on your locale; different locales have different sorting conventions. For strict ASCII sorting you can add export LC_COLLATE=C to your ~/.profile file. To activate it you'll need to log off and back on again.

Re: Where does "sudo apt install rclone" pull software from?

You could always do a: rclone version --check to see which version you're actually running and to see what the latest available version is.

See here for more info.

Re: I am totally baffled by the CROP tool in the Drawing app

I've recently discovered Photopea which is an online clone of Photoshop. It's not a 100% copy of Photoshop, but it's pretty close. I use Photoshop at work and since the Coronavirus I've had to do some work from home, using Photoshop remotely is a bit of a fiddle sometimes and so I've switched to usi...

+1 for Handbrake. Get it from their website rather than the Software Manager so you get the latest version.

Re: Firefox loses 250 employees - will development quality go down?

Speaking of alternatives - what do people make of Vivaldi? I switched to Vivaldi several months ago and I really like it. It was made by one of the guys that used to run Opera, back when Opera had heaps of features that people loved and before it was sold to the Chinese. It regularly receives updat...

I use Dolphin for GameCube emulation, I've actually never played a Wii game on it. The controller I use is Logitech F710.
Ah ok. Many of the Wii games that I'd like to play on Dolphin use the motion controls, so I was wondering how Dolphin handled that.

Re: Gaming on Linux Mint 20

Something else I'd like to bring up is emulation. ePSXe, PCSX2, and Dolphin are the three emulators I play the most and they all run 100% speed and with no problems. I've been following RPCS3 for some time now, and they're making progress every day. The only system I struggle to emulate is the Nint...

Re: Why does upgrade to Mint 20 require PPA removal?

The reason for removing PPAs and third party repos prior to upgrade is to minimize the potential for dependency conflicts during the upgrade process along with the stress of trying to fix them part-way through the upgrade. E.g. as a simple example If you have the bionic version of package A from a ...

Re: How do you guys "safely" download large files?

I regularly download movies that are between 1 and 2GB. I just use my browser and very rarely have any problems. On the odd occasion that a download has stopped I just click the resume button and it continues downloading from where it was up to. Never had a need for a download manager.

KeePass is what I use for Linux and Keepass2Android for Android.

Both open that same file that I save in Dropbox.
This is my setup too and it works like a dream!

Re: To serve or not to serve :-)

Re email, I use POP instead of LDAP because LDAP leaves all the mail on the server, where you are locked into the email host. POP downloads everything to your computer where you can manage it and back it up. Instead of LDAP did you perhaps mean to say IMAP ? Using IMAP you can indeed leave your ema...

Re: The Coronavirus!

Australia and New Zealand are two interesting cases because they are majorly of western culture and yet are doing very well, in line with their Asian neighbors. The economies of both countries are very tightly tied to China and other Asian countries. My guess is that there are two main causes for t...

Re: Experience with Ulyana: upgrade, DON'T clean install

If you keep /home on a separate partition, you CAN do a clean install without losing most all of your previous configurations, themes, customizations, etc. Just use the "something else" or "manual" option in the installer, and be sure to not format /home on the install. And use the same username wh...
