Re: Totally Mint..!!

I recently did the same and blew away my Win7 installation which, while it was set up as dual boot, I hadn't once logged into since I installed LM. It felt good on first reboot to not see Windows 7 in my Grub :) (I did image my Win7 set up to a spare drive for posterity's sake but I doubt I'll ever ...

Re: Repairing GRUB.

I'm certainly no expert so wait for someone smarter than me to confirm but wouldn't BootRepair from the LiveCD do what you want? Have your Linux install and cloned Win10 disk both connected at the same time as you boot the LiveCD and have BootRepair rebuild GRUB - it should detect the Win install an...

Re: Flat 'Modern' GUI design and where it comes from (and reflections of Clems March 2019 blog post in relation to that)

... For myself it is that loss of clear functionality that is the 'curse' of the flat design. ... The big issue with what Windows 8 introduced was the streamlining, removal of features and depth Flat design itself doesn't cause a loss of functionality or features. The key, as always, is making sure...

Lo this many years later and I've yet to hear of a single report of technology users clambering for a flat UI.

On anything.

Period.
I like flat UI themes. :)

Support for Keyboard scroll wheel?

Hi all, I have a Microsoft Wireless Elite keyboard ( https://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Wireless-Optical-Desktop-Elite/dp/B0000AOWWY which has a hardware scroll wheel built in. The keyboard works as expected (including media keys etc) except for the scroll wheel. Does anyone know where I should start ...

Re: Newblood checking in :)

I grew up in Adelaide, then moved to Darwin. 26 years later we managed to "escape" and return to our roots. Thinking Gawler was a nice near country town we moved there. Yeah! Right! Ended up moving about 60km further north to Riverton. Eldest son accused us of sneaking back to Darwin a few km at a ...

Re: "Best" file manager

I'd love a file manager that allows "the", "a", etc to be ignored from the beginning of files/folders when sorting (on a per folder basis). Eg, finding/sorting TV Shows/Movies is a pain when there's 20+ files all beginning with "The"... This is easy peasy in Directory Opus (windoze only) which is, h...

Re: Newblood checking in :)

After a few weeks with Mint you'll be rethinking that username. SO far I have found nothing in Mint to make me mad! Hahaha! I certainly hope so! My Win7 setup has been, by and large, pretty reliable with only a few niggles here and there but I like tinkering with new toys and really like the idea o...

Newblood checking in :)

Hi all, jumped in feet first last weekend after I heard MS were discontinuing support for Win7. Have been interested in Linux for years and tried it way back when Mandrake, RedHat, and Suse were the main distros but I found it too hard back then. Installed Mint 19.1 on the weekend and it's been so e...

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

First time Linux user and first post here :) After thinking about switching to Linux for years (and a prior failed attempt where it was "just all too hard"), I finally decided to give Linux another shot this weekend. What made me install Linux? A combination of things: MS announcement that support f...
