Wine won't antialias fonts when Cinnamon is set to Grayscale antialiasing

Dear all, I am experiencing a problem: I am using Linux Mint 19.1 CInnamon in conjunction with wine 4.0 stable (and also tested with wine staging 4.9). Wine works fine as long as I keep the default Cinnamon antialiasing setting to RGB. However, if I switch to grayscale in Cinnamon, wine will produce...

Re: New MIME registration from UI file properties

I understand. I am super happy with it, I will hold on to it forever, unless a more "official" alternative ever pops up. I love it so much that, should it ever become incompatible with new linux releases, I would give up upgrading rather than losing this tool

Plus it would only reach LM 20.
What exactly do you mean by that? Will this not be usable for very long?

Re: USB Audio Interface JACK Xruns on Linux but not on Windows

Hello, thank you for your reply and sorry for my late reply :wink: to answer your questions, what I do for testing this behaviour is first play a .wav file with VLC and I get xruns. Then I close VLC and any other playback that I am aware of (including web browser), open reaper or audacity and I star...

Re: New MIME registration from UI file properties

I am happy to announce that the package works like charm. I think I speak for all engineers that are stuck with ill-supported, 20-years-old software to do their daily work, when I say that your help is most appreciated. Thank you very much. Special thanks to the original author of this wonderful too...

Re: New MIME registration from UI file properties

I "do" Python is a gross overstatement :lol: I just plot some arrays occasionally. Sorry for the late reply. Thank you again for your huge help. Unfortunately I am away for work at the moment and I don't have access to my linux machine. I will try it on Friday as soon as I come back to the office. G...

Re: New MIME registration from UI file properties

Wow, thank you so much! I was able to install the .deb package but when running the app (from the search bar) the window just flashes, I think I can read "scanning... please wait" and then closes with no further notice. I am running linux mint 19.1 cinnamon 4.0.10 and kernel 4.15.0-48-lowlatency. An...

Re: New MIME registration from UI file properties

Thank you very much for your suggestion. An utility like the one you suggested would be fantastic, however getting it to work it requires way more tinkering that I am able to perform, and I think a lot of people might be on my same level of incompetence. Would you be so kind to guide me through the ...

Re: New Features For Nemo Requested

2) yes I know, a lot of engineering software like modelsim, vivado, and some windows software (through wine) is obsolete or not particularly well supported on linux and doesn't register mime types. For instance .mpf .xpr .asc respectively are all seen as text files and changing the default applicati...

New MIME registration from UI file properties

Hello Everyone, I have been using linux mint for about a year now and I am very happy with it. I would like to thank all the developers for the great work they are doing. I am an electronics engineer and I run my own company entirely on linux mint. One feature that I really miss is a simple way to r...

Re: New Features For Nemo Requested

Glad to see this post. I would really like if the context menu would have the following two options: 1) as OP said, windows-like "create shortcut" as in "create launcher" of any item in the form of a .desktop file rather than a symbolic link 2) have an option, at least in file properties, to registe...
