Re: A Different Set of Installation Instructions

Note that you can install two Google-made free fonts as replacements for Microsoft's Calibri and Cambria. And you can configure Libre Office to use them as such: https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/libre-office.html#ID6 (item 6) Perhaps a link in your notes? :P I'm assuming the notes are yo...

Re: A Different Set of Installation Instructions

Not so. Deprecated by Ubuntu just means that they removed the support from their installer because they did not want to deal with certain issues. Certainly not deprecated by Mint, however, where support for home folder encryption has been specifically added back into the installer again. I know bec...

That's the first time I've seen that. I'd suspected, but never seen it. Thanks for the follow up.

Re: A Different Set of Installation Instructions

To actually answer your question CommonJoe, a good place to post a guide like this would be in the Tutorials subforum . There isn't really a place to "announce" it, but you could announce it with a new reply to this thread. Another place to post guides is the tutorial section of the community site ...

Re: A Different Set of Installation Instructions

I hadn't planned to engage in debate. My actual goal was to find a good place for this unusual thing. Nevertheless, I'll tread lightly because there are worthwhile things being said here. On the other hand I see no advantage in installing clamAV and chkrootkit. I've never heard of any Linux user who...

Re: A Different Set of Installation Instructions

It's always useful to have such a list if you have a complex setup. I used to have such a list when I was running that " other " OS. The kicker is that this checklist is a "typical" setup. I'm not doing anything extraordinary by the pros on here. Far from it. But the checklist covers a lot of stuff...

[SOLVED] A Different Set of Installation Instructions

Hi, I've kept personal installation notes since starting to use Linux Mint on my main laptop a couple of years ago. They've evolved into a kind of check list for me since I experiment with operating system installations. At some point, I realized they would be good for others too. I know about the i...

Re: New Windows Borders for Public Domain, Questions at end

Also maybe one more generic version that derives the color from the active gtk theme? E.g. Metabox uses the gtk theme selected background color..... https://github.com/smurphos/Window_Borders_Mint_19/blob/master/files/Metabox/metacity-1/metacity-theme-3.xml That's a pretty good idea. Noted. (And th...

Re: New Windows Borders for Public Domain, Questions at end

The window title seems to be set a little off-centre vertically in the titlebar. I noticed that too. I'll work on when I have a few minutes. The rounded corners look a bit odd for maximised apps. Hmm... yeah. I've never seen that either. I'll have to consider adjusting that, although I'm kind of en...

Re: New Windows Borders for Public Domain, Questions at end

And they're released. https://www.pling.com/p/1319251/ Just to add - your window - borders look good :) Smurphos, you helped me a lot. Thank you, very, very much. I'd use them if you ever get to publish such clear and legible controls. Replying so you get notified of the release. If you didn't alrea...

Re: New Windows Borders for Public Domain, Questions at end

The Cinnamox themes are also available on Cinnamon-Spices which is integrated into the Themes settings module via the Add/Remove tab so they are kind-of already built in to the release. Doh! Well, I feel like a bit of an idiot. But then again, I don't call myself Common Joe for nothing. I do a lot ...

Re: New Windows Borders for Public Domain, Questions at end

I think this is a big problem with Linux Mint and Cinnamon. I downloaded some of the more popular themes and none of the window borders work in Cinnamon. In fact, they don't even work in controls or desktop either. Which themes? You need to bear in mind that a lot of the stuff on gnome-look is effe...

Re: New Windows Borders for Public Domain, Questions at end

As if theming couldn't get more complicated, it looks like opendesktop.org, gnome-look.org, and box-look.org became (merged into?) pling.com.

Hi. Me Again. @gm10, I'll go talk to the guys at gnome-look.org, but I purposely posted here first because I think this is a big problem with Linux Mint and Cinnamon.

New Windows Borders for Public Domain, Questions at end

Hi, First of all, I really love Linux Mint. I've been using it on my main machine for almost two years. I'm a complete newb on the forum, though. I'm running 18.3 on my main computer, but I've been tinkering with 19.2 in a virtual machine to prepare to upgrade my main computer. I've been taking note...
