Re: Nemo's file order

I don't think that's possible. I'm seeing it as:

Code: Select all

(four).txt
one.txt
three.txt
(two).txt
no matter what arrangement I choose (by name, type, size, detailed type...)
Your ordering one-(four)-three-(two) comes from "by modification date".

Re: ? re easist upgrade 17.1 to 19.2 or 20/64 bit

I've been on 20 since it came out in June and it's perfect. Zero issues. DO NOT use 17.1, it's not supported anymore, so it's not safe. Point upgrades (like from 19.2 to 19.3) are pretty easy, but base upgrades (from 19.3 to 20 for example) are harder, clean install is probably better in that case. ...

Re: Alienware Aurora R9 - failing install

I'm guessing it's the graphics card/drivers. Take a look at "Solving freezes" section here:

You can try the compatibility mode, or try the nomodeset tricks.

Re: Adjust storage usage of Linux Mint on external SSD

It depends on how you set up the Virtualbox disk. When you were installing, if you chose "Dynamically allocated" then you don't have control over that size. If Win10 is telling you 500MB then I'm guessing the rest of the drive was formatted in a way Win10 does not recognize. You can format...

Re: (possible bug) renaming files in Mint

This is not a bug at all. Nemo is giving you the option to do one of two things: You could either leave the extension unchanged and directly type another name without clicking, and not having to retype the extension, OR You can double click to select the entire name, then start typing something in o...
