Re: add script in Pix

I finally cropped and placed text in a photo in Gimp. Thanks for the link to save watermark.
Thought I would try Pinta. Got it installed. It looks pretty approachable, but after opening a photo and trying to crop, the program keeps closing. Just blinks out.

Re: add script in Pix

Cliff - that did not come up on my search, but I will check out Software Sources. Do you have a link for it.

Text tool in XNViewMP works well and I like the program but it has no clone tool or other way to remove spots.

Re: add script in Pix.

I am trying to figure out Gimp, Its not very intuitive.
I guess there is no easy way to pop in a line of script.

Will check out Fottox.

Thanks guys

Re: can't install Zoom Solved

Thanks. That was an easy fix. I just assumed I needed to download from internet. Should have know.
It took at least 15 minutes, I thought it was going to stall out on dependencies like the reviews said, but it finally finished.

Re: [SOLVED] Set file and folder emblems in Mint 14?

I have made my own icons which I used in Windows. Now I would like to use them in Mint 19.3, but there is no option to add new ones to the emblem page. I did find one explanation of how to do it using terminal, but it didn't work. Those command sequences seem to always have some little thing that do...

Re: How to change emblems in MATE 17 {SOLVED}

This fix does not work for me. Mint 19.
To find the emblems I have to do file > properties. The resulting page of emblems does not have an "add" option.
I have some icons I created and used in windows. Would like to use them in Mint.

Re: cant install Windows XP in virtualbox

Actually it looks like I should have updated 5.2 instead of removing it and trying to get 6.2 from scratch.

Re: cant install Windows XP in virtualbox

I previously used the same program from an old computer, installed and register.
Installed printer driver successfully.

Will try erasing VB and installing new version from Oracle.
I guess earlier advice from an old post about not downloading from internet does not apply here.
