Re: Timeshift and the Settings

Hi,

I have a problem with Timeshift: it doesn't exclude the directories I have selected to be excluded in the settings. Below is an image of the filters, what am I doing wrong?

Thank you.

Re: How do I make so that Thunar always starts at fixed coordinates on the desktop?

Whatever option you choose, add it to ~/.local/share/applications/Thunar.desktop There is no Thunar.desktop at that place. :) I'm back to this because I got another answer about that in another thread I started . There was an easier way, easier than the one I've been using so far: 1) create a scrip...

Re: How do I combine two commands in one launcher?

But you can combine the two commands by putting them in a two-line script in your $HOME/bin directory: thunar "/home/username/Applications/Unity Technologies/" & sh -c "xdotool search --name 'unity technologies - gestionnaire de fichiers' windowmove 5 5 windowsize 640 360" &...

Re: Looking for a reliable and regularly updated, light web browser

My prediction is you will see no significant difference in the long run. The RAM usage I reported was with NoScript set on severe JS limitations, although the sites I opened were partially "Trusted", so JS was allowed for the main site. I never allow JS on googlesyndication, googletagmana...

Re: Looking for a reliable and regularly updated, light web browser

The biggest difference I can find is to run NoScript or equivalent. Firefox is trim and light when Web sites are not using Javascript to download massive files of advertising junkware. I can run Firefox all day with multiple tabs in less than 200 MB. Thanks for the advice! :) I just added NoScript ...

Re: Timeshift and the Settings

I also set Timeshift to run daily and I keep seven snapshots, plus the first one I did after installation (on demand). They are all stored on a separate partition set on an also separate drive, just in case. You might think "it's using both a belt and suspenders but, well, I sometimes had to go...

Re: Looking for a reliable and regularly updated, light web browser

So, I took a closer look at how Firefox works. From my observations, I gather that: the result of setting the number of subprocesses the task manager will show for Firefox to 1 (instead of 8 ) somehow works. The task manager shows up to 3 sub-processes but one is used by uBlock Origin and another on...

Re: Looking for a reliable and regularly updated, light web browser

All right, I give up about Pale Moon; it's mostly good but some web-sites do not work properly, load slowly and there are customizations that are missing that make the use of this web browser uncomfortable for me. Oh well, at least I've tried. :)

Thanks everyone for your help! :)

Re: Looking for a reliable and regularly updated, light web browser

Thank you very much for your advice guys! :)

I tried Midori and it doesn't work very well; customization is lousy at best. I could try Pale Moon but I cannot find it in the store; I guess it's not to be used with Xfce? I'm trying to find it on the web.

[Abandoned, for now] Looking for a reliable and regularly updated, light web browser

I'm using Firefox but it takes more and more ram, currently up to 1.2 GB, so I'd like to switch to a light web browser, or at least one that uses a lot less ram, up to 500/600 MB would suit me, knowing that I need to keep four or five tabs constantly open. I searched the web and it appears that Ligh...

You can use Timeshift to backup your entire Home. It's true that it doesn't backup data that are on other drives but you don't need those to upgrade do you? :)

RTFM means, in terms fit for polite company: Read The Fine* Manual.
