Add the line margin-top: XXXpx; to this section, where XXX is the pixel value:

Code: Select all

margin-from-right-edge-of-screen: 870px;
margin-top: 740px;
That works in 18.2 and 18.3, as well.

Re: Partitions SSD64 + 1TB hdd with docs from Win7

There is an anomaly that I noted when looking at the /data partition prior to moving it: GParted indicated there was roughly 12GB used in that partition, and yet I've never written anything to it ... I believe you are referring to sda2 - and that would not be a "data" partition in linux terminology...

When you install the program to that location - /home/alfredo/miniconda3 - you will not need admin privileges to use it.

Re: Linux Mint Fatal Error

That is to be expected. You have to do some fancy linux tricks to install Grub from the live Mint. Open a terminal and enter all these commands: Mount the root partition at /mnt: sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done sudo chroot /mnt The p...

Re: Linux Mint Fatal Error

Mint is installed on /dev/sdb
Try installing Grub to /dev/sdb and then set that hard drive to be the first in the boot order.

Re: Installed Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon but cannot boot Windows 8.1 anymore

Where do I verify in which mode Windows was installed ? AND Where do I make sure - during installation - that Linux is being installed in such and such mode ? I'm asking this because I suspect that is what might have caused this problem. No - installing in the wrong mode was not the problem. The fa...

Re: Cinnamon vs Mate

I consider the Cinnamon file manager (Nemo) to be much better than the Mate file manager (Caja). That is one of the deciding factors for me. Would appreciate if you could expound on this. Concerning the appearance, I like the more compact toolbar arrangement in Nemo - where you can add and delete t...
