Re: LMDE 4

After doing that, I went back to the 'main' installer and clicked 'refresh' and the installer detected my drive with a single XFS and I right clicked on the XFS partition, and set it as root. That's because the default is to format as ext4, unless you select otherwise. To do so, rather then just se...

Re: Need advice on Mint

64-bit indeed, and I'd try LM 19.2 Xfce (supported until April 2023) or LM 18.3 Xfce (supported until April 2021) on that hardware.

Re: From LMDE3 to LMDE4 beta?

Will all these upgrades noticeably degrade performance compared with a clean LMDE4 install? And who could conclusively say, for noticabilty with your particular hardware, in that 1-2-3-4 disposition, other than you? Better idea: Do the upgrade (when available), and then do a fresh install along sid...

As there is nothing returned, that change has completed without error. With that in mind, does your copy & paste now work as you had intended?

Setup a Gravatar for it, or use some likewise remote hosting of the file.

Re: just open the bloody text file

I understand the only way to save that file with extension is to type .txt behind the filename. I think I always type file extensions, but just by habit. But I do agree that could be an opportunity for improvement. I suppose I'd be challenged to state what the default should be, as sometimes a user...

Re: just open the bloody text file

Nope thats default, actually i hate it when there is no extension shown. I suspect that your text files' extensions aren't shown because they actually don't have any. I just tested in Xed (default text editor for Cinnamon), and while you can save a file with an extension, it does not prompt you to ...

So how can i search for them text files? Speaking for my text files, they all have a literal .txt file ext...

Maybe if it is possible to make a search and find ALL txt files. Then select them all together and change the allowance in 1 time... In W10 you can do a search on extension. No idea how that would work in LM I'm using LM 19.3 Cinnamon. In Nemo (the default file manager), I can search (via the magni...

All the text files were original made in Mint. Then bu and replaced after clean install Mint again. And now this happens... I am unaware of a way to create text files as executable by default, so I suspect something changed their permissions subsequent to then and to what you're experiencing today....

Then that's indeed why you're getting the popup. Your text files are marked as executable. I would not be able to say why. Were you doing anything with chmod or similar?
