Re: Disappearing Clock

I have this bug too on Mint 18.2 Xfce 64bit. The fix is to make your change twice... i.e. from the OP change the clock format to 12 hour and close (clock disappears :roll: ), then open panel settings, select properties for the clock, change to 12 hour format again and this time it should stick :D

Re: Google not signing Chrome with a public key?

The solution here https://askubuntu.com/questions/943146/apt-update-error-an-error-occurred-during-the-signature-verification-chrome worked for me. Looks like it's a cock up by Google on changing their public key.

Re: Channel 4 Player

Not much help in solving it, but I have the same problem in Chrome (I've uninstalled Flash for Firefox etc). My workaround is to use my PS3 or Android devices.

Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

Linux Mint 17.2 cinnamon suited both my needs and the desktop does not get in my way. It works for me professionally and in a recreational sense. I do have one thing against it, though this might be a bit stupid, i mean why let feelings get in the way of a otherwise perfect distro. But, Linux Mint ...

Re: Keeping LibreOffice up-to-date on Betsy

The inability to keep libreoffice updated to its bleeding edge version is probably the most annoying limitation of LMDE. I have LMDE2 in my main computer, and LM17.2 in several laptops. In the main, I'm forced to stay with LO 4.3, in the laptops I have LO 5 (thanks to the PPAs). LO is by far the mo...

Re: LMDE systray border (for BlueBerry icon etc)

Some icons have an option to show a border. You could try checking the options for those icons to see if the option is present and enabled. Neither BlueBerry nor Variety have this option. They both have the option to remove the icon from the systray, but that reduces their functionality. When runni...

Bug - LMDE systray border (for BlueBerry icon etc)

Recently switched to LMDE 2 from the main edition and very happy. But there's one bug in the Cinnamon panel that I can't find a fix for. The icon for BlueBerry (and Variety* too) has a black border around it that is inconsistent with the rest of the panel theme. Border.jpg What's even stranger is th...

Re: synapse for xfce?

For some reason catfish is not installed in Mint 15 Xfce (I'm guessing you're using this edition), but it's easy to install.

Yes, it removes mint-meta-xfce for me too, but this causes no problems. I much prefer pavucontrol - thank you again :)

Re: Why does sound-setting indicator behave...?

So here is what I did: I removed xfce4-mixer. I installed pavucontrol. Now here is where the fun begins. The indicator-sound applet does not open pavucontrol when you press [Sound Settings]. I created a symlink so that when it tries to open xfce4-mixer, pavucontrol opens instead. sudo ln -s /usr/bi...

Thank you. Having looked at this page, it may not be straightforward to include the graphics driver, but I will do more research over there.
