Re: ubuntu and fedora = no hulu ?

ok I have been installing every other "ubuntu and fedora" linux os and found that some won't let Firefox run hulu and the only one that i have tried that works is Mint. My question is why in the world would the other not work? Thought Mint is based off Ubuntu... Mint has the option, which I think m...

Re: Need a lighter-weight browser with adblock

Well, well, based on YOUR recommendation, I loaded and tested it and THEN also made MY recommendation. At least that's how I understood it. I think, I switch to exclusively sarcastic posts only... I see, even though you previously stated this: Hi CtrlAltDel. I used Epiphany for a few hours this aft...

Yes, me.
What about the Epiphany browser? That may be a good suggestion to make.

I still like IceCat. It's a slimmed down Firefox ESR with a very restrictive handling of JavaScript. It's 6 months old now, probably the developer is starved.

I wonder if anyone has suggested Falkon or IceCat for the OP to try out?

Re: Need a lighter-weight browser with adblock

Hi CtrlAltDel. I used Epiphany for a few hours this afternoon, entered my password for the Mint Forums, posted posts here and uploaded pictures. Epiphany - or "Web" - is fast, economical, the image and font rendering is perhaps even better than in Firefox. Again, great suggestion. Hopefully the ori...

Epiphany runs well and needs little memory. However, I immediately renamed it from Web, as it appears in the Menu, back to Epiphany.

Great suggestion, absque fenestris. What made you think of the Ephiphany broswer?

Re: Need a lighter-weight browser with adblock

I need a suitably lightweight browser with adblock enabled. I've tried Firefox, Chromium and Midori already and none of them fit the bill. You could try the Epiphany browser that is in Software Manager. It is very lightweight and has an option in settings to disable ads and supports bookmarks. It's...

[SOLVED] Is all this Mate software normal in Cinnamon?

Is it safe to remove Mate-desktop, etc... software that is installed in Mint Cinnamon 19.3? It's not hurting anything or causing any issues but, I was just curious if it should be there or if it got installed by some type of mistake that I made or included with some piece of software. mate-dekstop.j...

Re: Can't update applets

you don't have any info on the applets missing after updates. they may now be corrupt or not compatible after updates. you may need to reconfigure your panel, i also had to do this but my issue was not ssl related. if you compiled or installed something ssl that may be your issue. have you removed ...

Re: Can't update applets

we all have unique issues that affect some and not others. the solution posted above should work. no one will hand you an answer on a silver platter, because maybe no one has your issue or not tried any applets.

As I somewhat suspected, nothing useful for your situation there. There are a couple of solutions in the thread RIH posted. Hopefully one of those will work for you. Thanks again, Mr. Een.

Re: Can't update applets

Hi CtrlAltDel. I don't use Cinnamon, and Xfce doesn't have Applets, so I can't help with your issue, but wanted you to know your posts aren't invisible to others! The only thing I can recommend, and it might not have anything to do with Applets, is paste the output of apt update to see if there's a...

[Solved with reinstall of Mint] Can't update applets

I am having an issue updating applets. This issue predated the update to 19.3 because, while trying to refresh and update applets before the update, as Clem suggested we all do, it was not possible to do. It still isn't possible and I was hoping someone could tell me if this was a problem on my side...

Re: Gnote not usable for me.

I remember back when Apple rolled out a Post-It style note desktop accessory, which iirc did find its way into Mac OS X. Anyhow, it was a nice idea and I know people who used it extensively.

Gnote not usable for me.

It seems like a logical replacement for Tomboy Notes. I realize it is more modern than Tomboy Notes and has advantages but, it has no tray icon in the panel. Many people like to leave their note taking app open all the time and click on the tray icon, which pops up and allows you to choose specifica...
