Re: Seeing hard drive contents

I am sorry but I can well see why Linux has a reputation for being difficult, although it is far easier now than it once was. It does not help that things that are easy in windows seem impossible in Linux Mint. It seems from the last answer that for some reason I can't fathom the creators of Linux ...

Re: Forum User Levels

Thanks. I also give $20 a month, although I missed last month due to cash flow problems. I have put Mint on 20 or more other peoples PCs (some I built) and every one of them has been so much happier than Win 7 or 10. I give them free phone support and offer to put Win back on for free. No one ever ...

You are correct the install "cd" is a DVD I have a bad habit of calling both CD's even though I know which is which.

OK I am going to install LinuxMint for the third time and use a single character password.

Re: Strange to me incident regarding admin password

Simplify as I said. And use only lower case (check the Caps Lock status). That should decrease the chance of keyboard layout errors. No risk: there's absolutely no need to make your admin password as complicated as online passwords. :) I've got one letter for my password. I fear no one physically a...

Re: MInt and AMD: The desktop freezes almost within 15 seconds

The desktop freezes almost within 15 seconds after boot up in the latest Kernel 5.0. The mouse cursor can be moved around but can't click into anywhere. Kernel 5.0 is NOT the latest kernel and is not supported here anyway. Upstream stable is on 5.1.5 but is still not supported here, consider it exp...

Re: Mint 18.3 updates

I first had problems accessing these forums last night, American Central Time, at about two in the morning. Now I can...

Re: Need to change ?Divider Bar? in Nemo

Thanks, roblm . That is exactly what I was looking for and it worked great. Now if I could do the same with Mint-Y themes, it would be even better. But, they don't have a gtk-main.css file. I searched all through the gtk.css file, the only one available, and couldn't find anything that looked like i...

Re: Bug? Open too many windows and

If you want that many windows open simultaneously I'd suggest using multiple workspaces, they prettty effectively solve panel clutter. Also, you don't mention how much RAM you have there, but having that many open windows is a very good way to find out that it may not be enough. I have 8GB of memor...

I suppose versions which are close all except current focused would be useful for some people as well....I feel a little project is coming on to make it a single multipurpose script - :)

Yes, that would be great. :D

Begs a silly question. WHY would you want to have so many programs open anyway? I think the worst I have ever had was 7 when programming.
No reason, in particular, just checking stuff.

Re: Modern Panel + Is there a close all option?

I've added a couple of scripts to my system which I've set up to access as nemo actions (via right-click on the desktop) to 1) Close all windows in current workspace and 2) Close all windows in all workspaces. But you could also assign them to keyboard shortcuts, or make menu or panel launchers for...

Bug? Open too many windows and

the icons for those windows stretch over the top of the part of the panel that holds the clock. I forget the name of that part of the panel but, the icons actually push the clock out of frame. I thought maybe it was just the non-official theme I was using so I switched to a standard theme and tried ...

gm10, it seems to be working now. The new entry seems to be identical except for no Final Releases wording.

Here are both of them. I'm fixing to deleted the unselected one, as it won't stay selected anyway.
