However it does not explain why Klipper quit placeing what I highlight into the clipboard as it did in Mint16KDE and I believe it did when I first installed Mint 17KDE. Now that I have instal...

no copy when highlighting text

In Mint 16KDE and older versions I could highlight text and it would be coppied then I could use the middle button (wheel button) to paste the text. I can no longer do this in Mint 17KDE. Any ideas?

Re: Knotes will not migrate

Nevermind about Knotes. I have decided to switch to Tomboy seems much less proprietary meaning you don't need Tomboy to read the notes as you do in Knotes.

Re: gpe-calendar

Thanks Buzzsaw, for your help. I guess I will just have to try and find another non-cloud based calendar that will allow note reminders on the date like a desktop calendar.

Re: widget and LibreOffice problems fixed w/reinstall

I was researching the problem online and tried some of the suggestions between our post so that is probably how the dates got changed. I gave up and reinstalled LM16KDE and now it all seems to work. Thanks for your help I guess I'll never know the original cause.

Thanks for your reply.
I didn't remove any intentionally. However my research makes me think some are missing. I din't even have any updates or added software that day that could replace or remove something.

I don't know much about it either but I don't see a reason why it was added automatically instead of as an option. I am trying to find a way to disable it instead of just trying to remove it. I have quit it but it always restarts when I boot up and it is not listed in the startup programs via the sy...
