Re: Are launchers dying?

If using Xfce you can use Alt+F2 to see an Application Finder dialogue box; type browser in the box and hit the Down arrow and it will display a list of apps from which you can click the one you want.

Is this more like the OP's requirement?

Re: Are launchers dying?

Actually my 'launchers' are auto hide vertical panels I always add and then put some app launchers in. Really simple, reliable, does the same thing, who the hell needs dockys? Same here! I have a vertical autohidden panel on the left side of my screen with over 20 launchers in it of my most used ap...

Re: [SOLVED] Install LMDE 4 beta as Vbox guest?

I am a bit suspicious that you will not have resources in the VM that are sufficient to run LMDE4 beta as a VM particularly if you want the cinnamon desktop, which for me running LMDE3 was the case. I manually installed Xfce and removed as much as I could of the cinnamon DE and suddenly the system r...

Re: Audacity in XFCE 19.3

What happens if you use the simple command vlc or for the cli version command cvlc ? I am wondering if the env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 audacity %F is needed; perhaps the simple commands work fine without that.

Re: GIMP 2.10.18 toolbox appearance

You should be able to grasp the edge of the toolbox next to the image window and simply drag it to the left to narrow the toolbox or right to widen it.
I am assuming this still occurs in 2.10.18 as it does in earlier versions.

Re: nvida and virtual box

Your problem is most likely the result of Virtualbox using a virtual graphics system, not your nvidia card, but never having had an nvidia card I may be wrong about that. Unless Cinnamon DE is important to you it's likely that you will have much better results using another DE version of Mint such a...

Re: Is it better to set root password or not?

Doesn't Mint have Recovery mode (from the grub menu) to allow access into the user's filesystem just like Ubuntu? Yes. But if you eff around enough rebooting just to log in as root becomes tedious quite fast I can assure you. Which is of course indeed offset if you never want to in the first place,...

Re: Is it better to set root password or not?

... but for what it's worth, with "better" in the sense of "more convenient" I feel it better to set one. Specifically it unlocks the capability to log in as root on a virtual console (Ctrl-Alt-F1/F6) for example to fix something in your user setup that causes said user to no longer have root acces...

So you are using the OS nouveau driver.
Have a look in the Additional drivers utility to see what is recommended by nvidia for that card; it might be all that's needed.

Re: How do you remember bits of sudo code?

Like a lot other posters I also have a cheat sheet of useful commands, but more useful than that is to use many aliases where typing a single word or phrase can be a shortcut for a long complicated command. As I said in a recent post my .bash_aliases file contains 40 or 50 aliases which saves me a l...

I may have missed it in your spec but what graphics driver do you use, and do you use the radeon or nvidia graphics?
Graphics driver is this one: Device-1: NVIDIA GK106 [GeForce GTX 660]
That is the card, not the driver; show us the output of lspci -k, which will show drivers.

Re: I want to be a linux guru in months

For long and complicated commands look into aliases; I have about 40 or 50 in my .bash_aliases file which make life a lot easier.

This could be linked to the fairly recent problem that arose with "streamlink" which used to work for live streaming of all BBC TV channels and all of ITV's as well. Then suddenly BBC stopped working completely for any of its channels, and ITV stopped for ITV1, though the other numbered ITV channels...
