Re: No libreoffice launch screen

That did not work, BUT I found a facepalm method that did:

Right click on Menu
Select Edit Menu
Click on Office
Select the Item(s) you want to show, or uncheck the ones you don't.

I Use Mate so that may make a difference.

Re: No libreoffice launch screen

Typing "libreoffice" in the terminal, does do what I want.
How would I put that in my menu with a proper icon?

Would it be less effort to just upgrade to the current version of Libreoffice?

No libreoffice launch screen <SOLVED>

Is it possible to have a single icon to launch Libreoffice where the screen shows all your recent documents and on the left column the actual buttons to launch the apps on their own?

Mint 19.3 wants to update kernel series not installed

This is odd. My update manager shows a kernel update for 4.15
I do not have any of the 4.15 series installed according to kernel list.
I am running the 5.4 series.

To me this seems like a minor issue, but I am curious as to why this is happening.
Using Mint 19.3

Re: Brother MFC-J630W Prints but not scan Network

UPDATE:
OK for some reason, this worked. I wonder what is different., from manually installing.
Other users looking for help:

Thank you. That worked. Anyone else looking here, be sure to close the program, like Libreoffice, after doing this if it is open.

Re: Keyboard fails after login(SOLVED?)

I was going through this and saw this. I no longer have the issue. The only thing changed was the Kernel and the update to Mint 18.2

Any one else that has this It stopped after kernel 4.13. I had forgotten all about this issue.
