Re: Maximize Terminal from Thunar?

This should work. In Thunar, click on Edit > Configure custom actions ... Select Open in Terminal then click on the pencil icon to edit the command to the same as what you do otherwise. Copy the existing command before changing it so you can easily revert if it doesn't work. Oh, cool. I didn't even...

Re: Disable keyring permanently? [Mostly solved]

For Opera, try: opera-developer --password-store=basic Hi again sleeper12... We have to stop meeting like this! :lol: But anyway, that worked. Sort of, I couldn't get opera-developer to run, but this did opera --password-store=basic That works. It never occurred to try the same thing that worked wi...

Maximize Terminal from Thunar? [SOLVED]

Hi, all. Just one question for the 'nice to have' category... The thing is, when I open the terminal, I prefer to have it maximized. Easy enough to set launchers and menu items to do that. Easy-peasy! But does anyone know if you can set Thunar to maximize the terminal if you open the terminal from T...

Re: Disable keyring permanently? [mostly solved]

Hi! I'm running Mint 20 Xfce on a laptop. Thing is I want to completely disable keyring. I thought I had it turned off through that seahorse (passwords and keys) application. But it still occurs sometimes when I run VIvaldi. Is there some way to completely disable or remove keyring? It's quite anno...

Re: Disable keyring permanently? [NOT solved]

I know it's annoying, I used to get it on Chromium.

Re: Disable keyring permanently? [unsolved]

Everything there say it only works if you disable automatic log on. Which I don't want. First of all I should point out I've got five browsers installed: Firefox, Chromium, Falkon, Opera and Vivaldi. Vivaldi is my favoured browser. Falkon I just use if I want to keep RAM use to a minimum and I'm usi...

Re: Disable keyring permanently? [unsolved]

NOPE! Did not work at all. :x

I noticed too that it's meant for when you automatically log on. But mine is set to require my password to log on.

Re: Hi new guy here, new to Linux

Hi my name is Ron. I am from Canada, little hick town called McGregor Ontario. I am trying Linux for the first time. I hear others talk about it, so I figured I have a older computer doing nothing but collecting dust, so I figured I install Linux Mint as the O/S. I own a couple of Internet forums, ...

Re: Cannot connect laptop to Wifi

Hello again, sleeper12 : How about: sudo systemctl restart network-manager.service That worked! Hooray! :mrgreen: It's working fine now. It stayed on working properly after rebooting as well. Do you think that might have been a problem with that laptop in particular? Thanks so much for that!

I don't see an obvious problem, but try:

Code: Select all

 sudo ifconfig wlp3s0 up 
It didn't do anything.

Is there a chance that it could be the wireless network in particular?

Re: What are the first things you do when you boot up?

A new habit I've gotten into is turning on Gnome Pomodoro or the Xfce Time-Out plugin to remind myself to get up off my backside and move about for a few minutes. This is largely because I would spend way too much time in front of the computer and get a sore back as a result (I don't like pain, it h...

Sorry, I was not implying your installation is wrong. It is your machine, and you can install it any way you like. :D I was just trying to understand why you chose LVM.
