Re: Alternative to Chromium?

I have installed this one, but have not used it, yet, and can not vouch for its integrity.

Re: <Solved> Xed Recents files seem to have an expiration date.

I think I may have solved the problem. I usually make changes to System Settings, as soon as I make a new install and I believe I did this, when I installed LM20. The error seems to have been a setting of 7 under: System Settings > Recent Files > Number of days to remember old files I expect the pro...

<Solved> Xed Recents files seem to have an expiration date.

Prior to LM 20, the Recents files would remain until they were rolled off by other files being opened.

Now,they just disappear unexpectedly, apparently after a time.
Maybe a week or 2.

Is there a setting to prevent this?
I can't find it, even with dconf editor...

Re: Ventoy Persistence has become discouraging. What have I done wrong.?

I expect Mint can handle the exfat and fat16 format, just fine. It is a very limited application, anyway. Persistence.img is contained in an ext4 filesystem partition. It seems to be reserving a dedicated space for ventoy settings, leaving the remainder available to other applications not related to...

Re: Ventoy Persistence has become discouraging. What have I done wrong.?

Hi, Kseanfitz_1.

I tried mkUSB a couple of years ago. It locked my USB stick and I never spent the time trying to figure it out. I think I ended up trashing the stick.

I like what I've seen with Ventoy, very much, and expect to use it instead of MultiSystem.

Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Ventoy Persistence has become discouraging. What have I done wrong.?

Installs and Boots fine, whether the Partition Table is msdos or GPT. I finally found the -g option and it is now on a GPT Partition Table, Formatted as ext4. I am at a loss after trying different things, including reinstalling a couple of times. No Persistence option in the menu. No Persistence in ...

Re: How best to repartition a USB SSD..?

Thank you, AndyMH. I can't tell you how encouraging that is, since I didn't relish the idea of moving a lot of 1 to 2 GB files. I had attached and linked to a snapshot, but the link seems to have been removed since I posted. Maybe the wrong format..? My familiar and simple photo editing tools are no...

I'm led to believe the issue is a crappy company belonging to Alphabet, call google and their device Recaptcha .

Re: Not Solved - Verticle Scrolling causes flashing-flickering in Pale Moon

Problem seems resolved on another site, but not on the Mint forums.

I'll have to test it later, after rebooting.

Not Solved - Verticle Scrolling causes flashing-flickering in Pale Moon

Edit: Called it Solved. The problem seems to have gone away. I don't know if it was the libgd3 update, today, or 2 python3 updates on Wednesday. Or something else. I corrected my failure to Apply when I forced the earlier version and the problem seems to be resolved. Version 65.0.3325.181-0ubuntu1 i...

As a thinkpad fan, what's wrong with lenovo? The thinkpads are very linux friendly. Lenovos are Linux friendly but, as someone else pointed out, they have been caught loading spyware on their computers, some of which is hard to remove, such as the infamous Superfish.

Re: Recommend a laptop brand, not Dell.

Not much help to you as I am in Australia. I go to a local auction house who still run live auctions. Another (also local - only run web auctions, but pickup is always local). Thanks, anyway. I used to have some US.gov auction links, but it would take some looking around to see if I still have them.

I've been noticing that in looking around, getting acquainted.
Mine is also plugged in most of the time.
