Re: Steam now lets you play Windows games on Linux

I find it much less able to run games than PlayOnLinux + newest version of Wine.

Out of 3 games that worked on steam installed on Wine that I tried so far, all 3 can't be played and crash.

Re: Why are programs allowed to overtake processor and memory to the point of stalling the system?

System Monitor sure shows that in a hurry. I have more trouble with the browser trying to load a bad page, than anything else. cpu#3 goes to 100% and game over. I hit ^Q and wait, and eventually it exits. Yeah, it's also mainly browser for me. Especially with YouTube lately. Though I generally wond...

Why are programs allowed to overtake processor and memory to the point of stalling the system?

I find it bewildering that stuff like that can actually happen. One would think that there would be some kind of a mechanism that would prevent programs from making the system unresponsive.

Re: Linux Gaming

I miss serious wargames on Linux. Have to run them through Wine unfortunately and sometimes getting bugs from it. Also, the downside of there being much more new games on Linux is that they are made on Unity and often suffer from terrible performance. Sometimes I have an impression they'd work bette...

LM19 Mate scanning, resolution problems.

I can't set 100dpi resolution, only 75, 150, 300, 600, 1200, 2400. I need to scan at 100dpi. When I was using Kubuntu 16.04, I could simply type desired resolution . Now I need to pick from menu. Is it because of new scanner or is there some change in the scanning software in LM19? Is there any way ...

Re: Scanmagic 1200 UB no longer detected after installing LM19 Mate

Thanks for the replies. I tried them all but it still doesn't detect it.

I realised that the most probable reason is that it's dead, IIRC it would usually power up when system boots. My previous computer got motherboard fried by dying PSU, so I guess it must have killed it too.

Re: Scanmagic 1200 UB no longer detected after installing LM19 Mate

I would check in Synaptic Package Manager, use "sane" in the quick-search box, to see if libsane , a few other libsane libraries, and the sane-utils are installed. Oh, and most likely one would need the simple-scan program. There's no libsane package in the package manager. Could it be the reason s...

Scanmagic 1200 UB no longer detected after installing LM19 Mate

Hello.

I recently got a new comp and installed LM19 Mate. My scanner, which used to work on older Linux Mint and Ubuntu 16.04 isn't detected any more :cry: .

Any idea what's happening and how to make it work?

Probably thunar.

Do you find thunar to be slow or unstable? If so, how?
I don't have multi-tabbed browsing in thunar. I have Thunar 1.4.0. I'm not sure how to get a new version.

Good file managers for Xfce?

Hello. I have Linux Mint Xfce. I have a problem with finding a good file manager. I hate Thunar because it's too simplistic and lacks tabbed browsing. I like PCManFM the most but it keeps crashing and sometimes when it crashes it won't run again until I'll restart computer. Tried Dolphin but it's ve...

Re: Why does Cinnamon need PulseAudio

I'm new around here, what is PulseAudio? PulseAudio is one (the best so far?) open source sound system available for Linux. Not for me and many others who end up having to go through the PulseAudio replacement process after every new install. Though I wonder why for some people it works well and fo...

Re: Could steam gaming on linux be the death of windows?

I mean (but didn't say) most home computers. Thanks for pointing this out. :) Most of them run Windows 7, Vista or XP. It's a much smaller jump from those operating systems to Linux MATE than to Windows 8's tablet GUI. Exactly. It's not that change has to mean moving to Linux. Change may also mean ...

I don't see anything wrong about asking for donations for further development. Though I find the way it's written rather annoying. Adware and trading user's data is pretty bad, though.

Changing file manager in 13

The file manager has no tabbed browsing, no bookmarks and no search. Is it possible to replace it with something functional without breaking anything?
