Re: Linux Mint 20 success or issues

1-Fixed Wine issue Mint use have a default config. Now you have to find the config option for wine and config it before Wine has an entry in the main menu. 2-Using unaligned desktop still restricting to 5 times the space between icons compared to 18.3. Cannot align icons close to each other. The fix...

Re: Linux Mint 20 success or issues

I'm staying with Linux Mint 18.3. Mint 20 and Cinnamon almost nothing works properly. 1-Wine does not work at all after installing via synaptic. Just does nothing when trying to execute a windows app No entries exist in the Mint main menu for Wine either? 2-Desktop non aligned icons forces way too m...

Re: Linux Mint 20 success or issues

The four issues with LM20 I've found to date are: display issues on external monitor to laptop - fixable with xrandr. chromium - well documented with work-arounds. encfs-manager - ppa doesn't support focal. shutter - no longer in repos, but a potential fix (not tried it) with a ppa (post at the end...

Re: Nemo does not support Paste from Dolphin or Konqueror

That sounds pretty normal to me ... in Linux DEs the file manager is usually highly integrated with the desktop. Even if you were just using one of the ones you added it'd probably never work as well as the one that came with Cinnamon does. This is largely why I don't bother with adding file manage...

Re: WiFi Adapter not recognizing

Same problem for me not recognizing wifi adapter linux mint 19.3 cinnamon LATEST release but was supported with no issue in Linuxmint 18.3 and below, it seems the QA testing is deteriating on the linux mint development team.

Re: When copying files, Nemo freezes.. [SOLVED]

None of this 'resolved' Post explains what caused the problem. Any Linux distribution (they have 2) published by IBM never has these problems. I believe the Quality of the Developers at IBM are far superior to Ubuntu/Linux Mint developers, especially when it comes to QA testing prior to a release. A...

Solved machine hangs on resume from hibernate. Mint 18.2

I solved the Hibernate/ Resume problem last night (by coincidence it was my birthday) by installing via command line APT USWSUSP  then un-installing it completely via synaptic GUI. After that it worked nobody knows why? Like many bugs in Linux Mint/Ubuntu even when the bug gets solved, nobody ever f...

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 Hangs when resume from suspend

I forgot to add; Hibernate/Resume is a simple function and trivial code, even in Assembler language.
We all know how much code it takes to write all Ram to disk, save the mouse pointer location, then simply restore it on Resume. Disgraceful to have such a simple function fail.

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 Hangs when resume from suspend

Best solution is to try and reach the developers at ubuntu site. Linux Mint developers do not read this site. It is obvious that Linux Ubuntu/Mint developers do crappy Quality Assurance testing. This has been an unsolved Bug for over 5 years. We either have to go back to LinuxMint 17.3 where it last...

None of these options work for me permanently. The sidebar always too small. This happened after installing an update to nemo on mint 18. This Sucks. Why the F*** did the developers touch what was working. Don't they realize when an update is installed they should NOT change current settings. I try ...

Re: USB Monitors Not Supported by Linux Mint

To update my previous comment. If you do not select "Mirror" device screens. it defaults to "EXTENDED" mode and only the primary has the full original desktop but you can drag and drop across screens, thereby extending your screen real estate. The extended mode simply displays your wallpaper at star...

If you select any file in either Dolphin or Konqueror and do Copy or Cut and go to a fiolder being displayed by Nemo, right click and Paste is grayed out. What's up with this? The reverse works, Dolphin and Konqueror properly paste what was copied or cut in a Nemo display. This has never worked as f...

Re: suspend/hibernate broken after upgrade of Maya to all subsequent versions

Yes. And while I never use suspend but do use Hibernate, in my experience this is one of the more basic and simple features to implement. Lets face it functionally Hibernate takes all active Ram pages and writes it to the swap file. On resume it SIMPLY reads back the swap file into Ram and 'Branches...

Re: suspend/hibernate broken after upgrade of Maya to all subsequent versions

It does not matter if it is the Kernel or any other component that the developers do NOT maintain, has changed. They did SHIT regression testing. Maybe you never heard the term.

Also nemo does not correctly handle ...
