Re: Alt-Tab Switcher Select Frame Color

It is so bad nobody heard me! Linux Mint 19.2 is here but the goddamn frame color setting that steals so lot of my time is still there! :evil:
Please tell me WHO is managing it?!
Is it a part of Caja File manager, or what?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Alt-Tab Switcher Select Frame Color - give me a hint at least!

Guys,
no one knows where that God damn frame color setting is? Is it possible?!
At least give me a hint: if it's not in theme settings - where else can it be??
Thanks!

Re: HP LaserJet Professional p1102 or CUPs problem?

ClixTrix, thank you for your advice! This printer worked with HPLIP in previous versions and did not require any additional plugins - why some special plugin now?? I will check everything once again.

Re: GUI Standards required

Guys, thanks for the great discussion! :D
Linux Mint is great as it is and will be even better!
But a little standardization of window elements would be beneficial.
I vote for a standard menu bar that goes from File to Help menu items!

GUI Standards required

During my 8 years of using Linux Mint I've seen quite a lot of apps that were somewhat strange. They worked OK, but their appearance was unusual and they were kind of inferior. They come to my mind now because couple of days ago I've read somewhere (I'm not sure - maybe it was Gnome website) that Li...

Re: HP LaserJet Professional p1102 or CUPs problem?

I installed the plugin - but this seems kind of redundant and confusing. I plug in the printer, it gets discovered correctly, the driver installs automatically - but the printer does not print! Turns out I need some additional plugin! :shock: Why?? After installing the plugin I didn't know how to pr...

CompizConfig Static App switcher

Hello guys, I am on LM 19.1 Mate. I use Mint-Y-Dark-Blue theme and when I use Alt+Tab to switch between open windows, I can not see the black frame - on dark grey background - that highlights the selected window in the switcher box. The switcher settings seem to be located in CompizConfig -Window ma...

Re: How to change highlight color?

I've posted it here because on the whole forum only this thread discussed the item of my interest. Besides, though I'm on Mate, I'm using Mint-Y-Dark-Blue theme and it uses cinnamon.css file for its settings. OK, I'll post my question on Mate board.

HP LaserJet Professional p1102 or CUPs problem?

Hi guys, 5+ years ago I have installed Linux Mint on a computer of a lady, who is a music teacher in her 70-ies, because she was exhausted with Windows problems. She just needs to write something for her students and to print it on her HP LaserJet Professional p1102 printer from time to time. It all...

Re: How to change highlight color?

I meant Alt-Tab GUI - please see the picture: switcher.jpg Please find the black frame that is drawn around the central image. I can hardly see it. I want it in different contrasting color to make it clearly visible. Sorry about the picture quality. It is impossible to take a screenshot of this box.

Re: How to bring terminal colors back to the way they were in Mint 18?

I expect "you" respectively "BY MISTAKE" since everything's colourful for me and I seem to have the default Mint 19.1 ~/.bashrc, as verified per comparing it with /etc/skel/.bashrc (i.e., the default ~/.bashrc a new user gets). You may be using a weird terminal or have set the TERM environment vari...

Guys, thank you for the explanations! TL;DR is the main problem of our age. Go read that documentation 1400 pages. Then go read another documentation 1400 pages. And so on. You know.
