Re: How to upgrade to Linux Mint 20.1

As I drag out the Staples Red Button and press it, the strains of "That Was Easy"can be heard. :D No really, took only a few minutes from start to finish. Now if only upgrading from LM 20 to LM 21 would be as easy. :)

Re: Having trouble remembering my bath.

Or if you live in a house, not a flat or bungalow - turn the tap on, take the laptop into the room underneath the bathroom and wait for the drips of water to start hitting your head. The flaw with that method is eventually the bath will fall through as the boards under it will rot. I lived in a tra...

Re: Customize the length of the desktop panel

To make the panel shorter just: 1) Right click on the panel, click on panel then Panel Preferences. Uncheck Lock Panel. 2) If Automatically Increase the length is checked, uncheck it. 3) In the Measurements section look for Length (%), move the slider till the panel width is the size you want. 4) Yo...

Re: How can i change "system tray" icons?

So Linux Mint is following the trend of 2-D grayscale flat icons. Why, oh why? Don't they realize it's harder to identify icons like this, when they are all in grayscale? The madness in the world of computer programing continues. Computer apps are de volving, just like the rest of the world around ...

Re: Linux Mint 19.1 “Tessa” Cinnamon released!

Did the upgrade to Linux Mint 19.1. Works fine, but..... If you use the "Modern" layout, then you can configure the mint menu, and other mint panel applets. If you choose the Traditional layout, it works, but several Mint Cinnamon Applets you can't configure, like the Menu, or Places. Weir...

Re: Right click selects an option in popup menus

I found the answer! It turns out this problem is just caused by poorly made Themes. To fix the problem: (At least in Mint 13 with MATE) Go to Preferences , then Appearance , then the Theme tab... Choose a different theme. Then test to make sure your right-click works properly. Note: There are more ...

Re: Lost Background

Don't think this is a Mint problem, as I'm running Xubuntu 12.10 with Xfce & LXDE on another computer, and the LXDE side has started doing the same thing. Funny thing is, it's random. Sometimes I can go the entire session with no problems, other times I'll be doing something, like in Firefox, an...

Update: That's odd! The keyboard power button works again (I dont know what fixed it as I changed nothing). :?:
The same reason any appliance starts working again when the repairman comes by! The machines are out to get us! ;)

Glad it's working though! :D

Re: Thunar opening delay and opening twice.

Think I read somewhere that the next Xubuntu (12.10) will have the 4.10 Xfce included & it's Thunar won't have this problem. Can't wait to upgrade. ;)

And glad what I found helped. ;)
