Re: Desktop Shortcuts/Links

Mine, too, is now like All41's. However, I did open dconf-editor, then went to: / org / nemo / preferences / and changed the following to "ON" context-menus-show-all-actions EDIT: I've just realised that you don't need dconf-editor, "Use full context menu" is the last but two option on Nemo's "Edit"...

Re: Problems when permanently mounting a nas drive in fstab

I had similar problems a while ago, before I discovered this: " Recent kernels changed the default SMB protocol version to 3.0; it used to be 1.0. The issue likely is that your server does not speak 3.0. You can specify the version to mount with by adding e.g. "vers=1.0", "vers=2.0" or "vers=2.1" to...

Pierre - it's not really his choice, it's his step-dad's machine. The OP was the one that wanted to install LM to begin with but the step-dad didn't/doesn't want that.

Re: Microsoft One Note

Glad it helped you. I haven't made much use of tables in Evernote. However, is you do work out how to re-size then please post on here so that others might be helped. :)

Re: Microsoft One Note

Nixnote2 is just a (unofficial) linux client for Evernote. You choose your Evernote account and log in just as you would with the Evernote Win10 client or a web client. You can choose your own sync settings, theme etc. More info on the Nixnote2 2.1 fork here: https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/11/ev...

Removing window-list also removes Grouped-Window-List

Thanks all. I've noted it on github. A workaround seems to be to copy an existing launcher and manually edit its properties to match those that you originally wanted to create! 8)

I discovered an alternative to Whatsap-Desktop and Rambox, it seems to work well and is called Whatdesk:

Re: WhatsApp desktop app looking for Google Chrome

Well, this worked for me but only after I hit "View - Reload" BEFORE closing the "Developer Tools" windows.

Bye, bye Rambox!

Re: WhatsApp desktop app looking for Google Chrome

Use Rambox (free edition) instead. That is working fine.
