Re: Does Subtitleeditor still crash when opening video file?

SubtitleEdit Installation Procedure Amendment It appears that package mono-complete does not need to be installed, as the Mono with which Petra Cinammon already comes is sufficient for our purposes. So, just need: apt install --install-recommends mplayer2 apt install --install-recommends libmono-wi...

Hi Andrew, your specs look better than mine, except perhaps my graphics card NVIDIA C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] may be more advanced. Have ~1 GHz processor and 1GB RAM running Petra Cinnamon,...

That's right. So one has to be careful when copying command from file listing not to inadvertently include tab character after command :evil:

Re: Bash Guru?

Thanks very much Karlchen :o No, copied command from Gedit file that was open. Line in file was a bit funny, in that it line wrapped prematurely. Had then copied line to scratch file and dumped the file. Command line ended with \t \t \n.

Disabling Mouse Doubleclick

This is the second mouse that's going on the blink. Sends Doubleclick more often than not when being single clicked. Don't use doubleclick anyway, so for any suggestion on disabling, will be grateful :idea:

How about before killing cinnamon you kill cinnamon-screen, did work the one time had to do it. Anyway if you have to kill cinnamon, just have to open the applications once more, but all your settings are still there :)

Re: Crash in firefox and problems with brasero

WRT brassero; it has had problems for more than 5 years, more likely closer to 10 years. Why it is default in many linux distros is puzzling. I sometime suspect that it has something to do with gnome devs (stubborness?), but that is only my guess. It has often made coasters out of cds/dvds for me.....
