Re: Dismount & Eject commands not functioning correctly on Linux Mint & Ubuntu

I re-tried for light problem this morning using a Crucial/Micron SSD drive in the enclosure instead of the Western Digitals that I had been using and now I can NOT get the enclosure light to MIS-behave (works like it is supposed to). Do you think this is because of change in brand of SSD drive or is...

pcmanfm replacement for caja

Can PCMANFM file manager be used to replace CAJA file manager on Linux Mint 19.3 mate ?

And if so, should caja be un-installed first or can/should both of these be installed at the same time ?

Thanks.

Why is it that sometimes the incoming email notification on Evolution is about 3 inches in length and sometimes it is only about 2 inches in length ? Right off hand, I do not see anything in the preferences that might control this and even if there was, I can not understand why the length VARIES. Hm...

Re: Does Linux Mint 19.3 mate support USB 3.0 "IF" using legacy bios (not uefi)?

As I said above, it does not do it on MX Linux and MX is the top ranked distro on Distrowatch ??? You observed a bug in the distrowatch ranking software, which, for some reason, lists MX Linux first if you access the page from a search .. until you do the sort, then MX Linux is moves down to 18th p...

The blinking light is to tell you the USB drive is in standby mode. Does that will all modern Linux - Centos, OpenSUSE, Fedora, Mint and Ubuntu.

partition types

Are NTFS, exFAT & HPFS one and the same thing ?

The reason I ask is because when I look at the partition description of a hard drive that
I formatted as NTFS, the partition type is listed in Linux / Disk as NTFS/exFAT/HPFS.

Thanks.
