Nemo stopped showing embedded images as thumbnails for MKV video files

Sometime during the last few weeks Nemo stopped showing as thumbnails the JPEG images that I have embedded into my MKV video files (using MKVToolNix GUI). Nemo also stopped (possibly at the same time) showing embedded cover art for my FLAC files, but I got that problem solved by installing Xplayer. ...

Re: Does an operating system upgrade also upgrade file systems on all disks?

... does the file system version upgrade affect the disks that are already formatted and in use... In one word or less, no. To make sure that I understand that right, is it because there is nothing to change, or because the change would require reformatting the disk (or some other big operation)? I...

Does an operating system upgrade also upgrade file systems on all disks? <SOLVED>

Hello, I've been wondering that when the operating system is upgraded, and the upgrade includes a new version of the file system, does the file system version upgrade affect the disks that are already formatted and in use, and thus contain a previous version of the file system. I don't even know, if...

Re: Linux Mint Keep Asking For Password Over and Over Again

That's okay, I've moved it. It has de facto become your thread now anyway... Thank you. I don't know if it's sad or funny (surely embarrassing), but I noticed a little earlier that I thought I was replying to a different forum thread. That's why I said "I saw no difference in the original post...

Re: Linux Mint Keep Asking For Password Over and Over Again

The command "ll" gave me "No such command", Sounds like you messed up the system quite a bit... Why do you say I messed the system up? The problem started with changed permissions, and it's very unlikely that I would have accidentally changed them. Also, my Mint version is Cinna...

Code: Select all

The command "ll" gave me "No such command", but I found out it to be (assumably) the same as "ls -l, which I used instead:

Re: Linux Mint Keep Asking For Password Over and Over Again

Run this: rm ~/.Xauthority* ~/.ICEauthority* I already did that. That's what I meant with "Then I deleted .ICEauthority and .Xauthority." To be sure, should I do it again? You did not run that yet, there is a subtle but important difference in the command to address the locking error you ...

Re: Linux Mint Keep Asking For Password Over and Over Again

2. Messed up permissions, run sudo chown -Rc $USER:$USER $HOME 3. Corrupt authentication caches, run rm ~/.Xauthority ~/.ICEauthority 4. If none of that helps, run startx and check the error message(s) I noticed a couple of days ago, that I wasn't able to remove some (personal) files from my home f...

Re: Mint 19.3: Set The Root Password "Nag Screen"

I also think that the root password "nag screen" could have been worded better. This is how I experienced it: - Why is this password thing suddenly being brought up now? I haven't been doing anything out of normal recently. I've just been using my computer. Or have I accidentally done some...

Re: Nemo: preview icon for files larger than 32Gb?

Thanks gm10, your terminal command worked. My video collection looks very nice now in Nemo :). I'm sorry for not replying earlier. I only noticed your reply a moment ago. I hope Nemo developers will make this setting available in Nemo preview settings. More and more people are going to experience th...

[SOLVED] Nemo: preview icon for files larger than 32Gb?

In settings of the Nemo file manager the upper size limit for preview icons is 32Gb. I wonder if anyone knows a workaround for this. I have a few video files larger than that, and it doesn't look nice to have the preview icon missing from them while other files have the preview icon. Is there perhap...

Re: How To Remove Linux Mint Custom Google Search in Firefox

Escaping from Ubuntu and Unity I just installed Linux Mint for the first time, and was immediately faced with an annoying feature of custom Google search. I could probably live with the ads, but removing a search feature is unacceptable. Narrowing the time frame for the search is something that I us...
