[SOLVED] MATE Terminal questions...?

Two quick questions / issues with MATE Terminal on Mint 19 if anybody can help. I've noticed that in the MATE Terminal in Mint 19, the username/hostname are the same color as the command text now where they used to be different. At a glance this is a bit annoying as they all blend together. Is there...

[SOLVED] Re: Mint 19 Upgrade - Vino gone?

You can install Vino on LM19, I did it, but the vino-server command to start the server wouldn't work - just told me the command didn't exist? Also couldn't figure out what file I had to edit or what to do in the command line to set up the settings the way I wanted them either... Use dconf-editor t...

Re: new laptop won't run linux

Any help is appreciated! :)
