Re: Mint 20, wine, 32-bit application

In Synaptic check if you have wine32:i386 installed. If not, install it.

[Solved] How can I reset dpi from terminal?

O a new install to SSD I have increased dpi to a level that prevents me from accessing Appearance to change it back to the default 96. Can I do this from the terminal?

Will LM 20 install on encrypted SSD?

I have recently purchased a Micron MX500 SSD with a view to replacing the HDD. Micron says the SSD has AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption . I have read about problems with installing LM 20 on encrypted drives. Does this mean it would be impossible to install it on this SSD? If so, is a fix for th...

Caja: New window opening in same folder as original window

Since upgrade to Mint Mate 20 there has been a change in behaviour when opening a new window. Previously the new window always opened in the home folder. Now it opens in the same folder as the first window. Obviously any default is arbitrary but this does not make sense. Usually I want to copy to or...

Re: "Could not install the security updates."

@1nuBJim, This is probably a false error message which can be ignored. I have seen it before on my system. On checking I found that the security updates had been installed and all was well. In Update Manager look in View>History of Updates. Make a note of security updates before running the update s...

Re: Unable to install security updates

@Alfie_ca I have also occasionally seen the "Unable to install security updates" message in Update Manager after carrying out updates. However, after checking everything seems to have been updated. On reopening Update Manager it is shown as up to date on updates. I concluded, perhaps incorrectly, th...

Re: Thunderbird Mail going to Bulk

Is the mail from the "family address" delivered to a "special email account"? If so this account may have been set up to store mail in Bulk unlike the others which are stored separately in their own folders.
