Re: What is glitchpeg.desktop?

I'm not sure what is going on. Do you think glitchpeg is installed? See if any sign of glitchpeg is in /etc/xdg/autostart/. If so, post the contents of that file. No sign in /etc/xdg/autostart/. Glitchpeg is installed as a component of xscreensaver-data-extra , presumably by default in Mint. What I...

Re: What is glitchpeg.desktop?

So, I have discovered that glitchpeg is a package within xscreensaver-data-extra. The question is why is it referenced in terminal printout when installing an unrelated package using dpkg? Is this normal or is it caused specifically by the package being installed?

[SOLVED] What is glitchpeg.desktop?

In /usr/share/applications/screensavers/ there is a file glitchpeg.desktop. What is its function? I ask because when installing an application (notecase pro) using dpkg a message appears stating that it is not possible to parse glitchpeg.desktop.
However,the installation proceeds without error.

Re: Double volume icons in Mate 20.1?

This was an issue in LM 20 Mate. Occasionally there are 2 volume icons and I have also seen 2 network icons. This does not affect performance and the surplus icons disappear on next boot. I decided to live with it.
