Re: I want to change the output format of `date`.

I'd prefer to see the ”+08” in parentheses, and include something like ”Philippines”in the output.

Re: why does my mint 19 boot into terminal

I figured it out now. I neglected to do step 10C the first time I did it. But now that I've done step 10C, I don't have this problem anymore.

I do have Mint-Y-Dark also for the buttons.
My buttons in my other apps like Nemo and PDF reader are black.

I want my VLC to be a dark theme, just like the rest of my mint (using Mint Y Dark)

I just upgraded from LM 18.3 (Cinnamon) to LM 19 yesterday. How can I get my VLC to have a dark theme, just like the rest of my Linux Mint? (I use Mint-Y-Dark).

This is how my VLC looks now. I wish it were a dark theme.

Re: Any negative ramifications for using multiple-Google-account sign-in setup?

If the only downside is ads, I don't mind.

Actually, can someone confirm that this multilple-account thingy is just on our browser, and not something that Google knows?

Re: How to see which programs are using bandwidth (and minimize usage) while on cellular data plan

Have a look at Nethogs ... it might already be installed on your system. Thanks for sharing. I like it. But is a program that shows per-program bandwidth usage for the past ____ (fill the blank with "10 minutes" or "hour" or some user-specified period)? Coz I can't keep looking at the terminal ever...

thanks, wh7qq.
I use Firefox too (with ublock origin). I'll try to remember to use noscript.

the pi solution won't work for me. I don't use a router. My internet would be coming from my smartphone.

How to see which programs are using bandwidth (and minimize usage) while on cellular data plan

How can I determine which programs (whether they're those that I have run consciously or programs that are running in the background) are using up the internet bandwidth, and see how much bandwidth reach is using. I ask because I plan to use my cell phone data to connect to the internet and I want t...

How can I get Mint 18.3 to treat a certain wifi connection as a mobile hotspot?

How can I get my Mint 18.3 to treat a particular wifi connection as a mobile hotspot? In other words, when I'm using a particular wifi connection, I don't want to only use bandwidth that I explicitly tell it to -- like the webpages I'm visiting. On Windows 10 computers, you have an option of marking...
