Re: Double volume icons in Mate 20.1?

OOPS ... Mint default panel just works and is fine for me. Click-Click and done.
The OP, somelurker, may have a default panel too ya know. Maybe you're a special case. ;)
... but your experience is well worth mentioning and I wasn't aware my easy solution might negatively affect some.

Re: Double volume icons in Mate 20.1?

Happens from time to time. Usually seems to be associated with some tweak I made or a system update of some sort. Only happens after a system restart. I hardly ever power down, so might happen occasionally on power up ... dunno. Seems to have been happening now and then for a couple of mint distro r...

Re: Why can't I disable System Reports?

Nope, once removed from Startup Applications and restart, System Reports does not appear in the system tray. I don't see it in System Monitor > (All) Processes either ... at least not listed as "System Reports" or by the command "mintreport-tray" anyway. Guess it's just an anomal...

Maybe I misunderstand the meaning of "bug" but I don't think personal opinions of what should be or shouldn't be Mint is a bug. Admittedly I did not watch the entire hour and a half video and skipped around for about 5 minutes but I didn't see any mention of a bug. ... Maybe nothing about ...

Re: Touchpad not working on Dell XPS

Someone with more experience than myself and know what they're talking about will chime in. Interesting that the touchpad works from live usb but not otherwise. Maybe boot USB and run a terminal command to check and see what touchpad drive is being used when boot from USB, then run a terminal comman...

I've noticed my desktop with 19.3 Mate seems to run up to about 10 degrees cooler than previous releases. Wondering if anyone else is having this experience?

Re: Mate vs Cinnamon

Stick with Cinnamon then. I prefer Mate. Tried Cinnamon a couple of times over the years but been a good long while. Cinnamon just wasn't as stable as Mate was for me at the time. Besides, I came from XP and Mate seemed to be a great replacement. Maybe Mate doesn't "glitter and pop", maybe...
