Re: Where to Report Bugs?

Indeed, the GitHub project you linked to is from an obsoleted no longer supported Linux Mint release. Had you looked on your system you would have found that the gnome-keyring package comes from the Ubuntu/Debian package base, is a system service, and that the Passwords & Keys program comes from the...

Re: Trouble with install of "Pale Moon Browser" For Linux

That's the C library used by a lot of programs and OS components. Upgrading it on your system without testing everything risks breaking it. libc6 2.28 is only available on Ubuntu 18.10 and newer. Linux Mint 19.x are based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Mind that Pale Moon have separate repositories for Ubuntu...

Re: Where to Report Bugs?

Have you determined: - the exact component responsible for the issue? - whether the issue is the component is due to Linux Mint or the Ubuntu/Debian package base? - do you have clear steps with which you can reproduce the issue? If the answer to any of those is "no" then you've not completed trouble...

Re: How to add libreoffice writer's .docx template to right click menu?

1. Create a new document in Writer. 2. Use "Save As" from the file menu and change the format to .docx and give it a name you want. 3. Put the file in the Templates directory in your home directory. Just a regular file. Templates directory doesn't do anything magical; it's just a directory with file...

Re: Print tiff to PDF

I'd suggest to use GIMP instead. It comes installed on Linux Mint by default. Open the tiff file in GIMP, modify it as needed (like scale to proper print resolution), and try printing to PDF from there or try exporting to PDF. At least here printing to PDF from GIMP has all the options you asked abo...

Re: Free Synth VST plugins?

If you're using lmms, I'd go through the VSTs they have tested as I linked you to: https://lmms.io/documentation/Tested_VSTs. For more suggestions the lmms forum is probably a better place to find people that would know.

Re: Extract RGB values via Terminal?

I fully agree with GS3. After getting more detail and seeing the example image, I don't think you will easily solve this with a scanner and software.

Certainly the script I provided won't work. Running it on your example returns 83,394 unique colors in that image! Unusable for your purposes.

Re: Sort image files by metadata

You can do this easily by combining the find and exiv2 commands. First make sure exiv2 is installed so run this command on the terminal: apt install exiv2 Once it's installed open a terminal on the directory where you have all the files and then you can run this command: find . -type f -iregex '.*\....

Re: Interest: Coming to a PC near you - 56 cores, 112 threads and sucking 400 Watts

Only thing I want to know is they've put any Spectre mitigations in silicon or if we still have to do it in software or disable hyperthreading—both having performance impact. I'm much more interested in AMD's upcoming new CPUs with Zen 2 cores. AMD has mitigations in silicon in Zen 2 cores and AMD h...

Re: SetBfree

If not, you must have either removed some of the default repositories or added some repositories (like PPAs) to your...

Re: Extract RGB values via Terminal?

I couldn't find a ready made program to extract the complete list of colors of an image but it's easily scripted using Python and Pillow, the Python Image Library. For this first install the package python3-pil. You can do so with command: apt install python3-pil Then create a plain text file and pu...

Re: missing destination file opera day after ‘tightvncserver’

As Linux Mint doesn't run on Raspberry Pi computers, suggest you clarify what operating system you're running. I've moved this topic here as this isn't about Linux Mint. You may probably want to ask this instead on the support channels for the operating system you're using on your Raspberry Pi.

Re: XFCE alongside Mate

Yes but you'll end up with some duplication as MATE and Xfce each have their own file manager for example, so you end up with two file managers in your menu. If you don't mind that you can most easily just install the package mint-meta-xfce which will install all you need. From the terminal with com...

Re: Crontab does not work properly.

The above script brought up nothing. Nothing happened. Have I missed something? 22 23 14 4 * "/home/matthew/Testing" In the crontab you didn't redirect output to a file, and you have to MTA set up, so output goes nowhere. Make it: 22 23 14 4 * "/home/matthew/Testing" &> /home/matthew/cron.log

Oh sorry. Misunderstood. You could use a placeholder script like this:

"/home/matthew/@/Sync/FreeFileSync"

Re: Crontab does not work properly.

I think in crontab context there is no desktop set for GUI programs to run on so neither of these commands will work.

I don't understand what you're trying to do by running Gnome Disks and then opening a location if (I assume) your file manager through crontab.
