Re: Textmarker Add-On Not Working In Firefox Mint Cinnamon

There are a lot of notes on that extension's page: arts of the underlying WebExtensions API are not supported on Android and ESR. Textmarker stopped working? Please save a backup of your highlights and settings (you can do so on Textmarker's "Export & Import" page), uninstall Textmarker, restart Fir...

Default keyboard shortcut on Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon for zoom in is Alt+Super+= and for zoom out Alt+Super+-. In Accessibility in your menu you first need to toggle Desktop Zoom on and if you want the magnifying glass also toggle Lens mode on. Then those shortcuts work. In Accessibility you can als...

Re: Play key working just in app open first

If you mean the play/pause media key on your keyboard, I have similar issue with Chromium hijacking that key and it not working in my music player (Lollypop) at times. Though I can't pin it to which program was started first. If you're using Google Play Music in Chrome, this could be worth a shot: h...

Re: TS video files treated as text or executable

I can't say whether the bug was fixed and some later code change has caused a regression, or the issue is related to your use of Windows filesystem for storing the files. I don't use Windows filesystems (NTFS) on Linux but know there are some peculiarities like all files being marked as executable, ...

Re: TS video files treated as text or executable

I found an old bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/shared-mime-info/+bug/502642 which seems to describe your issue; that a video file with extension .ts is instead detected as a linguist file (which file type also had that extension). Did you copy the video files to your computer or do you...

Re: Text editor

If you mean a plain text editor, that's Xed. It should show up when searching for text. Which Linux Mint version do you have and what desktop environment? (if unsure, check System Info in your menu or run inxi -S on terminal)

For document editing (with text formatting) there's LibreOffice Writer.

Re: TS video files treated as text or executable

File extensions are mostly meaningless on Linux. Have you determined what the file type of the .ts files is, as Linux knows it? To find out please open a terminal in a directory where you file a .ts file and then run these commands with the filename of a .ts file (replace filename.ts with the name o...

Re: root needs password when login

If you Ctrl+Alt+Backspace on the official ISO just type 'mint' as username and leave the password blank, that will log you in. You can't login to the desktop as root. If you're using a customized ISO that comes with multiple desktop environments (the official ISOs each have only one desktop environm...

Re: Partition Query

The installer does that by default. The extended partition can be subdivided into multiple logical partitions; primary partitions can't. This is just partition table legacy from MS-DOS days. Whether you put /home on a primary partition or on a logical partition inside the extended partition make no ...

Thanks, but it seems like I have to click it to find out **every time**. I'd like it permanently displayed with the clock or somewhere. Is there a setting for that? Like I wrote, configure the username to always be shown. You do that in Cinnamon Settings > Applets and click the gearwheel icon next ...

Add the User Applet to your panel and configure it to show the username. You need to do that on all accounts.

Re: A new dimwit with Logitech issues

Good to know. For as far as Solaar doesn't let you remap mouse buttons it will get technical quite fast to do it on your own. This is for another Linux distro so may need some modification, but at least has some info and examples on remapping buttons: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Logitech_MX...
