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 ...

Re: How do I display the user name?

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...

It should allow you to read battery status of the devices and give you a few configuration options though I didn't see anything on scroll wheel direction. You can install the package solaa...

Welcome to the Linux Mint forums. I think it would be better to split this into to topics, as they aren't related to each other.

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon Beta: Tor Browser will not start

Actually no, it's trying to wrap it into another shell: https://github.com/linuxmint/nemo/blob/master/libnemo-private/nemo-program-choosing.c#L387 That's not it i think. That bit of code only runs if command line has pkexec on it which this file doesn't use: https://github.com/linuxmint/nemo/blob/m...

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon Beta: Tor Browser will not start

I did some further testing. Retesting on Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon, double-clicking the Tor Browser Setup file on that doesn't work either. Going back to Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon there double-clicking the Tor Browser Setup file does work. On both Linux Mint 19.2 MATE and Linux Mint 19.2 Xfce double-cli...

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon Beta: Tor Browser will not start

I think the problem is Tor Browser comes with a self-modifying desktop launcher file. Perhaps that is what is new, and not Linux Mint 19.2. It sounds scary but looks harmless: #!/usr/bin/env ./Browser/execdesktop # # This file is a self-modifying .desktop file that can be run from the shell. # It pr...

Re: Why is Cinnamon amazingly slow at generating JPG thumbnails?

Could you also try this from Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon? It would be good to know if you experience the same issue with the new version. I can't quite follow why Caja's thumbnailer would be slow on Cinnamon and fast on MATE. Can you confirm that you also tried Nemo on MATE and that is was fast on that...

You can also do this from command line with the -t switch. Like if you want to open your Downloads and...

Re: Taking the plunge

Have you booted your computer from the DVD or USB that you created from the ISO file? Once booted into the live session of Linux Mint you will find a Install Linux Mint icon on the desktop.
