Re: Forgotten Password!!

Do you mean the password for your Linux Mint user account? If you can't recall it and you haven't set a root password (or can't recall it), you can work around that if you're not using disk encryption but it's a bit involved. It's probably easier to just do a fresh installation of Linux Mint.

Re: File manager set to single click; how to select multiple files with mouse?

Please add which file manager you're using, or at least which Linux Mint edition (Cinnamon, MATE or Xfce). If you're not sure check System Info in your menu or run inxi -S on the terminal. And in general, for new questions best to make a new topic and not add them to long ago solved topics.

Re: Which branch of Debian is LMDE based on? Unstable, Testing or Stable?

LMDE 3 is based on Debian Stretch. At the time of release of LMDE 3 that was stable. Currently it's old-stable.

LMDE 4 will be based on Debian Buster.

Re: Mint 19.2 Security Updates install fail with <TypeError>

Have you logged out and back in, or rebooted, since this issue happened? Perhaps update manager is stuck in a weird state.

Re: Mint 19.2 Security Updates install fail with <TypeError>

Try installing these updates from the terminal as workaround. Run these two commands:

Code: Select all

apt update
apt install mintinstall mint-common

Assuming the panel is still shown, right-click an empty spot on it and from the menu select Troubleshoot > Restore all settings to default.

Re: Can you add shortcuts (links) to specific workspaces?

I think you misunderstood the question, at least I think this is about shortcut files on the desktop appearing on all workspaces instead of just one. @jvmachado: please add which Linux Mint version (e.g. 19.2) you are using and which desktop environment (e.g. Cinnamon, MATE or Xfce). If you're not s...

Re: Post installation problems

Welcome to the forums! 1) I can't answer to the amount but yes, a CPU with integrated graphics like yours doesn't have dedicated RAM like a discrete graphics card has. So it uses part of system RAM as graphics RAM. You may be able to configure the size in your BIOS, if not otherwise. I only have exp...

Re: Firefox crash at startup

Try creating a new user account through Users & Groups in your menu. Log out and log in as the new user. Try starting Firefox from there. If Firefox works on the other account there must be something in your own account besides the .mozilla directory that is causing an issue. Confirm it first, then ...

Re: Terminal doesn't open.

Might be the case. What rene is referring to is that you may have run programs with sudo which would change ownership of files in your directory to the root user. That cause issues like programs no longer opening, because they can no longer access files as you. Two approaches you can take. You can e...

Can you recall having changed anything in its preferences or in your configuration files .bashrc or .profile or similar?

Re: Installing gnome Shell Extensions in Linux Mint Cinnamon

Yeah, this won't work. Cinnamon was forked from Gnome Shell more than 7 years ago and code that wasn't needed was removed. Both Cinnamon and Gnome Shell have seen many releases since then and with each release the code diverged more and more. Gnome Shell extensions have never worked on Cinnamon and ...

What are you going to offer that will make people pay to view, otherwise gratis, manpages.
DLC, season passes or loot boxes for manpages? But I'm not an entrepreneur so yeah, you do you :wink:

Hi Flemur, happy to read that. As to the outbox; when you submit a PM it first goes into your outbox and stays there till a recipient has read it, then it moves to your sent messages. So while it is in your outbox you can still edit it before the recipient reads it. I think if you submit a PM there ...
