Re: Can gnome-online-accounts be removed?

No you can't; Cinnamon Control Center has a hard dependency on gnome-online-accounts.

If you haven't configured any online accounts it doesn't do anything.

Re: Update manager error

Automatic upgrades run daily through /etc/cron.daily/mintupdates and use the mintupdate-cli program which runs independent of the Update Manager GUI window. That is, errors during the automatic upgrade are not shown in Update Manager GUI window and errors in Update Manager GUI window or status icon ...

Re: Need 48 serial ports (USB connection)

There are 2 kernel compilation parameters that control this. CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_NR_UARTS sets the maximum supported UARTS and CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_RUNTIME_UARTS sets how many to create at boot time. CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_RUNTIME_UARTS can't be more than CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_NR_UARTS. On Linux Mint 19 with ...

Re: Opera browser installed, worked fine yesterday, now it won't launch

Try starting it from the terminal to see if any errors are shown there. Don't know the binary name but you can probably just type opera and press tab key to see if it can auto complete it to something longer (like opera-stable).

Re: What is the difference between Applmage, deb and other options?

It's best to install software through Software Manager so you get updates for it. If your program isn't available there, you can go for the options you mentioned or a flatpak or a PPA. .deb files use the same database as Software Manager but don't get updates. Some .deb files will add a repository t...

Nothing stands out as suspect in that; all those repositories work. I don't have an immediate other idea what the cause could be.

Re: File saving dialogue has no path bar. (feature suggestion)

If this is a feature request for the MATE desktop, you'll have to make it to the MATE desktop developers: https://mate-desktop.org/. First search if a similar request has been made already. This forum is for getting and giving support from/to other Linux Mint users.

Re: Is my system good enough for gaming?

I don't know anything about AMD processors of that generation. I guess it depends on which A8 APU you have. Steam games include system requirements for Linux on their page, so check that and compare against your system. The types of games that probably will work are 2D and older 3D games. Newer (3D)...

Re: Mint 19 Leafpad word wrap setting not remembered

Can't reproduce. Just installed leafpad on Linux Mint 19 and toggling word wrap, closing and restart leafpad, it's still what I set it to. It stores its configuration in ~/.config/leafpad/leafpadrc. Perhaps that directory isn't writable for some reason (can happen when you run GUI programs as root w...

It's a job control command. Pauses the running job and returns user to the shell. jobs list all jobs and fg can be used to r...

Re: How to uninstall Opera browser completely?

I've remembered incorrectly. Not clear to me from its manpage but after testing it indeed works as you say. In any case, Opera package is already removed and OP need not do anything further on that end.

Re: How to uninstall Opera browser completely?

Yes. apt-get and apt do the same and account for dependencies. dpkg is a low level tool and does not account for dependencies. You should generally not use dpkg (you could remove something that something else depends on, while apt-get and apt will inform you of that).

Re: best app to search for files by content

I'm not the best to answer this as I just use grep from the terminal (or actually ripgrep, which is 20 times faster). Recoll and Catfish are the obvious ones to try if you need something with a GUI. A look on https://alternativeto.net/ comes up with two other options: DocFetcher and Searchmonkey. Th...
