Re: Trouble with an AppImage program

I am running 64-bit LM-Mate and the ia32-libs are installed - every 32-bit AppImage I have tried exits with an error. e.g. ./etcher-1.1.2-i386.AppImage: error while loading shared libraries: libfuse.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory While ia32-libs covers the most freq...

Re: firefox 57 font settings for mint

I go to 'preferences' >> language and appearance >> fonts & colors but ... I can't find the 'bold' option! That sets default fonts for websites, if the website itself doesn't set a font. It doesn't affect your browser menu. You would have to try the font settings for system-wide, but that will ...

Re: Maintaining file dates

Linux doesn't use file creation dates (currently). It uses: access - last time the file was accessed (read) modify - last time file contents was modified change - last time file status was changed The file creation date of your photos is stored in the photos themselves as metadata. If you use a phot...

Re: Trouble with an AppImage program

When you reinstall to the 64-bit version of Linux Mint you will need to use the 64-bit AppImage. That would make sense, but you can run 32 bit software on a 64 bit Linux Mint installation just fine (you may need to install ia32-libs first, which adds libraries 32 bit programs need to run). The othe...

Re: To start a mint local community, Do I have to be an expert?

You can take inspiration from other local communities: https://linuxmint.com/links.php. You'll find blogs, forums, mailinglists and IRC channels and more. Some have just a forum, others have gone all out. Just start with something you feel comfortable with and take it from there. If there is some ac...

Re: I want to so bad switch to Linux but I feel like I can't right now. I hope I'm wrong.

I hope one day I can just start up Wine and it can run all of my programs without any issues and it will run at native speeds. This statement summarizes why you should probably just stay on Windows. As long as your ideal for Linux is to be able to use it to run Windows programs, you're better of ju...

Re: Trouble with an AppImage program

What is the program you're trying to use and from where did you download it? Perhaps we can give better advice if we can try it on our own.

BTW, I've split this discussion from the tutorial.

Re: Chrome - Graphical Artifacts

Try disabling hardware acceleration. Go to Settings in Chrome and from there at the bottom click Advanced and scroll down to the System category. There you can disable hardware acceleration. Probably need to restart Chrome to activate. See if this works better.

Re: How to export passwords from FireFox57?

Well, you got yourself in a bit of a bind there. Firefox' password manager is a bit rubbish. Indeed, you can't export passwords stored in Firefox. You can copy them to another Firefox, but you can't export them. There was an extension https://addons.mozilla.org/nl/firefox/addon/password-exporter/ th...

Re: noatime where EXACTLY ??

noatime I want to avoid unnecessary wear and tear on the SSD Then there is no point to using noatime. It doesn't reduce the amount of SSD writes. Any article you've read that says otherwise is using 10 year old information. Linux by default always uses relatime. With relatime, last accessed time is...

Re: What you'll do when Firefox drops support for XUL addons?

Could be hardware acceleration is disabled. I think it is less stable and thus not enabled by default. You could try it. Check in about:config if layers.acceleration.force-enabled is set to true.

If we create a new user in Mint and log onto it, will FF57 install for just that the new user, for checking/testing it out, so the old FF can still be used in our normal user account? Download the firefox-57.0.tar.bz2 archive from the Mozilla website, unpack it to the new user's home directory (not...

Re: Firefox 57...Quantum

Firefox 57.0 is in the Linux Mint repositories currently. If you don't have the upgrade yet, it should come shortly (you likely are using a mirror server and it can take a few hours for all the mirror servers to be in sync). I don't like it. I've lost half of my extensions For anybody not yet upgrad...

Thanks! That did it, after also deleting that directory and cleaning history completely once. On a happy note, the problem I noted with it being less clear for some websites when their pages were completely loaded was due to a problem in one of my extensions' data set.
