Re: prevent language switch in some gui applications

Do you mean you're searching for an option to disable—in certain programs only—the global keyboard shortcut for switching keyboard input method/language? I don't think that's possible. You could change the shortcut key to something else or possibly disable the input method switcher when you don't ne...

I think it depends on your web browser. At least in Firefox if I click on the wrong thing and load a new page I can just click the back button and Firefox will have remembered what I typed here.

Re: Hello! How can I help?

Welcome to the Linux Mint forums. I'd say pick a project that aligns with your programming interests. Cinnamon applets are written in JavaScript, Cinnamon itself in C. The Mint tools (Update Manager, Software Manager, and so on) are written in Python. The Xapps (xed text editor, xviewer image viewer...

When does it ask for the keyring; at login or when starting a specific program (like Google Chrome or Chromium).

Re: xviewer jpeg comment?

From what I read online the comment in a jpg file is stored outside the exif data. Some programs pretend like it is part of the exif data. I think xviewer just shows exif data. Note also that comment is something other than the exif description field. That said, xviewer is not showing me any exif da...

Welcome to the Linux Mint forums. Many of use made the move from Windows to Linux had to figure out what to do with programs that were only available for Windows.

Re: where nemo save folder images prefs in cinnamon?

I tried setting an image as the icon for a directory, then tried to find what file(s) where changed. Doing some digging it seems this may be stored in the binary file ~./local/share/gvfs-metadata/home. At least: - when I delete that directory after copying its files first somewhere else - then logou...

Re: Question about closing the terminal

You can start programs so that they are immune to the terminal closing. Any of these commands as example would do that: (firefox)& firefox & disown setsid firefox These however keep the program attached to the terminal while it is running, so any warnings or errors the program sends to stdout would ...

Open Screensaver from Settings. You have option there to lock the screen when the screensaver becomes active (which by default is after 5 minutes on inactivity).

Re: Best way to auto-run a cmd in term @ root login?

You can probably just put that command in /root/.bashrc file, at the end.

Re: Is there a GUI app that lets me create and verify .par or .par2 files?

It looks like all the front-ends (including yours) have been dead projects for at least 10 years. This one still works: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ekpar2/. Mind that this is also a dead project since mid 2016, though the .deb file still installs and the program started up afterwards. Note that...
