Re: Optimization and performance: Using Linux Mint 19 as a gaming platform

Well in that case I guess using the Nvidia driver options to change it should be enough right? Yes :) And as for other desktop environments perhaps it would have some usefulness. Not unless the user changes their window manager to Compiz. In any case, don't make people install it if they following ...

Re: BIOS/UEFI Date/UTC time setting

If the BIOS forgets settings after powering down the computer, you should replace the CMOS battery on the motherboard. It's usually located somewhere in between or to the side of the expansion slots. Commonly a flat battery about the size of a coin.

Re: Optimization and performance: Using Linux Mint 19 as a gaming platform

Sure, but Cinnamon uses Muffin as window manager and doesn't switch to use Compiz window manager just because you install the Compiz settings manager. You can run that settings manager but anything you change in there affects only Compiz, not Muffin.

Re: Nerdy types dismissing Linux Mint.

I don't need to use a complicated operating system to prove I'm suprerior to anyone else or to act like I know more about the computers subject than another person who might know far more about another subject than I do.

Re: gnustep folder permanently delete

One final command to delete the configuration directory it apparently didn't want to remove:
sudo rm -rf /etc/GNUstep/

The other errors looks harmless.

Re: gnustep folder permanently delete

It appears nothing currently installed needs these libraries. You can go ahead and remove them. You do that with this command:
sudo apt-get purge gnustep*

Re: gnustep folder permanently delete

These are just libraries and likely were installed for a program that uses them. Easiest way to see which is by simulating removal of these libraries; any programs that depend on them would be removed as well. It's just a simulation, it won't actually do anything — just lets you know what it would d...

Re: gnustep folder permanently delete

I assume it's being created by a GNUstep program you're using. Could that be the case? Try searching in Synaptic whether you have any gnustep packages installed, or from the terminal with command:
dpkg -l | grep gnustep

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

People have a hard time staying on topic about LMDE in this topic. I can understand some feel the wait has been (too) long but, respectfully, if you must discuss other distros please do that in the Chat about Linux forum — not in the LMDE support forum.

Re: How Is The Mint ISO Created?

I haven't the foggiest. You seem to know more about building ISOs than I do :) I just know that it's not as Linux Mint started out 12 years ago taking the Ubuntu ISO and respinning it. The ISO is built from the ground up; it's not a respin of another ISO. Packages from the Linux Mint repository (htt...

Re: icons on a bottom panel

I added the Panel Launchers applet to a panel on the second screen (on virtual box; I don't have multiple screens). Indeed, clicking in your menu to add a launcher to the panel adds it to the one on the primary monitor. On Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon I can however right-click the panel launcher on the se...

In a different order, no longer aligned to a vertical grid, or not using the entire height of the screen? Desktop icon layout has been improved in Linux Mint 1...

Re: Desktop Icons - Align To Grid Mode - Possible Bug

Not an issue on Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon. Suggest again you should consider upgrading.

Arranging by grid and then snapping to grid was added to, or improved in, Nemo iteratively over the past few releases.

You can use the code tags for this. Click the icon in the toolbar when writing a post here to insert the code tags in your post. Then paste your terminal output between the tags.

The ISOs are built from scratch. The ISO maintainer does this but if he uses any scripts for it, I don't know that these are public.
