Re: Mint 20.2 Beta

No. The beta announcement will include information about where to report issues. Past few releases that has been in a dedicated GitHub project and I assume the same will go for this release. That project isn't open yet. It will open once the beta is official and announced.

Re: OS question

No, Linux Mint doesn't run on computers with a PowerPC processor. It's made for computers with processors from Intel and AMD.

There are several Linux distros that have a PowerPC edition, like Debian, though the number has reduced a lot over the past few years.

Re: Mint 20.2 Beta

I removed the link in above posts; the beta isn't released yet as not all mirrors are synced yet. I understand the curiosity/eagerness to try it :wink: Let's allow the mirrors time to sync the ISOs so that the beta can be released. The beta release will be announced on https://blog.linuxmint.com/. T...

Re: How to use a $sring in sed?

I don't follow. I assume the lines you shared above is the file before modification. Can you show the same lines what they would be after your intended modification? So I can better understand.

Re: Win 10 is EOL Oct. 14th, 2025...LOL.

I don't like the look of the Windows 11 menu and file manager. Almost half the menu filled with "recommendations". Ads will go there I guess. And the file manager's toolbar with a mix of large and small buttons looks cluttered and confusing. But I do like the window snap button: https://cd...

Re: How to use a $sring in sed?

This will do that: sed -r "s|(<name>)(</name>)|\1$TRIPNAME\2|" The \1 and \2 are backreferences to the () captured groups. Double quotes are needed so Bash will replace $TRIPNAME with its value. I use | (pipe character) as separator in the sed substitute command so I don't need to escape t...

Re: Updatemanager not showing Firefox

Ah. Yes.

Member20170324 if you're still using Linux Mint 18.3 note that it reached end of life in April. You'll have to upgrade your Linux Mint to 19.x or 20.x to continue to receive security updates like for Firefox. Linux Mint 19.x are supported till April 2023. Linux Mint 20.x till April 2025.

Re: Updatemanager not showing Firefox

The current version of Firefox on Linux Mint is 8 9 .0+linuxmint1. If you're on 88 and not seeing an update to 89 something is wrong with the repository mirror you've chosen, with your repository configuration (like you disable or deleted Linux Mint repository) or you blacklisted the Firefox package...

Re: Bug in Package

You can't file a bug on Launchpad without an account. Having somebody else report the bug and be the go between you and the maintainer isn't very effective. Just register an account. If you only use it for that, what's the trouble? You're the one using this program so you're the most suited to inter...

Interesting question. I don't normally use Evolution for calendar but added two events and tried to find where Evolution stores them. Looks that the calendar is stored in the file ~/.local/share/evolution/calendar/system/calendar.ics . I planned an event BLUEFOG tomorrow 10am and BROWNBOAR same time...

If it's an actual popup the browser extension PopUpOFF should take care of it. It's available also for Chromium.

Re: Is there a way to find out what is the most commonly appearing word within the file names located in the folder?

Yes but it becomes more error prone if you want to add or remove a character to split on:
ls | sed -r 's/\.[^.]*$//' | tr ' _.-' '\n\n\n\n' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

Re: Is there a way to find out what is the most commonly appearing word within the file names located in the folder?

Slightly more complex: ls | sed -r 's/\.[^.]*$//' | sed -r 's/[ _.-]/\n/g' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n This will only remove the last dot and what follows from each filename and will split each filename on spaces, underscores, dots and hyphens. For some hyphenated words you may want to count them as ...

Re: Is it possible to replace Win10 with Linux mint on MS Surface Go

Before asking for help do a web search to see if you can find the answers yourself. For example searching for "MS Surface Go Linux Mint" finds several recent articles on that. If you get stuck with such you can make a topic here to ask for help with whatever step you're stuck on.

Run this command from the folder where you have the files: ls | cut -d'.' -f1 | tr ' ' $'\n' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n It will list all files, remove the extension, split them into words (split on space character) and then count each word and sort them on that count. If you need to split words on o...

Re: No more satellite view on Gnome Maps 40.1?

The reason is explained in this issue: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-maps/-/issues/381. In short the mapbox tiles for satellite view are too expensive. GNOME Maps doesn't generate any direct income so how should they pay for it.

The following bash script outputs today's Julian date (without year) in a terminal.
Does it? That doesn't sound quite right. The manpage says +j% prints "day of year (001..366)". How is that a Julian date?
