Re: How do I install Libre Office 6.1?

Have you considered the AppImage? I started using the Basic+Help AppImage on Friday, and it has not given me any problems. The file is LibreOffice-6.1.0.help-x86_64.AppImage, and you can download it from https://libreoffice.soluzioniopen.com/index.php/stable-2/ . Download, make executable, run. I'm...

Any help to get LibreOffice working in my Mint 19.0 Cinnamon is more then welcome
Thanks in advance
Make sure libreoffice isn't running. Then rename ~/.config/libreoffice to anything else and start libreoffice. If it works, it's possible something got corrupted in ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user.

Re: What is cmd to have Firefox open maximized?

Yes, I'm at the point of uninstalling it and reinstalling it. It's a shame there is no command to put into the Properties window to open it maximized every time like there is in Windows. "uninstalling it and reinstalling it" won't affect the contents of ~/.mozilla. You may want to look at support.m...

Re: What is cmd to have Firefox open maximized?

@RamBurner, it's highly likely that your window manager will allow you to specify that a certain application, in this case Firefox, opens maximized each time (flemur's suggestion).

Or, try a new profile (gm10's suggestion).

Re: I am seeing a lot of updates

As gm10 wrote, they're mostly bug fixes. Look at https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/bionic-changes/2018-July/date.html (or whichever month you're in) for clues. Also, there are changelogs that may have information. You could poke around in http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/changelogs/pool/ to find, for ex...

Re: Kernel 4.15.0-24 won't boot passed grub - Mint 19 Mate

The official kernels that you get via the Update Manager are generally safe, this -24 situation is an exception, made worse by the fact that many mirrors are apparently super slow to update their repositories - that kernel was removed by Ubuntu nearly a week ago now. While I haven't yet had problem...

I very much doubt you can have one command that deals with closing tabs as well as with closing normal windows and tabs in applications.

@MSNBC, @Marziano, @thx-1138, the Ask Ubuntu question in post #5 now has an answer (https://askubuntu.com/a/1048975) indicating that a snap for pdftk is available. I don't use snaps or flatpaks (or pdftk) myself but just thought I mention it :)

Re: DE or Distro with REAL scrollbars

I get the impression that the length of the jump is not random, but related to how far below or above the slider I clicked. Anyway, I never use scroll bars by clicking near them... I had no idea you could even do that. I grab them and move them. If I want to jump one page up or down, I use the page...

It might be easier if you mention the program's name. Or is it the case for all programs? Have you checked permissions?

That's great. I'm sure you're perfectly happy. So let others be happy too with their choices :D

Re: Migrate to Kubuntu 18.04

I would be very careful with copying over hidden files/folders in your home folder from and older system to newer one. There maybe incompatibilities arising from changes in the software that generates these hidden files/folders.
