Re: software sources "repository is not signed" fails..

Linux Mint Beta has been in daily use here since its release without any major problems, the few minor ones were easy to fix. Difficulties with the repositories arose only this afternoon but reverting to the default mirrors restored proper functioning. The Ubuntu repository does not seem to be affec...

Re: Highlighting text in LibreOffice Writer

LibreOffice Writer has a highlighter on its toolbar that gives you a choice of 120 colours in standard mode and can be expanded even further.

Check by a click on "View" and then "Toolbars" that "Formatting" is ticked.

Re: Linux Mint 18 Cin does not see SSD with Win 10

If GRUB does not see the Windows loader then your installation was not successful even though you stated in your first post that dual-boot works. When Windows is already installed, a subsequent Linux installation will question via a small programme called os-prober (operating system prober) if any o...

Re: Inserting Unicode glyphs on Mint 19 beta Not Solved

I have just used a fresh live medium with Linux Mint 19 to test Unicode functioning and it all works fine. If you prefer to use the Compose Key to insert diacritics like the Caron then use this sequence: Compose Key - c - s Did you verify your download of Linux Mint 19 using the usual integrity and ...

By the way, if you want to reverse the hibernation option just use powercfg -h on I am at a loss to understand what you mean by "OS c". Perhaps you could provide more details. Did you install using UEFI ? Is there a pre-installed UEFI partition ? I had assumed that Linux Mint was unable to see the W...

Re: Linux Mint 18 Cin does not see SSD with Win 10

Win 10, when you reboot to go into Linux Mint, does not shut down entirely but goes into hibernation and retains the mount point for its own use. The rationale here is that Win 10 will start quicker the next time around. The remedy is to turn OFF hibernation in Win 10. Right click on the Start butto...

The unicode sequences for Š and š are Shift+Ctrl followed by u0160 and u0161 respectively.

Re: Inserting Unicode glyphs on Mint 19 beta

Holding down Ctrl+Shift followed by typing u1f609 produces 😉 when Ctrl+Shift are released. No need to press Space.
Ctrl+Shift plus u&#128521 cannot be accomplished as far as I can see since & and # require the shift key which is in use.

Re: Router keeps asking for authorization?

You have obviously provided the wrong password to your router and it is giving you the opportunity to provide the correct one.

Re: Running low on root disk space

Reboot your system with the gparted-live CD. 3. Shrink your "/home" partition to shift it to the right. This will take some time so...

Re: How to set scroll distance of the mouse?

The distance that I can scroll is determined by the force applied to move the scroll wheel (Logitech mouse) when it is unlocked (it has a lock button to afford scrolling control). Alternatively I can use the "Page Up" or "Page Down" keys on my keyboard. The Up/Down arrows will also scroll. Placing t...

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 text instead of Mint logo

If you subsequently install one of the proprietary graphics drivers, the boot logo may disappear and substitute text and dots. As already stated, this does not affect th...
