Re: Nemo Actions

Wow! Thanks for sharing this capability! I had no idea this was in mint/nemo. I'm using LMDE3, and after reading through your postings, I was able to setup one very helpful action...and one really (for me) helpful script. The action is basically an image resize using Imagemagick's convert command. T...

Re: mintstick extremly slow

Just to add to this older forum entry...I, too, have begun noticing very slow USB write speeds in LMDE3 when attempting to dd iso images. Most ISO images end at transfer speeds under 1MB/s. It doesn't matter what brand or what size USB I use, or which USB port I use. I can't exactly tell when the pr...

Re: Unable to access the internet after update to LMDE 3

What happens if you temporarily assign static DNS?

Edit /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf and change this line:

Code: Select all

#prepend domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1;
to

Code: Select all

prepend domain-name-servers ip-of-dns-one, ip-of-dns-two;
(where "ip-of-dns-one" and "ip-of-dns-two" are actual DNS IPs)

Save and restart

Re: SOLVED: mintinstall -- strange behaviour?

Lodda,

That's great! Sorry it took me so long to realize that Lilypond was in the backports (been a long time since I installed it, and I forgot about the package lookup command).

Have fun!

Re: SOLVED: mintinstall -- strange behaviour?

Lodda, When I ran sudo apt-cache showpkg lilypond It did end up showing me that I had installed Lilypond via the stretch-backports repository. Be aware that the backports repository can cause unexpected results for software, so if you do enable the backports repository, it might be wise to disable i...

Re: SOLVED: mintinstall -- strange behaviour?

That's odd. Which repositories are you using (Software Sources)? If you already have the normal repositories listed in software sources, perhaps your package cache needs updated:

Code: Select all

sudo apt update

Re: SOLVED: mintinstall -- strange behaviour?

Hi Lodda,

I'm glad you have things working in wine. I'm confused that Lilypond isn't listed for you in package manager. Does it show up in the list when you type

Code: Select all

sudo apt search lilypond
in the terminal?

Re: SOLVED: mintinstall -- strange behaviour?

On a side note, I just did a search in package manager and both Frescobaldi and Ngspice seem to be available from there too (even with the backports repository disabled).

Re: SOLVED: mintinstall -- strange behaviour?

Hi lodda! No, I don't use Wine. I installed Lilypond via Synaptic Package Manager (I can't remember if I had to use the backports repository or not). I'm usually a version or two behind what is available from other distros, but I'm not pushing the envelope in what I do with Lilypond. My use of Lilyp...

Repos / software versions / playing with fire?

So, I'm running into an error using ffmpeg on my newest project, and from what I'm reading, I need to upgrade to 4.x ffmpeg to resolve the problem. However, the repos for LMDE3 (including backports) don't list anything higher than what I'm using (3.3.9). I'm a bit confused by the ffmpeg website, but...

Re: [SOLVED] Beginner GTK questions

Well, I finally figured it out. My confusion ended up being with the g_signal_connect/G_CALLBACK when used in conjunction with "clicked"/button. I didn't realize that the receiving function needed to accept GtkWidget in addition to the GtkEntry. That's where my hold-up was...and why none of my type ...

Re: [SOLVED] Beginner GTK questions

Yeah, I've spent a lot of time on that specific page over the course of the past day and a half. Unfortunately, no matter how I define or cast or reference the widget, I receive type mis-match warnings during compilation, or segment faults during runtime.

I'll keep trying.

Re: [SOLVED] Wayland / Gtk / X / etc.

gm10! You are the best!

I finally was able to see where my hold-up was - and it was definitely due to containers.

Thanks for your detailed explanation, and you were 100% correct...it's super easy.

I'm so sorry it took me this long to figure it out, but thanks for hanging in there with me!

Man...you're nailing it! I changed a couple things pertaining to containers...and results!

So, here's what I had originally: gtk_container_add(GTK_CONTAINER(window), GTK_WIDGET(box)); This r...

Thanks for the breakdown. You're right about me being confused by the stack/stack switcher explanations. (I'm used to "stack" as only referring to memory.) Your suggested example of the "preferences" in Update Manager was perfect! It's exactly what I'm looking to do (see attachment). My "sticky wick...
