Re: How to type Unicode in Mint 18.1 MATE

I know it should work in GTK+ apps, don't know about other toolkits.

Re: Printer driver needs old library

That's what I saw at that page - I didn't actually try to install it; it might be that there's something more hidden :)

To play it safe, I would try it first in some local system, maybe even a VM.

You can get the package from Wheezy:

It will require one more old lib:

Re: 17.3 Mate Menu Tray And Desktop Icons Not Loading After Fresh Install And Updates

So I used the sudo adduser test command to create a user named test. Then used ctrl+alt+F2 for command prompt and logged into the user account of test. Used startx command for gui. ctrl+alt+T for terminal and retried everything offered in this topic top to bottom and pretty much the same results, e...

Re: 17.3 Mate Menu Tray And Desktop Icons Not Loading After Fresh Install And Updates

Weird...
One more thing I would try is to create a new user, then log in as that user from the login screen, and check if the caja and panel problems happen for that user too.

Well, at least it doesn't segfault as root :)
Doesn't it show any windows?

Re: 17.3 Mate Menu Tray And Desktop Icons Not Loading After Fresh Install And Updates

It's ok, the command to set gsettings keys has no output if it completes successfully.

Not sure why caja-file-management-properties still tries to init the disabled extensions.
Does caja itself start, or also segfaults?

Re: 17.3 Mate Menu Tray And Desktop Icons Not Loading After Fresh Install And Updates

Ok, let's try disabling all the installed extensions via command line tool: gsettings set org.mate.caja.extensions disabled-extensions "['libatril-properties-page', 'libcaja-engrampa', 'libcaja-gksu', 'libcaja-open-terminal', 'libcaja-python']" Then check if caja-file-management-properties...

Re: 17.3 Mate Menu Tray And Desktop Icons Not Loading After Fresh Install And Updates

All looks good, so it's still unknown why Caja keeps crashing... Ok, check if you can launch caja-file-management-properties app. If it runs fine, try disabling various extensions there (in the last tab), and see if Caja still crashes without them. Since Caja isn't running (after killall -9), it can...

Re: 17.3 Mate Menu Tray And Desktop Icons Not Loading After Fresh Install And Updates

Oh right. I didn't think that when Caja doesn't handle the desktop, no right-click menu is available too... Ok, so Marco (window manager) is running, providing you with Ctrl-Alt-T shortcut. That's good. Now you can do some things in the terminal. First, let's assume it's Caja which is constantly cra...

Re: Is Linux Mint using Mir rather than Wayland? I just had a package installed for Mir on Mint Update

GTK+3 package (libgtk-3-0) depends on libmirclient9 because GTK+3 has a Mir backend (in addition to X11, Wayland and some others).
Other packages are pulled in as dependencies of libmirclient9.

Can you check if right-click menu on the desktop works at least? You can run mate-terminal from there.

Re: MATE 1.18 updates

New version of mate-panel should come in soon as well.

Fixed: #305, #504, #572, #586
Not fixed yet: #590. I'll need some more time to work on this. It wasn't as easy as I thought at first.

Re: mate-terminal sometimes crashes with segfault in libgtk-3 when right-clicked

At first I thought it was this bug, which was fixed in mate-terminal 1.18.1.
But I realized you already have that version...

I'm trying to reproduce it in Betsy but no luck yet. I'm running it in a VM, maybe that matters.

Re: Mozo opens in terminal but not by clicking 'Edit Menus'.

Sorry, it was yet another regression in mate-panel 1.18. We have it fixed now in version 1.18.3.
Please wait for Clem to push the update to the repos.

Moreover, I'm FORCED to stay with LM 13 because my old PC (Athlon 64 x2, 2GB RAM) has a crappy Igpu that prevent x-server to start when installing Linux. I've tried many workarounds, but no luck. Today I tried LMDE 2, and no, wont' install because the x-server problem. I don't remember exactly what...
