Re: Preparing for Mint to drop the KDE distro

KDE5 is not usable anyway. The KDE dev team also very stubborn. So I think this decision is unfortunate but wise. Now I just move to the Cinnamon DE. Though it looks primitive, but at least mostly usable. I also checked out ubuntu unity. It is quite nice but requires too much resource.

Re: git gui pwd window can not show up

more serious problem is the konsole window will loose the keyboard input signal, even close git-gui the konsole window cannot receive any input any more.

git gui pwd window can not show up

When the repo require pwd, git gui does not show the pwd request window, therefore cannot input pwd. Any solution?

Re: KDE5 is still disaster

even `ls` is 50 times slower than KDE4. This might be the baloo, but ls took 1 mins to show 1 line result is too much.

Re: ibus on KDE login - IME Input Method Editor

simple answer: please avoid KDE + ibus in this case. They just do not want to work together. They have very long conflict history. There is always something broken when you try to use ibus in KDE. Please use FCITX, which works nicely in KDE and that is why this project is still active for so long ti...

Re: Plasmashell high CPU bug #356479

Simple answer: KDE5 has been released when it is still in alpha-test state :p Simple solution: Avoid KDE5 longer version: 2) I'm copying a file. That's it. Did you try to turn off the animation at all? I never use desktop effect at all, doubt many people use it either. This may be a GL related probl...

The process for the file protocol died unexpectedly.

On Mint18 KDE live CD.
when right-click menu -> `open dolphin as root`. I usually get an error message that says "The process for the file protocol died unexpectedly."

Re: How best to copy 17.1's home folder into a new 17.3?

No need to copy at all. The easiest way, you need to create a user with same previous user ID. Then just link the /home/userID to your old home folder. If you have to create a different userID with whatever reason, you just chown to change the ownership of the old home folder.

Re: Linux Mint 18 KDE to use what version of KDE?

KDE5 and plasma5 is real disaster! Please DONOT include this. If the KDE5 is the only maintained version I'll have to consider leaving KDE. I've been using KDE since 90's. I had never seen such disappointed `upgrade`like this.

Well, I did a simple test in VM. The `fresh upgrade` seems do not preserve any system settings. Things as :i386 packages are not installed.

Re: does fresh upgrade preserve system settings?

Even if you succeed (not by any means a certainty), if/when you have issues in the future, how will you know that they weren't caused by this non-recommended upgrade path? I have had the best luck - and the least stress - by copying everything I want to preserve, and spending an evening writing (in...

do you have a separate /home partition - or not?. if so - use the installer to erase the / root partition, whilst preserving /home < NOFormat > - otherwise, you will have to perform a clean installation - after you BackUp - that is . ..

Re: does fresh upgrade preserve system settings?

The step from LM 13 to LM 17.x is a rather big step. This means, that regarding your system and system settings you have no reliable alternative than reinstalling. What you have at now as additional software may or may not work on LM 17. The only way to find it out is to install LM 17.1 as a second...
