Re: Bluetooth poll, do you have bluetooth working Yes/No

After installing Mint 19 Mate Had to install the proprietary Broadcom driver for WiFi which also provides Bluetooth. WiFi then worked but Bluetooth did not . Ended up doing the following to make Bluetooth work: wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/olqnqevf698lddo/fw-0a5c_216d.hcd sudo cp fw-0a5c_216d.hcd ...

Re: [SOLVED]character palette unreadable

Looking at /usr/share/themes/Mint-X/ there are folders for gtk-2.0, gtk-3.0, and metacity-1. As gtk2, gtk3, and metacity are installed, how do we confirm which is being used by the Mint-X theme? By the way, we found the Raleigh theme to display the characters without changing the background to black...

Re: character palette unreadable

Thanks, but I gave up on github trying to find how to report a bug. We'll wait to see if Mint19 fixes the problem. We did file a bug report on launchpad: [Bug 1765265] [NEW] mate-applets - character palette black background makes characters unreadable Public bug reported: Added the character palette...

Re: character palette unreadable

Thank you for confirming this to be a problem not of our own making. We've tried for several weeks now, with no success, to find where this problem should be reported. As best we can determine, 'character palette' is contained in 'mate-applets' and on another computer still running Mint 17.3 Rosa wi...

Re: character palette unreadable

Yes, 'Character Map' works properly in Mate also. I believe 'Character Palette' is a component of 'Mate-Applets', and we're not using 'Cinnamon Desktop" on any of our computers. Perhaps there's another site we should be asking this question? We've tried Ubuntu and GitHub and were told to report it t...

Re: character palette unreadable

I'm still curious to know if this problem is common to all Mint Mate 18.3 users.
Could someone else add the character palette to their panel temporarily and see if it produces the same results?

Re: character palette unreadable

What we did (4 different computers) Right clicked and selected 'add to panel', clicked on 'Character Palette', then 'Add' button. A down arrow appeared on the panel. Clicking on the down arrow produced a list of character choices, selected one at random. The panel then displayed the characters selec...

Re: Desktop goes black

We experienced the same problem, and noticed that when pointing to the solid colour background it says "No Desktop Background" and we could find no indication that selecting it and assigning a colour resulted in making a configuration change. The solution, or perhaps more appropriately called work a...

Re: character palette unreadable

Perhaps someone might add the character palette to a panel and confirm what we're experiencing to be a bug?
It's easy to just remove it from the panel afterwards.

[SOLVED]character palette unreadable

Added the character palette to the panel on Mint 18.3 sylvia Mate.
When I click on it to display the characters, they are shown on a black background making them unreadable. The characters remain displayed on a black bar until I reboot.
How can I change the background color?

Open windows at user defined location on the Desktop

It seems that I am only provided a choice of opening windows at the left side or the center of the screen.
Is there a way to force windows, or individual windows, such as the home folder to open somewhere else on the Desktop?

Re: Live Session User - su password?

Demonstrating the live copy for a friend, when the screen saver activates it requests a password . Is there one which works or must you reboot?
A blank password, or any variation of mint/Mint/MINT does not work.
