Re: Uninstall Thunderbird?

Just to note that I removed 5 Thunderbird packages from Mint 18.2 and it didn't remove meta packages.

Re: It's a pity Icecat browser is not in the repository

Not correct. Installing like that invokes the error:
iceweasel:
Depends: libhunspell-1.3-0 (>=1.3.3) but 1.3.2-6ubuntu2 is to be installed
Depends: libstdc++6 (>=4.9) but 4.8.4-2ubuntu1~14.04 is to be installed

So, I agree Mint should have IceWeasel alongside Firefox.

Re: Cinnamon 2D and remote session with X2GO

I would say the same problem remains with the current Mint 17.1. and X2GO 4.0.3.2. It's important because there's general problem with RDP to Cinnamon. Furter info: X2GO's Desktop Environment Compatibility shows it doesn't support Cinnamon either: http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/doc:de-compat Bug: htt...

Re: Cinnamon doesn't work with remote sessions (XRDP)

I tried X11rdp-o-matic.sh in Mint 17 Cinnamon. First time packages were compiled but not installed, but second time they installed. XFCE and LXDE fork fine and RDPsesconfig.sh can choose between them. Gnome Classic and MATE don't (just a blank screen). I also tried X11rdp-o-matic.sh --justdoit in fr...

Re: Mint16 XFCE + XRDP trashes desktop settings

I'd also ask: is this xrdp or Mint problem? XRDP to XFCE works otherwise fine.

On some friends' older computers, I do the same, but tell them to use LXDE only (because it's faster). So, is Mint Cinnamon (15 or 16, doesn't ma...
