Re: Boot partition full

Hello, hines. Correct. Only kernels, which are labelled as "installed", are present on your disk and occupy disk space. There is one exception: the kernel, which is labelled as "active", is installed and currently in use. It also occupies disk space. Because it is currently in use, it cannot be unin...

Re: linux mint 20, Firefox 78 and broken add search engine

Hi, folks. I cannot confirm that Firefox 78.0.1 provided by Linux Mint does not permit to add additional search engines. Means that I can confirm that adding additional search engines on Fireofx 78.0.1 may work. At least here on LM 19.3 with Firefox 78.0.1 (78.0.1+linuxmint1+tricia), I succeeded in ...

Re: linux mint 20, Firefox 78 and broken add search engine

Hi, folks. Can anyone else confirm that Firefox 78.0.1, installed from the Mint repos, really does not fix the bug, which Mozilla has fixed in FF 78.0.1? I mean I know that some users might consider the precise steps to add a search engine on Firefox a bit convoluted and unintuitive. So I am not sur...

Re: Wallpaper background

  1. ) http://packages.linuxmint.com/list.php?release=Ulyana - Look for packages named like "Mint-backgrounds-*".
  2. ) Also I know that less than a day ago I read a post telling that the wallpapers of previous Mint releases were available on LM 20 for installation. (LM 13 to LM 19)

No, MurphCID, is not late. It all depends on the timezone, which you live in at the moment.

Hello, surfdoc37. You still need help installing a Citrix ICAclient, I assume?! Telling from my own experience, the ICAclient 13.10 should work without problems on Mint 19.x.

Re: [BUG] Can't add search engines in FF 78

Hi, guys.

The bug-fixed Firefox version 78.0.1 is available for Linux Mint as well. In fact Update Manager should offer it to you for installation, unless you have already done so. Cf. here, please: Re: linux mint 20, Firefox 78 and broken add search engine.

Re: linux mint 20, Firefox 78 and broken add search engine

Confirmed. The Linux Mint software repos for LM 18.x , 19.x and 20.x , all hold the Firefox 78.0.1 software packages by now. So Update Manager should offer the update to Firefox 78.0.1 really soon. In case it does not, try the [Refresh] button in order to make it look for available updates immediate...

Re: Mint 20 Cinnamon 64bit low boot space warning after updates but np

Hi, 321Blast off! The space, which is needed on the filesystem /boot , depends on the number of kernel versions, which are kept on the filesystem /boot.
