Re: unable to apply advance xscreenserver templates

Hello, falciloid. As I understand, the xscreensaver integration for the cinnamon-screensaver has been removed from the most recent Cinnamon versions 4.0.x. At least, in the announcement of Linux Mint 19.1 (Ubuntu based), the removal of xscreensaver from Cinnamon had been announced as an improvement....

Re: Internet Browsers won't connect to Internet anymore.

Hello, MauveKat. Everything was working fine and suddenly my two browsers stopped connecting to the Internet. Could you explain a bit more precisely perhaps what happens when you launch e.g. Firefox and try to open the webpage www.google.com? Do you receive some kind of error message? If so, which o...

Re: Nagging for installation of the same thing every day.

Hello, premier69. Thank you for sharing all the details, which you shared. :) Comment in advance: I was amazed that the Vulcan mesa driver, which made you start this thread, is not mentioned by apt list --upgradable at all. I wonder a bit whether the reason, why it is not mentioned, is that it seems...

Re: Internet Browsers won't connect to Internet anymore.

Hello, MauveKat. Can't remember now. This was almost a month ago and I used the Update icon on the bottles right to update a bunch of things. You may not remember. - I would not remember, either, after a month. - But the system has got a very good memory of what it did in the past, even a month ago....

Re: Nagging for installation of the same thing every day.

Hello, premier69. One potential reason why for a software package updates are offered in daily intervals would be that you have enabled a PPA which offers (nightly) builds of your mesa driver. In order to find out why Vulcan mesa drivers keep on being offered for updating continuously or at least in...

Re: Mac OS in linux mint

<moderator on>
If it can be done on Ubuntu, then it can be done on Linux Mint, Ubuntu based main edition, as well.
Because doing so breaks the MacOS enduser license agreement, we will not discuss in this forum how it can be done.
Closing this thread as a consequence.

Re: Update wiped out my graphics

Hello, bluredgreen. It is a fact that the proprietary AMD driver fglrx was kast supported and maintained by AMD for Ubuntu 14.04 / Mint 17.x. To be precise, AMD has never bothered to make the proprietary driver fglrx co-operate with the kernel series 4.4.0-xx or newer. This is why on Mint 19.x you m...

Hi, Marty. In case you had Firefox loaded, while you uninstalled mint-flashplugin and installed adobe-flashplugin instead, in this case you have to terminate Firefox and then relaunch it. The next step would be the step of checking which Flash player plugin your Firefox browser uses, cf. near the to...
