Re: ICEAUTHORITY and delete the locked account help

Hello, waunk557. You are quite sure that the error message which you receive about .ICEauthority is not an error which is caused by the fact that your /home filesystem has got no more free space left? Can you login on one of the pseudo console monitors - accessible by pressing <ctrl><alt><f1> ... <c...

Re: Dark (oversaturated) UI elements, except nemo

Hello, pablo89pl. Maybe in your case the changed screen colours are really caused by software. Yet, it might be worth the time to check out with a different monitor. Means attach an external monitor and check whether colours are back to what they were before. It happened here to my external monitor:...

Re: Using wine on dual boot

Hello, bokibo. No, pointing Wine to the Windows partition is not a good idea. Wine has got its own folder structure under $HOME/.wine. Wine has got its own kind of registry under $HOME/.wine. It would not be able to read and use your Windows settings from the Windows registry. You should be glad it ...

Re: PRIME Synchronisation

Re: Linux 18.2 "Sonya" GUI fails

Hello, oligalma.

Could you explain in a bit more details perhaps what your question is?
Do I understand right that the two Linux Mint 18.2 installations no longer exist?

As Dagon explained already in March 2014, 3.5 years ago, before executing the commandline add-apt-repository ppa:nginx/$nginx you have to define the value of the variable $nginx : nginx=stable # use nginx=development for latest development version and only afterwards do add-apt-repository ppa:nginx/...

Hallo, Armageddon0605. Meine erste Frage wäre eher: wie genau hast du Pyhton 3.6.3 installiert? Woher stammt es genau? Auf einem funktionierenden Mint 18.1 (das wird unter 18.2 nicht anders sein) müssen unter /usr/bin folgende python Einträge genau so gesetzt sein: $ ls -l /usr/bin/python* lrwxrwxrw...
