Re: Odd font error in one app

Timeshift is not an option. I don't do a dist upgrade. My /home directory is in another partition so I do a full install with wipe on the / partition. The next time I do this, I'm going to move the entire /home to another location and do a full wipe/reinstall then move things back but that doesn't h...

Re: Mint-Y-Dark cursor color change?

Ignore my last reply. Adwaita and DMZ-White both work perfectly. Thank you. I would never have thought that the pointer would have affected the text cursor.

You realize I'm talking about the text cursor, not the mouse pointer, right?

Re: Mint-Y-Dark cursor color change?

In this screenshot, I am renaming a file. The cursor is between the a and o in cao. I would like to make the cursor black.

Mint-Y-Dark cursor color change?

Hi all,
I am using the Mint-Y-Dark theme on my laptop and when I'm in Caja and want to rename a file, the text cursor is so light in colour that it is almost impossible to see. How can I change the colour of the cursor?
Thanks!

Re: 19.3 XFCE broken after suspend. How to fix?

Unfortunately, timeshift was not yet setup. The install was only a day old. It is possible for me to do a full reinstall without losing much but I'd rather fix it. :(

python-espeak dependancy?

Hi all,
After updating to Linux Mint 20 Mate, I have an installation deb that I cannot install because it has an unmeetable dependency on python-espeak>=0.3. Python3-espeak 0.5-2build1 is available in the channel but doesn't seem to trigger as the dependency. How can I solve this?
Thanks!

As a follow-up, in order to get the scripts working, you need to change the script files to work with Linux mint as documented here Basically you change the #!/bin/sh to #!/bin/bash in all the scripts

Hi all, I've been noticing lately that the login manager occasionally doesn't show up. Rather than the nice photo background I'm used to, I instead get the black screen with a little login window. Everything still works fine, but I thought I'd post it here to see if anyone knows what the trouble is....
