Re: Where do you put icons and themes in LM

Tried that already. There weren't .icons and .themes in my home directory. When I tried adding them it wouldn't work.

Where do you put icons and themes in LM

I'm using LM 17.3 XFCE. Normally new icons and themes go into the home directory but that doesn't seem to be the case with this distro. Anyone know where I put them so they appear in the "Appearance" window?

Does LM XFCE still have a keyring, wifi passwords problem

I've stayed away from XFCE even though I like it because of that whole missing keyring and wifi passwords problem. Has that ever been fixed?

Re: How do you view video files on a disk

I'm using LM 17.3 Cinnamon. Tried viewing my disks using the file manager and it again tries to play it. Says it's a video file. Don't have this problem with flash drives or when using Windows. Weird.

How do you view video files on a disk

I have many individual video files in different file formats like avi, wmv, mkv etc stored on DVDs. When the icon for the inserted DVD appears on the desktop, LM tries to play it as a single video file rather than just showing me the many files. How would I fix this? Thanks.

Don't understand how screensaver works

I'm using LM 17.3 Cinnamon. How do you remove the screensaver that came with this distro? It clearly doesn't work. My monitor just shuts down within a few minutes. I can install xscreensaver instead.

Linux command to adjust volume

I'm using LM 17.3 Cinnamon. I recall there was a simple command to adjust the volume up or down, rather than using the alsamixer itself. Anyone know it?

Re: What's a good video editor

After trying several of these video editors I've come to the realization they suck. They're either way too complicated or make my system lockup or crash. I just need an editor that allow me to cut out sections of a video file without re-encoding and join them together.

What's a good video editor

I'm using LM 17.2 XFCE. I use the Boilsoft video editor and joiner in Windows which works great for simple programs. Avidemux has a similar GUI but just doesn't work that well. It's always saying the file is missing this or that, then just shows a blue screen. Is there a better easy to use video edi...

Why can't I delete files from a flash drive

I'm using LM 17.2 XFCE. When I try using a flash drive, it'll either show that the content files are locked or it won't let me delete a file. Don't seem to have this problem on other Linux distros. Anyone have a solution?

Screen keeps going dark

I'm using LM 17.1 XFCE. I notice xscreensaver doesn't work at all and the LCD screen goes dark after 10 minutes. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.

Can LM look like the Mac

I remember you could make Ubuntu 10 look like a Mac with the menu bar on top and a docking port on the bottom. Can the same be done today with LM 17?

Re: Why do downloads in LM 17 always fail

I've noticed this problem in the past. I'm a free user downloading from file hosting sites. Once the download fails, they don't let you try again for several hours and you have to go through the whole captcha thing again so download managers wouldn't work. Screensavers or none in Linux seem to cause...

Why do downloads in LM 17 always fail

I'm using LM 17.1 Cinnamon and for some reason everytime I try and download a large file it fails. I've adjusted the Power Management so it doesn't turn off the screen when active. It now just blurs the desktop and shows the time. Why is it doing this? Never have this problem in Windows.

Where's the screensaver in LM 17

I'm running LM 17.1 Cinnamon on a Dell Latitude D630 32-bit laptop. I notice the screen goes dark after about 15 minutes but can't find a screensaver anywhere. Anyone know where it is?

Also is this a LTS version?

Since I'm retired and on a fixed income, I use two free dialup services and would like to continue using them with LM. Just don't know how to go about it. Didn't h...

Re: Can I safely remove pre-installed appz

Just the bigger programs like Libre Office Suite. Will never use it. I wish LM had a good imaging program like RollbackRX in Windows. Sure would be useful.
