Re: LM20 and Cherrytree - dependency errors

Don't see it mentioned anywhere, but as of October the LM20-compatible Cherrytree v. 0.99x .deb package has been upgraded from beta to the stable version. PPA is: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:giuspen/ppa .deb for LM20. Important: read the Changelog and comments for this new 0.99.x regarding earlier v...

Re: Alternative to Chromium?

Had the same problem after using Chromium for years. Using Firefox as default for "real me" interaction, I silo Google Account services under a nonsense Gmail address, and related tech site logins, in a secondary browser. My basic criteria are full featured and reliable site rendering, and cross pla...

Sorry, misunderstood. I don't use GWL in the panel, not sure if XFCE has it.

Re: RawTherapee build

You might have a reason for installing that way. I've always used the dhor/myway PPA. It behaves normally and version updates appear in the Update Manager: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dhor/myway sudo apt update sudo apt install rawtherapee (The PPA provides a lot of other good photo software, includ...

Re: Which Linux things do I really have to learn?

Takes the cake as the most incoherent question I've ever seen, here or possibly anywhere (even after being moderted for more clarity.)

Re: What Cloud Drive will sync to a Linux Mint machine?

I'm currently using Mega storage for local storage sync between Mint, Windows 7 and Android platforms. Mega has a fine Mint/Ubuntu desktop client resembling the Dropbox client. It offers 50GB of free, encrypted online storage with up/down speeds comparable to the well-known sync services, and handle...

Re: Are flatpaks typically HUGE?

I've avoided Flatpaks (and disabled the background startup) because the installs are too large to pretest on persistent live USBs before committing to them on a regular install, but I have been curious whether the giant 2GB of whatnot for a few megabytes of functional software is a one-time thing or...

Re: Does Dual Boot with Windows have all these problems? (with Youtube links)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JeP5wGd6wk I thought about dual boot then found out this video. Sound like very bad. I am having Windows 10 in multiple computers and I don't need a pure LInux Mint machine. Install full Linux Mint in an USB stick is a good idea for my case? I've always advised ever...

Re: High CPU usgae

I happened to be running LM20 Cinnamon on a pendrive to pretest something, and found one core of the processor maxxing out persistently. (I use the Multi-core System panel applet for display.) Going into Session and Startup / Application Autostart and disabling useless stuff eliminated it - obviousl...

Re: Trying to network two computers

I also dual boot (Win 7 and now LM20 XFCE) on two PCs with one all-Mint laptop. I gave up years ago trying to use Samba. For a decade I simply used a Dropbox and recently a MegaSync storage desktop clients, which work across both platforms seamlessly and automatically result in cloud storage, too. T...

Re: XnViewMP - segmentation fault in LM20 Cinnamon

I've just downloaded 0.96.5 and it appears to run ok for me so far on LM 20 MATE. Thanks. Adds some comfort to giving it a shot at updating the older version, that I've invested time into setting up. [Update] It installed over the top of the older version, preserving the settings and seems running ...

Re: XnViewMP - segmentation fault in LM20 Cinnamon

Xnview 0.94.3 also works. Thanks. Big help. Update: Latest report at the XnView User Forum is that the new (30 June) 0.96.4 is still failing on Mint 20 Cinnamon. Following up earlier, there is now a stable version 0.96.5 with a 64 bit .deb - any experiences with it on LM20? https://www.xnview.com/e...

Re: Warpinator can only see the other PC if running from live media

That's a new one on me. Can't help. Personally try to avoid tweaks on regular Mint installs that I can't pretest successfully on a thumb drive install first. I've stayed away from Flatpak and Snap so far, requiring (hopefully temporary) workarounds on LM20/Ubuntu 20.04 for Cherrytree and XnViewMP vi...

Re: Removing Linux MInt from dual boot system

People do things differently, but on your screen shot I read that out of about 230GB of drive space, 75GB is formatted to Windows NTFS and over 150GB for Linux as ext 4 disk format. You apparently have converted that 150 of Linux to Free Space, but what does Windows tell you is the total file apace ...

Re: Removing Linux MInt from dual boot system

Extending Windows into Free Space might fail becasue Free Space might be in the very different Linus disk format , which Windows doesn't recognize, I have to guess Unallocated Space gets reformatted consistent with the rest of Windows partition. Extending Winows simply recovers the space removed fro...

Re: Removing Linux MInt from dual boot system

Thank you. It looked a very clear and simple solution. After checking all data etc. I moved to Win7, identified the 75GB NTFS as Windows, right clicked on the 153GB Linux partition and clicked 'Delete Volume'. This produced the green box of free space so I clicked on 'Delete Volume' again. This pro...

Re: Warpinator can only see the other PC if running from live media

This is in the "any" hints category since I'm new to Warpinator. You may get much better suggestions from somebody more knowledgeable. First, since live media are working, you don't mention if you did the same updating of Warpinator to the current version, and then used the same python3-packaging fi...
