Re: Nemo: Filter by size ?

That's interesting; I've been using LM since v15 and never noticed that filtering by size isn't possible. I just looked into some distros and software; - LM18 had a "by type" feature (there was a "+" button next to the search box) - Nautilus still has that feature (I know, Nemo is a fork of Nautilus...

Nemo: Filter by size ?

I'm on LM 19.3, Nemo 4.4.2.

Search options don't appear. Is this a bug ? If not, how can I list all files on the hard drive with a size <500mb in Nemo?

Bluetooth icon still blue

After upgrading from 19.2 to 19.3 the Bluetooth and Update Manager icons are still colored. Yet I saw a LM19.3 desktop screenshot where it's black and white. Disabled and enabled the XApp Status Applet but the icons are still big and colored. Current (notice the Bluetooth icon is bigger): https://i....

Re: [Solved] VLC could not decode the format "h264"

Some extra info; I tried to play a downloaded video from within qBittorrent and the error occured again. I closed Vivaldi.

Re: [Solved] VLC could not decode the format "h264"

I don't encounter it always, but rather randomly. Maybe only when I have a Youtube vid playing in the background..?

Re: VLC could not decode the format "h264"

Someone on Reddit wrote : If any Chromium based app is open at the same time when you open VLC , it does that.

Re: VLC could not decode the format "h264"

I also have no issue with VLC. I uninstalled-installed "Media Codecs" and VLC from Software Manger an hour ago, but with no change. A log-off / log-on fixed it.. fow now. It's not exactly a "run once" issue either, because I can play many files one after another. It's rather a random issue. Don't kn...

Re: VLC could not decode the format "h264"

I did that (without rebooting, only a log-off and log-on with new user) and I could play the file with the new user. Then I logged off again and logged on with my user and could also play the file without error. So I don't have to reboot after all, a log-off - log-on solves the problem it seems. But...

Re: VLC could not decode the format "h264"

Yes, but again, the (vidoe) file is not corrupt at all. It plays totally fine after a reboot. Unless you mean another file or files ?

Also, I use LM for years now, and never had such a problem.

So.. it must be something else..!?

Re: VLC could not decode the format "h264"

I said "any video file" so it's not just a specific one. My best guess is it has something to do with the codecs currently loaded and a reboot loads them properly.. ?? Edit: BTW I have sound when playing the file in VLC, but instead of video I get the error message from the title of this post in a p...

VLC and Media Player work fine and play any video on my LM 19.2 installation. Recently VLC started to give this error message "VLC could not decode the format 'h264' " when trying to open any video file (h264 encode in this case). When I try to open the same or any other video file with Media Player...

I installed LM19 a few weeks ago, and I haven't installed any cron job, or configure any software that would utilize rsync. Today I was working on my laptop, and suddenly the system slowed down drastically. So I checked with "top" and saw 2 rsync processes run by root using the cpu heavily for at le...

Re: [SOLVED] Linux Mint: .desktop shortcut not working

Thanks for the tip, I always went the complicated way. With "assign" I mean chown of course (sorry, English is not my primary language). Maybe you've installed a custom java environment, too, things like that. The JDK is also manually copied under /opt. So I had to add PATH="/opt/jdk/bin:$PATH" to ....

Re: Linux Mint: .desktop shortcut not working

Since I'm the only user of this machine I tend to create folders under /opt and assign them to my user. I'm sure the problem doesn't lie there, because I can run the "netbeans" command in terminal and it works just fine. $ ll /opt/netbeans -d drwxr-xr-x 15 myuser myuser 4096 Nov 29 12:15 /opt/netbea...
