Change color of active window in taskbar

I am currently using Mate 18.3 and would like to know how to change the color of the active window in the taskbar. As you can see in the attachment, my active window will appear bright green. I'd like to know how to change this color to something else. Even further, are there any other attributes th...

Re: Kiosk Mode or something similar

Not quite what you ask, but perhaps this can be of some help: https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/hacks-mint.html#ID1 (item 1) I appreciate the response. Not exactly what I am going for though. We only want the screen to act as a digital button. The only thing showing on the screen would in...

Kiosk Mode or something similar

A couple of friends and I have been working on a project that we'd like to incorporate a tablet device. We want the tablet to be locked down to a specific application that we have created. I understand that there are some proprietary options out there. There also seem to be some open source options ...

Re: Can't install java jre in linuxmint

Have you tried running 'sudo apt update' instead? If not, try it and then see what happens again. It looks like it is returning a broken link and you just have your system looking for what you need in an old link. Hopefully the update command gives you more recent links to look at for what you need.

And you are getting that same error even after trying what the last line of that error message is asking you to do?

Re: Git resources

Thanks, rene!

I am 49 pages into Pro Git and already feel like I understand more in the few hours of reading this than when I was spending many more hours trying to push through it with Eclipse. I can tell that this is going to be a very nice resource. Thank you again!

Git resources

I was recently learning to use Git while working on a project with Eclipse but it was becoming a frustrating process. It came to a point where I thought I should probably learn the fundamentals first and do it through the command line before trying to use a GUI. What are some of your favorite resour...

Re: What IDE do you use/recommend?

If you are new to programming then I would not worry so much about the IDE beyond using one that compiles your program and runs. I started by using Geany, which you can easily get on Mint by going to the Software Managers, and using it without the add-ons. It will highlight key words and such and th...

Re: How many are 100% Linux here?

I am getting closer to 100%. I dual boot to get into Windows 10 when I want to mix tracks with my Pioneer DJ controller using Serato. If anyone knows how to get this software to run on Mint, I am all ears. There is also the occasional need for Windows when one of the classes I am taking requires me ...

I just installed MX Linux on a Thinkpad T43 and it runs pretty well. I think the T43 is from around 2004.

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

I was just listening to a podcast by Michio Kaku the other day where these very questions came up. I believe it centered around what would happen if the sun just vanished and how long it would take for the Earth to be flung into space off of its orbital path. If I remember correctly, he said no one ...

Re: On vs, off - Power

Are you wondering if the hardware will wear down over time and/or stop functioning altogether by the computer being periodically turned on/off versus kept running all day?

Re: Problems installing Unreal Tournament 99 (Native)

Just my luck; the cd is too scratched and installation stopped at one of the files that couldn't be read. At least I know that your directions appear to work though, so thank you! Hopefully I can either get a new copy for cheap somewhere or get this disc cleaned up somehow.
