Re: UTF-8 fonts not showing

edit: nvm, I saw you cross-posted in the German forum as well and the problem was identified. cross-posting without telling people about it is just wasting everybody's time. please don't do it. I was just going to post here, so please... The issue has been solved: I created a new user and copied th...

Re: xed und caja - kann keine deutschen Buchstaben (äöü) eingeben

Problem erledigt:

Habe neuen User angelegt und folgende Dateien in mein /home/user/.config/qt5ct Verzeichnis kopiert:

qt5ct.conf

Danach neu booten!

Meine qt5ct.conf Datei war zwar vorhanden, aber wohl nicht richtig formatiert bzw. konfiguriert.

Re: xed und caja - kann keine deutschen Buchstaben (äöü) eingeben

Ich glaube, zahlreiche Einstellungen werden in der dconf Datenbank definiert. Vielleicht muss diese editiert werden, oder kann man sie einfach löschen?

Re: su-to-root not working

Thanks for all the replies. I won't be back at my Linux PC for a couple of days, but will give the suggestions a try. pkexec on the command line didn't work. Perhaps the polkit change will do the job. The fact that Luckybackup doesn't install the super-user launcher anymore is a bug! It should be fi...

Re: Luckybackup super-user not available after install via Software Manager

i don't understand why you go out of your way to avoid using timeshift which is already provided for you and doesn't need much effort from the user. true that timeshift is mainly constructed to restore the user/root filesystem not the user/home but i have never needed to restore my personal files w...

[SOLVED] su-to-root not working

I've been using luckybackup for the past few years. When it installs, it creates the following launcher entry to start as superuser: su-to-root -X -c /usr/bin/luckybackup This has worked fine until Linux Mint 18.3. Now with Linux Mint 19 it doesn't work, nor does any other option work :cry: . I trie...

@bash64: That's great news. Thanks for sharing all your steps. Perseverance certainly pays! There is no way I could have helped you in this. I don't use the i915 driver (no internal GPU), no SeaBIOS either. I wonder if nomodeset is really all that is needed. Do you mind posting your qemu script file...
