Re: Uninstalled Firefox from Synaptic, now cannot re-install (not found)

Sorry for the late reply...

That seemed to do the trick...

I always assumed that update manager did a "sudo apt update " every time it runs - am I mistaken?

Cheers,

Mike.

Re: Suggestion: Add minimal install option

If you do this regularly then simply set up the VM once and then clone it (or if it's the same reset it to a snapshot). Or at least note down the packages you always remove, throw an apt purge --autoremove in front and you're done, too. Why would you repeatedly do this manually? I used to use a rea...

Re: Suggestion: Add minimal install option

Apologies for cross-posting, but there seems to be a couple of threads requesting a similar thing... I'd love a minimal install, but for the moment I have to manual remove stuff. I have a 'fully-featured' Linux Mint install, but I also I have a requirement for a very trimmed-down/bare-bones install ...

Re: Mint Minimal ISO (Yes like Ubuntu)

I'd love a minimal install, but for the moment I have to manual remove stuff. I have a requirement for a very trimmed-down install for some VMs I use, so get rid of pretty much all the pre-installed apps. It takes me a good hour, which is a bloody long time imo... I run Mint xfce and after an instal...

Uninstalled Firefox from Synaptic, now cannot re-install (not found)

Hi Guys, This is puzzling me - I did a clean install of Linux Mint 19.1 64-bit xfce and removed most of the install applications (including Firefox), using Synaptic. I'd now like to reinstall, but when I go into Synaptic (or the Software Manager), Firefox is nowhere to be found. Any idea why this wo...

Re: Pinta crashes in Mint 19 Cinnamon

Yep, it bombs on LM 19.1 xfce 64-bit too....

A real shame, as it's perfect from simple image and photo editing. GIMP is a pain and so counter-intuitive.

Giving the Mono workaround a go, but it's installing a shed-load of crap...

Re: Linux Mint 19.1 “Tessa” Xfce released!

Just upgraded from LM 19.0 64-bit xfce to 19.1 - the process went without a hitch. One minor annoyance is that in program window title-bars, when the window is maximised, the program icon (at the far left of the title-bar) is too far to the left (by around 4 or 5 pixels?) and appears right at the ed...

Interesting - one of my local Mint mirrors (AARNet) is showing 19.1 as released.

The ISOs are all dated 17-Dec-2018...

Have they jumped the gun, or is it correct?

Re: 4.14.8 kernel on LM 18.3 xfce 64-bit - works well...

Another update - not suggesting everyone rush out and try it - just FYI really... I've been running LM 19.0 xfce 64-bit since it was launched earlier in the year and have been updating to the latest kernel version via the UKUU program. Currently running 4.19.8 I've had no issues on any of the kernel...

Re: How to upgrade to Linux Mint 19

The timeshift step is a real ball-ache... Finding enough space was a drama, then it took an age (over 3 hours on my VB installation).

Surely timeshift should be optional for those users that already have backup/restore procedures in-place?

Re: Linux Mint 19 “Tara” Xfce – BETA Release

@GeneBenson, Thanks for the excellent feedback and info.

I've also noticed that any progress-bar indicators (particularly in Update Manager and Synaptic) are much 'thinner' (about half the width compared to LM18.3) than previously.

Re: Linux Mint 19 “Tara” Xfce – BETA Release

I've also come across another glitch with the new volume control. When I mouse-over the volume icon, I get two pop-up volume control bars at the top of the screen. (see attached pic). Is this the place I should be reporting issues such as this? Cheers, Mike. http://sites.google.com/site/fishvictoria...

Re: Linux Mint 19 “Tara” Xfce – BETA Release

Same here. It looks like they've added a separate notification icon for the volume control (looks big and clunky). The old volume icon used to be an 'indicator' under the xfce4-indicator-plugin, but it doesn't seem to display in LM 19.0 - if anyone know how to get it back, please let me know. Cheers...
