Re: Window borders of Clearlooks-Phenix Metacity theme not working in Mint 19

Thanks, I already saw those themes. For now I started with a copy of the Mint-Y metacity file. I added a colour for the title bar of a focused window. I have to fine-tune it: button icons, maybe top border (has a small white line now), readability of title font. Attached is the first result so far.

Window borders of Clearlooks-Phenix Metacity theme not working in Mint 19

Hello, Up to Mint 18.3 I was using the Metacity theme Clearlooks-Phenix . One of the reasons to use it, is the window title bar color of the focused window. Unfortunately in Mint 19 this theme no longer works. According to the github repo the theme supports GTK up to version 3.20. Mint 19 uses 3.22....

[SOLVED] Why is version of linux-kernel-generic lower than actual kernel used?

Currently I am running Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon. Kernel version is 4.13.0-45-generic (according to uname -r). Synaptic showed there were a lot of kernels installed, probably caused by successive updates. I uninstalled three versions of linux-headers-(version), linux-headers-(version)-generic, linux-...

Re: Set monitor dpi (NOT font and icon size) in Cinnamon

I tried the text-scaling-factor in dconf-editor. I only saw an effect in Writer, not in Evince. Based on the description the scaling-factor would come close, but unfortunately that only accepts integers. (The description of the text-scaling-factor says the same, but it does accept fractions.) Anyway...

Re: Set monitor dpi (NOT font and icon size) in Cinnamon

I know Ctrl-Plus, it is setting the zoom factor. That is not what I am looking for. What I want is select zoom 100%, and then have the document displayed at its actual size. Ctrl-Plus and Ctrl-Minus in Evince zoom in and out, but don't give me a 114% zoom that is required to view a document at its a...

Re: Set monitor dpi (NOT font and icon size) in Cinnamon

Yes, but there I can only set the screen resolution, but that is already set to the monitor's native resolution (2560 x 1440).
The only other option there is rotation.
There is no possibility to set the DPI value.

Set monitor dpi (NOT font and icon size) in Cinnamon

Hello, How can I set my monitor's dpi value in Cinnamon? My monitor has 109 dpi (27" 2560 x 1440). When viewing documents at 100% (in Writer or Evince for example) they are shown too small. The size of fonts and icons in the userinterface is fine. User interface scaling only shows the options Normal...

Re: bash SHELL environment variable not set

That's it. The two accounts that had the problem did have no default shell specified (although they were using bash according to the output of ps $$). Adding /bin/bash solved the problem.

Thank you very much!

What do you mean with that? Do you have to refresh the package list manually? I have had to do that always. I switched from Ubuntu when Mint 13 was the active version.
