Re: Software problem or audio problem?

You can just correct the typo in sppech in the killall command and this will terminate the speech-dispatcher related processes and not anything related to pavucontrol. I'm pretty sure none of the speech-dispatcher processes are named "speech-dispatcher"; they're called: sd_espeak, sd_generic, ... e...

Re: Cannot find Wine in mate

Wine is in there somewhere because when using context menu on a .jpg I get the option to 'Open with Wine application'. A better way to test; in a terminal: wine --version I also have Wine internet Explorer as an option in this menu. Probably a BAD ideas to use it! But I cannot find the program. I w...

Re: Bulk Rename Help, Please

Oh, solved as I was posting this, cool! For "The Others"..... There's also command-line "rename" (it won't rename more than one file to the same name, so I made the "random" parts unique): $ ls 0201-randomAFileName.ext 2763-randomCFileName.ext 2764-randomDFileName.ext 1302-randomBFileName.ext 2763-r...

Re: Bulk Rename Help, Please

Try thunar: rename.jpg There's also a "Search and replace" (strings), though I've never had much luck with the "regular expressions" - they don't act the same way as in "vi". Immediate edit: If you're not using Xfce, you should probably open it with thunar --bulk-rename When the --bulk-rename option...

The Noto font is part of the system, so I must to keep it, I didn't keep it. but I'd like to know a way to at least to disable some of its "extensions" from my text editor, like Noto Sans Cham, Devanagari UI, Gujarati, etc. Search these forums for a post or two about removing those fonts in "one fe...

Re: Fonts looks really bad.

Every fonts looks very "aliased" and bad like in https://imgur.com/TpZ0cBp this image, in font settings i've set anti-aliasing to "enable" then sub-pixel rendering to "RGB" and hinting style to "medium". The font above the label "Anti-aliasing on" isn't aliased, and it looks just like your settings...

Honestly, gksudo and a number of other little things are the kind of stuff I've really never understood why people use.
Like I said above, I use gksudo to launch gparted and synaptic from my fluxbox keyboard shortcuts. It's just an easy way.

But for editing system text files:

As for editing system configuration files: aside from pkexec, gvfs now has builtin support for admin:// paths that automatically invoke PolKit as needed. None of the stuff you listed works for me (Xfce Mint18.3). Is it supposed to work now or not? $ gparted-pkexec ... Password: polkit-agent-helper-...

go to your software manager and type in "pulseEffects".

Synaptic hasn't heard of "pulseEffects" either.

I started some music by clicking on it to start Rhythmbox but there seemed no way to shut it down until the music was over.
That doesn't sound right.
Do you see a window? And clicking the "X" (close window) button didn't work?
Rt-click the rhythmbox toolbar icon-> close didn't work?
