Okay, but there should be a solution to this problem.
Yes, download the source code, rewrite it for your DE and re-compile it.
I can and do use a whole bunch of different file-browsers; the trick is to avoid, or circumvent, anything involving freedesktop.org as much as possible.

Re: Compile from source

I have downloaded and extracted the files and cd to the correct directory, but am unable to configure. Although you've apparently gotten cairo dock installed, it's a good idea to say exactly which file(s) you've downloaded, and from where, like: https://github.com/Cairo-Dock/cairo-dock-core/archive...

I can do that one by one with the CLI, but is there a way to use the CLI and only CHMOD +x the executable ones? Like win and *.exe; *.com.

Code: Select all

chmod +x *.exe
chmod +x *.com

However, is there a way to see what applications I have installed, say, the last three months?
Try

Code: Select all

synaptic -> File -> History
or look at

Code: Select all

/var/log/apt/history.log
The keywords are Remove, Purge, Install

Re: Install a C program as a console app

I gather that console app means something you can run from a terminal? First I'd clean up the code a little bit (don't check for num==0 in the loop): #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> int main(){ long int num; while(1) { printf("\n\n *Enter a '0' or zeroes to terminate the program: "); scanf("%...

Thanks to Lutris I have 99.9999% of all my Windows native titles working and flawlessly through a variety of Wine versions as needed depending on the individual title.
So you've installed one million Windows programs and they all worked except one? That's pretty cool.

I prefer the Mint website over the others. Manjaro - horrible and gimmicky, stupid menu (or whatever it is) that comes and goes when you scroll up/down.
