Run a python script in a terminal at Linux Mint 18's startup

Hi Guys, I wrote a python 2/3 script that waits for my VPN tunnel to be up and to have successfully received some data before launching Firefox and qBittorrent. The script works great from "Startup Applications" (/usr/bin/python3 /home/christian/Documents/something.py), except it runs invi...

Re: Removed Original Admin Account, Can't install from new A

Can't Disable Animations

Hi Gang, I really like the way Mate 13 looks and behaves over Ubuntu 10.04. It's much more like Windows. However, I can't for the life of me disable the animations. Specifically, I'm noticing animations when minimizing programs, but I don't want any of them. For anyone who appreciates performance, a...
