Re: Change default window size when opened

Smurphos, Let me clarify this for everyone out there in our Television Audience. . . :wink: I have two terminal window launchers set up. One is a normal, plain-vanilla terminal the way they normally work. The other is the exact same thing except that instead of something like "terminalcommand" I sub...

Re: Change default window size when opened

Yep.

Silly me, I gotta stop running those GUI apps.

You know, useless stuff like Gparted, kuser, Synaptic, update manager and - God help me - that damned root terminal. It'll get you every time! :shock: :wink:

Re: Change default window size when opened

Assuming a stock install, how would that happen?

Re: Change default window size when opened

Unless a window size geometry is explicitly set by the application the default behaviour for Cinnamon/Muffin is to open in the same state as when the window was last closed. So Close a browser maximised it will re-open maximised. Close it windowed it will reopen windowed. Smurphos, In my original p...

Re: Mint Box links stale?

Absolutely no problemo - if I have helped you, consider it a very small installment on what I owe from the help you've given me!

Let me know if there's anything else I can do.

Re: Mint Box links stale?

Linux Mint does not run ads for itself on the website, so this isn't something we control. We can't place from where the ad could be. Should anyone see this ad again, could you take as screenshot and share it? They're easy to get. Just go to the main Mint web page and look at the bottom large-box a...

Re: Change default window size when opened

Do you have maximus (check in synaptic) or the maximus applet (check in Cinnamon settings) installed? If so remove/disable it. Nope. At least not explicitly. Is it installed by default? ("Default" of the distribution package maintainer? :wink: ) My installs are always pure stock installs with the f...

Re: Mint Box links stale?

Don't remove it, update it! We want people to have an opportunity to do things to help support Mint. BTW, does Mint's site generate "pay-by-click" ad revenue? I hope so, because though I may not need hosting in the UK, nor be able to afford the few hundred for the latest Mint box, I like to do some ...

Re: Mint Box links stale?

Thanks!

I guess the point I was trying to make is that one of the pop-up ads on the site - for the Mint Box - takes you down the rabbit hole to somewhere that doesn't help.

How do I/we go about getting it fixed?

Re: Web site enhancement: Enable "auto-save" while creating a topic or reply

Good point, though I don't have satellite Internet. It's not unusual for me to have multiple tabs open especially if I need to reference/quote something else. Maybe there's an undocumented "feature" in Firefox where if you have multiple tabs open, at least two go to the same site, the afternoon is w...

Re: Mate 18.3: Fixed size windows do not rescale or adapt to insufficient screen area

Could it be a sticky key or some such? e.g. Right Ctrl key is a sticker, then when pressing Alt you have a key combo to jump window titlebar to mouse location, is what I'm dreaming up lol, what else might make a window jump to mouse like that? I don't think it's as simple as that. If I had a sticky...

Greetings! I use both chrome and Firefox, and often I have been saved by the "back" button as you suggest.

Re: is MATE lighter than Cinnamon?

It depends. On my laptop with it's fewer available resources, MATE most definitely runs well and Cinnamon is totally unhappy. Based on the experience of others, it's probably a point where hardware limitations become significant enough. My two centavos here: I am translating the intent of this ques...

Re: Web Site Enhancement: Reduce sensitivity of "common words" filter

The forum search is useless and many have noticed, although no change has ever been implemented. I'm not sure I'd be that critical, especially since most fora don't, and can't, afford the horsepower or manpower to duplicate sites like Google or Dogpile. I am equally sure that the 90/10 rule applies...
