Re: Which new graphics card to get for Christmas?

Ah just found the one in the video, is there much difference between the two? Considering the games I play aren't that graphics intense would I see any difference out of the second for another £20 odd?

I don't want to buy it and it doesn't fit or I don't have the correct lead etc. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4G Watching this video the card seems to have 2 fans, have I got the wrong one on Amazon? http://i.imgur.c...

Re: WPS suite

I want to download WPS office suite (especially the word processor) but it is not in the repository I believe. Downloading it on-line is not easy unless I know if I should use the deb rpm etc choice of download. There is also some talk that it is not going to stay around. Libre Office requires me t...

Re: changing folder background

Try right clicking the folder, select Properties, then click the current image in that box. Select another image. Seems to work here. But I'm using Cinnamon 18 so this might not apply. He wants to change the background of inside the folder, so basically the background in Nemo. Not actually the fold...

Re: Mail notification for Thunderbird

Interestingly I've just deleted the Mailnag applet and but I still get system notifications if an email comes through Thunderbird but obviously I don't get a duplicate Mailnag notification, seems a better way of doing it personally.

Re: Mail notification for Thunderbird

Glad you got it working, looking on the applet page it doesn't seem to have any recent comments but I do hope they upgrade the applet so that you don't get system notifications aswell as mail notifications.

I'll see if there's a page to add a feature request.

Re: Mail notification for Thunderbird

My Mailnag configuration looks like this: http://imgur.com/a/4LFAo It works fine for me now that it's setup and the daemon is installed.

Mouse issue

Hi, Not sure if this is an issue or whether it's a feature but either way I'd like to turn it off. I bought a new mouse the other day ( this one to be precise ) but other a while, maybe 5/10 minutes if I don't touch a button on the mouse or move the mouse then it basically freezes.
