Re: LM17.3 - How to set Firefox scrollbar behaviour same in KDE as Cinnamon & Xfce? [SOLVED]

I am not satisfied with scrollbar behave, as I would like the click to go up one page space at a time, instead of top to bottom.

If any one knows how to accomplish this, please let me know?

TIA

Re: Going Back to Linux Mint 17.3 KDE

Went back to 17.3 myself, waiting on the 18.1 release, hopefully the plasma is improved in that release?

Re: What is your backup strategy for servers/desktops/laptops?

I put a second hard drive in my PC just for saving old stuff and daily backups. I also have 2 external drives that I backup to and swap monthly. One is stored inside another building, the other one is kept in the office, they are rotated every month. I use Lucky Backup to accomplish all my date back...

Sooner or later the US government will bully any popular email service or search engine to allow them to ease drop.

Re: password manager

I used to use Revelation, when I used Gnome back in the day, now I use Keepassx. It had lots of great features, and is worth learning.

Re: KDE Plasma 5.8

I tried it with 5.8 but maybe I have old hardware? The performance of the KDE in 17.3 is much better. Eventually I will have to go with plasma, but for now I am going to ride out the 17.3 version with 4.13.2 KDE. At least the Plasma did not go through a radical change the way Gnome 1 did, the reason...

Re: KDE Plasma 5.8

Darn I just went back to 17.3 from 18 because the plasma was too buggy to be productive.

I still have 18 on another partition, I will have to give 5.8 a try.

Icons are missing in Kmymoney

Hi I am using Linux Mint Plasma 64 bit, and Kmymoney 4.6.6

For some reason most of the program icons show as blank.

Any one know how to fix this?

Thanks

Re: A suitable replacement for Lightning

Well I settled on keeping Tbird for mail, and Rainlendar actually works out fine, once I started to learn how it works.

Evolution had 2 reminders and was using 13% CPU for each one?

Reminderfox looks promising, but seems like it needs some overhead as well.

Rainlendar is the lightest.

Re: A suitable replacement for Lightning

I did not like rainlander.

But actually I accidentally installed the 32 bit version from the main page, and that caused it to wipe out 96 packages? I might give it another try?

OTOH I got Evolution to hold onto passwords, all I did was deselected add to keyring.

Re: A suitable replacement for Lightning

Well rainlander wanted to uninstall 96 packages, and it did, good thing I had a back up.

Evolution looks perfect, but it constantly asks for my passwords, so very annoying.
