Try choosing default mirrors in software sourcEs in upgrade manager. Refresh.
Did this, then used synaptic to remove/purge/ mintupdate & mintupdate-info. Then reinstalled mintupdate.

Same result.

Re: 18.3 upgrade to 19.3

Thanks, racer. But this and all the other instructions say to click Edit > Upgrade on the software updater window. BTW I have done this procedure 3 times in the past and it worked fine. Now on this laptop it's not working. The upgrade selection is missing from my version of mintupdate. I've tried re...

Re: LM19 package keeps updating even though I blacklisted it

Thank you; I checked and found auto updates was selected. Whenever updates are available, I click the checkboxes of the packages to upgrade. I had unclicked dconf-editor earlier, then right-clicked and selected to ignore updates for this package. later I did the same for gnome-mines, but somehow it ...

[SOLVED] LM19 package keeps updating even though I blacklisted it

I prefer the LM18 version of gnome-mines because it displays the score, even though the score doesn't make the top ten. The lm19 version just restarts the game. Seeing the score was a kind of reward for me in lm18--now it's just an unsatisfying 'new game'. Anyway, I downloaded the lm18 version from ...

Re: dconf editor stopped working

when did this update to dconf-editor occur? i used dconf-editor quite recently and it had the old behaviour. I will use timeshift to restore my system to that point in time, where dconf was working the way I'm used to, then I will set software updater to ignore updates fror dconf editor. Unless you ...

I wish I knew what you mean by " Navigate to a key with a schema and it will go away ."

Re: dconf editor stopped working

So what exactly is wrong with your dconf-editor then when you say it stopped working? Needs more details, e.g. does it not open? Sorry. I was too lazy to type the complete message, as it couldn't be copied. "No schema availablel. A schema is what describes the use of a key, and Dconf Editor can't f...

Re: LM 19.2 Cin: mintupdate & mintupdate-launcher not showing in system tray

I don't recall changing the preferences, but the 2nd one was set to "on". setting it 'off' corrected the problem, so thank you very much!

SOLVED LM 19.2 Cin: mintupdate & mintupdate-launcher not showing in system tray

Good morning. For some reason mintupdate no longer shows up in the system panel. How do I get it back? The update window opens when I run mintupdate from the command line or menu; then I have to manually select "refresh", etc. But neither mintupdate or mintupdate-launcher remain on the system tray o...

Re: nemo action: touch <selection>

Solved:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
#filename cannot contain spaces...
newdate=$(zenity --entry --title="MyTouch" --text="YYMMDDHHSS")
if [ -z $newdate ] ; then
  for var in "$@"
  do
    touch "$var"
  done
else
  for var in "$@"
  do
    touch -t $newdate "$var"
  done
fi
Thanks to all,

Thanks Smurphos! What a compliment -- that you wish to add my action to your repo! If you could send me a copy of your version I'd be grateful. Or else a link to it. Duh is right! The nemo_sample_actions file should really specify this. But there were probably some sites that mentioned it, but misse...

Re: chrome/brave browser: temporarily use other search engine

Hey, Thanks!! :D

I'll check it out. I think Brave has a similar feature, but I don't know how to do it. I'll do further checking.
