LM 19.1 MATE 64bit - How to install Open Visual Traceroute?

Since LM 19.1 MATE 64bit is based on Ubuntu 18.04, there's no gksu anymore,
but Open Visual Traceroute depends on that package.
How am I supposed to install this tool now?

Re: How to autostart the onboard keyboard, please?

Surprise! It's working! :D I removed the entry from the startup apps and created a new one by enabling the option "start at login" within the context menu of the main menu entry of onboard . Looks like something about the previous startup entry must have been broken. The new startup entry doesn't ha...

Re: How to autostart the onboard keyboard, please?

I'm baffled :? So, this makes two of us. :D Install debsums if you don't have it installed and run debsums onboard to see if anything changed with that package. According to debsums, everything is ok. debsums onboard /usr/bin/onboard OK /usr/bin/onboard-settings OK /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/On...

Re: How to autostart the onboard keyboard, please?

I already tried that, but onboard didn't start.
EDIT:
I also tried different delays. No chance.

Re: How to autostart the onboard keyboard, please?

Here's the output:

Code: Select all

(onboard:7979): Gdk-CRITICAL **: 15:17:35.496: gdk_window_thaw_toplevel_updates: assertion 'window->update_and_descendants_freeze_count > 0' failed
Onboard does start, when I start it manually and then, the tray icon is there, too.
Onboard just doesn't do an autostart.

How to autostart the onboard keyboard, please?

In several versions of Mint, I've been using onboard , because I need more than one keyboard layout. But now, in LM 19.1 MATE 64bit, it just won't start automatically. No matter what I try, there is no tray icon for onboard . I tried to add it to the startup programs, but it just refuses to work. Th...

Conflict between FF67 and Compton

I'm running LM 19.1 MATE 64bit together with FF67. My default window manager is set to "Marco + Compton". No, when I play a youtube video and drag&drop some marked text from below the video into the search bar of youtube, my entire screen gets black or turns into some kind of colourized pattern of s...

Re: How is linux kernel 5 on linux mint?

I'm back on 4.18.0-21 because there's a sound issue with 5.0.0-16. My speakers go into a standby in idle after a timeout. To avoid this, I have this script (with sox installed): #!/bin/bash while sleep 240s ; do if ! [ "$( pactl list short sink-inputs )" ] ; then play -v 5.0 -n synth 1 sin 40 fi don...

Re: LM 19.1 MATE 64bit - How to start Compiz after Skype with bash commands, please?

I think, what I need is this: Since I want Compiz to be the default window manager, I need a script that switches to Marco or Marco+Compton, start Skype (with its auto-start feature disabled) and then return to Compiz again. That way, I am without Compiz for only a few seconds, which i guess should ...

LM 19.1 MATE 64bit - How to change language of notification popups, please?

Since I'm running the German version of Mint, I'd also like to have German notification popups. For example: I unmount a thumb-drive and get notified in English language, that it is now safe to remove that drive. Is there any way to get these notifications in my language, please?

Re: LM 19.1 MATE 64bit - How to start Compiz after Skype with bash commands, please?

Starting Skype in background does work properly with "Marco + Cromton", it just doesn't with Compiz. So, I don't have to change anything within Skype, but in Mint. That's why I want to start Compiz delayed, i.e. after Skype was started. Let me repeat it, I just need one command line code to start "M...

Re: LM 19.1 MATE 64bit - How to start Compiz after Skype with bash commands, please?

Sorry, still no way to start Skype properly, while Compiz is already running. When I try, I still see an empty window frame, which is quite hard to remove. To do this, I have to switch to "Marco + Compton", minimize and unminimize Skype and close it. Then I have to restart Skype and come back to Com...

Re: LM 19.1 MATE 64bit - How to start Compiz after Skype with bash commands, please?

This is what I did: First Marco + Compton was the default window manager. I went to the Control Center, section Display, Desktop settings, Window. There, I switched to Compiz, after doing my settings in the CompizConfig Settings Manager. Skype was already set to autostart at boot up. After the reboo...

Re: LM 19.1 MATE 64bit - How to start Compiz after Skype with bash commands, please?

Sorry, the problem is not to start Skype, but to start Compiz after Skype was started. Skype does start properly when "Marco + Compton" is used, it just doesn't when Compiz is used. The command compiz --replace & doesn't work, because Compiz seems to be started without its settings. So, there are no...

LM 19.1 MATE 64bit - How to start Compiz after Skype with bash commands, please?

After installing LM 19.1 MATE 64bit, I've set it up to use Compiz as the default desktop manager. I also have Skype in the start-up programms, but when Compiz is used, Skype doesn't start in the background (minimized to tray) properly. So I decided to use the following bash script, which I added to ...

Re: LM 19.1 MATE 64bit - Countdown for login window?

Well, I consider it too dangerous to mess around with different greeters. Therefore, I just reduced the timeout from 10 to 6 seconds. So, there's no need for a countdown anymore, but still this should be enough time to do a click or enter something, in case I want to, which is very unlikely, because...
