LM 19.1 MATE 64bit - Countdown for login window?

I've set up LM 19.1 MATE 64 bit to log me in automatically, and I've added this script to the startup-programmes sh -c "sleep 2; mate-screensaver-command --lock" to lock the screen 2 seconds after booting to Mint. But now, I'm missing the login window with the 10 seconds countdown like in previous v...

LM 19.1 64bit MATE - Folder names in Caja invisible with custom background

After installing the new LM 19.1 MATE 64bit, I changed the system's theme to Mint-Y-Dark and its according symbols. Then I changed the background of Caja to "Fibers", where the names of the folders and files are supposed to change from the default white font into a black one. Instead they remain whi...

LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Help wanted for a mail notifier, please!

Because I want to remove the FireTray add-on for Thunderbird, I'm looking for a good mail notifier. I tried both mail-notification and mailnag. But they don't work properly. How can I get one of them or any other mail notifier to work as I want? It should work for MATE, support more than one mail ac...

LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Gis-Weather Location cannot be added.

What's happening with Gis-Weather currently? Today it wohldn't start anymore after a reboot of Mint. Puring and reinstalling didn't help. After that I couldn't even add a location anymore. I'm used to use Accuweather.com and I added my location according to this pattern: de/town/zipcode,locationcode...

Re: LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Thunderbird 60, alternative for Firetray addon?

I'm early? Yes, I am, you're right, but August is only 16 weeks away, so time is running out for missing add-on updates. :) Until then, as a workaround, I'm using a package called mail-notification. Unfortunately, I cannot find a working syntax in order to add thunderbird to /home/[username]/.gnome2...

LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Thunderbird 60, alternative for Firetray addon?

Since Thunderbird will soon get a similar update as Firefox did a few months ago, where only webextension add-ons will work, I noticed Firetray won't work anymore. This add-on makes Thunderbird minimize to tray right after Thunderbird was started. How can I have the same feature automatically withou...

LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Skype doesn't connect automatically on startup

Within Skype, I enabled the option to start it on startup and to start minimized to the tray. Usually it connects automatically, and the tray icon is blue to show me I'm online, but recently it doesn't connnect anymore. To get online I have to click the tray icon to open the Skype window and then th...

Re: LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Driver for usb wifi adapter "TP-Link Archer T2UH" wanted

Meanwhile, I gave up on the T2UH and I purchased a T4UH AC 1300 . For this device, I had to compile the driver, too, but at least, this one did work perfectly. Here's, how I did it: sudo apt-get install build-essential dkms git clone https://github.com/gnab/rtl8812au In the rtl8812au folder I made s...

Re: LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Driver for usb wifi adapter "TP-Link Archer T2UH" wanted

This guide is about the T1U, not about the T2UH. Well at least, somehow it did work (sort of!), but only for channels 36 to 48. Changing channels didn't work without rebooting Mint. The device just doesn't exist for Mint, if you set up your router to higher channels. The device also doesn't work for...

Re: LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Driver for usb wifi adapter "TP-Link Archer T2UH" wanted

Now, I got it! :shock:
You want me to blacklist mt7610u_sta, because there's another mt7610u (without _sta) installed.

Anyway, the 4.4 kernel doesn't help.

Re: LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Driver for usb wifi adapter "TP-Link Archer T2UH" wanted

But as far as I understand this, the mt7610u_sta is for the Archer device and the rt2800usb for the previous one,
so why would I try so hard to install this driver if in the end I blacklist it?

Re: LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Driver for usb wifi adapter "TP-Link Archer T2UH" wanted

I also noticed another side effect, I can plugin this device, but I cannot unplug it without Mint freezing.

As for the blacklist, what device is supposed to be in modprobe.d, the 2800 or the 7610?

Re: LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Driver for usb wifi adapter "TP-Link Archer T2UH" wanted

Still doesn't work. sudo cp mt7610u.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless doesn't produce that folder and the .ko file isn't there either. And this command echo "blacklist mt7610u_sta" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/mt7610u_sta.conf results in blacklisting the mt7610u_sta driver. But t...

Re: LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Driver for usb wifi adapter "TP-Link Archer T2UH" wanted

So, I do the same as I do with the other version, but instead of

Code: Select all

sudo make install
I perform the copy command?
