Command for "hide to tray", pls? Can't get Thunderbird to go to tray

LM 18.1 MATE 64bit I'm running Thunderbird together with the FireTray add-on, so clicking the Close button of Thunderbird doesn't result in closing, but in minimizing/hiding Thunderbird to tray. I also installed the Tool Easystroke to my Mint to have mouse gestures on my system. Unfortunately, I can...

LM 18.0 MATE 64bit - How to install Windows browser in Wine, please?

For a video platform that's running only in Windows, I need to install a Windows browser in Wine 1.6.2. This browser must include a new flash plugin. I tried Firefox, Chrome, Chromium and Opera. I couldn't install or even run any of these and none of them allowed for a flash plugin to be installed. ...

LM 18.2 MATE 64bit - Volume tooltip annoyingly disappearing

When I hover over the volume tray icon, there's a tooltip showing the percents of the volume, but as soon as I start scrolling, the tooltip is disappearing. So far, I have to move the mouse a little bit to see this tooltip again. I also tried other distris and desktops, but it's almost everywhere th...

LM 18.1 MATE 64bit > LM 18.2 MATE 64bit - Volume tray icon disappearing

Trying another kernel doesn't help either. The tool tip is still disappearing when I turn the mouse wheel in the volume tray icon.
Does anybody know what to do to see these values again as long as I'm turning that wheel?

LM 18.1 MATE 64bit > LM 18.2 MATE 64bit - Volume tray icon disappearing

After updating LM 18.1 MATE 64bit to LM 18.2 MATE 64bit, there are issues i didn't have before. The most annoying one is this: When I hover over the volume tray icon and turn the wheel, that's exactly, when the tool tip with the % is disappearing and I don't see what value I've set the volume to, an...

Nope, nothing here on my system that looks like a log file viewer.
I'm sorry, I have to postpone this issue for an indefined period of time because of some privat reasons.
I'll be back here as soon as possible.

Re: LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Removing tearing doesn't work

I cannot find out what I need to install or what to do to get rid of this message.

Now I got two messages while booting:
One about the missing i915 bpo and another one is telling me...

Code: Select all

Ignoring BGRT: failed to map image memory
How can I remove these messages, please?

Re: LM 18.1 MATE 64bit - Removing tearing doesn't work

Ok, I had to do these steps twice, but for the time being it looks like it is fixed.
No tearing anymore, either.

Should I worry about the missing firmware or just ignore it?

Ok, let me add what I've tried so far: I just tried the old Firefox 45 (I used "force version" of Synaptic), because I know, it was working back then. But there's still the same problem, when I use the "Webscan" of this AiO-Printer within Firefox (or for instance Chromium or Chrome). "Webscan" is pa...

Ooops, I'm sorry!
Of course, you're absolutely right.
I forgot to add the last folder, when I posted the path.
I just corrected the path by adding an "EDIT:" to my previous post (see 3rd line).
