Re: Mint 19.1 Cinnamon updates

As you are clearly unwilling to consider migrating to any other application, Regards, Karl That is the problem, there isn't another application that works as well as Picasa. As you say I have it set up on Wine but on advice at the start of this thread I was thinking it might be safer to delete Wine...

Re: Mint 19.1 Cinnamon updates

Thanks for the replies. As I have tried to explain Picasa opens every folder, even folders within folders, so every single photo is displayed on the right hand panel. To find a single photo you are looking for you just have to scroll down the thumbnails, right click on it on "locate on Disc" and you...

Re: Mint 19.1 Cinnamon updates

"Could you be bothered to let us know the precise name of the old 32-bit Picasa installation .deb file, which you had used on Mint 18.x KDE? This would give the chance of finding out why it cannot be installed on Mint 19.1." Ask and you will receive. Picasa Version 3.0.0 (Build 57.4402.0) for Linux....

Re: Mint 19.1 Cinnamon updates

Thank you for your helpful reply. Yes I had used that link when I installed Wine but I had as usual messed up and you solution cured the problem. It is the first time I have had to use WineHQ before I have used basic Wine.stable. I would still love to install the 32bit .deb program and ditch Wine. A...

Re: Ciinnamon 19.1 updates

Whoa fellas I wasn't expecting this blasting. Firstly after 191 post I am hardly a newbie. Secondly I will freely admit I haven't a clue what I am doing so I rely on this "friendly " forum. Thirdly if Mint KDE hadn't been discontinued I would have been quite happy to keep updating that. The only Win...

Re: digiKam

Just found out DigiKam does have its own Trash folder. It is right at the bottom of the folder list, because I have so many picture folders I hadn't scrolled down that far.

Using Mint 18.3 KDE

When I right click on an image and "Move to Wastebin" the images vanishes but I can't find it in the Trash folder or anywhere else..

Re: Flatbed scanner

Thanks for the reply.

I don't do many scans so I didn't want to go to the expense of VueScan.

Are there any other cheap scanners that would work straight off? I only need to do documents.

KDE 18.4 open page tiling

In my KDE 18.4 if I put my cursor in the top rh corner it showed all the open windows as tiles. This now doesn't work.

I have checked System Settings/Screen Edges and it is set there.

Any ideas please?

Thank you.

Re: Wine on Mint 19 Cinnamon

Wow, I don't believe it, finally get there. Although I have gone back to Kde it bugged me that I couldn't run Picasa on Cinnamon and one day I might have to move over to it. Picasa is far and away the best program for viewing and sorting images and I would hate to lose it. I decided to give up on th...
