Re: /root swap and /home partitions?

I did 20GB root, 4GB swap, and the rest /home. It's not super critical as this is just a project pc. If someone else gets it they can use a USB Flash drive to store stuff on. This one is a little small for my taste so may try to sell it off to another linux enthusiast. The HDD and battery all checks...

Re: /root swap and /home partitions?

I'll give it 4GB as I don't have much experience with so little RAM, done. Moving on to /home and the rest of the install.

Re: File Manager gets stuck in Panel Mate 18.0

Well yeah, for some of these old Vista pc's I like to refurbish. Otherwise I'm a KDE 17 series guy.

Re: /root swap and /home partitions?

Whoops, I swapped the ram, now has 2GB. I'll give it 1GB of swap, that's good enough ain't it lol. Not if you want to hibernate the device, and probably not if you intend to have more than one or two tabs open in your browser. To prevent issues further down the track, you might need 4GB of swap.

Re: /root swap and /home partitions?

Will do, 2GB it is!

What about that message during install asking if I want to "unmount" sdb, I forget how to answer that. I already answered "no", but I think in the past I said yes to unmount. I'm talking about the Install media in this instance.

/root swap and /home partitions?

Is there any good reason anymore to make /root swap and /home partitions. I'm going to install Xfce 18.3 again, but forget if I need to create a swap partition. I don't think it is required in 19, but 18 still uses it right? Also, I remember reading that Timeshift needed a /home partition to work pr...

Re: File Manager gets stuck in Panel Mate 18.0

Sorry trytip, I tried everything suggested at the time. Concerning Screen Tearing, it happens on every pc I've tried it on and with all these other issues I won't bother anymore. I've been stupid enough to try and get all this stuff working with no good documentation and wasted hours of my time. Tim...

Re: * Mate - Panel Taskbar application minimize issues

@mint4all, Thanks for the work brother! I'm glad to see that this is not present in Mate 19, but Screen Tearing in Mate 19 with Firefox is unacceptable, so again, I won't use Mint Mate anymore and will look to Ubuntu Mate perhaps.

Very sad as Mate was a good one for not so good graphics etc.

Re: File Manager gets stuck in Panel Mate 18.0

i'm still using mate 17.3 and when support goes dead i hope mate 19 if it comes out it doesn't have flaws. the only thing i can suggest if you still have issues (i see the OP from jan,2017 that's a long time) change the window manager in control center > desktop settings > windows > window manager ...

Re: File Manager gets stuck in Panel Mate 18.0

File Manager getting stuck in Panel when Minimized are you using Caja? what do you mean by "getting stuck"? It should be showing in the window list until it is closed. I'm using whatever the default is. If I open the File Manager to something like my USB Flash Drive, then Minimize it, Open and Clos...

Re: Weird Taskbar Behaviour

Hi folks, Thanks for the replies! all41: Your description isn't really what's happening I think. It's not "locked" applications. stormryder: Sounds like you have the same issue as me. The reason I think it's a desktop manager thing and not a problem with an application is that the application in qu...

Re: * Mate - Panel Taskbar application minimize issues

Agreed phd21, I love Mate, and especially Mate 18 Series but just cannot install it any more unless a fix can be found, or even better not have this issue to start with. I can say that it occurs on everything I've used, Linux Live Sessions and ALL Installs, no matter what computer it's on so far. Th...

Re: File Manager gets stuck in Panel Mate 18.0

Nobody else experiencing this? I really miss installing Mate to any old Vista pc's and some other newer pc's, but now cannot install the 18 Series due to this problem. I have now relegated myself to ONLY Installing Xfce because it don't have any blatant quarks like Mate 18 Series does. The only Mate...

Re: Xfce 18.1 Upgrade to 18.3

I will try that MrEen on another machine of mine, as this one is for someone else. 1:17 is pretty darn good for a quick install on an old Vista machine. I know there are a few things I can tweak, but don't want that to hamper someone else not knowing the changes I made.

Thanks, pcpunk

Re: Xfce 18.1 Upgrade to 18.3

Just did a full shutdown and startup with consistent 1:17 startup times, pretty good on an old Vista Machine.

Thanks guys! I will follow some of Pjotr's suggestions to finish up, as I remember MS Core Fonts etc, just a few of the simple stuff really.
