I think it all stems from there! I thought it was perhaps to do with my re-installing V. Box etc. !! Anyway hopefully speak to you l...

Re: Permissions issue '644'

Cosmo,

Thanks. Just to check I have auto-login enabled and cannot access control panel to change it.

How do I get around that?

Meanwhile I'm printing your instructions out!

This prevents the default session and language from being saved. File should be owned by user and have 644 permissions. Users /Home directory must be owne...

Mate 1.14

Is Mate 1.14 going to appear in the 'Rosa' repos?

And if not, why not?

Re: Thunderbird - alternatives?

Having started this I thought I should say what I am using now. (Presumptuous I know :wink: ) So 'Claws' is it and I find it suits me very well with not too many options. I just want a simple email programme without calenders and the like although even if an app. has these you do not have to use the...

Re: Thunderbird - alternatives?

Well trying out Clawsmail and it suits me very well. Very fast to load unlike Thunderbird although I have no plug-ins loaded yet. May not want any actually - we shall see. Could not find 'Echelon' unless it it something to do with spying? I will add that I have my main email interaction via 'Fastmai...

Thunderbird - alternatives?

Hello, Well as it says above 'Thunderbird - alternatives?' Does anyone have/use an alternative to T? I ask because I find T is getting 'clunky'. Various odd things happen with no consistency so I am thinking it may be time to change to something really simple. Any offers or thoughts on worthwhile pr...

Re: Cannot get Realtek RTS525A card-reader to work

Found this link which seems a little easier than some to follow:

Re: Cannot get Realtek RTS525A card-reader to work

Hi, I am having the same issue but with a Genesys Logic which started with the last upgrade (I think) I know that some drivers for SD cards have changed but somewhat concerned about what to do. Have tried various links but they are a little 'out-of-date'. Like mhelvens would appreciate some help. Th...

Shotwell and 'Send-to'

Hi, Shotwell, as you may know, has a 'send-to' option for sending images via email. Shotwell uses Nautilus 'send-to' and my case defaults to Thunderbird. No problem with the Thunderbird part but I would like Shotwell to use the CAJA 'send-to'. Does anyone know how to amend the Shotwell prog. to look...

Re: Manually loaded apps. where do they go? SOLVED.

Thanks Mute Ant - printed off for my file!

Thanks too Quetzal. I did install Pale Moon via the proper procedure (I thought) but it still ended up in /Home.

Will move stuff around in due course and redo the 'paths'.
