Re: mockturtle Weather applet no longer working (bug report raised)

I'm not sure there is much mockturtl can do if the data source has been discontinued. It's not technically a software bug. We can just hope he can find another source.

Re: How to restore cinnamon settings dconf/user and make them stick?

Thank you for the advice. I tried all of those things but the result ended being the same. I finally decided the best thing was to manually reconfigure everything. It would still be interesting though to understand what was happening and how it was getting reset.

Not only that. I can't even send an email. The entire area where you key in the TO, CC, BCC addresses is blanked out and I can't even move the cursor into the body area to type anything. Someone really hosed up this update.

Re: Firefox 57 Tabs On Bottom Easy Solution

That is good information. My question is how did you know to do this and where are all of these userChrome options and variables documented? I can see this being very useful.

Re: Bridging WiFi and Ethernet ?

50 views and no one knows? Did I make the question too complicated?

Simplified: How do I bridge a working wifi to the Ethernet port so that the cable connected device is visible on the local network?

Re: Do you need samba to share between 2 Mint systems?

Ok. I installed samba on the laptop. It was already on the desktop machine which was upgraded from Mint 17 and everything had been working. I had also installed system-config-samba but it did not work at all on either system. It asked for the password and then died. No error messages; just nothing. ...

Do you need samba to share between 2 Mint systems? [Solved]

I thought samba was for Linux/Windows sharing. I don't have any Windows machines. I have a new installed Mint 18 laptop and an older Mint 18 desktop that was upgraded from 17. On the laptop when I try to create a share for a directory I get a message that /var/lib/samba/usershares does not exist. I'...

I always just run the .deb file and it works fine. No problems. You of course have to update the guest additions in each of your guest as well.
