Update Manager viewing installs

In the update manager when its downloaded the update and installs it there is a littler drop down arrow if clicked allows you to watch the update install process. Is there a way or an option to make this window stay open for the downloads and update installs without having to click the little arrow?

Re: Shadow & Shade Theme

Is there a program that can resize and convert more than one file at a time? I had a bash at doing what you said. It kind of worked but many icons weren't replaced and it looked a bit of a hatchet job, but many icons were too large and so on. To go through each icon individually and resize them and ...

Re: Shadow & Shade Theme

Okay got it to work :D Lets see if I can remember this. I extracted the contents to a desktop folder. In the "Shade" folder is a folder called "metacity-1" I cut and paste that folder into the "Shadow" folder and then opened /usr/share/themes as root and placed only the "Shadow" folder there, with t...

Re: Shadow & Shade Theme

Yeah I tried two different ways, as just extracting to that location wasn't allowed, so I made a desktop folder called Shadow & Shade and extracted the contents there and then opened /usr/share/themes as root and put the folder in there. I also dragged and dropped the contents of the tar.gz ie. (The...

Re: How can I hide my online activities from my ISP?

A paid for/private VPN would be sufficient? Privacy is the reason I switched to Linux Mint from Windows. When Windows 10 was released and information about its activities came to light, I was lucky enough to find an article that suggested Linux as an alternative. Did some looking around and it seeme...

When using an external monitor with my laptop, I keep the laptop display "turned off" (there is a switch in display preferences). This seems to keep applications from popping up on the laptop monitor for me. Mate you are a champion! My switch doesn't say turn off, but I can't believe I didn't try t...
