Re: Seeking GUI File Manager that doesn't hide .desktop file extension

Thanks for the good suggestions. I gave XFE a spin around the block, and immediately encountered some UI issues. I'm currently chewing on the GTK2 version of SpaceFM. There's some real depth to the configuration options there which will keep me busy for a while. And of course, the thing that appears...

Seeking GUI File Manager that doesn't hide .desktop file extension

I would very much like to find a GUI file manager that displays files as they actually exist, with none of the annoying nonsense with *.desktop, theme (index.theme), and perhaps other types of files that most file managers habitually misrepresent. A non-default setting to do that would be fine, but ...

"PAR" is not a command, it's an environment variable. It's defined by the line that starts "PAR='winepath . . . "

Re: How do I get caja to open more than one folder at a time?

As well as having two "panes" displayed, you can right-click any folder and choose Open in a New Tab, or Open in a New Window.
Who could ask for more?

Re: HP Deskjet F4210 "All-In-One"

I'd recommend the packages "hplip" and "hplip-gui". This is the software HP provides for its printers on Linux. I have a Deskjet F4180 on Linux Mint 17.3 Mate, and it all works well except for the notification area icon. Instead of that, I put a permanent launcher icon on my task...

Re: Linux Mint 18, Synaptic "Mark for upgrade" menu item gone

Here's a website with info on how to fix LM's broken version of Synaptic, which I used quite successfully on my LM 17.3:

Re: folder doubled when copied to storage drive

The NTFS file system used in Windows supports "compressed" files and folders. So, if files like that were read and transferred to an
uncompressed format on a Linux filesystem, then they would certainly "expand" in disk usage.

Re: how to wget all posts/comments on one vbulletin thread (just text/html is ok)

No, the site is not showing the page linked to above in anyone's browser. It's showing a login page instead. Wget will not be able to access the link in
question either.

Re: Scanning

According to the specs I saw on a Brother site, the scanner only has WIA (Windows) and Twain (Windows and Mac OS) support. No mention
of Linux at all.

Re: Menus with larger icons, MATE 17.3

Right-click the Main Menu (Mint Menu) button. Choose Preferences. Most of the tabs on the resulting dialog have a box to choose icon size. The default is 24.
