Re: Lock screen delay...

Super L was for debugger but I use it to lock the screen.
Ctrl Alt L - no delay.
Super L - delay (other Super combinations have no delay).
I wonder what command Ctrl Alt L executes.

Re: Lock screen delay...

I noticed something.
If I press Ctrl Alt L the screen locks immediately.
If I use a keyboard shortcut Super L (xdg-screensaver lock) there's a 1s delay.
I use a lot of custom keyboard shortcuts none of them except the above have any delays.

Lock screen delay...

LM20

When I execute this command from terminal the screen locks immediately: xdg-screensaver lock
I created a keyboard shortcut with the same command but there's always 1s delay.
I'd like the screen to lock immediately.
Any suggestion?

TIA

[SOLVED] Encrypted home directory password question...

LM20 Cinnamon

I know the admin password can be changed by booting to recovery mode.
Can the admin password be changed even if the home directory is encrypted?
I didn't forget my password. I only want to make sure that if my computer was stolen, there would be no way to access my home directory.

TIA

Re: Blinking cursor (caret) color and width question...

It worked! Thank you *very* much. >It's extraordinary that something so clearly desirable is proving so difficult to achieve. I've been using Mint for over 4 years. The adjustable caret width and color plus Snap-to mouse option (very handy especially when using a touchpad) are the only things I miss...

Re: Blinking cursor (caret) color and width question...

Thank you *very* much.
I tried but it didn't work for me. Mint-Y-Brown doesn't have gtk-main.css so I edited gtk.css.

Blinking cursor (caret) color and width...

LM 20 Cinnamon I found this article http://urly.fi/1Iyf on how to change caret color and width. Changing width works fine but I can't get the color working. What's would be a proper syntax? This is what's in my gtk.css .nemo-desktop.nemo-canvas-item { color: #FFC107; text-shadow: 0px 0px @desktop_it...

fd command question...

Does fd (fd-find) search use index?
If yes, is it possible to permanently exclude certain directories?
Or could they be excluded using alias in bashrc?

Re: Where are theme settings stored?

Thank you.
I have an old, complete backup (drive image).
I don't want to restore it. I only need to know what theme was used.

Re: [SOLVED] VPN question...

Thank you again.
It was prompting me for a password because I was autologin.
I disabled autologin and now the command works perfectly.

[SOLVED] Popcorn-Time question...

LM20 Cinnamon

I very rarely use Popcorn-Time.
It always worked but now I can view thumbnails of movies and TV shows but nothing gets downloaded.
The only thing visible is the black screen after I click on a show or movie.

TIA
