Re: Volume icon has disappeared

I can't answer your question. I can't remember. Anyway my problem is somehow solved because I uninstalled the Win7 Volume Mixer and instead now I am using KMix. I had to uninstall lots of stuff (like Paman) because at first it was not working... Thanks for your help.

See if this works (I've seen something similar used, but I don't know that it'll work for us): apt install plasma-pa/xenial Yeah, it worked! Thank you very much MrEen.

If I switch off the Mint firewall, everything is back to normal. I have to say that my Win 7 machine is proxied, so perhaps it's why the Mint f...

Re: Qt platform plugin error

Me too I love Mint KDE and was also disappointed when I heard they will stop producing it. I am still a newbie with Mint so I wonder if I should go the same way as you. I heard good things about Neon, but I suppose the community is much smaller than with Linux Mint so if I have problems it will be m...

Re: Qt platform plugin error

PPA's from the software developers or recommended from the software developers are usually safe. Ok, good to know! Thanks. On a different subject, your signature stipulates that you are using Linux Mint 19 with KDE. If I understood correctly, how is this possible?? Because recently I had an issue w...

Re: Open my file manager as root with a command line?

I am using the ESR version of Firefox, which is different than the one from the Linux Mint repositories, and I need to reinstall it.
To do so I always followed this method which worked perfectly but for this I need to open my file manager as root.
