[Solved - sort of] Added a monitor to 18.3 Cinnamon and lost all fonts

I just added a DVI monitor to this box, in addition to an HDMI TV. When I turned the box back on, all the system fonts are garbled, and completely missing on the desktop. Removing the monitor didn't fix it. I didn't find anything searching the forums, but then I never can. Anybody point towards a fix?

Re: Anyone got any interesting hobbies?

I have a long-time medical permit to grow that stuff that's illegal most everywhere :D

Have developed quite a setup in a spare room - that's all the space it takes.

And, of course, next month everybody else here gets to grow their own , too.

Many more people will be :D :D :D :D

Re: Whats everyone currently listening to?

Just found the absolute best music discovery site ever - with samples and links directly to play on Spotify. http://www.acclaimedmusic.net/album/A50.htm That's the page I found (by accident) - exploring the whole site is a really good time. Samples of everything (maybe everything?) and links to list...

Re: Wordpress - I'm missing something here

Ok, that's enough of that nonsense.

The learning curves for those CMS thingies is way steeper than learning (or remembering for me) HTML and CSS. Holy cow, they made me feel stupid. They were all so complicated!

Oh, my, Atom is so relaxing... :D

Different themes, different workspaces

Can I do this somehow?
Set up Cinnamon so I can tell what workspace I'm in from the theme I've set?

[Solved] Wordpress - I'm missing something here

Wordpress.org vs. wordpress.com ?? How do I install Wordpress.org with the Software Manager? It says it's installed, but where is it? The comments also say wordpress.com is better? Lots of talk about tarballs, Apache, MySQL, php; what does that have to do with the Software Manager? I just want to le...

Re: Confused by Keyboard Shortcuts

I ended up just over-writing the "already in use" ones cuz I realized I would never use the pre-set ones.
Was worried I might "break" something.
Thanks.

[Solved] Confused by Keyboard Shortcuts

When I look at the lists of existing shortcuts, I'm not seeing what the actual keys are - for example, under "Sound and Media", the top right panel lists "Volume down" and the lower panel (bindings) shows "Audio lower volume" but there's no keys shown, whereas under other headings an actual key comb...

[Solved] Can't change permissions or owners recursively

I have a group of folders, saved from an old disk, that I'm having trouble getting at. They show as owned by "root" I can't change that in Nemo, even as root I can change that on the CLI, but it doesn't have any effect on Nemo. I went in and added myself to the "root" group: now I can change permiss...

[Solved] Cannot change Imagemagick as default app for PDFs

This is a plague. ImageMajick is behaving like malware - I cannot disassociate it from PDF files. The solution posted in viewtopic.php?f=90&t=258211&p=1503819&hilit=cannot+change#p1503819 isn't working for me. I cannot find such a file as "pdf=display-im6" anywhere on this box. And of course, I can'...

Re: I've gone over to the Dark Side

I get you, but so far, I'm just exploring, and for now am not worried about that. If the browser system doesn't work well to begin with, then security will never be an issue as no one will use it. So far. the translator-function is not always working - but it's actually still "Day One." wow. What I ...

I've gone over to the Dark Side

I've installed the Yandex browser (beta) and I am definitely impressed. These folks are trying. And it's refreshing that Vlad the Impaler II will now get the same info as the NSA. (Not sure if that's serious or not, you know?) But the point is that the Yandex thing seems really well thought out. Loo...

And thanks to someone at LinuxQuestions, I discovered that in this new Mint installation multiple clients for transmission were installed.

Now solved.

Re: Cannot use qbittorrent cuz transmission

Well, now. I just tried my other box; it has a clean, fresh install of Sylvia/Cinnamon on it too. Both boxes are on new disks. Neither box can access torrents with qBittorrent. Or Deluge. Or anything but Transmission. (Which has been "purged" from one box.) I'm not happy here, cuz I don't understand.

[Solved] Cannot use qbittorrent cuz transmission

All of a sudden when I try to get a torrent, the default app is transmission, not qbittorrent.
even after I removed and purged transmission and made sure that qbittorrent is the default for torrents
what is going on?

This is one more hassle in a long string of issues with Mint lately.

Mint 19 Cinn - can't create launchers on desktop

Just installed, and been going through Piotr's tips. Well done, sir. (This came along just in time as I messed up 18.3 really bad and was going to have to re-install - even Timeshift wouldn't restore. No idea what I did, either, it seemed to be cumulative.) However, I've just discovered that I can't...
