Re: Mate 18.3 Freezes During Copying Files

Thanks.

I'm running 4.15.0.32 already but in 18.3 x64bit. I will try your 'fix' next time it happens and post again.
Perhaps it is time to move on to 19?

Mate 18.3 Freezes During Copying Files

I use an external HDD as a back up and copy some files manually across. Usually there are no problems with this but recently the process freezes at random while copying. By freezing I mean the cursor disappears and none of the keyboard commands do anything. My system is a triple boot with Mate, Kubu...

Re: Keyboard not Working after Login

The problem occurred because 'only use long key presses' was selected under Keyboard/Accessibility.
When this is enabled it comes with a beep for some reason.

I did not enable this deliberately - just why it happened I have no idea. Hopefully it will not recur.

[Solved] Keyboard not Working after Login

I'm running 18.3 Mate on a triple boot desktop (Mint, Kubuntu, W10). The keyboard (Cherry USB with numeric keypad) allows me to login. After that I just get a loud beep every time I press any key. It doesn't matter if I am trying to use a browser, or TB, or a text editor. I tried a different USB bu...

Re: Hard Drive Expansion

Thanks! It's just a simple alphabetical index using Dolphin. If I add a new 3TB disk drive to the existing one, can I span the data across both - as if I had a single drive? The partitions are complicated because it is a triple boot system with Windows 10 and Kubuntu. Mint is the default. I am not g...

Hard Drive Expansion

I run 18.3 Mate. My 3TB HDD is 2/3 full. I will need to expand capacity soon whilst retaining the existing indexing system. Is it possible to add, say, another 3TB HDD, and do this? If so, how? Or, would it be simpler to buy a 6TB drive and copy over? I am nervous of very large drives because of the...

Kate and Preview [Solved]

I'm using Kate to develop a small website. I've been trying to install a preview plugin without success in Mate 18.3.

Am I right in thinking that the Tool View/Show Preview available for Kate in Kubuntu does not work in Mint Mate?

Re: [SOLVED] Simple HTML editor

An image can be embedded or linked as you choose. To embed an image you place code like that below in the text where you want the image to appear <img src="somepicture.jpg"> Thanks, Pogo, but I must have missed something obvious. How does the program know where to look for "somepicture.jpg"? There ...

Re: [SOLVED] Simple HTML editor

Yes. Should I use the drawings code as links in the text, or the drawings themselves?

Re: Simple HTML editor

I installed Seamonkey long ago, and don't remember if I had to manually add it to the Menu or what. It appears in the Menu on my 17.3 Cinnamon install as "Mozilla Build of Seamonkey." At any rate in MATE you can right click on the Menu button, then click Edit menu and add it manually. Done and dust...

Re: Simple HTML editor

Thanks to both.

SeaMonkey it is! The Composer section is just what I need.

It's not difficult to type 'seamonkey' in terminal, but is there an easy way to add it to Applications in Mate 18.3?

Rhythmbox Radio Problem

I run Mate 18.3 kernel 4.15.0-33 in W64.

Some radio programmes - mostly US music or college channels - run normally.
Until about 3 weeks ago I could also get UK radio stations e.g. BBC. Now I cannot - I just get a message about missing plug-ins.

I'd be grateful for advice.
