Is there any way to rename files from a spreadsheet?

Mint XFCE 19. I am aware of the fantastic bulk rename tool already provided by default. But what I want to do is rename files from a spreadsheet. I have a list of new filenames in a spreadsheet column. I want to replace the old filenames with the cell contents. I wanted to know if there is any way t...

Re: Gmail account stays signed in despite clearing browsing history and shutting off computer since moving to Linux

So I'm used to staying logged into Chrome and thus any google service despite whatever I do with Cookies. It appears judging from the responses that if you don't log in to Chrome and don't use sync deleting cookies should be enough. If I sign out of sync it signs me out of my gmail and if I sign in...

Re: Gmail account stays signed in despite clearing browsing history and shutting off computer since moving to Linux

Under advanced settings the default is for Chrome to stay on all the time, even when it's off. Untick that setting. Google is like a parasite you just can't get rid of. Can't find it. Which one is it? Under: Settings, Advanced, System, "Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed"...

Network manager issues

Mint xfce 19 here. My WiFi died recently so by the time I get a new one, I decided to connect the internet cable directly to use the internet. I added a new DSL/PPPOE connection using the Network Manager GUI and the internet starting working again within minutes. But the internet stopped working onc...

Don't you need to also clear cookies to get what your want? It's a cookie I believe that keeps you signed in.
Cleared cookies and everything, yet Gmail stays signed in

Re: Gmail account stays signed in despite clearing browsing history and shutting off computer since moving to Linux

You need to sign out of Chrome itself. Easiest way is on the new tab page right click your avatar in the top-right corner. If you sign in to any google service running Chrome you sign into them all. There are a few chrome extensions that can automate this for you - e.g. https://chrome.google.com/we...

Gmail account stays signed in despite clearing browsing history and shutting off computer since moving to Linux

Hi. At the end of the day when I am about to switch off Chrome and my computer, I delete the history with all the checkboxes selected and from the 'beginning of time'. However when I log back in the next morning I see my gmail is still signed in. I have never enabled autofill and this happens to any...

In either of them enable regex search, then e.g.
search: how.*doing

How to search and replace using wildcard in Linux?

How do I use Wildcards for search and replace in Linux either with the text editor or with LibreOffice Writer? Either works for me. Eg
"Hello how are you doing today?",
I want to replace everything between the word 'how' and 'doing'

I tried 'how*doing' but that did not work

How to get rid of the screen asking for password when the screen goes black due to inactivity?

Linux Mint 19 XFCE. When I dont use the screen for 10 minutes or so, the monitor goes to sleep and when I turn it back on, it asks for password. How do I get rid of this annoyance of having to enter my password? Also where do I change the setting for the duration of inactivity after which the screen...

Re: How do I make custom emblems bigger?

apt install nemo Maybe also load a Mint 19 MATE live USB and take it for a spin, see if you don't like it better. It's less stripped down in features than Xfce but runs nearly the same (costs a bit more memory). I did. Didn't really like it very much. MATE gave me a lot of troubles on Ubuntu 18.04....

Re: How do I make custom emblems bigger?

Xfce doesn't support this. Thunar not at all, while the desktop will load a custom icon for a folder from a file called folder.jpg placed inside of that folder. If you want it for regular folders you'll need to use a different file manager (e.g. nemo as you did in Cinnamon). Alright. How do I switc...
