Re: Some webpages opening partially

Hi I'm not an expert, but I think it might a be a good idea to check the Firewall, check for any "weird" rules, maybe try turning it off, if the problem still persists just turn it back on then may be check DNS server settings, see if anything weird going on in there i think xed /etc/resolv.conf & i...

Re: Site Specific Browser

There's already a stripped down, customisable browser in linux. It's called Lynx. no, thats a text-mode browser, & I already have shortcuts for my basic not so modern sites using "Links 2", it opens instantly & looks exactly the way i want it to, obviously you meant to ridicule me & not to actually...

Re: Site Specific Browser

It is the responsibility of individual sites to provide that kind of facility. no its not, we'r not talking about mobiles here, & im not talking about using their api, more like a stripped down web browser Do you really expect the devs to build SSBs for even a tiny fraction of the 1.8 billion web s...

Hello I'd like to suggest making a Mint "Site Specific Browser" mini app, i think google chrome & GNOME Web didnt do good job when it comes to what the users want, because the user want to feel like he's running an app not a browser but at same time must run smoother than a regular browser (not an E...

Re: Firefox struggling but Vivaldi is fine

if you mean slow at "launching", yeah, firefox launches slower than my other browsers, by millisecs , i don’t mind that apart from launching performance seems great to me, goes without saying that add-ons can affect both launching speed & overall performance I think firefox always becomes slower aft...

Re: Language Learning Software

Is there any language learning software, similar to Babbel & Rosetta Stone, for Linux? Any recommendations will be appreciated. Rosetta Stone runs ok with wine but the Mic is undetectable, everything else works great I suggest you use Anki , there are a lot of decks for most languages & you can lea...

This should do it, run this in a terminal window:

Code: Select all

dconf write /org/mate/settings-daemon/plugins/housekeeping/active 'false'
dconf write /org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/housekeeping/active 'false'
That did the trick, thank you very much!

Re: What is your favorite internet search engine and why?

I also use DuckDuckGo, because i like their terms of service, i resort to google occasionally,i think google's engine is smarter, i rarely need to rephrase with google, but its too mainstream for me -check the username- & i like siding with underdogs.

Re: Does having a large amount of Dependencies & libraries affect Mint's performance?

Nemo and Dolphin are going to run slower than Thunar in an Xfce system but it's not because of libraries per se. They're more powerful (esp. Dolphin) and have more features. Also, the file manager is actually very integrated with the DE it came with, and other file managers are rarely going to run ...

Hi jhalpin.

It's possible your sound is muted. Move your mouse around down there and you might faintly spot the icon.
yeah ,depending on your panel's color, the icon can go invisible when muted

if all fails check out Volti, I use it, its way better than the default

good luck.

Does having a large amount of Dependencies & libraries affect Mint's performance?

Hello I'm wondering whether installing many software that require extra dependencies can cause slow downs to the whole system, for example i use Xfce but i use Nemo & like having Dolphin around, I realize than when I open Nemo it takes an extra sec to start & I don't mind that, my question is: if i ...

Re: Are Linux distributions really so different from one another?

They only talk about the themes and the variants on which programs come preinstalled on which particular distribution, and over as they walk you through the interface, which is usually just a theme changer or maybe they take you on a tour of the preinstalled applications.
