How to make LibreOffice start with a specific theme?

I have installed a global dark theme but recently when I had to edit a 'doc' file, I noticed the icons of the program are impossible to see. Choosing another set didn't change much, so I did a Google search and found this answer: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/103944/how-do-you-turn-off-t...

Re: how to make Quora to stop show adult pictures on their home page?

+1 for uBlock Origin, if these images are ads. I've never heard of Quora before, so whether uBO can fix the problem or not, you will have to test it yourself.

Where does Krusader store its config files (Cinnamon, not KDE)?

I downloaded Krusader and made all the settings I needed but now that I wanna store them for future use, I can't find them. They're not in ~/.confg nor they are in ~/.local/share. And most definitely they're not in any of the locations mentioned here: https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/extragear-utils/k...

Re: When do we get Firefox 66.0.1?

I assume that the Mozilla Firefox developers give a much higher priority to fixing an open security vulnerability, than fixing a nasty technical annoyance. Which is a wrong policy because from that vulnerability will suffer only a handful of people, whereas most won't even notice it or know about i...

Re: Mint 19.1 long booting time after installing nvidia driver

Thank you!! I disabled the onboard graphics in BIOS and Mint booted up normally. All the other anomalies seem to be gone as well! This was so strange because I wouldn't imagine the graphics can affect the ability to install updates. Edit the title of your first post and add a "[SOLVED]" in front of...

Re: Moved from 10 year old to 6 year old computer. From dual to quad core. No noticeable difference in speed.

Ideally, I would like a computer so fast that it provides the answers I seek before I have asked my question. While I am waiting for that to becomes a possibility, I will have to rebuild my current computer if I ever come to think that it is slow :) All the hardware and speeds would mean nothing, i...

Re: sudo update-grub is not working correctly for me

Wow, first off thanks for the fast response! That looks a bit too complex for my skill level, Is that the only way to fix grub? It's not hard at all. Once upon a time I used to think that too but after the first time I tried it, I changed my mind. It only looks hard and complex but it's not. ;)

Re: What's with the name "Wayland" everywhere?

I always assumed the Star Wars reference came first. Considering it started in 1991 with Heir To The Empire , I think it's reasonable to assume it was the first one. I've never been a fan of Star Wars (I'm a fan of other "Star" movies and tv shows - Stargate, Star Trek), so idk about these movies b...

Re: sudo update-grub is not working correctly for me

IDK what exactly you've done to grub but here's the right way to fix it:
https://howtoubuntu.org/how-to-repair-r ... tu-live-cd

And if you're gonna use grub-customizer, use version 5.0.6. This is the only version that works best with Mint 18.3 without causing any errors.

When do we get Firefox 66.0.1?

When do we get Firefox 66 for Mint? Antergos users already have it and 65 has a nasty bug which I'm hoping it has been fixed in 66. Synaptic reads the latest available Firefox is 65.

Re: Steam client prevents screen timeout

Sounds like a bug in Steam related to your distro (Mint 19, right?). I have no problems whatsoever with putting the computer to sleep and the screen turns itself off when 15 minutes expire. If you do a Google search for "linux steam client prevents sleep", you'll see you're not the only one with thi...

Re: Running Mint from a USB stick

I'm not really sure how your proposed installation setup would differ in practice or in effect from booting to the Mint "live" environment and running the installer process from that. It would differ because if you run the live env. from the real machine, the installer will detect the storage devic...
