Re: Firefox upgrade?

If your source is still showing FF 50, then you must have messed up sources cuz my sources show FF 65 as the latest version and I'm not even using the latest Mint. :roll:

Are there any limits about how many programs autostart can run?

Are there any limits about how many programs autostart can run in principle? I downloaded an appimage of a program called ScreenCloud and set it up to start with the system but it won't. So I built it from source - still won't run. I followed its developer's advice to edit the '.desktop' file for th...

hostname is "rado-mint18" but in hosts file 127.0.1.1 was "mint18 mint18", so I changed it to "rado-mint18"
It seems that this solved the problem, so thanks to everyone who responded in the topic. :)

The number after the point in Mint versions

Does anyone know what the number after the point in Mint versions mean (.1, .2, .3)? Does it mean that it was released in the 3rd quarter of the year or is it something else?

Re: Window Controls are too small

The size of these buttons depends on the font size. Look how big are mine, altough I did it not for the buttons size but because I wanted large titles in the title bar:

Re: sudo unable to resolve host

And I take it your hostname (the bit after @ in a command prompt) is "rado-mint18"? Seems likely that rado-mint18 is not named in /etc/hosts. The OOTB behaviour is to have your hostname resolve to 127.0.1.1 on Ubuntu/Mint. I.e., you'd in /etc/hosts have a line 127.0.1.1 rado-mint18 If you already d...

Re: How to get a Debian repo key?

Flameshot is available for installation in your Software Manager in the main menu. There is no need to go to the Debian repository. You already have another Screenshot program installed by default. Nope, it's not. Typing flameshot in the software manager returns nothing: https://i.postimg.cc/Z5gTNK...

[SOLVED] sudo unable to resolve host

For a few days now every time I use the sudo command I get this message "unable to resolve host rado-mint18". The tasks run just fine despite this message but it's getting annoying and I'd like to remove it somehow. I found an older topic on this forum but it didn't help me at all. I assume you'll n...

There's a program I wanna get for Mint 18 but it's available only in the Debian repo. It also has too many dependencies for me to download manually, so I was hoping to get it via the command "sudo apt-get install flameshot". I tried adding the repo to my software sources but it displays a message th...

[SOLVED] How to make updates of level 1 and 2 automatic?

I'm going to install Mint on my sister's computer but she's not tech savvy and has no idea what to do when the update manager displays available updates. But I can't find a way to make the system automatically update security packages and level 1 and 2 in general.

If it really worked like that for him he probably tweaked that somewhere, although I wasn't aware you even could.

Re: Making alt+tab work like in Windows?

Why not just rebind to alt+tab then? Although on Windows the feature you're looking for is actually Win+M (Super+M), I have no idea why your alt+tab would have behaved like that. I've thought about this but I can't find the combination alt+tab in the hotkeys settings which makes me think it's integ...

Re: Making alt+tab work like in Windows?

Ummmm, you must have changed something, because Windows has always used Alt-Tab to circle thru the existing apps that are running, and which ever one you stop on, becomes the active window. as for changing how it works, that has been explained. but I prefer to use the Windows Key + D and that makes...

Re: I have just be reminded why I ditched Windwoes

I ditched Windows for good, after Micro$oft did their next move (indirectly, this time) to make me install Windows 10. But I'm a dumb and stubborn donkey and I wouldn't install Windows 10, even if they paid me 1 million dollars, so I ditched Windows for good.
