My adult stepson is a gamer and refuses to even acknowledge the existence of anything other than Windows.
I really wanna see his face when I show him how quite a few games run better with higher FPS with Linux than they do with Windows. :lol:

Re: If you want a divorce

It's a contract. I have never been married and even I know that. Which is why if some day I get married, I'll want from him or her to sign a pre-marital contract that he or she will not have any property or financial claims from me in case of divorce, so that I can keep everything I have in my poss...

Re: I dread what is comming

A computer should work for me; not me for it. That's true but it's also true if you want it to work for you and the way you want it to work, you'll have to work for it for a while in order to set it to work the way you want (which includes cleaning it of dust from time to time). And for gratitude i...

Re: Mint immediately goes back to sleep right after I login (after waking from sleep)

All I can think of are possible ways to circumvent it:
1. Open power management and disable autosleep (30 minutes by default).
2. Disable asking for password when waking up.
See what happens then - whether it still goes back to sleep or not.

Why don't you do what I did a year ago? I installed Mint on the user's computer who was (and still is) stupid enough to not know the difference and then installed him theme to make it look like Windows. He knows nothing about extensions (he uses only FB, movies and YouTube) and doesn't even know wha...

Re: When did you come to Linux?

I don't remember the exact date, tbh. It was the time between Ubuntu 9 and Ubuntu 10. That much I remember cuz when I started using Ubuntu 9, shortly after that Ubuntu 10 was released. Then they started uglifying Ubuntu's interface, so I used Debian for a while. After Debian - Mint 16 for a while, a...

Re: So if the Linux Kernel is written in C, what IDE do they use?

So I take it the core Linux Kernel is written in C and Assembly (and C++?). Hm, I thought that if one thing is written in a given language, then the rest should be in the same language. Meaning that if the kernel is written in python, that explains why the OS is written in python (mint). And now yo...

Re: Mint Minimal ISO (Yes like Ubuntu)

You can remove programs you don't need or want, after installing Linux Mint. You can but I wouldn't recommend it. I've already tried that and removing too much (about 10 programs I never use) mandatorily breaks the system - Synaptic keeps crying about broken packages and if you reboot, there's no t...

Re: Problem installing wine

If the game supports Linux, you don't need Wine to play it. If you have it purchased on Steam, all you have to do is install Steam and download the game - Steam will automatically install its Linux version. As for other games, Wine has never helped me play Windows games on Linux. Windows programs - ...

Re: Memory leak in Cinnamon 4.0.9 (Mint 19.1)

I had the same problem with Mint immediately after fresh installation. A system reboot did the trick for a while but when I installed Discord 2 days later, the problem returned and the rest of the 40% of the CPU were immediately taken by it. So I installed back 18.3 and now everything's working so s...

Did you try restarting Cinnamon to see what would happen? Sometimes that fixes problems.

Re: Unable to mount NTFS hard disk

Live USB with Mint was the first thing I tried - didn't help.

The problem was solved in a Facebook group with this command:

Code: Select all

sudo ntfsfix -b -d /dev/sda1
After that the disk was mounted without a single problem.

But do you have a screenshot? I'm curious at your theme.. The windows themselves are not transparent. Only the panel and the context menus are. The menu is somewhat transparent, but not fully. The theme is Cinnamox-Rhino by smurphos. https://i.postimg.cc/Zq4XRDcJ/2019-02-23-05-57-42.png And why wou...

Re: How can I change the desktop font size?

I found them. It seems the people who translated 19.1 made a mess with translations which completely changed the location of the feature I was looking for. In 18.3 it was "Шрифтове" which was placed nearly at the end of the list with settings and was easier to find. Now it's called "Избор на шрифтов...

18.3 has a fonts option to change the fonts and their sizes for desktop, documents and stuff but I can't see that option in 19.1. How can I change them? And why would they remove it in the first place? Speaking of removed options, there are other options that seem to have disappeared from 19.1. Such...
