Re: Can I type special characters with Alt+Keypad like on Windows?

You can also enter special characters using the "Compose" key. To set which key is the Compose key, click Menu, Preferences, Keyboard, Layouts, Options, Position of Compose key , and select which key you want to use as the Compose key. Then you can hold down the Compose key, and enter special chara...

Re: Nightingale won´t play mp3s

SOLVED_Nightingale won´t play mp3s

SOLVED: but only to the extent that I decided to switch to Guayadeque for mp3 playing, lyrics editing, etc. However I kept a semi-working install of Nightingale because while it doesn´t play mp3s, in my Library view it has a small icon next to any mp3 that has embedded lyrics. Since my main use of l...

Re: Oracle VirtualBox didnt run a virtual machine in linux mint 18.3

Ive hit this issue before with upgrades of virtualbox. The problem is that the driver for VB in the kernel does not match up with what is installed. I got this when upgrading a kernel and using an older version of VB then the kernel. What I did was make sure I had the newest kernel and then downloa...

SOLVED Mint 18.3 Mate VirtualBox

Two key elements to my SOLUTION were installing the 5.2.8 VB Extensions (after I got it to open my Win10 VM) and getting past my hesitancy to update the Kernel to 4.13.0-37-generic. Update manager had been nagging me to do so even before I switched from 18.3 with Cinnamon to 18.3 with MATE. That hes...

Re: Nemo replaced by Nautilus leads to no boot

I'm not sure what happened but here I am reinstalling LM18.3. What happened is that you tried to replace the standard file manager that came with your DE. That caused stuff to break. I've downloaded the MATE 18.3 iso and it's probably finished burning onto the flash drive. Do I need to be aware of ...

Re: Nemo replaced by Nautilus leads to no boot

Is the jumbling of folders a known issue? No. If you have reinstalled your system, but kept your home, the problem might possibly reappear. In this case a fresh new user account for testing might help to investigate into the issue. I've downloaded the MATE 18.3 iso and it's probably finished burnin...
