Re: software secured by the additional password

You can possibly achieve something like that using extended ACLs, using setfacl command, but you'd have to limit access to the setfacl command itself as well because that's usable by anyone with su access. Basically, you've created a hole in the system by allowing non-admins unrestricted root access...

Re: Build essential on Linux Mint 20

This can happen when you have another APT front-end open, like you're doing another install with apt at the same time or have Synaptic Package Manager open. Though it would normally give one such message and then abort., not keep repeating it. I suggest you try rebooting the PC and then try running ...

Re: Unable to change folders et files icons with cinnamon

smurphos had the right suspicion, there are files in your home directory that you don't own. From the output of the gio command: (gio info:23953): GVFS-WARNING **: 22:31:44.494: can't init metadata tree /home/martin/.local/share/gvfs-metadata/home: open: Permission non accordée that means you're not...

Re: Unable to change folders et files icons with cinnamon

This isn't an issue where reinstalling the software is going to help. Cinnamon isn't the problem either; folder icons are Nemo, your file manager. You could try resetting Nemo preferences completely: rm -rf ~/.config/nemo ~/.local/share/nemo dconf reset -f /org/nemo/ nemo -q Then re-open Nemo from y...

Re: bash command not found in Linux Mint 20

This is a known issue identified during beta on LM20. It wasn't deemed a blocking issue for final release and will be fixed through a package upgrade once the issue is solved.

Re: Can't type in Whisker menu search box after upgrading to 20

Did you change any settings of the menu or customize it in any way? Is it immediately reproducible after booting your system or does it take longer before you can reproduce it? Maybe worth a try to create a new user account as a test. Log in to that and see if you can reproduce the same on that. If ...

Re: Can't type in Whisker menu search box after upgrading to 20

I haven't noticed such on a fresh install. What does apt policy xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin tell you? You should have version 2.4.3-1 installed from ubuntu focal repository. If that looks okay, perhaps try removing the whiskermenu settings file ~/.config/xfce4/panel/whiskermenu-1.rc or rename it to som...

ubuntu-make is in the repositories. I think you can just do apt install ubuntu-make and don't need this backport PPA.

Re: vlc appears broken under MInt 20

Try removing your VLC user preferences (reinstalling doesn't touch user preferences). The directories ~/.config/vlc and ~/.local/share/vlc. Either rename those directories or just delete them with this command: rm -rfv ~/.config/vlc ~/.local/share/vlc If VLC still doesn't start after that, try start...

Yes, as I wrote earlier Firefox won't offer to add a search engine you've already added.
