[SOLVED] Install openscad from their repository

Hello I am using Mint 18.3, and saw that openscad from Ubuntu is quite old. One solution is to use their downloads page where they provide a Ubuntu 16.04 deb line: deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/t-paul/xUbuntu_16.04/ ./ When I add it to the list, and update the cache, it only sh...

date time special format

Hello

In the Calendar applet, which displays the date, we can use a custom format.
As my dashboard is vertical, I would like to knowif there is a special symbol to insert a line feed.

Default date vertically is HH\nMM. I would like to have HH\nMM\nday/month
But it doesn't seems to work.

Regards

A very satisfying trio of Linux distros.. based on (Ubuntu, Debian, and Arch). :D Hello GeneC, I am interested in knowing what would lead you to choose Sparky over Mint (or the opposite). The description you gave ...

Re: Issue to install software

Viewing viewtopic.php?f=91&t=55382, I did the opposite and activate PolicyKit.

To check on the error, you should know that "Software Manager" is called mintInstaller; Launching it in a terminal allows you to have the "real" error to post in forums.
