Thanks, that solved it :)
If memory serves me well this behavior wasn't like that in earlier releases. Anyway.. no big deal I guess..

[Solved]Updates available keeps showing

Just upgraded from 18.2 to 18.3 Cinnamon.
The Update Manager icon in the tray stays blue and says 4 Updates available, even though in Preferences I choose the safe midway and only levels 1 and 2 to select.
The 4 available updates are all level 4!
I rebooted but it still doesn't say it is up to date..

Wonderful!
What you did different in this file compared to mine I'll have to sort out later this week - at present I'm sleep deprived after an intensive study week, but I had to try out your suggestion before hitting the hay.
Thank you for this :D

Re: fonts don't look good anymore - why?

I don't know about Conky but a troubleshooting tip is to create a new user account and then logon using it. See if the default settings for Conky with a new user don't have the same issues. If they do, then it's a system problem. I tried another user and exactly the same is happening: - in conkyman...

Re: fonts don't look good anymore - why?

you don't alter anything from the .config/fontconfig/fonts.conf you create one if you don't have one and copy the code. then in appearance/fonts you select slight hinting or full your conky is bad fonts because i believe you are not using antialias. probably it's in the concyrc why not post your co...

Re: fonts don't look good anymore - why?

Meanwhile I have re-installed Conky Manager and it still does not open any of the files with the pencil icon to edit manually. Also all files seem to show something when clicking Preview, except for the one I want to use. If someone could get me on the way to sort out perhaps to use conky without th...

Re: fonts don't look good anymore - why?

I should stress the fact that altering the font and its size in the text editor has no effect in how Conky shows the content - it remains unaltered.
Editing from within Conky Manager isn't working.

I see ttf-ubuntu-font-family , is this the fonts you are looking for ?
It is not, because that one is installed already.

[SOLVED]fonts don't look good anymore - why?

Since long I use a conky-file in Conky Manager that I adapted the way I like it; mainly for text / reminders of shortcuts and such. The font was really nice, but since a long time ago this changed - if I recall well, it's since upgrading from Mint 17 Cinnamon to a higher 17 (at present I have 18.2 C...

Re: 18.2 Sonya guest account accesses documents and pictures

Users of an upgraded 18.2 should at now not switch to LightDM or at least disable the guest account at once. This is a serious security hole in case of a local attacker. (Fresh installs of 18.2 are not affected.) How do I disable this guest account? When i go to Administration / Users and Groups it...

Re: 18.2 Sonya guest account accesses documents and pictures

In the starting post you wrote, that this is an upgraded system. How did you upgrade exactly? I ask, because the official upgrade path is only open since a few hours. How did you install LightDM (in case of an official upgrade). And again: You wrote, that you went in Nemo to /home/myaccount. If I d...

[Solved]18.2 Sonya guest account accesses documents and pictures

After upgrading to Mint 18.2 I was curious to try the guest account that's available automatically. A nice feature - but to my surprise, in that account it was possible to go to some files in /home/pc_owner/pictures and also in /home/pc_owner/downloads. Isn't the home of the pc-owner supposed to be ...
