Re: One thing stops me...

Welcome to the Linux Mint forums. For the frist, that's an option to change in your web browser. In Firefox it may be a simple as opening Preferences and at the bottom under the "Browsing" heading disable smooth scrolling.

Re: Linux Mint 19 - Software Manager Error - Flatpak (Flathub)

I guess the fix is still in the pipeline. You can use the workaround to install the program you want with the flatpak command run from the terminal. See example here: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=271907#p1486599

Re: Suse sold for 2.5 Billion Dollars

Quite sure karlchen. Red Hat is a publicly held company. As in, its shares are traded on the stock exchange. You too can own a piece of Red hat :) SUSE on the other hand is a privately held company. SUSE's 2017 revenue was 304 million USD. Red Hat's was 2.9 billion USD. So Red Hat is about 10 times ...

Flatpaks don't affect your operating system. They are isolated from it.

Re: Upgrading Filezilla

There's a bug in Linux Mint 19's Software Manager that causes problems with installing flatpaks. A fix is in the pipeline.

For now you can use workaround to install Filezilla flatpak with this command run from the terminal:
flatpak install flathub org.filezillaproject.Filezilla

Re: YubiKey support for login on Mint 19

Is it enough to install libu2f-udev instead? That looks to have the 70-u2f.rules file. See files list on https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/libu2f-udev I'm not clear on how it is a regression. That package doesn't exist on Ubuntu 16.04 and on Ubuntu 16.04 the udev package doesn't seem to have the Yu...

Re: YubiKey support for login on Mint 19

Don't have YubiKey to test but Linux Mint 19 and 18.x both use udev from the Ubuntu repositories without modification. There doesn't appear to have been a udev rule for YubiKey U2F in Ubuntu 16.04 either (base for Linux Mint 18.x). I couldn't match any of the rules from your GitHub against the rules...

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

MATE will at least be available from the Debian repository. There's been talk about Linux Mint also providing latest MATE packages, if it is easy enough to automate building them. It's not been made official yet what will be done.

Re: Respin Mint for an opensource project

Can you clarify on what changes you would be making to Linux Mint's ISO? "to help new users get the required kernel/dependencies" is too unspecific. With some more information from you I can take this request further. We're responsible for the quality of our ISOs and our name guarantees that an ISO ...

LMDE is an interesting project, because it has a small audience but one of the most passionate.

Re: Linux Mint Debian Edition 3

Upgrading from LMDE 2 and then trying to downgrade and remove everything from LMDE 3 that isn't in Debian is likely going to be a major headache. Just install Debian if that is what you want. The importance of LMDE to Linux Mint was covered in a recent blog post: https://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=3590 T...

Indeed, there are many such options. I use a Firebird wallet from Smartcaze. It's metal and stores 6-7 cards. Chips can't be read while the wallet is closed.

Debian 9 has Cinnamon 3.2. LMDE 3 has Cinnamon 3.8. LMDE 3 will get new releases of Cinnamon in the future while Debian 9 is, of course, frozen and won't get new releases. Besides that LMDE 3 comes with the Xapps and Mint tools that aren't available on Debian 9. Along with other customization like t...

We could trigger creation of ~/.gvfs by running sudo xed (which you shouldn't of course, but as one way to reproduce it).

Re: Update manager

I'm not clear on that it matters any that ~/.cache/dconf is owned by root. If you google that issue you find multiple programs that can cause this.

According to one of the devs the ~/.gvfs directory resets after logout/login.

Re: Resolution is set wrong

I don't know if this helps for VMWare but for VirtualBox I can't set the display resolution with Xfce configuration manager, it just crashes. So I set resolution with xrandr from command line. That works on VirtualBox. For example to set 1024x768 resolution: xrandr --output VGA-1 --mode 1024x768 VGA...

On a fresh install the ~/.dbus and ~/.cache/dconf directories don't exist on first login. After 10 minutes they appear to be created by the first run of mintupdate auto-refresh and get owner by root. Logout/login doesn't solve it. After changing ownership of both to the user this does not appear to ...
