Hello, 1+j.

Welcome to the Linux Mint forum. :)
It is true that the forum software strictly limits the size of image files, which you can upload to the forum directly.
Yet, there is a way around it (workaround):
Upload the image file to a free file hoster (like e.g. imgur.com). Post the link to the uploaded image file here. Goal achieved.

Best regards,
Karl

Hi, Pjotr.

1+j submitted the post in the LMDE forum. Assuming that the OS is question is really LMDE 4, the question raises whether the known bug, which affects Mint 20, also affects LMDE 4.
