Nice video, it's actually well drawn and made but I don't understand Thai characters.
Taking a brief leave. I got a set of ultra wheels and toyo tires to use and review.

I enjoy scraptops too. It's fun to see what distro they prefer, and then make it run smoothly (in case of hardware quirks). I look at all computers and wonder what distro I could run on them...haha. It's not a good idea for me to cruise Craigslist or eBay. :lol: I have three very old IBM Thinkpads and an equally old Sony Viao that I've kept all these years, from my WinXP days. The Sony and the oldest of my Thinkpads (X20) both run Linux. I need to get a new CPU fan for one of the other Thinkpads, and there's nothing wrong with the third. The old IBM Thinkpads last forevvvveeerrr! And they had awesome keyboards back then!!

OMG, that had me thinking something else completely, and then I got to the end and laughed out loud. :lol: Had to show it to my husband, who also got a laugh out of it. Thanks for sharing, man. :lol:


(For the record, I can parallel park just fine. Lol)

Re: The Mint Café, Special Characters

Post by E1-Beard-0 » Sun Jul 07, 2019 7:03 pm

Hello all,

I’m not at all certain that this question belongs here or not, but as it arises from The Mint Café in the Open Chat forum I’ll start here.

In this thread;
viewtopic.php?f=58&t=829

npap uses some special characters, I’m wondering if npap used a word processor as I did to add these common special characters: #, %, &.

Specifically npap used special characters in the following words among others:
goodnéss, sociále, adventúre.

My question is: Are special characters available through the forum or only by the use of a word processor and cut and paste?

Thank you and respectfully yours Massively ignorant

Look up Character Map in Accessories. You should be able to c&p the appropriate symbol from there.

isemmens,

Thank you for your reply.

After a brief review of the icons along the top of the "Post a Reply" box, I'm not seeing Accessories, so I'm at a bit of a loss to know where else to look.

Respectfully yours, Massively ignorant

I don't know if I have said this lately, but Mint is responsible for me coming back to Linux.
