and the Lorem Ipsum is also there. Unfortunately not the whole epic - could this be supplemented? Then I finally learn it by heart.

I gave up Latin when I left year 9, why would I care what Lorem Ipsum has to say, I'm not even a Catholic. :D

It's a scrambled form of Latin and the meaning is never relevant. It's just a placeholder text. So you can stop caring... or not caring, as you please. :)

The text in question simply makes a strong impression, and has done so for thirty years. Do you happen to know if the generator for LibreOffice still exists? I didn't find it in the LibreOffice extensions. I remember, there was a generator for OpenOffice that did the same in German and English too.

I like to work offline, but it's funny https://loremipsum.io/ :lol:

BTW: https://www.wordhippo.com/what-is/dynam ... a0f8f.html :mrgreen:


A German example of the loremipsum on-line-generator:
Add some oomph to your mockups with a bit of Bavarian. Featuring regular lorem ipsum style Bavarian text, with the option for extra oomph in the form of expletives.

Bavaria ipsum dolor sit amet Radler Schneid vui huift vui ognudelt i mechad dee Schwoanshaxn Zwedschgndadschi a bissal wos gehd ollaweil. Measi a ganze es i mog di fei aasgem, Blosmusi. Schmankal zwoa Ramasuri Edlweiss. Wia vo de Weiznglasl wos, imma hogg di hera Guglhupf! Schorsch Spotzerl schnacksln Weiznglasl vui gschmeidig a ganze auf der Oim, da gibt’s koa Sünd, etza!
Nicht ganz zufriedenstellend.

Thanks. By the way, by "the text in question," I meant, of course, the Lorem. I'm sure mine is as phony as they come...

this laptop I am using is a super duper cat's meow piece of hardware, Win10 of course.
the OEM SSD is setup as RAID, so Linux would not install on it.

found a 2nd drive tray inside of it, and plopped in a new SSD there, and wallah! 19.3 Cinnamon.

I am so much more comfortable with 19.3 Cinnamon than Win10....
I set the laptop up to just boot direct into 19.3 w/o asking me for any instructions.

and yes, the screen display is beautiful, and consistent all the time.

There's nothing to grin about. When I work, I have a neutral gray background. Must be, I live from image editing and drawing, I can't be distracted by gimmicks.

Thanks for the feedback - and of course for you and all forum members:

Merry Christmas !


And if you measure the width of your monitor with a folding rule and give me the exact measurements, I will calculate the effective resolution - as a Christmas gift special to you. :D

Well nice so far with LM19.3 cinnamon upgraded from 19.1. I think that was the easiest upgrade Ive done with LM so far, at least with this one computer i've done. This amd based device could not run 19.2 even from a live usb due to crashes, but great with 19.3. I had updated 19.1 to most recent plus modded with gm10's tools repository including his super improved update manager and already running kernel 5.4.x-x. So perhaps why I am not noticing a whole lot of difference? To me, which programs are preloaded isn't an issue, ie the whole GIMP thing, particularly with an upgrade of existing, one can install whatever, no big deal. Edited to add, the only issue was having to edit /etc/default/grub to my HDPI resolution so I could see the dang boot menu and update grub. Other than that, nothing seems to be newly broke either. My wine apps are fine, my streaming aps are fine etc. so far.So is there anything in LM19.3 I should be looking at in particular?
comadore, pcDOS, hpux, solaris, vms-vax ....blah blah blah..
Yet I'm still a fn nooob

Shutter doesn't play nice with HiDPI. There isn't anything we can do about that.

Too bad, but with some programs, such as Zim, I get along very well without Icons. Even with Mirage, the Icons are not really necessary. Unfortunately, everything is small with Shutter as with GoldenDict.

Unfortunately I lot of apps under Linux still aren't HiDPI friendly. Many qt apps and no gtk apps support it. It's getting better but there are still major ones like gimp and inkscape that need help :)

I have found an alternative Icon Set for GIMP 2.8. This works perfectly. I also modified InkScape (I just don't know how anymore...)

Where did you get the Icon Set and how did you apply it to GIMP?
