I don't have a MATE environment to test on but in general, this type of thing can be set using gsettings. Try this: gsettings set org.mate.panel.toplevel:/bottom/ size 45 That should set the value you want. For more details, see http://wiki.mate-desktop.org/docs:gsettings.

Have a look in: /var/log/apt/history.log and you should see all the packages that were removed. You should be able to re-install them.

I've been thinking and actually you can reinstall evolution and use some data recovery tools. You might want to take a look at : sleuthkit, foremost and Data-Recovery Linux

You should do a couple of changes in your BIOS. First you should disable boot safe, look for it in your BIOS, then you should activate CSM to let all the boot devices be visible (at least in my asus x550c) then disable fast boot. I think with those changes you should be ready to go. Wipe your F*?-ng Windows and install that linux distro you are willing to ...

Figured out the cause for the mess: It was the new (compiled) version of GTK+ (3.12). Because I already had another GTK+ 3 (3.10.8), the new version had some conflicts. So to fix the problem, I just removed the compiled version of GTK+. You can do it either of the following ways: First way (of uninstalling a compiled program (in this case GTK+)): 1. ...

Changing the grub command line is the right way to do it, but the problem is that acpi_backlight=vendor is wrong. The correct one is: acpi_osi=Linux It still always worked for me on a lot of laptops.

For all of you running a Laptop with NVIDIA Card and who are still not able to get the f* function keys for brightness to work, just follow the steps below. It worked very well for my system (Samsung q45, Intel Dualcore T7100 @ 1,8Ghz , Nvidia Geforce 8400M G 512) running Linux Mint 17. In command line, type in: sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf You will have ...

Ok, the next few boots identified the problem. There were increasing problems reading the memory, and eventually the video never even turned on for the bios power-on self test. I opened up the case -- the graphics card and AGP slot have a scorch mark covering 2-3 connectors. The card is busted, probably ditto for the main board.

I was able to fix the issue by updating my kernel to 3.17.1-031701. Before doing it, though, you might want to check your own kernel version by using uname -a. For 32-bit systems: $ wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.17.1-utopic/linux-headers-3.17.1-031701_3.17.1-031701.201410150735_all.deb $ wget ...

Several executables are either missing from your system or cannot be found because your PATH is incorrect: -python3 which is why /usr/lib/command-not-found cannot be executed. - cat (/bin/cat), which is why command-not-found is executed - id (/usr/bin/id), as used in the standard /etc/profile The first is a link and its availability somewhat less of a ...

This appears to be a bug in gnome-terminal. I've just upgraded to 3.14.0-1 (from Debian testing) and the beep during startup and exit of tmux in gnome-terminal is gone. Therefore it's likely to have been fixed since 3.6.2-0ubuntu1 - or there's an Ubuntu patch causing it (which Linux Mint might also use).

/media/ is a stub where most modern distributions mount removable media when they are plugged in, e. g. USB hard drives, optical media, flash drives, etc. One of them you have mounted is identified as HDD2-200GB which is appearing as a 12.5GB filesystem, which is full. /mnt/ is another stub which is generally used for permanently mounted filesystems. ...

After randomly messing around with KDE themes for an unrelated issue, I have finally realized out why the XTerm background keeps being set as white only under KDE and not under any other desktop environment The reason: KDE theme colors. If you go to System Settings -> Application Appearance, under Colors, go to the Colors Tab, in the "Common Colors" color ...

The issue is related at KDE environment. I have the same problem with MintMAYA KDE_version. When I worked with Mint9_Gnome a very useful pop-up appeared when a certain level of low-power was reached (auto-configured out_of_the_box on fresh installs). Very very annoying being shutted down without advice and no help founded even googling a lot :(

I had the same problem with Ctrl+Z and Ctrl+Y, including a corresponding xev output with "KeymapNotify event". The solution was: Assign a new keyboard shortcut to exactly that combinations with xfce4-keyboard-settings and delete them afterwards. After that Ctrl+Z (undo) and Ctrl+Y (redo) worked again.

To me, disabling "Enable Automatic Login" in "Auto Login" tab from Login Window Preferences wasn't enough (login screen was showing up, but a moment later system was automatic logging me). I had to uncheck also "Enable Timed Login" from the same section.

From the error message I would guess that means that the "diver is not new enough to support the nvidia-settings page" This is none too surprising since the GFX 5 series is over 10 years old which is like 80 in human years. The amazing bit is that nVidia maintained driver support for that antique through 2008.

First of all we need to configure/change the audio configuration for our bluetooth device (in my case, Bose Soundlink), I wouldn't assume that this steps would work for every bluetooth device, so give it a try, and hopefully it'll work. We type in this command. sudo nano /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf This will open or if not exist previously then create the ...

I think that this 'Toshisba' icon represents graphically a whole drive as a device just like /dev/sda. Device cannot be mounted this way. Only partition formatted with filesystem which is represented in your case as 'File System' icon. I suggest to ignore it or maybe there is some setting in a filemanager to hide it.

I was running Linux Mint from a bootable USB, and the file was in my home directory. That was the problem. When I watch a file in my hard drive, it works fine.

I found this article which suggests a couple of ways to stop the screensaver from activating. I have not tested this but since they presumably issue events to stop the activation (the second does at least), that should also count as activity for the inactivity monitor. You'll have to test this though, I'm not sure it will work. Install caffeine. This can ...

First of all I am using Linux Mint Debian Edition 201403, VLC version 2.1.1 Ricewind. Now as for the solution. 1.

Do two things: Add to your startup scripts the command xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults (or .Xresources, or actually whatever file you want to write your configuration to). Apparently any executable script in the folder $HOME/.kde/Autostart will be executed at startup when you use KDE as your destkop environment; I can't check because I don't use KDE. Add the ...

Linux Mint 16 reached end of support/life in July 2014¹, you should consider upgrading, as other (security) issues in that version will not be resolved either. Since Mint 16 is based on Ubuntu 13.10, the same advice as Deim0s gave for Ubuntu applies for you. ¹ If it wasn't, you would probably just be able to update bash from the original Ubuntu repository, ...

You can easily find the location of such configuration info by making a small change to one of the application settings (make sure you can undo it if necessary) and then do: find ~ -type f -mmin -1 Which find all files under your home directory that changed in the last minute. You will find that the files are under ~/.config/autostart/ (for each user)

Execute these commands in a terminal, in this order. Step 4 adds the Xorg Developers PPA. Once completed, tell me if step 7 installs the same version you downloaded. Step 3 removes the offending module that is still loaded. Step 5 removes the need for nomodeset on your kernel command line, so please remove whatever edit you made to /etc/default/grub ...

Sure, you can install every package you need install on gnome: apt-get install k3b k3b is a CD/DVD burner and Audio ripper. Of course, on first installation of KDE application such as k3b, apt-get first installs some basic dependencies, for following installations such as kmail or kate, apt-get doen't need to re-install the same dependencies.

I tried installing the Slovak keyboard on my Cinnamon and could get the { symbol with AltGrb: If that doesn't work for you, you might need to change the keyboard's options: Then, choose the key that sets the 3rd level:

So today I woke up turned on my system and everything works fine. Not sure what happened but I did reinstalls on pulseaudio before that and changed the snoop=0 to snoop=1 in the etc/modprobe.h/alsa-base.conf to the previous command I had there. So one of those things fixed it. If someone comes up with the same issue be sure to install the latest stable ...

The version of Ubuntu you are using (Quantal, 12.10) is no longer supported since May 16th. So you can no longer download packages for it. You might be able to install curl and php from an installation DVD, or alternatively use wget to download the sources for both and compile them from source. I recommend however that you upgrade (or downgrade) to a ...

A scroll wheel is seen as a pair of buttons, one for rotation in one direction and one for rotation in the other direction. Up is button 4, down is button 5, left is 6, right is 7. So remap the buttons so that physical button 7 is converted to logical button 4 and physical button 6 to logical button 5. You can do this with the xmodmap command. xmodmap -e ...

Haha! If you've done this run an invalid command for gnome-terminal...
