Re: Open Thunar to root broken

Sounds to me like you may, at best, have a data corruption on the hard drive. At worst it's a mechanical issue (head crash?), meaning replacing the drive. I would run a "fsck" or look at "gsmartcontrol" in the menu.

Re: Adding Appimage to menu

If after two last two/three steps the "Add Custom Application" window has lost focus and is not visible, it is probably hidden behind the main window.

Re: Presentation mode not working

My "fix" for this was to go into "Settings" > Screensaver and disable it there. I suppose if you want to have the screensaver active you could set it to activate after, say, 2 hours, thereby not having it activate during a movie.

Re: firefox 32bit-play videos in vlc

Don't know if these add-ons work in 32bit but go to Add-ons in Tools menu item and search for VLC. There are afew addons that should work for you.

Re: Any Experience with PNY Flashdrive?

I have a 32Gb usb 3 PNY.
It would not work as live usb but did sort of if using as fat32. Was going to chuck it but for some reason I formatted it (full) on a windows pc. Since then it works 100% !!!! Had it for about 2 years now.
Can create live usb etc. without any issues.

Re: Synaptic keeps wanting to reinstall libreoffice

@ rickc

Be aware that WPS for linux appears to be a "dead" product - no updates done for about 2 years or more and the forum has been hijacked by some Indian removals co. or other entities.

Thanks
Sorry, did not realise I was shouting, just creating a headline - I do a news sheet locally and it is just a habit to caps the title.
