Thanks. What version of networkmanager is that? I don't see any such thing in the menu.

Rename or move the /.config/featherpad/fp.conf file in your home folder.
Thanks. That didn't resolve the issue, however. Greetings, Joe

Can't see anything like "more connections". Where's that supposed to be found? Greetings, Joe

MX-17.1: How do you connect to WiMAX internet?

@all: Does anyone know how you, using MX-17.1, would connect to a WiMAX internet provider via a WiMAX -Modem (no Wi-Fi router)? Unfortunately nm-connection-editor doesn't list WiMAX as an option. I guess that you'd have to go by PPPoE, but I wouldn't know exactly how to configure that the GUI way. A...

Privacy-friendly solar inverters?

A friend of mine intends to build an off-grid solar system for her weekend cabin and asked me whether I had any knowledge about what hardware to choose (I didn't). I did a little research on the topic, and got the impression that it is not easy to find an inverter (the core component of almost every...

Re: MX-17 issue: "Jabra Speak 510" speakerphone = jitter only (in combination with Twinkle)

ANOTHER UPDATE:

Just tried to figure out what the difference between their "510" models and the "510+" models is. Seems to be that the only difference is that the "+" models are bundled with a Jabra Bluetooth stick.

Can anyone confirm this?

Re: Interesting free apps for Android devices (all from the "F-Droid" non-store)

UPDATE: I'd remove Contact Owner from the initial list : While testing it with LineageOS 15.1 (which is a somewhat cleaned-up Android 8.1 (Oreo) ), I noticed that this app asked for an absurd amount of permissions. F-Droid says that Cache Cleaner is no longer needed if using Android 6.0 or newer. H...
