Installing Linux Mint 18.2

Firefox 52+ does not work with ALSA, therefore you must install PulseAudio:

sudo apt install pulseaudio pavucontrol

and then activate my bose speakers using the PulseAudio Volume Control from the main menu.


Install the following libraries (sudo apt-get install):
qml-module-org-kde-kholidays  (this is for the holidays in the calendar)
gnome-themes-standard          (prevents warning with wxmaxima)
plasma-widget-cwp
plasma-widget-weatherforecast (widget weather forecast... cities)


Otros programas a installar
lha
rpm
rsibreak (workrave does not work)
texstudio (descargar desde página oficial)
google earth (descargar desde página oficial)
acrobat reader (.deb)

Después de instalar MATLAB, instale
matlab-support


Login Manager (greeter)
sddm is the default login manager in Linux Mint 18.2
It is really ugly, and I really like mdm, the default in LM 17.3
Therefore, install mdm and select it as the login manager
Remove sddm, sddm-theme*, kde-config-sddm


In order to remove the
[FAILED] Failed to start braille device support
error, remove brltty

Inkscape 0.46 in Linux Mint 17

I like to use psfrag + Inkscape to create my LaTeX plots,

However, I use inkscape 0.46, because this does not have a bug with the rendering of the text.

I use wine + inkscape 0.46

However when running I get this error:

(inkscape.exe:8): Pango-WARNING **: All font fallbacks failed!!!!

I solved it by installing the fonts with:

sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts

Backup of SVN repository

In order to backup my projectlocker repository I did the following:

svnrdump dump https://free1.projectlocker.com/diegoandresalvarez/LaTeX/svn > backup_libro_solidos.dump

This creates a dump file of the content of an entire repository. This dump file can then be loaded into a new repository (using ‘svnadmin load’) as required.

Disabling BALOO in Linux Mint 17 Qiana KDE

There is a bug with this program, which is using one of my processors and making my system sluggish:

Following the steps here:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/437635/how-to-turn-off-baloo-in-kde-4-13
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2217434

I edited:
$HOME/.kde/share/config/baloofilerc

And added the option:
Indexing-Enabled=true  
 
Also I erased the directory with the indexing, since I do not need it anymore:
rm -rf ~/.local/share/baloo
