Small victory today!

Postby Grantzilla » 2020-09-17 20:39

So after having issues trying to install the latest and greatest Wine version installed to Buster, I switched to Bullseye, still had some wine issues, corrected those, changed a bunch of stuff had few broken packages and fixed those. Still don't know what I doing, but am having a great time with my 12yr old Lenovo R61i.

Once question I do have how can I look at or mount file directories? I installed Midnight commander and that helps but I would like to know how to see what files are in a give directory in my home folder.

Each desktop environment has a file manager. Which you have depends on what desktop environment you have. Gnome, Xfce, KDE, Mate, LXDE, what? Or you can use the command line in a terminal and use either ls or dir to see the files in any directory if you give the path. Midnight Commander, while available, is not at all necessary.
Take my advice, I'm not using it.

I am running Mate, I like XFCE more but I like that the volume buttons work with Mate. I agree about MC and they only reason I installed it was because of the new user guide. I will try the dir and see how that goes. Thanks for the reply.

I am running the "Mate Dark" theme and with stable using XFCE or Mate I could use the red Debian swirl for the menu Icon which I think looks Bada**!
