broke Firefox “print” function with really long page:

I wanted to print a long webpage as a non-paginated PDF, and so I set the print page size to something like 4000". It broke. Now, any time I go to print in Firefox, I get this error: “An error occurred while printing.”

I deleted that new 4000" page size from my options using some other program, but I still get that error when trying to print from Firefox.

What can I do to fix it?

Two finger scrolling only works with three fingers:

I’m running mint 19.1 on a T440p off a flashdrive to try it out. For some reason two finger scrolling isn’t working when I use two fingers, but using three fingers on the trackpad makes it work fine. I haven’t found anyone else with this problem, so I’m a little lost on how to solve it. The T440 has the terrible trackpad with no buttons, but I plan on replacing it with the 450 trackpad.

This isn’t a huge deal, but I’d like to only use two fingers to scroll if possible.

Removing a dead drive from an LVM

Removing a dead drive from an LVM:

I’ve got a machine running Linux Mint 18.1, which had a LVM spanning 3 1TB drives. One of them has died, and I’m just trying to figure out if it’s possible to remove this drive from the LVM and hopefully see what data is still on there. If so, how do I go about it?

There was no critical information, just rips of all our movies and music and any TV shows I’d downladed, and I have a backup from about a year ago that has 80% of what the LVM contained (basically everything except Tv shows I’ve downloaded and a few new movies I’ve ripped)

I’m looking for some VPN help. I’d like to keep my VPN system wide, with the exception of Chrome.:

As the title says. I’d like to keep my VPN system wide but exclude Chrome. I do some work at home stuff on Chrome and the VPN is causing problems. I’m running into cases where I go to accept a job and it says someone at my location/IP has already completed the job so I can’t accept it.

I’m using TorGuard VPN, and occasionally Proton VPN on Mint 18.3 Cinnamon. I’ve contacted TG to ask if it was possible through their application, they said no. I’ve looked in the Chrome proxy settings and all it says is: “When running Google Chrome under a supported desktop environment, the system proxy settings will be used. However, either your system is not supported or there was a problem launching your system configuration.” I thought there was settings to do this in the past, but it looks like they’ve been removed.

There are a few people on a couple of my forums that are decent with Linux, but they’ve never done this. They think the best way to do it would be a firewall rule. I’ve never tinkered with those before so I’m not sure.

Any thoughts?

Mint updates

Mint updates:

Hi folks,

Fairly new to Mint (cinnamon 19) but loving it so far. I’ve had Mint installed for about a month now and my Update Manager has, what seems like, at least 1000 or more updates available for upgrade? Is this normal? Should I just hit update all? I don’t have a clue what 99% of this stuff is.

I only have basic stuff installed. Chromium, Kodi, and whatever comes installed by default.

How to start Thunderbird minimized?

How to start Thunderbird minimized?:

I want Thunderbird autostarted but I do not want it occupying my screen after boot. Usually, `xdotools` is used to solve the problem, but for some reason `xdotools` can not minimize Thunderbird.

What is the way to create a shortcut that starts Thunderbird minimized or places its window on desktop #4 (which I usually don’t use).

I do not want to use Thunderbird extension, because they are either abandoned or suspicious.
