  6. [SOLVED] Re: Chromium snap directory permissions

    I understand. In this case, Mint 20 is built on top of Ubuntu 20.04, so my feeling was that using a deb package from it was less risky than getting one from some random source.
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Chromium snap directory permissions

    Wow, when did Canonical become Microsoft (our way or the highway)?

    }

    Then you can just type

    rank /some/directory/path

    It seems like every LTS release has "improved" some feature out of Gedit that I used. Menus (gone), a quit option (only way now is to click the X on the toolbar) and now being able to adjust the...
