Does 7z support recovery record now on Linux platform? I try to Google only to find some outdated posts. How about the situation nowadays?

There's no reason to use 7z for compression on Linux because xz is the open source implementation of 7z's LZMA format. It's standard that most everything is packages in a tar.xz archive these days.

How to change Screencloud tray icon on Linux Mint 17.3?

I have found that the tray icon is gray but as we all know the bottom column is also gray on Linux Mint 17.3. Besides, I don't want to change the color of the default bottom column. The bottom column cannot clearly show the icon because they are all gray color.

I find the following message from terminal: [INFO] "Using bundled icon: :/systray/trayicon-gray.svg". Can I edit this file to change the tray icon? I wish you can give me some suggestions regarding this.

Yes, you can find the icon for the program and edit it without messing anything up. Usually they're in /usr/share/icons. You can also add a custom icon to the icon theme you're using.

Alternatively, you can use another icon theme. Although Mint-X has a TON of icons compared to most distros, it can't compete with something like Numix, my personal favorite. https://github.com/numixproject/numix-icon-theme-circle

Here is the relevant comment from the forums: "This game does not need to be tested against each version of wine. It wouldn't work until d3d11 will be fully implemented."

Is caffeine working with Google chrome on Linux? I find that I use google chrome to watch movies online with full screen window, meanwhile the screensaver and monitor sleep setting are still working. But caffeine seems to work well with smplayer and so forth.

Update:
Caffeine cannot deal with mate-screensaver well. Smplayer has an option to disable mate screensaver with video in full screen.

How about the performance if it were installed with a Linux distribution?
It looks like a MacBook and is named like a Macbook Air.

Is ufsd more stable than nfts-3g on Linux? Does someone give it a try on Linux? I want to give it a try on LinuxMint 17.3 in the future.

My friend tells me that when the LED monitor is woken up it is beneficial to have the monitor to show black screen first. Is that true? So on my Linux system, how could do that?

The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. No one wanted it to be like it was with their parents. It sucked. But, if you don't make them move out or pay rent, they never grow up and think its like 'school' told them it is. Fair. Sorry, no such thing on the planet.
Thanks for the chat :) T

I want to use seafile or owncloud but need to find a stable Linux VPS to serve as a file server. I hope the price is not so high and the service is not so poor. I think maybe ramnode is a good option. What do you think of this?

I'm also interested in good cheap VM leasing companies. I host a couple of servers at home, one on a Belkin router running Tomato Shibby, the other on an old laptop with a broken screen running CentOS. But I have a friend in Scotland who is looking for a hosted VM. I found this at 5 Euro / month. It seems like it would fit his modest needs, but as well all know, it's all about the company (reliability etc.). https://www.securerack.com/products/vdatacenter.php
