Using Mint as a media server

Got an issue I'm trying to resolve at no cost. I have a Asus router that I have a 4T hard drive connected to via USB 3 connection. This holds all my media that I stream to various things. The USB 3 connection died on the router, it was setup as UPNP, media streamer and Samba share. The great thing a...

Re: slingplayer

Thanks!

After many years of dual booting into 10 to use my Sling box when I travel this solved the problem! Actually looks better and audio syncs up better than the desktop version in Windows.

Re: the permissons for wrong number of arguments prevent user from this share

I've been doing battle with this issue for a few weeks. Altair's solution does not work for me. I had done force user = xxxxx many years ago to solve another issue and it's still in the samba file. I have a large file of music that I transferred from a networked computer - running windows at the tim...

I have a Music folder on it with about 6000 files in it, and every music player I try cannot see the music folder, but it can see the m...

Clementine will not see ONE folder on NAS but others

I've used clementine for years, but somehow it got uninstalled when I upgraded to 19.2, guess I did not look at the list of deleted programs too closely. Anyway reinstalled it and it sees my NAS drive, sees various folders -but not the one containing my music! Weird. Tried renaming it, tried other c...

Re: About 1/2 updates fail.. What's wrong?

Well after trying the second options listed above for about a week, it seems to work well EXCEPT---- the update no longer asks me to enter my password to do updates. Seems like a security issue, but I generally trust the updates I get.

About 1/2 updates fail.. What's wrong?

Not sure what is going on. I'm on 19.2 and about half the time when I click on the updates it will fail with "Cannot install the security updates". This never happened when I was on previous versions. I end up doing sudo apt update then sudo apt upgrade and it resolves as far as I know. - until the ...

Re: <Solved> Desktop Icons - Sizing and moving Icons

Frustrating is right! I upgraded fro 18 to 19.2 and my icons stayed where they were. I created a new launcher and it kept snapping out of line with the rest of my icons. entered the "False" command and al my icon doubled in size - not what I wanted, but I can move them. How do I get things back to w...
