Re: Hidpi and 1920x1080 screen

Define, "output has to be posted in code tags."

Please don't use jargon as found in NASA's journal to launch a shuttle. Condescend to the level equivalent to "Newbie" and let your intelligence role.

Thanks!

Hidpi and 1920x1080 screen

Linux Mint 19 is awesome with hiccups. How do you scale 1920x1080 screen properly? Going to GENERAL and selecting Double Hi-DPI doesn't cut it. Unless the problem is resolved, Linux Mint 19 will never be a likely candidate as a default operating system. I'm using an HP Envy 15.6 laptop. See the foll...

Interesting!

When I sudo mount /dev/sr0 /mnt, I get the following warning in the terminal...

I wrote another post about my DVD's not automounting on my system. They will mount if I reboot my system but only then. I opened up the Disk program provided the Linux Mint distribution, and I discovered that my DVD is blocked. I've attached an image. Can someone tell me how to unblock my external D...

Re: DVD Not Mount Without Reboot

Yes! Upon reboot, mounted volumes appear on desktop and file manager. After that initial mount, automatic mount doesn't happen without another reboot.

DVD Not Mount Without Reboot

I'm using Linux Mint 19 and I love it. When using the operating system, I've bumped into a small hiccup. I have an external CD/DVD drive and it's recognized by the OS. However, when I insert a purchased (movie) DVD, the system will not mount it; I have to reboot my computer in order for this to occu...

No Wifi Option - HP ENVY x360 m6-w103dx

I installed Linux Mint 18 on the above HP laptop model. My first impression . . . Linux Mint 18 is a beautiful desktop OS; installation was quick as I was at the login screen before I knew it. However, it was with a few clicks that I realized I had no wifi connection — a serious regression. In the c...

Re: No Screen Dimming on AC

I have went into power/management and selected NEVER for "ON AC POWER." However, while my laptop is plugged in, it will dim about five minutes without use. This dimming is good if one is using their battery, but while on AC is not necessary. The NEVER, as I have selected it, doesn't seem to work on ...

No Screen Dimming on AC

Using Linux-Mint 16 and love it.

Although I've set all settings to 'never' and 'don't', I still have a screen that wants to dim while on AC; this is annoying and it shouldn't be. I'm using an HP-2000 notebook and I don't want to dim. How do I kill this behavior while on AC?

Re: Software Sources Will Not Work

Is package software-sources installed? Try to run it in a Terminal. Usually you can fix the lists in a Terminal as well in /etc/apt/sources.list or the directory /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ When I run 'software-sources' in the terminal nothing happens. It hangs for a couple of seconds and return the c...
