Re: Network issue on LM 19.2 VM - "Connection Established"

I'd start at the beginning - do both VM's have identical settings (including the advanced tab) in the VirtualBox Network tab? The only think that should be different is the MAC. Yes. As you are running in Bridged Mode have you ever told your router to give one VM's MAC and not the other a fixed IP ...

Re: Mounting external drive as "local" in VM

After reading SomeDudeInAZ's reply (which is pretty good, by the way), I realized that Harry's ultimate issue may be making backups, not mounting a docking station in the Guest. You want to make a safety backup of a Guest, right? Forget trying to mount a docking station into the Guest. What you want...

Re: Notifications

The notification spec allows for the sending process to specify various hints to prompt the Desktop Environment how to treat the Notification. One of those hints is the transient hint, and the Network events notifications in Cinnamon are sent with the transient hint. Basically the applet setting to...

Re: Notifications

Makes sense if you think about it, the setting is specific to the applet and although no one has, there's nothing stopping someone writing and distributing a more feature rich notification applet via Cinnamon Spices (e.g. with a logging function :wink: ). Nah! That would make things too easy for Ne...

Re: Notifications

In a terminal Crtl-C and Ctrl-V are shell specific functions. This is for historic reasons, Bash's use of these shortcuts long predates the invention of any GUI operating system and the introduction of Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V for copy and paste in GUI operating systems. Specifically Ctrl-C interrupts the...

The ignore transient notifications is in the Notification applet settings not the main Notification settings module.

Re: Notifications

Based on some examples, I figured out how to put dbus-monitor into a script and run it from a menu button:

bash -c "dbus-monitor \"interface='org.freedesktop.Notifications', member='Notify'\";read -p 'Press Enter to continue'"

PS: Don't forget to set '[x] Launch in Terminal?'.
