Re: Linux Mate 19.2 Upgrade lost applications menu

Solved. I've had modified the menu last year (viewtopic.php?f=208&t=283906&p=1568498& ... s#p1568498). Removing these files fixed the problem

Re: Bye bye i386, Ubuntu is dropping all 32-bit support going forward

Clems next blog entry is going to be interesting. Yes, for possible news about Linux Mint 19.2 :) I don't know about Ubuntu dropping 32-bit, which doesn't affect Linux Mint until mid next year. Perhaps a beta but I think 19.2 release is still a month or two away. If Ubuntu continues down the path o...

Re: Bye bye i386, Ubuntu is dropping all 32-bit support going forward

We can muse about what could be but there's a whole year left before we see impact from this, if at all. The news is just shared, developers of different projects are starting to discuss if and how it impacts them (which isn't clear right now) and what direction they could take their development in...

Re: Bye bye i386, Ubuntu is dropping all 32-bit support going forward

I haven't seen any comments from the Wine developers, but removing the multiarch is going to hurt them the most. My guess is this change will land in Mint summer next year.

Re: Is Steam Proton a Security Risk?

If your worried Firejail wine, but if your are getting games from GOG, stream, or using genuine install CDs there wont be a problem. The problems may come from warze sites or game cracks.

PS
NEVER use IE 6 or Outlook Express, but you should know that already :P

Re: How to Encrypt Individual Files and Folders via GUI

Take a look at Gnome Encfs Manager, this mounts an fake drive and any folders or files you place on this drive are encrypted.

Re: Why isn't Lutris in Software Manager?

Being in the official repo wont help. Lutris update's every few months, if it was in the repo you might get an update once a year.

Re: Add a new Grub Menu Option

Why worry is booting into a blank screen, I thought the extra boot option would allow me restart and fix the damage.

Add a new Grub Menu Option

What I want to do is add an extra option to the Grub boot menu. So, the default would boot mint using the Radeon driver as normal, the option I want to add would cause mint to boot using the AMDGPU driver if selected. Booting using the AMDGPU is just a matter of adding this line "radeon.cik_support=...

Re: AMDGPU and Radeon Driver Packages from XServer on Same Machine?

Is it possible to have the option in the grub menu as to which driver is used, so default mint would boot to use Radeon but if I'm gaming mint would be booted using AMDGPU. I'm assuming hot swapping is not possible. The Vulkan and Gallium9 updates can wait until mint 19.2 which will more than likely...

Re: AMDGPU and Radeon Driver Packages from XServer on Same Machine?

I've been thinking about trying AMDGPU, my laptop came with a Sea Island (Kaver) card. Would it be possible add an option in the grub menu, for example option 1 uses the radeonSI driver and option 2 uses the AMDGPU driver. One more thing what is the best mesa version to use with AMDGPU, the LTS vers...

Re: Cinnamon panel & themes / losing preview

I'm not sure this is theme related, I'm using the default theme and occasional the preview window fails, going into "Looking Glass" and reloading the "Grouped Window List" fixes it, "Icing Task Manager" also had this problem.

Re: mint 19.1 does not fix AMD graphics issue of 19

4.18 is the kernel I'm now using without any ill affects. By the way switching back to 4.15 if you run into a problem is just a matter of selecting the advanced option in the boot screen and uninstalling the kernel in the update manager.

The firmware is still crashing if the network is disconnected by applet or command line.
