Re: Uploading a screenshot, image, or images to this forum

Another way if from a browser is to use CTRL with - or + in combo, to make the webpage smaller or larger first, then run screenshot with option of crop. For instance in mate-screenshot or gnome-screenshot, I have my screenshot set to use it with the -i or interactive, which allows me at the time of ...

Re: [Tutorial] Live usb with persistence over 4GB

RE: Spearmint2 Got quite a few questions, if you don't mind. Being I'm using LM 19.1X "live" and in dd not .iso, I wonder how/if the separate partition method would work? And, most of all, what would I need to do to insure that "changes" I might make are written to that partition? Wouldn't I have t...

Re: Screen resultion changes when switching users

What does that "set as Primary" do? Maybe you can create an .xprofile file and put in each user's main folder with the resolution wanted for that user. Basically it's an xrandr command and then that user profile defaults to it instead of the system wide resolution. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/R...

Re: Screen resultion changes when switching users

Did you open Device Manager and put in the NVIDIA driver?

Here's what I see for my Display settings, using MATE on 17.3, do you not have similar option for "apply system wide"?

Re: Mounted Volume becomes inaccessible after power manager turns off screen

That may be it, an ownership problem. I'm not good with CHMOD, but if you go to the Administrative section and look for Users and Groups, you should be able to assign that drive to your User profile, and have it restriced to your profile, or open to any other profile.

Re: Mounted Volume becomes inaccessible after power manager turns off screen

Was one installed under UEFI and the other under Legacy mode? I don't have an UEFI motherboard, but I've heard that those drives with OS installed under Legacy mode may not see the drive and it's OS under the UEFI mode. That probably doesn't apply here, since you obviously have both drives at first....

Re: Mounted Volume becomes inaccessible after power manager turns off screen

That all looks OK in fstab and report of blkid. So, it's a laptop, which may I assume the SSD is plugged to a USB port? May be a regression error that turns off USB port.

Make a second one, so you have two of them. If the second one always comes up, then dump the old one.

Re: convert xrandr commands to xorg.conf settings

You put not in .profile, but in .xprofile, which you create with text editor. Put those xrandr commands in it, and into the user profile folder.

Re: Mounted Volume becomes inaccessible after power manager turns off screen

Mint 19 is a clean install to sda1 which overwrote the previous Mint 17.3 installation.
That makes no sense to me. Clean vs Over Wrote.

Check the fstab file.

When you set the display resolution didn't you also get an option to make that same resolution "system wide"?

I had that happen recently on 17.3 and saw the same message. Even logging out and back in didn't allow GParted to work. So I took the message to heart, and went looking for all the drives mint mate could see. Turns out it was a flashdrive that I'd removed earlier and it wasn't in /dev, nor anywhere ...
