Re: Mint 20 not Sound output switching to "Headphones" on Boot

Okay, I don't know why it's happening, but I think I can give you a workaround. Your headphones have a higher priority than the line out, so this shouldn't be happening as seen here: Ports: analog-output-lineout: Line Out (priority: 9000, available) analog-output-headphones: Headphones (priority: 9...

Re: Mint 20 not Sound output switching to "Headphones" on Boot

Hi Oldbwl, Let me see the output of this command: curl https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pulseaudio/pulseaudio/raw/master/src/utils/pa-info?inline=false | bash | nc termbin.com 9999 The last line of output will have a URL pointing to your sound setup. That point to why this is happening, but even if i...

Mint 20 not Sound output switching to "Headphones" on Boot

This is the first time I have had an issue like this, maybe one of you can help. A new HP Envy does not recognise that headphones are plugged in at boot time. It defaults to "Line Out". The sound can be restored by either manually switching the sound output device or by unplugging the head...

Re: Mint 20 Mate LibreOffice Writer glitch

I have looked at this. I can confirm the Bug does exist for me too. I cannot see why.
The Tab key does not work on any of the lines already existing in the document.
Creating a new line eventaully enabled the Tab key.

I recommend that you report this Bug to LibreOffice

Another option is the AppImage: https://download.xnview.com/XnView_MP.g ... 4.AppImage

UPDATE: just installed a Mint 20 VM and the AppImage works.
Thanks I will give that a try.

Hi, I had used XnViewMP in Windows for a while, a capable image viewer/editor.

It is not in the repos I guess. How did you install the previpus, working version?
I downloaded the .deb from the Authors site. The Flatpak version is way to old IMHO

I use XnViewMP a great deal. The latest version (96.3) fails to load in LM20 reporting a Segmentation fault. I have left a report on the sotware devs own site.

Solved: Nemo: Side panel Disk useage graphic - not on Home

In the screenshot crop of my Laptop's nemo side panel (v4.4.2 in Cinnamon 19.3) you can see the File System label has a disk useage graphic. My Desktop also has the same graphic under the Home folder as well, but for some reason it does not appear in the Laptop. Anyway to rectify this? Screenshot fr...

I have experienced this issue three or four times since 18.3. I run dual monitors and it only occurs on the secondary, and especially when Firefox Q is running.

Installing Gnome Recipes in Mint 18.2 Cinnamon

I have tried Gourmet and it is clunky and with bugs and apparently no longer developed, I have also used Krecipes which is close to what I want. There is not much else to try. Is it at all possible to install Gnome Recipes, preferably without having to change DE?

Restoring files removed by Software Manager

Sorry if this is a bit of a noobs question. I want to try a program (actually it doesn't matter which for the purpose of the question) and at the time of the install Software Manager advises it will remove some existing files/Libraries and replace them with something with a completely different name...
