Re: No LM 20 Updates for 19 days?

You just HAD to go and create this thread didn't you? Now instead of blocks of updates since yesterday there is an annoyingly steady stream of small updates.....

Re: Login loop Linux mint 20

Could be either your graphics driver or kernel version. Had this problem myself before.

In my case it was the combination of the Nouveau driver and ANY kernel above 4.15 I think it was (can't say for sure now). When I started using the nvidia driver instead the problem went away.

Re: Stuck with bulk renaming

One more thing to refine those renames would be to remove all spaces in file names; in Linux they are a real problem when dealing with files in command line that will be better removed. You can use command rename 's/\ /_/g' path/filename to replace all spaces with an underscore. This will mean you ...

Re: Stuck with bulk renaming

Good job. Mark it a Solved when you are happy. Some might say don't have parens around this: (\s\[) if you aren't going to use it (with \2), but it doesn't really matter. Well I am not an expert on regex obviously but I found this to be the only way to remove the [] from the final name, you will no...

Re: Stuck with bulk renaming

I further refined it (so happy with myself now)
Match: ^([A-Z]*[a-z]*.*)(\s\[)([A-Z]*[a-z]*.*)(\b\w+\b)(\])
Replace: \4, \3- \1
Changing as example

NP I have not been too fast either. This works well enough thanks. You did definitely help me on to the correct track though.

We really don't want to encourage everyone with a non-Mint problem to come to this forum for solutions. Send me a private message and we can continue this offline.
How about I report it and it gets moved to "chat about linux" instead?

Re: Stuck with bulk renaming

Using rename: rename -n 's/([^ ]*) \[(.*)\](\.[^.]*)/$2 [$1]$3/' * Test it thoroughly. Remove the '-n' when you think it's good to go. That takes the word before the [] and then moves it to the end and put's it in []...... What I want to do is move the bit currently in [] to the front. Apologies fo...

[solved] Stuck with bulk renaming

I have a lot of files that need to be inverted and regular expressions always manage to confugle my brain. Part of the problem might be that the filenames have [] parts. Basically some genius that shall remain unnamed ill sorted these creating a right royal mess of files and I have to fix it. The fi...

Re: Cannot move file to Trash

Solved by adding the gid and uid to the boot parameter list.

The need to restart to make the changes happen was throwing me off.

it would not be a good security move to mount the partition as normal user if it's in the root file system.
It's even worse security to browse as root just for trash bin functionality....

EDIT: it's not root though if you meant root linux or windows drives, storage partitions shared with windows

Re: Is backwards compatibility still a problem in gaming on Linux Mint?

It's not the kernel that's the problem. It's that each major kernel shift is accompanied by a base repo shift. The backwards incompatibility problems come from this almost symbiotic relationship and software developers tending to advertise their system requirements based on kernel version instead of...
