Video list -- some things NOT like the others

In attempting to install virtual cam in OBS, I've done something to my system, because my touchpad is being listed as a video device (in OBS) and yet, while plugging in an external cam, I cannot use the integrated and external cams in separate views, make one a video source, and it becomes the video...

Re: Dell Inspiron 15... close lid suspends, then reboots running with lid closed

I usually use this plugged in anyway, but ...
I've never seen this happen with any other device. And Dell machines have generally been faultless with Linux.

<SOLVED> Dell Inspiron 15... close lid suspends, then reboots running with lid closed

in System Settings > Power Management, I have "suspend" selected for lid close for both AC and battery modes. When I close the lid, it appears that a restart happens, not a suspend. Lifting the lid shows the screen is on, and the computer running.This is not good, especially on battery pow...

Re: Using a tablet / 2 in 1 laptop with touchscreen?

Sorry for the late answer, but I just bought Dell p58f 7569 15 with i5 2 in 1. dual booting with 19.1 Cinnamon So far I have found that tablet mode works with touchscreen, does NOT rotate, and both keyboard and trackpad are disabled. The 15" widescreen is rather unwieldy as a tablet, anyway! Bu...

Re: Font Viewer doesn't launch from GUI.

I have noticed this same problem, Mint 18 cinnamon 64bit.
opening gnome-font-viewer, as suggested, only allows "viewing" not installing new fonts.

EDIT: I have installed Font Manager from the repo, and it works.

Re: Mint (and Lubuntu) doesn't see anything in USB and HDMI

machfront I noticed you haven't had an answer, yet. I hope you are still around. What would help investigating your problems would be to know details on the system, manufacturer, model, and what version of mint, cinnamon? MATE? 32 OR 64 bit? Do you also have the capability to connect this device via...

Re: [SOLVED] Backup Cinnamon Desktop before upgrade to LM 17

@Ceilidh2

If you don't have at least one other backup of your movies, then you don't really have them! One little mistake, problem, hard drive crash and you've lost them.

You need to do a backup...

...please take this as a friendly warning...

search reveals no "search for files" Mint 13 SOLVED

I guess I hadn't noticed in the RC of mint 13 cinnamon, that the "search for files" (in Menu > Accessories in Mint12) is nowhere to be found. One must open nautilus to get that function now...an extra step added. Or is there a way to add?

Re: lenovo laptop

emmetk1 sorry for getting back so late. The recovery partition is most likely the 14.7gb. Since it is 'protected' is probably why no fs is listed. I would say that using 20gb of the 82 free in c: would be enough, as you can also access your windows partitions to save/load you data too also. That way...
