Re: bluetooth freezes video

Fantastic! Thanks a lot. I had been using Blueman all along. But trying to pipe the output to Headset is what frustrated me all along.
But your suggestion, to use the a2dp audio sink instead, solved it. Thanks again

Re: bluetooth freezes video

I have no experience with python scripts. So I extracted the three scripts: a2dp.py, fix-bt.py and a file fix-bt.service. Then I installed python and tried to run a2dp.py: $ python a2dp.py File "a2dp.py", line 122 print(d, end='') ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax The offending part is probably: def pip...

Re: bluetooth freezes video

It did however deposit file in my home directory. At first it just looked odd, but it is an html file. So I added the appropriate file extension and can read it now in a browser. I will see, what it teaches me. Thanks

more on GoogleEarth problems

I could install Google Earth 7.3.1.4507 (64-bit) without problems. Unfortunately, what should be the main window appears as a tiny, stamp-size square in the upper left corner of the main frame. I haven't found a way to enlarge this window. Unfortunately, I can't upload the screen-shot image (at 217k...

[SOLVED] /boot folder full

After the newest system update (2017-12-06) my /boot folder is full again. Apparently the Linux firmware created a whole bunch of previous initrd.img files. At 40 Mb each that is quite costly. I can't purge them in the usual ways. Are they all needed? $ ls -all /boot total 224599 drwxr-xr-x 6 root r...

Re: boot partition too small

I am grateful to all of you who have contributed so quickly to solve my problem. My Linux Mint installation is two years old and has gone through several Mint versions. I did try to get rid of old boot images, but I did it via delete instead of purge. So the system probably set up a hidden local tra...

Re: boot partition too small

Thanks Spearmint2, you clinched it. I hadn't looked for hidden files and directories. Deleting .Trash-0 gave me 170 MB back and the update work flawlessly. What I don't understand is why the OS decided to keep the trash file in the boot partition, given the fact that real estate is dear. How can I t...

boot partition too small

Every time I update my installation, the OS complains that the boot partition is full. 244MB seems too small. On that 1TB drive I also have a 512 MB boot/efi that's practically empty and a huge working partition - one side of a Raid 1, and there's the problem. I don't dare to chop off 1 Gb of over 9...
