Or keepass2, available from software manager.

Re: password manager

Thanks guys. In general do you prefer client based managers over web based? I am thinking if the client becomes compromised you still have the web..Just covering all scenarios. I am buying crypto and hear about scammers calling my mobile providers to gain access.

Re: Keyring problem

Thanks. I managed the first solution for chrome. But the solutions for Skype seem to suggest the keyring is linked to my system password. As instructed I tried to to remove my system password leaving it blank but I was not allowed. The password field is disabled when blank. Other solutions talked ab...

Re: Samsung ML-1675 driver

Thank you very much. The samsung link is now redundant but the universal driver further down did work.

Samsung ML-1675 driver-solved

Hello, it seems each time I upgrade cinimon I have to also deal with finding solution to getting this printer driver to work. My last post for mint 18.3 has been left unanswered. The current state of play is that Mint 20 detected the printer and installed some driver. But the only thing the printer ...

Hi, I am in my first month since upgrading to Mint 20 and am experiencing familiar problems as with printer drivers and keyring login every time I open chrome and since installing Skype also.

Re: Hibernation on mint 20

So can no one tell me how to turn off suspension. As mentioned, I have already set power management to never suspend. But it still does after ten mins. I also am experiencing printer driver problems which happens each time I upgrade. It is a Samsung ML-1675 which gets detected. But only prints the u...

Re: Hibernation on mint 20

That was useful reading SMG, thanks! Regarding my hardware: 6 gig of ram. My new SSD is 1TB. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B078WST5RK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I already installed LM20 with a swap partition double the size of my memory (12 gigs). On reading the new r...

Re: Hibernation on mint 20

SMG, can you post a link where the developers suggest against creating a swap partition. BTW I have already set power options to never suspend. It still does though after ten mins.

Thanks

Re: Hibernation on mint 20

My question is whether there is still a need to disable hibernation. I thought hibernation was disabled by default and when I checked these LM20 tips for optimizing SSD that is what it says. You may be correct and I am confusing it with suspension. It is when the system logs me out after 10 mins of...

Hibernation on mint 20

Hello, I have recently upgraded from 18.3 to 20 in conjunction with SSD upgrade. Since switching to solid state about three years ago I have been following pajor's tutorials on modifying FSTAB and disabling hibernation. I have managed to do the former but his tutorial on disabling hibernation does n...

Re: Thunderbird authentication

I am noticing the disadvantages of imap as I have already lost an important email due to creating and removing client. With imap every time deleting something causes the corresponding back copy on the server to also be deleted.

Re: Thunderbird authentication

Hello, I need to reiterated, only when I create a new account on the client with imap setting do I see an option for 0Auth2. And even then that option is limited to the incoming server. Outgoing still is limited to SSL/TLS, STARTLS and none. The original account which also has been switched from pop...
