Probably it's no longer supported.
Drat! I was afraid maybe that was the case. Guess I'll have to continue using zoom on my phone!
Thanks.

AOC Monitor webcam not working

I'm using Mint 20.1 I have an AOC monitor that is about 12 years old. The monitor works great, but I recently tried using the built-in webcam with Zoom and it doesn't work. I tried the Cheese app, and it says Device Not Found, while showing a couple of images I had captured about 9 or 10 years ago! ...

Re: New version of Private Internet Access - No Applet/Icon in Panel

You're brilliant! I added the 5 second delay, then rebooted and now the icon/applet is there! It does look different from the old one. Thanks, everyone!

Re: New version of Private Internet Access - No Applet/Icon in Panel

I tried '/opt/piavpn/bin/pia-client' and it opens PIA, but no icon in the panel. I'm using Mint 18.2 on this computer, so maybe it's an older version of Cinnamon thing?

Re: New version of Private Internet Access - No Applet/Icon in Panel

Thanks. I removed "--quiet" from the startup command. It just seems odd that the icon and access to the app through the applet is gone with this new version. I need that visual verification! I almost feel like uninstalling PIA and reinstalling the version 83. But for now I'll wait and see ...

New version of Private Internet Access - No Applet/Icon in Panel

I just installed the new version (1.0.2) of Private Internet Access. I had v83 before. I had a little trouble because pasting my PIA username and password did not work, until I manually typed the same information in. It's working fine now, except the icon does not show in my panel. I've asked for he...

Re: No compositing when logging into second user account

OK, I think I just solved the problem! When I've been clicking on the 'log out' applet in the MATE panel, I'm given the option to 'Switch User', 'Cancel' or 'Log Out'. Since I'm used to a 'User Switch' applet in other Desktop Environments, I've been selecting Switch User, and then logging into the s...

I'm not sure where to post this. I just installed Mint 12 Gnome. A month ago I had Mint 12 installed on a separate partition on this same computer along with Mint 10 and Bodhi Linux. Suspend worked fine then with Mint 12 and 10. Specs: AMD Athlon II X2 255 Processor, Linux-x86_64, MSI GF615M-P33 Mot...

Re: No sound playing video in VLC. Works in GnomePlayer

I tried resetting preferences, but no effect. I don't get it. It worked fine up till yesterday!
Is this some Gnome 3 weirdness? There were a few updates yesterday... maybe that screwed it up? I don't recall an update for VLC, though.
Guess I'll just use Gnome Player for now.

And the same videos play just fine when I use Gnome Player. I've rebooted, and still have the same problem. I can't find...
