Re: apt 2.0.4 update destroys usb

Don't think that apt is the problem on your system. Running apt 2.0.4 and all USB devices are working correctly.

I guess that more than only apt got installed. Maybe a newer kernel broke the USB driver, but your USB hardware isn't as the rollback made it work again.

Re: maybe they hacked my laptop...

maybe they hacked my laptop... That is always possible, but if you kept your Linux Mint up-to-date, the chance you have been hacked is very small. So cool down and don't overreact. Are there some log files to find clues? Yes, Linux have lots of logs, so have a look at the kernel log to see what is ...

Re: Linus Torvalds doubts Linux will get ported to Apple M1 hardware

I think Apple not giving a damn about other operating systems running on their hardware is a given. Oh, they care and care a lot. NO other OS on their hardware. This because if they own the hardware, the OS and the app store, they get ALL the money. That is the only thing Apple cares about. To me, ...

Re: Do you donate to the Linux Mint Project? If so, why?

That's very easy to answer. Linux Mint just works the way I want an operating system to work. I can use it with no customization's. That makes my life easier and I don't have to spend lot's of time on tweaking, compiling or adding other software packages repositories to use missing applications. Wit...

Around 2010 I started using Linux Mint and it was a smooth ride since. So I would say "Nope, doesn't happen often".

I guess your elderly parents will have a very plain Linux Mint, so I would do it, actually I did.

Re: Am I a linux noob because I use Linux Mint?

Nope! I'm into Linux since 1995 and went through all the different distro's. Some were good some were not so good. Stayed on Ubuntu for a while, but back in 2010 they did some changes I totally didn't like. So I tried Mint, and it just worked and I have all the configuration freedom I need. What I n...

Re: complete success, not at all angry

On my system all went fine. To me it feels like Linux Mint 20 is running a bit smoother then Linux Mint 19.3. Had no issues at all, but when I bought my laptop it was Windows free and came with Ubuntu pre-installed. So the hardware is Linux compliant. I'm running up to three KVM guests at the same t...

Re: Is er een tool om het scherm iets lichter te maken?

Ik heb niets extra's geïnstalleerd. Ik gebruik altijd het rolwieltje van mijn muis on de helderheid aan te passen.

Ga met de muis boven het accu icoontje hangen en dan kun je met het rolwieltje van de muis de helderheid van je scherm sturen.
