Re: AMD GPU doesn't work properly with 4K monitor

Tried it, but it doesn't change the outcome: sometimes screen doesn't turn on at all, and sometimes it's with the half screen mode described in OP :(

Re: AMD GPU doesn't work properly with 4K monitor

OP in that thread is me :) The solution is only partial, and results in the situation described in this thread's OP (e.g. videos only on half screen). I tried the solution in your post, but doesn't work. The other solutions don't work, either. xorg.conf seems to have been deprecated in Linux nine ye...

Re: AMD GPU doesn't work properly with 4K monitor

What is the model number of the Dell monitor? Are you sure it supports a 3840x2160 @60 Hz resolution? Do you have a Windows PC the monitor can be connected to so it can be verified? After extracting the info from the monitor’s EDID, the maximum dotclock (pixel clock) supported is given: Monitor ran...

Re: AMD GPU doesn't work properly with 4K monitor

Turning MST off (disabling DisplayPort 1.2) at monitor also drops refresh rate to 30Hz, so not a good solution.

AMD GPU doesn't work properly with 4K monitor

My Vega 56 works fine without DisplayPort 1.2 enabled in my 4k monitor's settings at 30Hz. But if I want to get 60Hz by enabling DisplayPort 1.2, I get the launch bar only on one half of the monitor, and full-screen videos use only half of the monitor - rest is spread appropriately. I also get occas...

Re: Alternative for Timeshift to backup non-OS files and folders?

https://backintime.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ This looks like a great option! Can I name different snapshot setups for each destination drive?

Alternative for Timeshift to backup non-OS files and folders?

I currently use rsync for backing up my desktop and network drives to external HDDs I keep offline and off-site for security. But rsync doesn't have a good way to keep deleted files for, say, six months, and then discard them. Therefore I'd like to use Timeshift for backup. Nice UI and easy to setup...

Re: Mounted Samba shares don't show up on desktop

The problem here is that fstab is being run before the network stack in Mint is up and operational. Option [1] will be done after you log in so the network should be up by then. Option [2] directs the system to issue a "mount -a" only after the network is up. Ah that was my suspicion, thanks for co...

Connecting to a Raspberry Pi on local network doesn't work in Tara anymore

I have a Raspberry Pi on my local network, connected via wifi to a router my Mint box is also connected to, with a LAN cable. The Pi used to show up fine under network drives in Nemo in 18.3, but doesn't do that anymore in 19.0. Other (wired) devices show up under Network, no need to go to Windows N...

Re: Mounted Samba shares don't show up on desktop

Now I get the issue that I need to run sudo mount -a to get the drives to mount, although I have them in fstab. How do I ensure that the network drives are automatically mounted on startup?

Re: Mounted Samba shares don't show up on desktop

Things ( local partitions or shares ) are mounted where you tell them to mount - unless you use the file manager to mount in which case they mount to /media/$USER/XXX for partitions and /run/user/$UID/gvfs for shares. Based on forum posts it appears that the application Disks has a proclivity to mo...

Re: Mounted Samba shares don't show up on desktop

I'm not sure I understand how you are mounting these samba shares but: Anything - and I mean anything ... local partitions to remote samba shares - will display a mount icon if the mount point is under /media or in your home directory. If they are mounted anywhere else they will not. Based on your ...

Mounted Samba shares don't show up on desktop [SOLVED]

In Mint 18.3 mounted Samba shares showed up on desktop along with mounted local drives. They don't do that in 19.0 anymore, and I only have local drives there. I can add the Network icon, but would prefer to have my network drives as separate icons on my desktop. I copied all the share drive icons f...

I have PlayOnLinux on Mint 19. When I go to install a program manually, the wizard's first step is to create a new virtual drive. I choose another Wine version (2.6, required by Fantasy Grounds), which I've already installed. Next it says to wait a bit for POL/Wine to create the new drive, but it ju...

If 19 Cinnamon is anything like 18.3 Cinnamon right click on the time and click Configure - you should see a calendar box. At the bottom of that box is the date format - make sure the "Use custom date format" is ON. replace the . with a : in the date format box
Thank you, still there in 19!

How to change clock separator?

The clock in 19.0 Cinnamon has the incorrect formatting for Finland: it shows 22.43, wrong formatting. How do I change it to show 22:43 instead?
