Re: Remmina Remote Desktop Client

Oh...well...dunno. I guess that blows my theory. I don't really know much about the subject, though I have used VNC for remote desktop and it's performance was/is stellar, I just don't like the way it handles multiple monitors. So I have switched, almost exclusively, to AnyDesk... much more flexible.

Re: Remmina Remote Desktop Client

Not sure about this, but I seem to recall reading that Mint 19 no longer includes a VNC server by default. If that is true, the simple fix would be to install one.

Re: Why can't my computer's boot menu see a bootable LiveUSB?

Agreed. I had overlooked the fact that you have a working system or two installed, and just one of them is giving you problems. So probably not hardware failure. One the other point...a while back, when I was running 3 or 4 distributions on the same hard drive (most if not all based on Debian Sid), ...

Re: Why can't my computer's boot menu see a bootable LiveUSB?

So.... did the SolydX updates mess with the system in some way which still allow it, and Mint, to work, but prevent MX16 and the Live media from connecting or driving the display graphics properly? While you cannot take my thoughts as the final work on the subject, I have to answer no to the questi...

Re: Why can't my computer's boot menu see a bootable LiveUSB?

It is hard to grasp why a system that worked in the past doesn't work now. I'm fairly sure MX offers a safe graphics mode of some sort in the boot menu of the live system. Have you tried choosing that? Maybe even try the xforcevesa boot option and see if that makes any difference.

Re: good media player for two monitor set up?

There are setting within VLC player also to display video on a second monitor. I think the same is true of almost all media players. So, leeismint, which media player do you prefer? It can likely be set up to do just what you want.

Re: Removing Sound Drivers

Just to add to Jeremy's comment, almost all drivers are built into the Linux kernel and only loaded as detected/needed. I'm not aware of any proprietary sound drivers, like one might use for certain graphics cards, that doesn't mean they don't exist. If you used Mint's Driver Manager to install such...

Re: Hello from Colorado

Hi Ryan, welcome. I'm like you, in that I've tried other systems, but always end up with Ubuntu (well Debian really) based systems because I'm just more familiar with the way they work. Been using Debian or derivatives for several years now.

BTW, where is Colorado? Mountains or plains?

Re: Any Suggestions for TV software, to use with my USB TV Receiver/Aerial?

The claim is made that VLC can tune TV channels from a capture device. I have not yet got it working though. So I use either Kaffeine or Me TV. Between the two Kaffeine has better tools and, for me at least, Me TV utilizes graphics acceleration better. Though I still don't get smooth video with eith...

Re: Add a working Mint disk to new Windows box

Most Lenovo systems have the option of pressing F12 to choose a boot device. If the M92 has that, then it would be an easy way to choose which device you want to boot. Shouldn't have to do anything else to either disk to make a dual boot system that way.
