Re: Multiple Bluetooth Speakers.

Hi "Bob M", Not sure of the answer to your question, but that may depend upon the Bluetooth speakers and your Bluetooth transceiver. You may need to use a Bluetooth transceiver that is 4.1 or higher with "aptx" for attaching to multiple Bluetooth devices at one time and they are available on Amazon....

Re: Webcam Logitech Quikcam E2500

HI Miguelito, It can take some time before people in the forum can respond and unless someone can offer some advice, you may not get a good reply. Since Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon is detecting the device, I do not see any reason why it should not be working. You installed the 3rd party packages in Linux...

Re: Connect to RPi VPN with OVPN file

HI Stroopwafelandcoffeem, You are welcome... The "RPi VPN service silently turned off" would certainly be a problem. Linux Mint 18.x or newer (19.x) Network Manager when "importing a VPN" would automatically extract (create) the certificate and key files and any "tls" information from an openVPN con...

Hi hgraca, I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

HI Stroopwafelandcoffee, It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run " inxi -Fxzd " from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information. From your screenshots, I do not see how any system could connect to y...

Re: Graphics Driver Failure - nouveau?

Hi bardfast (George), You are welcome... No, you do not need to try and remove the nouveau video drivers first. The driver manager may not have the current or correct nVidia drivers for your particular video card, which is why the PPA is recommended. If you have a nVidia video card it is recommended...

Re: Rhythmbox cover art?

Hi David1293,

You are welcome...

No worries ...

Glad you were able to install it. Remember that you may need to use dconf editor while not in Lollypop to enable networking (Internet access). Do you see any differences with this newer version and is it working better for you?

If you already have the regular version of Lollypop installed, installing this will remove that, or you can remove it manually first. Lollypop : Cédric Bellegard...
