Re: Pulseaudio-dlna chromecast

Hi bananabob, I do not see anything wrong with the results of the "inxi -Fxzd" console terminal command, so that is a good thing. You might consider using the nVidia video card rather than the Intel, but the Intel seems to be working fine too. I do not see anything that would interfere with "pulseau...

Re: DVD drive won't read DVDs but will read CDs

Hi Mike123, I do not see anything wrong with the results of the "inxi -Fxzd" console terminal command, so that is a good thing. The "inxi -Fxzd" already includes the "-d" (drives) flag parameter which can be run separately with a space after the "inxi", "inxi -d". You might consider updating the Lin...

Re: looking for a program to write a dvd movie to usb stick

Hi sn00pd0g, and Anyone Elese, I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well. "Handbrake" and "K3b" are great but are known to not work for all movie discs, but "MakeMKV" is even better and should work on most if not all Blu-Ray and DVD discs to backup or con...

Re: Playing Bluray movies

Hi "Pascal Illustrator",

There is nothing in the results of those commands that would be "bad" for you or reduce your security. You could omit your hostname if you wanted, but there are details about the DVD/CD/Blu-Ray drive(s) and your video setup that would help a lot.

Re: email client Thunderbird alternatives?

Hi all41, I do not think that Thunderbird is any more "bloated" than some other email clients and it works well with some great add-ons like the "Lightning" calendar, Enigmil (encrypted email), sync gmail contacts, etc... There are also 2 good email system tray panel indicators available "FireTray" ...

Re: Root is full

Hi trope, I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well. Did you "put /tmp on tmpfs" in ram memory? If so, disable that, reboot, and see if you still have a problem. Speed up your Mint 19! - Easy Linux tips project https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsp...

Re: DVD drive won't read DVDs but will read CDs

Hi Mike123,

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" and "lsusb" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information. You did not use the "-d" on the "inxi" when you first posted.

Re: Screenlets Not Installing

Hi MrGrimm,

Cinnamon 19 already has a bunch of great applets and desklets, etc... what are you looking for.

I updated my last reply when you replied, please re-read it because the first links have methods that apparently work and are easier than what I did.

Re: Screenlets Not Installing

Hi MrGrimm, What version and edition of Linux Mint are you using? If you add that information to your profile signature, we won't have to keep asking for this. The one thing I really like about Linux Mint Cinnamon and KDE is that they do have a fair amount of applets, desklets, widgets (kde), etc......
