Re: Microphone of Logitech webcam isn't recognised.

Are there any PPAs with webcam drivers? If there would be a good PPA with Webcam drivers, it would be very great.

Tweaking 20-intel.conf for maximal gaming and video performance.

Many cheaper laptops are equipped with an Intel video chip. The config file 20-intel.conf is located in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/.

Which settings and options within the 20-intel.conf file are necessary to obtain a maximum performance for gaming and watching videos?

You're very welcome. :D

I only hope that python-is-python3 package doesn't mess up anything else. Not my area, so I'm not sure.
Or simply run in the terminal

Code: Select all

python3 youtube-dl
if you are not sure whether

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install python-is-python3
will cause problems in the future.

Microphone of Logitech webcam isn't recognised.

I have connected a Logitech V-UM14 onto my PC. The webcam itself functions properly when I open it in VLC or in Gucview, but its built-in microphone isn't recognised at all. The microphone isn't also visible when I run Pulse Audio's Pavucontrol. My system: Linux Mint 19.3 Xfce 64 bits, kernel is 5.3...

Are you using a PPA? Mine are still at 18.2.2 (updated system this morning). Using PPAs like Updated Open Graphics Drivers - since 2011! to update your graphics subsystem (X11, Mesa) can wreak your system. Because they can cause dependency problems and version conflicts with your installed Mint ver...

I don't like a monochrome terminal in Linux Mint 19.1 Xfce. It is just like MS-DOS or the default Dos box of Windows XP, which were monochrome terminals too.

Using badblocks on optical media.

The badblocks command can also be used on optical drives to scan your CDs and DVDs for bad sectors. For example "badblocks -tv /dev/sr0" sr0 is the CD-ROM drive. A similar command for scanning optical media is cdck.
