Re: Claws mail sorts mail by date incorrectly

Now it's not doing it. Today's emails are dated the same format, and they are sorted correctly. :shock: Noteworthy: I also noticed the other day e-mails all of the same day but different times were all sorted randomly. I haven't seen that again. So weird; I thought I was tripping but it was random. ...

Claws mail sorts mail by date incorrectly

Mint 18 Mate 64 Just FYI, when I sort mail by date in Claws mail, a funny problem occurs. Dates are formatted: MM/DD/YYYY(Day) HH:MM unless the e-mail is dated today, in which case it is: Day, Month Date Year HH:MM:SS i.e. Sun, Mar 24 2019 5:46:44 This e-mail dated today gets sorted to the bottom, p...

Re: mount: [image.img]: failed to setup loop device: Operation not permitted (SOLVED)

I stand corrected. I was not able to reproduce what I thought was my understanding of inodes. You're right, it doesn't change even if the inode #s are shared. In that case, I don't understand or recall what the real issue was. I'll dig up the original post. It just remember finding out that I could ...

Re: mount: [image.img]: failed to setup loop device: Operation not permitted (SOLVED)

inodes are a per fs resource I'm not sure I understand. Of course, two OS' on different partitions will generate different inodes as new files are created, but as I understand it, when using dd, the inode numbers of existing files are copied and still point to the same location on the hard drive. T...

e2fsck fixed newest.img and it mounts fine with: sudo mount newest.img /temp sudo mount -o loop,ro newest.img /temp sudo mount -o loop,rw newest.img /temp What I was trying to explain about dd is that if you restore an image to two partitions, not only with the UUIDs will be identical, but the inode...

mount: [image.img]: failed to setup loop device: Operation not permitted (SOLVED)

Mint 18 Mate 64 4.15.0-34-generic Hello, for years I've been using 'dd' command to create .img files of partitions, and restoring them by mounting them and rsyncing them to the target partition. I've never encountered any problems mounting my .img files until today when I noticed my newest .img file...

Change 'Cloned MAC address' in 'Network Connections' from command line?? SOLVED

Linux Mint 18 Sarah, 4.15.0-34-generic I've tried changing my MAC address using macchanger and ifconfig methods but neither of these will reflect changes on my eth0 connection in Network Connections.

Re: kernel update requires change to mount command?

Oh man I'm confused. I don't know how I got that mixed up. I'm pretty sure I read somewhere there was at least one vulnerability 4.4 didn't fix. Hm, I'll look into it. UPDATE: Ok, so what it is, is, my 4.4.0-21 was not patched AFAIK ( other 4.4's per your link are ) but I switched to 4.15.0-34 becau...

Re: kernel update requires change to mount command?

Well I'm upgrading to 4.15 because 4.4 doesn't have the Spectre/Meltdown fix, so I won't be using 4.4 anymore. When I list kernels in Update Manager I don't see any tabs. When I click on 'changelog' link https://changelogs.ubuntu.com/changelogs/pool/main/l/linux/linux_4.15.0-34.37~16.04.1/changelog ...

kernel update requires change to mount command?

Hi, I updated my kernel from 4.4 to 4.15 and now suddenly mount command works differently. I used to: mount [disk dump image] /mountpoint but now that same command produces an error: failed to setup loop device: Operation not permitted adding '-o loop,ro' fixes it, but I'm just wondering if there's ...

What's this special character called?
I don't remember where I found it. One of the fonts that comes with Mint. Noto Mono U+2000 seems to work.

But it's stressing me out! :lol:
Sorry about it :lol:

Re: Forum edits my posts, deletes spaces... Not cool. :(

Sorry, this confuses me... do you post things for yourself to read, or for others to read? For most people, double or triple spaces do not make texts easier to read. I'm sorry to hear that reading is hard for you, though. That must be tough. I fail to understand how separating sentences by a few ex...

You apparently are in the category of people who write " run on sentences " and never once use the <return key> to help format the display so that it is readable. the problem here is, your screen may be 43 characters wide, while my screen is 120 characters wide.

Re: I'm finding my OS .iso images created with dd getting corrupted. Why?

Hm. I've been using 'dd' ( disk dump ) to create .iso images for years with perfect success until whatever caused this corruption. Well even if it's not creating ISO format, the data is stored in .iso file, which I've always used to restore OS file systems with no issues. In this case, the .iso exte...

Why does the forum convert my double or triple spaces into single spaces? Doing so makes sentences appear to run together and is harder to read; I got enough eye strain as it is looking at this screen all day! Please don't modify my post text.
