Re: Sound stops working after a few hours on Mint 20 Cinnamon

Follow up. Now that the 5.8 kernel has been made available the power management/sound issue/reboot issue is gone.

Re: Brother MFC-L2750 no longer scans after upgrade to Mint 20

Brian, for now I removed ippusbxd so that I immediately have scanning capability and it worked as you implied. Both Simplescan and Xsane work as they did before. I will do more investigation per your suggestions later. I did have to switch the printer side to point to the USB URI instead of the ipp ...

Brother MFC-L2750 no longer scans after upgrade to Mint 20 - Solved

I have a Brother MFC-L2750DW printer/scanner which worked flawlessly from Mint 19.1 through Mint 19.3. It is USB connected. Last week I performed the upgrade from 19.3 to 20 and everything works just fine except I can no longer use the scanner function. The scan applications all see the device but w...

Re: Cannot shutdown or reboot on Mint 20 if power mgt turns off display

In this case, the 5.4 kernels show the same problem with either 19.3 or 20 of Mint depending on my power management settings. The 5.3 kernel does not show any issues on either 19.3 or 20 no matter what my power management settings are. This implies that there is a negative interaction between the 5....

OK. I'll do just that and open a thread in power management. Thank you for all your assistance in this matter.

Re: Sound stops working after a few hours on Mint 20 Cinnamon

So the same sound failure occurs on the downgraded version of Pulseaudio. I will upgrade back to the current version of pulseaudio.

Re: Sound stops working after a few hours on Mint 20 Cinnamon

Sorry the delay in the data. I'm running some experiments because I may have found a link between pulseaudio hanging, the 5.4 kernel, and the power management settings on my system.

Re: Sound stops working after a few hours on Mint 20 Cinnamon

When the sound goes out, I cannot shutdown or reboot the system. If I select shutdown or reboot from the menu then I get a black screen with the Linux Mint icon in the middle and it will sit there indefinitely without shutting down or rebooting. I have let it sit there for 45 minutes with no change....

Re: Sound stops working after a few hours on Mint 20 Cinnamon

Thank you. Ill wait until confirmation. I mentioned above that I had the exact same issue with Mint 19.3 and any of the 5.4.0.x kernels, unless you mean 19.3 and 20 use the same version of pulseaudio. Pulseaudio did not hang at all with the 5.3.0.x kernels. Not sure why but pulseaudio process(es) ca...

Re: Kernel 5.4 in Update Manager

I have updated to the 5.4.0-37 kernel and all seemed fine at first. After a while (approx. 2 hours) I lose sound. I also find that my system will neither reboot or shutdown. I have to force it off with the power button on my system. My audio support is from a Realtek ALC294 chipset. Other than these...

After that my system will not shutdown or restart without having to perform the power off/on sequence. I booted to the...

Thank you everyone here on this topic. I purchased an MFC-L2750DW yesterday for my Cinnamon Mint 19.1 system. I followed all the advice and links to the pre-reqs and my install went off without any issues. I can print and scan without having to jump through any hoops.
