Re: Network Manager does not randomize WLAN MAC when scanning

Re: Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon slow on battery power

I thought I should add something I've noticed. From time to time I see weird flashes on the screen, after switching to using the Intel GPU, what could this be? Not sure about that unfortunately. You could try installing another kernel from the update manager (from what i remember intel graphics dri...

Re: Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon slow on battery power

Hey krow7, apologies for late response No worries :) I would definitely try switching to Intel GPU to see if the issue occurs there as well (if that is a possibility). This is useful for 2 reasons: Since you are using TLP, its quite possible that it is throttling your Nvidia GPU to such and extent ...

Re: Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon slow on battery power

Hey Mechmayhem, I have never had any dealings with Nvidia+Intel. But this does seem like a Graphics issue. Did you install Nvidia graphics (GPU) drivers for your card (from Driver Manager in menu)? If not, I highly suggest you do as Nvidia open-source driver is know to be sub-par. (Dont forget to re...

[SOLVED] Network Manager does not randomize WLAN MAC when scanning

Hi everyone, Trying to find the cause, why Network Managers (NM) WLAN MAC randomization does not work in Mint.

Re: Cannot make Firefox (Ubuntu version) default

There's no reason to put those specifically in the /etc/apt/preferences.d/official-package-repositories.pref file. Just create your own preferences file. Say create the file /etc/apt/preferences.d/firefox-ubuntu.pref and don't forget you want the priority higher than Linux Mint's import repository....

So "Alert volume + Custom sound (not default)" doesn't work? Are you sure? Works perfectly in my case.

Re: vboxclient the virtualbox kernel service is not running

If I delete them, then Mint in the VM will not work properky, right? What can I then do? You need them on your guest environment but not host. On your host system you can purge these files with this - sudo apt-get --purge autoremove virtualbox-guest-* Then reboot. On your guest system you have 2 op...

sudo apt-get --purge autoremove virtualbox-guest-* It should remove the 3 packages responsible for this problem. Don't forget to reboot. yes, this worked for me - as mentioned above, it removed more than just 3 packages, but is now fixed. Glad it worked for you! From what I gather, you might have h...
