Can't go back from Nvidia drivers to nouveau

LM 19. A week ago or so I opened the Driver Manager, saw radio buttons: nvidia driver and xserver nouveau, the latter one checked. I checked nvidia, then clicked Apply changes, then waited until the process completed, then was prompted to reboot then clicked 'Reboot'. Today I changed my mind. I went...

Re: Good backup software?

Well, at least in my install of LM 19, and it seems the inquirer's install, the USB drive does not show up in media at all, until I used Disks to mount it. ?? Never had such problems. In my LM19 installation USBs do show up in media w/o problems. No special configuration needed. Maybe you disabled ...

Ah. Well, it's hard to say anything at this point, we'd need more information.

Re: Good backup software?

Basically in a NutShell, you have to set up the extUSB to be accessed via media/username/ USB drives are mounted there by default. No need to manually set this up. I am thinking the issue boils down to the GUI that removed a link from the sidebar rather than improperly configured OS. (edit... I dea...

Re: Selenium packaging...

IIUC the reason is that the provided firefoxdriver is obsolete for new Firefox and/or Selenium versions and instead geckodriver should be packaged. Does Ubuntu ship recent firefox versions? If yes then this is broken there as well. If not then I should install ubuntu and check if it works there befo...

The general response to that we'll give you here is to do a clean install then. Upgrades are known to create issues, and it's rarely worth the time trying to find out what happened.
My bad. By "upgrade" I meant clean install. I formatted the old LM18.1 partition and installed LM19 cleanly.

If you are convinced the error is on your end maybe try a different DNS server, at least that would be the first thing I would check.
Problem is, the first time I started experiencing these was when I upgraded from LM18.1 to LM19.

The forums here have irregular short timeouts several times a day. You get used to it, usually recovers after a minute or less.
Except the forums are not the only site that produces these errors, as I was saying in both of my posts above.

apt fixes some problems in apt-get. apt-get should be used for Mint 17.x, and apt should be preferred for 18 and later.
Thank you!

Though, could you be a little bit more specific?

Re: Server not found errors

Same stuff again. forums.linuxmint.com not working, google working, downforeveryoneorjustme.com not working, switching ethernet off and on seems to have fixed the issue.

You already have the best backup system: the command line utility called rsync. Took time to read its lengthy manual, but looks promising. Thanks. Let's see how it works... Manually, via Copy & Paste. I used to be doing that as well. But apparently Im too sloppy. My backups ended up as an unbearabl...

Good backup software?

Firstly, I used to just merge my home folder with the backupped home folder on an external HDD. This had its drawbacks: When I removed a file on my computer, this removed file still persisted in the backup. This matters in a few cases: I may manually merge two text files in a larger file, or I may m...
