Is Linux Mint 19 known to be affected by the gnome_keyring_daemon problem?

As in the topic?

Were there many reports about this issue wrt LM 19?

I mean the problem that gnome_keyring_daemon was delaying system shutdown but the devs were unable to reproduce it.

Re: "Could not install the security updates"

OK, apparently mintupdate-tool is a CLI feature of mintupdate. We live and learn. :P As it was introduced in Mint 18.2, you first need to upgrade your Mint 18.1 to 18.2 or 18.3. That should give you the right version of Update Manager (mintupdate). Such an upgrade can be done in-place, like this: U...

Re: "Could not install the security updates"

Thank you for taking your time to respond... In the terminal type in sudo apt update then sudo apt upgrade this will update everything Yes but this will not show the cause of the problem, and it will not show if and what went wrong for the last time. Plus what @Moem wrote. I had that issue on one of...

"Could not install the security updates"

I run LinuxMint. I was not running it for a few weeks maybe? I run the update manager. I click Refresh. I ensure everything is ticked (I have the Update Policy set to Optimize stability and security) and click Install updates. After a few minutes a popup shows up which I presume tells me that everyt...

Re: How to switch between NVidia GPU and Intel integrated GPU

I guess the problem no longer exists.

One more reboot and the familiar icon showed up in the taskbar. Also the option to switch between GPUs appeared in nvidia x server settings. Didn't know I was supposed to reboot TWICE after installing the drivers...

How to switch between NVidia GPU and Intel integrated GPU

Back in the old days, I remember, I'd go to the Driver Manager, install NVidia drivers, and then NVidia icon would pop up in the taskbar, allowing me to switch between "low power" Intel integrated GPU and "high performance" NVidia GPU. It wasn't fully convenient, since switching between the two requ...

Re: Can I make a folder exempt from encryption?

I still don't see the point to exclude a single folder from home encryption. As soon and as long as you are logged in into your account, home is completely locked off and all content behaves exactly as in a not encrypted home. I wanted to avoid overhead. Further more: The proper place to store prog...

Re: Can I make a folder exempt from encryption?

Installation directory of a third party program. Programs are installed into the /root directory and usually 'split' between its sub-directory's /bin /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin. The user .config files for the program are stored in their own /home folder. So apart from the .config files it won't be ...

Re: What is the Mint 17.2 encryption method?

Linux Mint full disk encryption (FDE) should not cause problems with dual boot. FDE is only encrypting the Linux Mint partitions. Hmm interesting. Just tried LM18.3Cinn64b installer from liveUSB. Had Linux Mint 18.3 KDE installed previously. The installer provided an option to install LM Cinn along...

Re: Linux full disc encryption

Encrypting the home folder is not a serious or acceptable solution. Why not? :shock: In fact, it's the optimal solution. Full data encryption, but no system encryption. So much less loss of speed and much less risk of complications than with full disk encryption. Might be of interest: https://secur...

Re: A new installation always displays a message that gnome-keyring-daemin is not responding on shutdown attempt?

This problem started with Mint 18.2; in 18.3 the number of complaints have raised seriously. But the developers are not able to reproduce it. Does not look good. Since the devs are unable to reproduce it, maybe the issue was my laptop? Just tried another laptop. Problem persists. For this reason I'...

Can I make a folder exempt from encryption?

Linux Mint 18.3 KDE 64bit

This time I checked this little checkbox during installation: Encrypt home folder.

And I have a subfolder in my home folder. Which, I reason, is encrypted. Does it have to be encrypted? May I somehow mark it to be exempt from encryption?

Further problems with my fresh LM 18.3 64b KDE installation... I hate laptop built-in loudspeakers. Their sound quality is awful; also using them disturbs other people in my home. So I basically never plug my headphones out of my laptop. But now... If I boot my laptop with headphones plugged in I ha...

Re: How to disable bluetooth at startup

Followup... I just tried rebooting, after typing rfkill block bluetooth in the terminal... hah. Typing this in terminal seems to have disabled bluetooth...once and for all. Or at least, for now. My laptop booted and bluetooth did not automagically enable.

Freshly installed Linux Mint 18.3 64bit... KDE version this time for a change. Each time I boot my laptop, Bluetooth is enabled. I need to disable it manually. I found on these forums that the solution is to add rfkill block bluetooth to /etc/rc.local. However, this doesn't work. Typing rfkill block...
