Re: How to stop GnuGP from caching the 'secret key' ?

I was successful installing the conf editor and changing the parameters to 60 secs not 120.... I rechecked the settings, rebooted and opened a GPG file. I deleted the result and waited 1 minute and went back to the encrypted file, clicked it and it again asked me for the pass phrase, it didn't autom...

Re: How to stop GnuGP from caching the 'secret key' ?

In your example "continued for Mint 17.x" Is that ALL that needs done before you get down to the line "It is possible to do that in terminal, anyway, double-check it with dconf-editor again (because there is inconsistency between applications and dconf and gconf): ?/" IE: will do...

Re: How to stop GnuGP from caching the 'secret key' ?

Hi t42, Thank you for the extensive instructions. Given my ineptness with creating files and editing them successfully I think I'm better off using the terminal commands. I don't like the way it is now but it works, I don't want to botch it up so it doesn't :( Of course I can reboot each time I am d...

How to stop GnuGP from caching the 'secret key' ?

I just noticed that GnuGP stores my secret key from one use to another if I don't entirely shut down the OS each time. I normally like to have it on standby even though it makes me lose my audio. If I right click an encrypted file to decrypt it, the next time I go to that file or any encrypted one i...

Re: Upgraded to 17.3 but still have the old kernel

Thank you both, the reason I wanted a new kernel was that I have trouble with losing my audio once the machine has been put on standby and brought back up. Doesn't happen all the time but enough to be annoying. I like to use stanby/sleep because I am on and off the computer during the day numerous t...

[SOLVED] Upgraded to 17.3 but still have the old kernel

I used the update manager to move from 17.2 to 17.3, I hoped I would get the newer kernel used in Rosa, of course I didn't. yes I know I can go to the updater and get the kernel 3.19.0-32 from there, but then I have to choose that kernel on every boot up after that, choosing it doesn't make it stay....

Re: {SOLVED} grub rescue message after install of disk image

This is a common problem apparently I read that Grub is made to ignore sector 32 so FlexNet won't bother it. It's installed by Adobe for one, even trial versions of some software use it. Tons of info about it on the 'net, I'm going to ignore it! "ES" there is a way to erase Sector 32 only....

Re: {SOLVED} grub rescue message after install of disk image

That Flexnet sounds very undesirable. I have never had any experience with it. Yeah it doesn't sound good, and I have never seen a program with any connection to that name. I still don't know why I lost the Grub menu and only got the Windows Boot Manager, all I could get was that, and a boot to 7. ...

austin.texas, I couldn't boot to Mint today so I used the flash drive MBR and it worked great, Without using it I could only get to W7 I couldn't even get to the Grub menu w/o the thumb drive!

My audio card isn't listed, yet I have sound, but I lose it sometimes on 'wake up'

At times when taking Mint 17.2 off standby I lose the sound, I can open a terminal to restore it OR if I toggle the sound card choice from Default to HD Intel and then back again SOMETIMES it will restore the sound as well. However that technique doesn't always work and I must reboot. Why won't the ...

Re: {SOLVED} grub rescue message after install of disk image

austin, You were correct I can boot to W7 as before in the Grub boot menu, as for the typos in the terminal commands, I guess the best thing is don't type anything until you are fully awake. :oops: Here are two screenshots of that darned BCD program showing all the choices I have to point it to wher...

Hello hcentaur13, and austin.texas, Your post couldn't have come at a better time. All was fine until yesterday, I was using Acronis, not to create an image, but to install a program to test it out. Acronis makes a safe area on the HD for you to install things and run them, if you want to keep the p...

Re: {SOLVED} grub rescue message after install of disk image

There are other files on the flash drive I didn't think that would matter Right. I described using my flash drive to play mp3 files in the car. I expected to find one with named Grub.xxx or something. Wrong. When you install Grub to /dev/sdg that makes the flash drive bootable. You will see no file...

Re: {SOLVED} grub rescue message after install of disk image

I see that the Grub backup file has no extension and is basically a script, or it appears to me to be. What file is it that you are referring to, exactly? The only file that looked like a backup file after running the command sudo grbu-install /dev/sdg I will say I thought it was odd and it was emb...

Re: {SOLVED} grub rescue message after install of disk image

Hi austin.texas, Well I take that back, now that I remember I was trying to update my BIOS, to possibly fix a nagging problem in W7. I was never able to get it to boot and never updated the BIOS. You are correct removing the boot flag didn't change anything. But taking off the "1" sure did...

austin, I got that location from Gparted it shows the thumb drive as being /dev/sdg1 The names of the parttions start at /sda 1 to 4, then sdb1 ( my storage drive ) then to sdg1 , my flash drive, however it shows a boot flag on the flash drive. Could that be the reason? I know weeks ago I tried unsu...

Re: grub rescue message after install of disk image

I am afraid that is a EBCD problem - and I know nothing about how to fix that. However, there is one little trick you can do to make sure you can boot Mint (after you fix EBCD). You can "back up" your Grub menu to a flash drive. For example, I have a 8GB flash drive with 1200 mp3 files on...

"ES"

That needs to be done as administrator (using sudo)

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get autoremove


Of course that worked, sure hope they were unnecessary! :wink:

"ES"
