Re: Evolution 3.28.5 & Office 365 "Orphaned" Calendar Item

Hello, silvatech: Thank you for your response; I apologize for my slow reply. You bring up a good post, as I also found the same post, as I was Googling around, prior to posting this thread in the Linux Mint forums. Unfortunately, the post you directed me to either does not help me and/or I do not q...

Evolution 3.28.5 & Office 365 "Orphaned" Calendar Item

Hello, all: I have been switching clients over to Evolution from Thunderbird, due to Evolution's likeness to Outlook and its compatibility with Office/Microsoft 365 accounts. Everything has been working very well, until the other day. I have a client who was adding appointments to their calendar and...

Re: New OS Build: BIOS (with MBR HDDs) or UEFI (without Secure Boot) (with GPT HDDs)

Not to poke a hornet's nest, I concur. If the mobo came with UEFI, it will likey work the best that way. CSM is a "patch" to simulate Legacy. Each manufacture has their own way of cobbling it together, some better than others. I too, have used it for years without problems. There are rare...

No problem with EFI. Been using it for 5 years +. If it's a self built desktop with a decent motherboard you'll be fine.
Hello, mr_raider:

Thank you for your valuable input. Yes, this is a custom-built system--so, outlook should be good. :) Thanks, again!

Thanks for your pointers, rene. It does not make sense to me, either. I will do more Googling on libinput and look into those manpages you referenced.

Re: Left Mouse Button not working properly

There are no specific "Dell" mouse drivers within Linux. Details can be tweaked for specific mice in the general X.org driver but I quite expect this to be a simple hardware issue: your mouse dying or needing a clean. I know this is an old post; however, I am having problems with a newly-...

Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

Isn't it that by default users have read access to each other's home directories? Shouldn't need to run the backup program as root with write access to your entire operating system for that. Or you could add their groups to your account so you have full access. Or see if Deja Dup supports pkexec or...

Re: gksu removed from the repo's of Ubuntu 18.04

This raises a question. Now, when I use Backups (deja-dup) to backup all users' home directories on a system, via "gksudo deja-dup-preferences," I get prompted for the admin/root password. And, after typing that in, I can backup all users' home directories, graphically. In Ubuntu 18.04, ho...
