Re: LMDE 4

I have been bitten a couple of times with Ubuntu's delta over Debian, which is why I like LMDE, it is, especially with 3, a lot of Debian with just the right amount of sugar on top. ...snip... But this is YMMV territory, so I would not want to suggest it will work for you, all I can do is note it h...

Re: LMDE 4

I use MX Linux as my Plex server. It is included in MX package manager. I had to boot into the systemd kernel instead of the sysVinit kernel to keep it working correctly. I would just use Windows or Main Mint for Plex at this point though. Debian is a PITA on occasion with Plex and not worth the ag...

Re: LMDE 4

I wanted to chime in on things.......... as a long time (2? 3? years) Mint user, I recently toyed with the idea of moving my Plex/media/storage server from Mint 19.2 to Debian 10 stable. Figured, since Mint is based off Ubuntu which is based off Debian..... why not just go straight to the source and...

Re: Nemo and terminal shortcuts keep disappearing from my panel

On a hunch run sudo chown -Rc $USER:$USER $HOME to fix any file ownership issues in your home folder that might be preventing settings sticking properly. If that doesn't fix the issue after logging in and out of Cinnamon see if the issue happens on a fresh temporary user account. Carried out that c...

Nemo and terminal shortcuts keep disappearing from my panel

Along with TimeShift not working on a fresh install of Mint 19.2 Cinnamon and problems with no feedback when I'm unlocking the screensaver..... another problem I keep running into (kinda annoying) is that the shortcuts to Nemo and Terminal keep, randomly disappearing from my panel. Never had this pr...

Re: I always thought NFS sharing was superior to Samba but now I'm second guessig that thought

It appears that your /etc/exports has errors. /mnt/md0/pics 192.168.1.1/24(ro,insecure,sync,all_squash,nohide,no_subtree_check,anonuid=1000,anongid=1000) The above line says "Share with 192.168.1.1 on submask 255.255.255.0 only".

Check your system messages. I'm betting that this array is being configured after your NFS server is starting up.
Good news, adding that delay seems to have fixed it! Thank you!!!!

Re: The option to 'Lock the computer after screensaver starts' is causing me problems

Ctrl-Alt-Esc preserves the session, so see if that works to make the lock screen responsive again. I've very rarely come across this issue personally and only in a multi-user scenario...i.e when I've left the machine locked, my wife has switched user from the lock screen, and then the machine has g...

Check your system messages. I'm betting that this array is being configured after your NFS server is starting up.

Re: Why does Timeshift hate me?

you would need to un-install that older version, via Package Manager aka synaptic, - before you tried out that older version. Done. Removed the version that ships with Mint 19.2 and reverted to the OLD version from that other post I linked and Timeshift is working again. Really wish the Mint develo...

Weird warning when sharing a folder with Samba

Fresh install of Mint 19.2 Cinnamon... trying to share a folder with Samba.... what does that warning mean? Did some Googling around and couldn't find anything that 100% applied. The share still worked as intended, just wondering if I should worry about that. Screenshot from 2019-08-29 20-54-39.png

Solution: adding ExecStartPre=/bin/sleep 15 ... to the nfs-server.service file fixed everything. ajgringo619's suggestion was right on the money! Trying to figure this problem out. On my fresh install of Mint 19.2 (Cinnamon), I set up NFS sharing as I didn't want to bother with Samba. Here are a few...

Solution: grab the version of Timeshift from the old post I linked. It's crappy that I need to revert to an older version of TS with Mint 19.2 but it is what it is.

This issue has come up for various people over various Cinnamon versions but is by no means universal or even 100% reproducible for those that suffer it so is hard to troubleshoot Blind typing your password and hitting enter may well work or restarting Cinnamon with the Ctrl-Alt-Esc keyboard shortc...
