Re: dmesg ecryptfs error me thinks

Thanks, for the explanation. Any reason you can think of for the error ? I have just read this https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/04/how-to-encrypt-home-folder-in-ubuntu.html Which says that ubuntu no longer support encrypted home driver option as part of their installer. So why does mint make it av...

dmesg ecryptfs error me thinks

Hi installed Mint 19.1 cinnamon. I ticked the option to encrypt my homedir.

Re: 4.10.27 kernel doesn't boot on my laptop

How do you downgrade the kernel?
I have installed 4.4.83 but the update manager won't let me set it as active?
Do I have to boot with that kernel and then make it active ?

4.10.27 kernel doesn't boot on my laptop

Hi,
Just updated to 18.2. I then updated to 4.10.27 kernel.
This ended up with my PC booting into emergency mode!

I have now switched back to 4.8.

1) I thought 4.9 was LTS kernel? So why has mint moved to 4.10
2) I believe 4.8 is no longer supported. What should I do?

Re: No nm applet lock symbol when connecting to vpn

Thanks. Although my home / is not on a separate partition.

This default network applet is very dark though.

Is there any way to invert the colours?

No nm applet lock symbol when connecting to vpn

Hi,

Have just upgraded from 17.3 to 18. (64bit)
When I connect to my vpn provider I no longer get the vpn lock symbol.
I can see the tun0 network interface via ifconfig and it seems to work,
but I no longer get the visual indication via the nm applet.

Re: Installation of Evolution

I think it was as follows:
sudo -s
mkdir /usr/share/evolution
mkdir /usr/share/evolution/icons
ln -s /usr/share/evolution/icons/ /usr/share/evolution/ico
apt-get install evolution

Re: Installation of Evolution

Tried ianni67's shell stuff and that worked. Had to manually create the evolution dir and ico dir first though. When I started evolution it said that evolution 3.13.7 is not a stable release. So is that the issue? Anyway, thanks to all. It seems to work and I can now scale html mail :D which never w...

Installation of Evolution

Hi, Started using linux in May. Have been using Thunderbird on Windows for a long time, but as Mozilla is going to let it die want to try another email client. As Evolution is the one bundled with Unbuntu thought I would try and install it. I am using Linux Mint 17 3.13.0-24-generic #47-Ubuntu SMP F...
