Re: Resolution not scaling correctly to TV (2)

I did some testing and changing the xrandr --panning command won't help. Try these commands: xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1680x1050 --panning 1680x1050 --transform 1.1,0,-87,0,1.1,-59,0,0,1 xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1680x1050 --transform 1.1,0,-87,0,1.1,-59,0,0,1 I tried these now. They do not...

Re: Resolution not scaling correctly to TV (2)

I would prefer to have this setting at the login screen already. Open the File Manager. Create a document in Home (/home/your-user-name) named .login and add the xrandr command. Right click on the file and select Properties > Permissions . Mark the checkbox next to Allow executing file as program ....

Re: Resolution not scaling correctly to TV (2)

1) Really a major issue: After restarting the pc, the transform settings are reset, obviously. I have to run this command again (after every restart of the pc). How to set these transform setting permanently? Open Startup Applications and click the plus sign to create a Custom command . For the Com...

Re: Resolution not scaling correctly to TV (2)

Thanks for this hint and clear explanation. It works for me with these settings: xrandr --output HDMI-1 --panning 1680x1050 --transform 1.1,0,-87,0,1.1,-59,0,0,1 It has two major drawbacks though. Maybe you can hint me how to solve this, too: 1) Really a major issue: After restarting the pc, the tra...

Re: Resolution not scaling correctly to TV (2)

Thanks for your reply, roblm! The first option would make it necessary to find out how to get into the mode, which TV techs can access. As I have no clue how to do this atm., I prefer the second option and present my xrandr output for examination: ~$ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1680 ...

Re: Installed Manufacture's Drivers; still no Duplex printing

Thanks again for your reply! I found a very simple solution and maybe also an explanation for this behaviour. The printer in question has no automatic duplex unit, which means principically it isn't able to duplex print, hence the Canon driver doesn't allow for a "double-sided" choice for the duplex...

Re: No space left on device for booting– timeshift inode problem?

This is a known phenomenon. You may have a look at this guide: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=318453

I hope this helps to restore your system, but as far as I see you are in the right track already.

Re: Installed Manufacture's Drivers; still no Duplex printing

Thanks for your replies!

Well, unfortunately your advices didn't solve the issue.

Do you know if the gutenprint drivers are used in Linux Mint? I can see in the package manager that gutenprint is installed but am not sure if they explicitly are used as native drivers by Mint.

Thanks in advance.

Hi everybody, Hardware: OS: Linux Mint 19.3, 64bit, Cinnamon. Printer: Canon PIXMA TS5055. I used to use the printer driver which was installed by Linux Mint right away. It works for basic tasks very well. Still, I missed esp. the duplex (double sided) printing function. This means the duplex option...

I was more focused on the root cause and neglected to mention any clean up. :wink:
I think you are are good to go.
I noticed that, but identifying the root cause may also have led to a better clean up solution. :D

Re: Timeshift screwed up system: Snapshots in Timeshift are hidden now?

The TimeShift program maintains a configuration file in the head directory of each snapshot. I believe the configuration file is probably missing due to an unexpected termination or inability to write the file due the file system space exhaustion. Please provide the output from the following comman...

Sorry for the really delayed reply! Broadly advising people to turn off a key feature of the operating system because you don't understand it is outrageous. Well, I agree in principle. it would be outrageous. Linux Mint is a wonderful operation system which I appreciate using. I'm not the expert (an...
