Re: Linux Mint 20.1 “Ulyssa” MATE – BETA Release

Are you suggesting I type out all the bugs I find in the video?

I will, just curious as to what you're saying. :)

Re: Linux Mint 20.1 “Ulyssa” MATE – BETA Release

Here is my detailed analysis of the several bugs I encountered installing Mint MATE on bare metal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lb6rofiwYvs Great potential, but this beta definitely needs lots of work. Thanks again mint team. Please don't be too upset about my constructive criticism. I'm trying t...

Re: Default Compiz Config for all future versions of Mint MATE

I've updated the github for the beta with a link to this forum post, and also went to trello, but there's no way to add comments on trello or add cards. So it's as good as worthless. Removing compiz is a terrible idea. Why not just ship with a basic config that works? This forum post provides all th...

Re: Default Compiz Config for all future versions of Mint MATE

Like @all41, I've NEVER had a single issue with compiz. So I disagree with Pjotr opinion that it is usless junk, and should be removed from Mint, glad he doesn't make a ll the decisions. Agree 100%. MATE with Compiz is the best Desktop ever. Far beating XFCE, Unity, Enlightenment, Cinnamon, or anyt...

Re: Default Compiz Config for all future versions of Mint MATE

It's still the most advanced and impressive Desktop Environment ever made. Has been for years. I use it all the time and almost never have problems. The latest version of Mint MATE though was a downgrade, but that could be because I didn't do a fresh install. At any rate, the default config should b...

Default Compiz Config for all future versions of Mint MATE

I tried to post this repeatedly in the comments on the news bulletins, but I kept getting some Sucuri Access Denied Website Firewall error page. Clem: The default Compiz configuration is less than worthless. Please try it out and tell me otherwise. There are no window borders, you cannot manage wind...

Re: Mint 20 Mate Beta Issues, Suggestions

Added repos for AMD drivers, still not showing up in the driver manager, however the console reports they're being used. But I can't offload OBS-studio to the GPU, so something isn't right. AMD Radeon HD 5450 1gb of ram. Should handle all of Compiz and OBS simultaneously. Tempted to install Windows...

Re: Mint 20 Mate Beta Issues, Suggestions

I dissagree to statements, that MATE, GTK desktop, should come with QT applications installed by default. :!: If proposal is about K3B and other QT applications to be default, then think about proposing to return Mint KDE edition. About decorations. All they uses resources. I do not want that my MA...

Yeah, the clock always breaks the bottom panel in the last several versions of Mint MATE. I continuously have to reset the panel, and then change it back to 12 hour mode, again, and again, and again.....

Re: Mint 20 Mate Beta Issues, Suggestions

Mate stock is right around 450 mb of ram usage. With Compiz enabled I'm hitting about 670 mb of usage. Added repos for AMD drivers, still not showing up in the driver manager, however the console reports they're being used. But I can't offload OBS-studio to the GPU, so something isn't right.

Mint 20 Mate Beta Issues, Suggestions

Mint 20 Mate Beta Issues: Default app selections are poor. Gimp should be installed by default. Period. Also it should be pre-configured to be in single window mode. And be in the favorites in the Mint menu. Audacious is much lighter/better/faster than Rhythmbox which is bloated and slow. Should als...

Re: Make an .ISO from an Audio CD

dd if=/dev/cdrom of=file.iso
dd: error reading '/dev/cdrom': Input/output error
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes copied, 0.0756072 s, 0.0 kB/s

....and yes I've tried /dev/sr0 and /dev/dvdrom

Also tried as root, and several other variations.

Make an .ISO from an Audio CD

I've tried everything: DD commands, brasero (with a host of additional plugins), k3b, searching constantly: I CANNOT get an .ISO from an audio CD. Any ideas? I'm trying to make an .ISO of my OWN CD of christmas music that I recorded for myself (including one original!). So this isn't piracy. These a...
