Re: Best Practices: how to backup my encrypted Home folder in an encrypted way?

Thanks for your Answers. Clonezilla might be an easy way to have a complete backup. However, i see three disadvantages - i need to backup always everything, or is there some incremental clonezilla? As the HDDs are encrypted, i guess rather not - i would need to shutdown my pc, run the backup over ni...

Hopefully some day it is either clearly reproducible so we can find the root cause or someone drops by...

Re: Upper left quarter of the screen becomes "unclickable"

Is this running inside Virtualbox 1.2? If so I'd have to wonder if that isn't part of the problem right there. A lot has changed since that version of VBox was released (the current version is 5.something now), both in VBox and Linux. Using such an old version to host a modern release of Mint could...

Re: Is there any usb AC wifi dongle supported by linux?

So i checked at work yesterday and when having my internal wifi blacklisted to not interfere the Edimax anyway has connection drops and instabilities. Even against a 802.11g Network. I'm guessing the driver provided is not very good. I'm not sure whether i want to spend more time debugging this and ...

Re: Is there any usb AC wifi dongle supported by linux?

Hi sebbo, the correct way to blacklist is echo "blacklist iwlwifi" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf Or you could just unload the module when you want with sudo modprobe -r iwlwifi as long as the original contents of /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf are intact. Yay. That helped. It...

hey, thanks alot for your reply!! I think you don't have an AC router if you see 10mbyte/sec. speed. Oh, of course i run an 802.11AC accesspoint, but i just realize it can only do 867Mbit/s http://www.zyxel.com/uk/en/news/press_room_20140326_827009.shtml Altough i can't really recommend it, would ra...

Re: Is there any usb AC wifi dongle supported by linux?

Hi, last week i landed in this Thread and saw that phd21 was recommending the Edimax 7833. For 48€ on Amazon, quite expensive, but i could afford it. Also i was delighted that there are drivers for the rather Old kernel i seem to have (?) in linux mint 17.3 that i am still running. It was delivered ...

Re: Laptop + Monitor -> Extend Desktop => Panel size issues

It might just work for you, though, so check it out here and here . Good luck! Thanks for the hint. Apparently using another window manager was not what i had planned. I'll try my luck in the xfce forums maybe and if nothing further helps i either have to decide to live with it until they fix it (o...

Yes. It seems like it was a broken theme. I installed a new one from xfce-look.org and now gThumb and Firefox look like i would expect it. It seems though, after i installed xfce-theme-manager a couple of weeks/months ago, that the normal Appearance settings screen is not workign anymore - i can't s...
