Re: Grab and Drag for LM doesn't work w/new Firefox.. =/

I discovered that noscript and agent switcher also didn't work with the new firefox. Legacy add ons. However I went to the list and it automatically recommends replacements for any disabled legacy extension. So I would check that. If there's no replacement option showing then I guess the answer is n...

Re: 18.3 Timeshift question

Had thought about a USB drive. Starting to think putting it on an encrypted data partition ( mount at boot ), or just leaving it in Home ( encrypted ) and taking the risk on portable devices might be the best idea. I had a quick scan through some readable files stored in the snapshot folder and it c...

Re: Installing new Firefox 57 Quantum

Talking of Legacy Add Ons... the update 'killed' noscript ( apparently 10 is coming soon ) and Agent Switcher..... irritating.

Re: 18.3 Timeshift question

The best place would be on a separate disc entirely. Yeah I hear that mate. I'm thinking more along the lines of if that's not an option, like, say, on a laptop out and about. Maybe I need to look deeper into the timeshift options but there doesn’t appear to be a setting to specify the time snapsho...

Re: NTFS Partition to EXT4

Ext should auto mount on boot. If it doesn't its simple enough to use the mount command to place the device into a created folder in home. sudo mount /dev Ext partitions are owned by root so you will be required to give your user account permission, example below. Disk being the name of the folder I...

Re: 18.3 Timeshift question

Yeah I'm aware of the different fors and against regarding encryption... I'm using it on my laptop for my home folder.. you never know ;) Timeshift is actually pretty easy, once you know what you're doing of course and a damn good reason to update to 18.3 once its released proper. I've already set i...

18.3 Timeshift question

Ok probably not actually a question but more looking for agreement on an idea here. System set up with separate Boot, Swap and home partitions. Home is encrypted. I've noticed timeshift snapshots can only be stored on ext file systems. ( I do have another storage drive in ext4 but that's not really ...

Re: Built-in audio for 2nd user

You can set a root password with sudo passwd If you wish, but its not entirely necessary. The fact that you have sound on a guest and your main account suggests its a configuration issue on your wife’s account. It could be a permissions issue but I don't see how. Maybe this is one for the gurus arou...

Re: 18.2 installer crashing

Isn’t there an issue with the kernel not supporting Ryzen under 18.2? Don't quote me but I'm sure I've read that here.

Try installing 18.3 Beta, comes with Kernel: 4.10.0-38.

I've been running it fine under intel since yesterday.

Re: Built-in audio for 2nd user

Hmmm... to confirm, your main account works ok, you've got sound? Try logging into the system as a guest and check that it has audio. confirm yes or no. Provide the results of inxi -Fxz Thinking it may be a configuration issue on your wife’s account. Lets take a look at this too. cat /etc/pulse/clie...

Is it possible that you have firejail installed/ running? [u]Note: this is a user setting, so repeat this in each user account.[/u] Fix a sound issue (PulseAudio) caused by Firejail 4. When you run Firejail, it will probably cause problems with sound and playback. If so, you can fix it like this: La...

Re: time not equal to bios

I'm not sure if this is what you need in this case as I use this command in Linux to correct the time discrepancy between my Linux install and Windows. One works on system time and the other local time ( think it takes it from the 'net ). Try it.

Code: Select all

Not very helpful is it? I guess try it if you do have problems would be the best way to go.
