Re: Using Timeshift and backing up /home

Is it a good idea to include the /home directory during the Timeshift snapshot process? Why or why not? I already gave you a direct answer to that question. What is in the response that you don't understand? I simply rephrased the question into a form that it should have been in originally. I didn'...

Re: Using Timeshift and backing up /home

Let me rephrase the question into the form it should have been in the first time. Is it a good idea to include the /home directory during the Timeshift snapshot process? Why or why not? I tried to be as clear as I could that I understood that Timeshift is not a backup process, but the topic title an...

[SOLVED]Using Timeshift and backing up /home

Hello everyone, I just began using Timeshift (due to my habit of screwing things up) and as many of you know, you can select just /root or /home or both. I was wondering if it's typical to backup the /home directory, since by default it's unselected. It seems that I would want to, but I'm not sure. ...

Hello, I decided to remove the Brave browser from Mint19 tonight. After doing so, I tried to exit the software manager and it hung. I figured I'd reboot to clear whatever the issue was, and now I can't boot without Cinnamon crashing. "Cinnamon has crashed. Would you like to restart?" Selec...

The problem has been resolved. I followed karlchen's instructions, and I'm in business. This made the process very easy, and I'm going to be set up exactly the way that I want. Everything works.

Re: Installing tarballs

Thank you all! This thread has been very informative for me. I'm still grasping the way Linux handles applications and the specific locations. Karlchen - when I entered the first command line, I was led to the GNU nano 2.9.3. It shows me that I'm editing "/var/tmp/ubuntuzillaxx8j16vG.list"...

Re: Strange Realtek sound issue

Hi moze229. I wasn't using Linux back when 17.x was active, so not sure what changed, but this should work to get you what you want. In the terminal run alsamixer . You may need to press F6 to select the appropriate sound card. Arrow over to the column named Auto-Mute Mode, then press the down arro...

Re: [SOLVED]Updates began failing - Mint 19

Thanks. My system time was not set. Apparently, the repository won't accept update requests from machines that the time is not correct on. I hadn't been setting the time in Mint, because when I do, it changes the time in Windows and vice versa. It's always 5 hours off. I suppose Mint actually change...

Re: Which kernel should I be using in 19?

Those short-term kernels are called HWE (Hardware Enablement) kernels. Read the links below for more info. My suggestion is to stick to the 4.15 series, as you noted it is a long-term supported kernel. Just keep updating to the latest in the 4.15 family. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/RollingLTSEna...

Hello. Doing updates today, I noticed that there are quite a few kernels available. 4.15 and 4.18 versions. I'm currently running the newest 4.15 version that says it's supported until 2023.
