Re: UnlockMe tweaks for Linux Mint

That's how I had it the first time around (great minds think alike :lol: ) but when the dialog is maximized it puts too much content to the left of the screen while the right side is almost empty. I personally like the having that space below the icon but I may revert it once again. The change is tr...

Re: UnlockMe tweaks for Linux Mint

I understand Misko_2083, thank you. You did the whole thing there for me already. I'm going to implement it during the next update batch. I'm already working on it but my time is limited atm. I'm using plain text files for the info tab descriptions but that was just few of the minor changes that I'v...

Re: UnlockMe tweaks for Linux Mint

Thank you for this: I had to do a fresh install as the result of a crash. I thought that I had set Swappiness and that was a "done deal", when I saw it as a Menu Item I did a look see.... and duh! it was at the default of '60'. guess my memory as to when I did that was in error.... I like that as a...

Hi Ralphy, Have you considered doing something like this? :D #!/bin/bash fkey=$(($RANDOM * $$)) export wpipe="/tmp/wooloo.$RANDOM" mkfifo $wpipe export sel_pipe="/tmp/wahooo.$RANDOM" #trap to remove temp files on exit trap "rm -f $wpipe $sel_pipe" EXIT exec 3<> $wpipe function display_info() { # Fo...

Re: UnlockMe tweaks for Linux Mint

Just commited new changes - compton config Editor and a new default compton.conf to be able to manage compton from a simple UI.

If you're running Xfce you may well welcome the addition :)

Can you help to keep a mirror alive?

Hi all, I've created a GoFundMe campaign asking fellows to help me keep a Linux mirror alive. The servers are only 5 days away from being shutdown, so I wanted to post and make others aware. I'm asking for financial help and asking for money is hard. I don't feel comfortable doing so. Please, if you...

Re: apt-get update failing - Hash Sum mismatch

Does anybody have an explanation for that? Is that a problem with the servers, my Internet connection, or could it be a local issue? I don't believe this to be a problem with your installation. I've experienced the same with some mirrors. Either the files were synchronizing while you were getting u...

Re: Packages Mirror and few other questions

Well, it seems that the latest changes really made a difference :) I have not experienced a single timeout when connecting to extra.linuxmint.com for at least 2 weeks now. Thanks to all Mint users who have switched to a mirror other than packages.linuxmint.com. If you haven't switched mirror yet, pl...

Works just fine. :D I probably wouldn't recommend this approach to newbie users that don't know what they're doing... and I'd prefer the Linux Mint project to fix it officially, but for my purposes this is enough. :) Martin, Clem advised not to mirror 'extra' hence I have removed it ...

It seems this is also going to be addressed in the next release. A less aggressive interval will be implemented.

Re: repositories list error

Recommendation for all users: USE A DIFFERENT MIRROR other than packages.linuxmint.com. Seriously. The issue is going to be addressed in the next release. Clem, Linux Mint Project Leader, was very kind to share some insights in the dev channel. Currently, when checking mirrors in Software Sources t...

Re: Linux Mint and Windows DHCP Server

Oh, you actually mentioned there were no domain controllers on the network. Well, i'm going to shot in the dark here to see if somehow it helps you troubleshoot it. First a question though... is it the Windows Server or the Mint client giving the error? 1- Can you check in the DHCP server scope whet...

Re: Solid state drive optimization

noatime advantages and disadvantages has its arguments both ways so I will not get into it. I simply leave fstab configuration alone whenever possible. Those changes (with a small mistake) is probably what made the system un-bootable. There are other things you can do to optimize your SSD drive. I t...

Re: Linux Mint and Windows DHCP Server

Hi, I don't believe Linux Mint installation to be the problem but a coincidental issue that happened when Mint was installed. The DHCP server should be serving a scope or multiple scopes in your network. The 'Authorization' issue happens between the DHCP server and your Active Directory. Before goin...

martijn.niji, you could try using the mirror in my post above if you are comfortable adding it manually (it isn't in the official mirror list yet) and you will be served from the servers in EU.

Re: Packages Mirror and few other questions

Hi all, here is the Anycast mirror: Packages: http://mirror.unlockforus.com/linuxmint/packages/ I'm not sure if adding it as an 'Additional Repository' is good enough (I didn't test that scenario). I tested it by adding it to the 'Additional repositories'. It doesn't work just as an additional repo...
