Re: Always eject wrong password?

Just a thought - have you maybe changed from UK English to US English or vice-versa recently, as there are a couple of differences in the US and UK keyboard layouts that might screw up your password. The " and the @ symbols swap places for instance. You could perhaps check that the language setting ...

Re: Time and date

Click on 'Menu' (bottom left of panel) > look for 'Applets' in 'Preferences' or 'All Applications' > then look for 'Calendar' and install it.

Re: Can't delete folder in /opt directory

You could open the OPT folder as Root, by right clicking it and entering your admin password when prompted.
Don't forget to close it when done.

Re: Unable to boot into live usb or system. Completely locked out. Help!

Just a thought from remembering Windows fault finding:- Maybe check that the RAM modules are firmly seated in their slots - (easy to check anyway when running out of ideas). If loose, that could give an intermittent fault - though on more remembering - perhaps that used to give a "No operating syste...

Re: Russian language installation in Linux Mint Cinnamon

As you have had no feedback so far, perhaps you might try the Russian language section of this forum? It's right at the very bottom of the main 'Board Index' under 'Other Languages'. (I'm assuming you speak Russian of course). Anyway this reply will give your question a 'bump' so it might catch more...

Re: How to prevent image viewer from auto-opening every image I download?

Re: Nemo date options

How about:

Install 'Dconf-editor' from Software Manager

then

Open ‘dconf editor’

org > nemo > preferences > 'date-format' and change 'value' to desired format of 'locale', 'iso' or 'informal'.

Personally I prefer 'ISO' as it's naturally sortable but YMMV.

Re: Verifying ISO

Open terminal and type sha256sum [drag your ISO or other file here] - after the space Press 'Enter' and check the result against the original h...

@bassman59 If you look around that Crucial site there's a quite a lot of additional information on memory how's and why's, e.g. https://uk.crucial.com/ (Memory finder for computer make/types) https://www.crucial.com/usa/en/support-memory-speeds-compatability http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-...

Re: Linux Mint Very Slow

@bassman59 I believe so - if you can get it cheaper somewhere else. The larger units on the lower part of the page DO seem pretty expensive. Been a few years since I bought any memory - think it'll probably stay that way too! :) EDIT - I usually stuck with Crucial though as I didn't do it often, but...

@allanr I've inadvertently found a reliable workaround (at least for me) for the "gnome-keyring-daemon not responding" issue. My wife wanted a simpler / more direct way to shut down her laptop and I found the Session Manager applet fitted the bill nicely. Trying out the applet on my PC first, I real...

Re: A more appropriate Mint screen-shot

"Rants"?

Hardly a 'rant' I think. Maybe just an attempt at a lengthy explanation.
Not everyone on these pages is a native English speaker either.

Re: Use of TimeShift for 2 systems

Well I'm only talking of 'manual' backups of course, as - though I COULD do unattended auto backups, I wouldn't be able to identify which machine had made them without that identifying note in the comment line.

Re: Use of TimeShift for 2 systems

Wouldn't it be sufficient just to identify each backup (as you make it) by adding the computer ID to the 'comment' line in the Timeshift snapshot list (as that's what I do). All my Linux Mint 18.3 backups from 2 laptops, 1 desktop and one 64GB USB stick go to a single 'timeshift' folder on a 200GB e...
