Re: Can't Log In

Thanks, using Timeshift had occurred to me, but she is not technically minded, plus she doesn't have a USB with Mint on it to run Mint live.

Can't Log In

I installed Cinnamon Mint 19.3 64bit on to a friend's Dell Latitude E7440 with a Kingston SSD. She wanted a dual boot when I installed Linux, so it is alongside the latest Windows 10. It has worked perfectly until her cat walked over the keyboard one day when the laptop was on and running. After tha...

Re: CyberPower PowerPanel Personal Linux software

I tried that one a couple of years ago, and I just could not get it to work. I even asked for help on this forum, but could not get it resolved.

CyberPower PowerPanel Personal Linux software

I'm looking at getting a new UPS, and one of the issues I have with my APC unit is there is no Linux UPS control software from APC. However, I noticed that CyberPower does have Linux software. The only concern I have is when I was reading about it on the CyberPower site, they state it is compatible ...

Re: Tip: a super lightweight Linux

OH WOW!!

Thanks Pjotr, I installed it, and it runs flawlessly. Mint xfce 32 bit ran pretty good, but there was still a little video tearing with any browser, but this runs really well with zero video tearing.

Thanks for taking the time to post your tip about Bodhi Linux. Much appreciated.

Re: Tip: a super lightweight Linux

My computer that I'm going to try Bodhi with (specs above), is actually a pretty snappy computer with the 4Gb RAM and Samsung SSD, but the bottleneck is the video graphics. With every distro I've tried, there is video tearing. On another thread about this, I was told the video in this computer is so...

Re: Tip: a super lightweight Linux

Thanks for the tip. I think I will try it on an old/weak desktop that barely runs Mint xfce. Though the computer is a 64 bit computer, do you suggest 64 bit or 32? I only ask because I was advised in another thread on this forum to use the 32 bit version of Mint xfce, and it did seem to work a littl...

Re: Power Outage has created big system lag issue

Thanks for your reply.

I decided to try doing the Timeshift again, but this time I used the previous day's image, and it solved the problem.

Wow - thank you Mint team for Timeshift.

Power Outage has created big system lag issue (Solved)

My system has been working perfectly until this morning when the power cord to the computer got accidentally pulled from the UPS when I was doing work. After restarting the computer, every program now has a massive lag in almost everything I do including typing this, and opening new tabs in the brow...

YouTube-DLG Not Showing In Software Manager

I installed Mint Cinnamon 19.3 on a computer for a friend, and YouTube-DLG is not showing up in the software manager, but it does in my computer which also has Mint Cinnamon 19.3. How do I get it to show in the Software Manager of my friend's computer? BTW, I checked, and YouTube-DL does show as ins...

Re: Screen Tearing Problem (Solved)

Hey!! Solved! Thanks roblm.

Seems the combination of Mint xfce 19.3 in the 32 bit version with the Window Manager set to Xfwm4 + Compton did the trick.

No screen tearing, even when watching a YouTube video and scrolling at the same time. Super happy!

Re: Screen Tearing Problem (Purportedly Unsolvable)

Since you mention Firefox: On Linux Mint, the layers.acceleration.force-enabled property is by default false in Firefox (found this somewhere on the forum) You can change this to true, by enter in firefox in the adressbox about:config If it does not help you can return the value to false. OK, thank...

Re: Screen Tearing Problem (Purportedly Unsolvable)

No, I was using the 64 bit version. It is a 64 bit computer. Why would it be better to use the 32 bit version? I will try it however, as I'm running low on options - see below. I tried MX Linux and Emmabuntus. Both had exactly the same problem: Everything other than a browser seems to work fine, but...

Re: Screen Tearing Problem (Purportedly Unsolvable)

Thanks for the Emmabuntus suggestion. I'm right now just starting an MX Linux install. If it does not work, I'll try the Emmabuntus. If that doesn't work, I'll try Lubuntu, then Manjaro. If those don't work, I'll try Puppy Linux! :)

Re: Screen Tearing Problem

Well, OK, that sounds fairly final. I'll give up on Mint working on that computer. I will try other distro's to see what happens. There are some out there that claim to be for older computers.

Thanks to both of you for responding to my questions.

Re: Screen Tearing Problem

Yes, I do know that is an older computer, and not a very good one at that. That said, I did get a chance to try it out with Win Vista still running when it was brought to me, and it could do basic browsing, etc. just fine. I did not mention this before, but I did try xfce Mint first because it was a...
