Re: Remote desktop with 19.3

Getting the old Mint 18 (Ubuntu Xenial) version of Vino is what I ended up doing. You get Vino with a nice configuration panel, and it is quite stable for me. The old "desktop sharing" control panel is in Mints preferences and about the only configuration option it doesn't expose that you might need...

Has anyone got TAP style VPN to work through Network Manager?

I am interested to know if anyone has been able to get a TAP style OpenVPN connection to work in Linux Mint 19.3 through Network Manager out of the box?

Re: [SOLVED] Problem with KeePass2 on Kernel 5.3 and VirtualBox

Upgrading to VirtualBox 6.1 does indeed solve the problem.

[SOLVED] Problem with KeePass2 on Kernel 5.3 and VirtualBox

I am experiencing a crash of KeePass2 on Kernel 5.3 only when run on VirtualBox. When running on a live boot Mint system, KeePass2 runs as normal. When run as a VirtualBox guest, I get a crash (error log is below). The crash only happens on kernel 5.3. Not on 4.15. I first noticed this on two differ...

Re: nm-openvpn can't get to work

To clarify, my problem is with TAP. I can get network manager to connect to TUN style VPNs but not any TAP. It appears that even though I'm specifying a tap style adapter, that nm-openvpn is treating it as a tun. From the log (see 3rd last line): Apr 20 08:44:37 GoaSTv2 nm-openvpn[11148]: OpenVPN 2....

Re: Bug in mint repositories?

There was a pulseaudio update a while back that was subsequently pulled. You were probably one of the lucky ones that took the update and are now suffering the consequences. This looks like it was the case. If you're seeing something about 7.5 in your output, use this to fix the issue: apt install ...

Re: nm-openvpn can't get to work

I am having a similar problem - I can't get the built-in vpn through the net manager to work, even with imported ovpn files. Is there a trick to it? I would much rather get it working with built-in tools.

Is there a connection log I can view to debug?

Bug in mint repositories?

I am trying to do a game compilation and require libpulse-dev. It seems that all the pulse audio libraries in Tricia drew from Ubuntu's Bionic Proposed repository, but that the libpulse-dev draws from Bionic. This means to install libpulse-dev I have to downgrade the rest of my installation's pulse ...

I am using ssh to forward caja to a remote desktop and while doing so cannot use caja on any network location. It fails with the message "caja cannot handle ___ locations" where ___ is sftp, smb, or network. Is this a limitation of caja that it can't connect to a network location while displaying re...

Am I missing something?

I have Mint/Mate installed on my main computer, and have Mint/Cinnamon installed on my old laptop which is now my ham shack computer. Both of them are via VirtualBox. I have actually just switched my shack computer to Mate. Before I actually remove Cinnamon, though, I am wondering if I have been mis...

Re: Problems switching Cinnamon->Mate

Re: purge-old-kernels removed in 19, autoremove not working

Actually, apt-get autoremove does work to remove old kernels. The problem was that it wouldn't automatically remove any kernels which had been installed prior to the Mint 19 upgrade. Once enough kernel upgrades were performed post upgrade that all the pre-upgrade kernels were gone (manually removed)...

i had to read this three or four times to figure out just what you were asking...first off, apt-get autoremove AKA sudo apt autoremove is not a kernel remover I'm not an apt guru.

[SOLVED] purge-old-kernels removed in 19, autoremove not working

In Mint 19 the purge-old-kernels script, which was a fantastic way of pruning old kernels, was replaced and is basically just an alias now for apt-get autoremove. However, I am finding on my Mint 19 installation, that apt-get autoremove still completely fails to remove old kernels. The purge-old-ker...

In my case my Mint VM has a fairly small footprint (only 16G), so resto...

Self-solved. Linux kernel 4.15 and versions of vbox prior to 5.2.8 do not interact nicely, it seems. Upgrading vbox corrected the problem.
