Re: Slowing down/freezing mint 19.3

I need some further advice. When the screen locks, I tried ctrl-alt-f2 service lightdm restart This fixes the problem with out shutting down and all services keep working. Sometimes I log out and back in to stabilise the display. Does this make anything about what might have gone wrong clearer?

Re: Slowing down/freezing mint 19.3

I can see nothing in logs and I am unaware of any system changes so my plan of action is:

1) Revert to previous Kernel
2) Restore last timeshift backup 29/10
3) Up grade to 20
4) Total reinstall

Any feedback on these steps.

All data is secure and already backed up,

Re: Slowing down/freezing mint 19.3

Would doing an upgrade to 20 help or make no difference?

Re: Slowing down/freezing mint 19.3

Thanks Karl,

I was thinking along similar lines. Until last week it was running without a problem and once rebooted it runs just fine. Was thinking of using Timeshift and rolling back 7 days to see if it was an update that caused the problem.

Slowing down/freezing mint 19.3

I have been having a problem over the last few days on a machine that has always been reliable. The machine runs 19.3 cinnamon and I have been holding off upgrading... well because it works and has been reliable. Last few mornings which is the only time I log into the machine I start browsing the we...

Re: android to linux connection file sharing

Yes just plug it in.

BUT make sure to put your phone into data mode, that option will come up on the phone after connection.

I love Calibre works well on all platforms.

Re: Network share address

I am assuming it is a network attached drive and not searchable.

Is it listed on your router?

If it is attached to a computer and shared from there its address will be that of the computer with the drive name attached.

How is it shared?

Re: Will not restart after suspend/

I have found that at least for the moment Cinnamon 20.0 is working properly. Mate 20.0 has always worked .

It is only one machine, the other two machines had no problems with 19.3 Cinnamon, or 20.0 Cinnamon .

Re: Will not restart after suspend/

I have tried Mate for the last week. It works exactly as it should. Monitors sleep and the computer goes into suspend; both restart when keyborad is touched. Having listened to the Mintcast episode I was interested to find others had similar problems but they had been resolved as updates rolled out....

Re: Ongoing Issue Mint 20 cinnamon new Install system non restart after suspend

Well after a week of using mate I can say it works as it supposed to. The monitors switch off and the computer goes into suspend and then restarts when the keyboard is pressed. I must say Mate does not seem enormously different to Cinnamon. After listening to Mintcast I have been thinking it may wel...

Re: backup files

It won't lose power, at least that is reliable.

If I get to impatient I might try drive swapping to speed it up. At the moment it doesn't matter it is just making a backup of a backup to store off site.

Re: backup files

Good point it is an older machine and yes external to external on USB 2.

My own impatience I guess.

[ SOLVED]backup files

I have about 3TB of files I need to backup.

I am using Luckybackup which I have always found reliable.

I have had to do a fresh backup from scratch and at the moment after 2 full days is only up to 15%.

Is it my impatience or is this rather slow?

Any suggestions for speeding up the backup?

Re: monitor no longer works mint 19.3 cinamon

Thank you. Clearly the updated kernel was the problem, booting from the previous kernel restored full function. First time that has occurred for me.

[ solved] monitor no longer works mint 19.3 cinamon

On my mint 19.3 cinnamon machine, one of my two monitors is no longer detected and the remaining monitor appears as default laptop. I tried changing drivers from the nvidia driver to an open driver, made no difference. I have Mint 20 also installed on this machine, when I boot into it both monitors ...
