Re: [Solved] Not working: dim screen and turn off after delay

The kernel update of today, to 5.4.0-52, apparently changed something. Or maybe just the reboot could have helped.
Issue resolved.

[Solved] Not working: dim screen and turn off after delay

Since a few days the dimming of the screen and turning it off does not work as defined in Power Management preferences. The screen just stays on even if it should turn off after 15 mins of inactivity (and dim after 10 mins). I don't know exactly when this behaviour started, so I don't know which upd...

Re: Installing SSD & Mint by removing one HDD

I briefly browsed through the relevant parts of the Maintenance and Service Guide http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03054480 My first take on how to do this would be: . Using the machine as-is, update BIOS to latest level . Create the Linux Mint install USB flash drive . Remove the disk from the...

Re: How Do I - Sync FireFox & Thunderbird

I would be wary of sharing the profile data from another disk. Big risk of running into conflicts. For Firefox, why not setup a Firefox account and do the syncing that way? You can select what you want sync: bookmarks, passwords, etc., even open tabs. For email (Thunderbird), use IMAP and sync via t...

Re: How to delete an account from Thunderbird?

Select the account in the list, right click on it, select Settings.
At the bottom, under the list of accounts and folders, you have Account Actions.
Select that and then select Remove Account.

Re: WiFi down after kernel upgrade. Mint 19.3

I'm using the rtw88 driver package from lwfinger, and it works very well for my adapter (RTL8822BE).
I gave it the "dkms treatment", so it gets automatically included when the kernel changes.

Re: Kernel 5.8.0 appeared today

Using GParted, I ran into this bug: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gparted/-/issues/111

I have now reverted to kernel 5.4 and everything is ok.

Bleeding edge might hurt, and this time it did.

Kernel 5.8.0 appeared today

Kernel 5.8.0 appeared today in Update Manager. Of course, after 30 seconds of thinking about it, I had to install it. Just to see if it works, and how. Newer kernel should be better, at least for new or newish hardware, and this Ideapad has an AMD CPU and graphics. Anyway, no problem with install an...

Re: Wifi on Tp-Link dongle

I think you need to install a driver for that TP-link dongle. Which model is it?
I have a model called T4U

Note, however, if you have booted from a USB stick, any changes like driver installation will be only temporary.

Re: Uusimman k3b:n (20.04.2) asennus?

Minusta tämän vuoden maaliskuun versio ei ole kovinkaan vanha. En tunne K3b -ohjelmistoa enkä tiedä mitä tärkeää on versiossa 20.04.2. Itselläni on Brasero asennettuna mutta CD/DVD -polttaminen on jäänyt vähiin viime vuosina. Jos kerran haluat käyttää KDE softaa, miksi asentaa Linux Mint eikä esim. ...
