Re: (SOLVED) Ideapad 530S Wifi not recognised after 20.1 install

Just a comment, no new suggestions:

I have almost the same Ideapad 530S, the AMD version, with the same wifi driver. And it works as it should.
Yes, having wifi power management off is mandatory. I also "dkms enabled" this driver, so it gets automatically re-included with kernel updates.

Re: Facebook Ad Blocking Techniques and Strategies

NextDNS is not something you run on your machine. You create your configurations on the site my.nextdns.io and then you specify this configuration on your device. I have made two configurations, one for more or less static computers (office iMac, laptop) and one for mobile devices (smartphone, table...

Re: Which kernel on LM 20.1?

If you're on Mint 20, you can already install kernel 5.8 from Update Manager - View - Linux Kernels
I installed it yesterday and it works well.

If it doesn't work, it's easy to revert to the old one.

Re: Mint and Win10 on separate HD's. Can't boot Mint

I would try two things: in BIOS, disable Secure Boot and check if there is a setting for boot order. If there is, move Linux Mint to first position (might be called Ubuntu). On my Lenovo laptop I had to do these. And every time I update the BIOS, the boot order gets reset with Windows10 first, and I...

Re: Apua Linux mint win10 rinnalle asennuksessa.

Tässä Lenovo Ideapad läppärissäni pitää varmistaa BIOS-asetuksista että Boot Order -listassa Linux-osio on ensimmäisenä.
Joka kerta kun tekee BIOS-päivityksen, Windows-osio on ekana, joten pitää korjata.
Lisäksi olen asettanut Secure Boot -option Off.

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: 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.
