Re: the nest door alarm that we bought is 10 second deleyed in picture

Re: the nest door alarm that we bought is 10 second deleyed in picture

There should be two modes of operation. 1. Access the camera remotely, to just look around the door area. This seems to be were more lag in the video was reported. 2. Have someone ring the doorbell, and have the other person answer it remotely on their device (phone, tablet, etc) to interact with th...

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

On project 14167 (0x21) right now, and its definitely higher than my norm—around 505~512K PPD. My average, since I did a reinstall and involuntarily got intel-microcode and a newer nvidia driver has been anywhere from 423-455 PPD.

Re: the nest door alarm that we bought is 10 second deleyed in picture

...quick search shows the nest products have known lag issues. Product states it needs 2MB/s (16mb/s?) connection for proper streaming to your device. Owners/reviewers have stated that the lag seems more pronounced when passively streaming the video. Try making an active call/conversation with a hel...

Re: Screensaver - 3 hours?

suicide king, It will respect the time delay you set per smurphos' instructions. However, if its like Mint 18.x, if you click on a new time selection in the dropdown list in the screensaver preferences, it will wipe it out and you'll have to issue the terminal command again. It won't change a visibl...

Re: Why does Linux Mint work when others don't?

One example would be netbooks running emmc drives. Some different distributions crash during install. Gallium OS is a okay little OS that would work on that. I use it on a Chromebook. Has its own simple updater to run, uses Synaptic as well. Only issue I've had with it is I'm too lazy to install Mr...

Re: How to Load Applet on Linux 19.1

Not trying to make a big deal out of it. OP already had run the clone process and somehow the directory structure for that applet is all botched for it. Was trying to help sort that out so it would simply work, and not have dysfunctional remnants around the other folders.

Looking in File system, I find / root/usr/share/cinnamom/applets/ Has two Folders-... That location is where the applets that you download/activate through the Mint Applets manager are installed. What you are trying to do is a user install. Your /.local directory should have been in your /home/rich...

Re: [SOLVED]scanner software interface

Parallels was a virtualization application. If that's what you need, there is Virtualbox in the Linux Mint Software Manager.

ps... Parallels is an Apple program; are you looking to dualboot with a Windows OS, or a Mac? (or are you currrently using Parallels w/Mac-Windows?)

Just tried this. 1. Install "git" sudo apt install git (this is why it likely didn't work for you, if you tried their instructions previously) 2. From terminal: cd ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets 3.
