Re: Nemo confusion when overwriting files

Is this on your 19.3 with Cinnamon? I have never seen that pop-up dialogue look like that. I just checked 18, 18.3, and 19.2, and they all look pretty much like this: cp_test.png Is the picture you posted all there is in the pop-up? You don't see the three buttons at the bottom--cancel/skip/replace?...

Re: Cinnamon display refresh rate setting?

You have to go to the Xserver Display Configuration page where you changed the refresh rate to 60Hz. Then, (presuming you've already selected 60Hz, and clicked "Apply"), at the bottom right of that page, you have to click on "Save to X Configuration FIle." A small dialogue box will pop up. If you ha...

Re: Cinnamon display refresh rate setting?

Did you verify the /etc/X11/xorg.conf had your changes? Typically saves it to the "Screen" section and as a "option metamodes" line. Should be a line in that file that appears similar to this: Option "metamodes" "DVI-I-1: 1440x900 +2072+0, HDMI-0: 3840x2160 +3512+0, DP-0: 1920x1080 +0+0" --but, has ...

You are correct, it is a security measure, and the encrypted items are pruned out in your /etc/updatedb.conf file.

Are you a member, and logged in?

Have you visited before, and this is the first time you've had issues?

Not a Linux-related problem..does it on Windows 10 as well. Some forums have means of blocking member images unless you are signed in.

Re: Cannot resize when creating a partition for Linux Mint using Mac Disk Utility

Teddy, In Disk Utility, did you click on "view", and select show all? Was just curious because your video doesn't show much in they way of containers/volumes/etc. Give this a watch: https://youtu.be/EcRlrGpKGh8 And some light reading: https://support.apple.com/en-au/guide/disk-utility/dskutl14027/ma...

Re: Cannot resize when creating a partition for Linux Mint using Mac Disk Utility

Search on line for some guidance on setting up dual boot. Find search results that talk about disabling Journaling. I didn't take good notes when I did my a couple years ago, but I believe you need to get in to terminal, on your MAC, and disable Journaling, before you can re-size. You re-enable it a...

Re: Cannot resize when creating a partition for Linux Mint using Mac Disk Utility

Hi Teddy,

Good that you've already backed up your info. I believe you need to shrink your existing partition to create free space first, then create the linux partition(s) as FAT. Mac has "containered" the whole hard drive space-- so reduce its size first to give free space for you to work with.

Re: Is encryption tied to the motherboard?

So, what exactly do you see at start up? Do you get the grub menu screen (dual OS..do you see Windows as an option?) Or are you being prompted for a password before even seeing grub? Since your hard drive is encrypted, and you have seen the "Access-Your-Private-Data", you could try as was suggested ...

Re: Is encryption tied to the motherboard?

So are you saying you ran the hard drive encrypted withe old motherboard? Since your motherboard was just replaced, it should not have a BIOS password set on it..unless you explicitly told the repair person to put one in for you. Try booting a live session USB and see if the hard drive is visible (l...

Re: Is encryption tied to the motherboard?

Was this a dual boot with Windows 10?

If so, was it using TPM and BitLocker, or some such security program?

Can you provide make/model of the laptop, and any details about what was exactly installed on it?

Re: Folding@home-Team Linux Mint-76140

Came across this while I was researching motherboards... I've sort of been looking for a good used GeForce GTX980 to pair with my current one myself. Popular thought on the web seems to believe that mining cards are often times mildly under-volted, and run 24/7. Thus, supposedly less thermal stress...

Hi Netherprovinc3, I use the apcupsd tool. It’s just a basic tool, so I’m not too worried about updates, as it serve my needs. It’s used with basic config file and can be tested/tweaked/status-checked in terminal. I have an old APC PowerChute disc running around somewhere; there was something for Li...

It doesn't happen to you that when you start a folding project on the graphics card, a constant sound begins that I have no idea what it is, while in games that is not heard. Does anyone know why that is? Yes, likely fan noise..your GPU is being pretty heavily tasked while folding, especially if yo...

Re: Black boot screen with Tricia tty1

Hi hybris2,

Glad you were able to get in. Yes, a full root directory is going to give you grief. Good on you for figuring that out and correcting the partition size. Now put the old machine through its paces (as much as it can handle, anyway :lol: ) and see if everything you want to use, works.
