Re: Running mint from 1 Terabyte USB stick

Can't see the point of putting /boot on a separate partition and with LM19.x you do not need a swap partition, it will use a swap file if no swap partition present. Keep it simple, / and /home partitions are all you need.

Re: Mapping network drives in Ubuntu from Windows domain (script)

First you need to install samba if it is not already installed. You can modify your fstab file to automatically mount network shares - there is some information here https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=157&t=290553 Or you could use a utility like autoFS which is explained here https://forum...

Re: boot options to load fstab with our without nfs NAS/network

You could add nofail as an option, this will mean that if the NAS isn't present, mint won't wait 90secs before timing out and then booting.

Code: Select all

192.168.178.44:/Multimedia/Images /home/thomsterdam/NAS/Images nfs _netdev,auto,nofail 0 0

No, and just seen it, current icon is not square, 285x265, I'll have a look at making it square. Thanks for the suggestion

Re: VLC on Linux Mint

SMplayer is the closest I've found to Winamp.
+1 on winamp, but try audacious, you can load winamp skins.

Re: What's your hardware history

having non-typists try to teach typing Back in the day (talking early '70's here), I did a touch typing course (manual typewriters) when I was in the RN. Never used it so lost the skills.

Re: Any way to update to an earlier Update?

All I can say is that timeshift/backintime haven't let me down yet, I've been up and down on LM19.0 <-> LM19.1 at least half a dozen times (a virtualbox problem with seamless mode) and it's not let me down yet. But I don't solely rely on that and every so often take image backups using redo. I'm of ...

Fuzzy icons

Recently found WPS office and I'm impressed, but I didn't like the icons so I made my own. Screenshot from 2019-03-21 19-42-13.png But in comparison to word/excel they are fuzzy. Generated the icons in corelDraw and exported as an svg file. If I look at the svg in the standard picture viewer it look...

applications to my HDD The short simple answer is no, applications generally install into /bin , /sbin or /usr/bin and support files, e.g. libraries in /lib . Configuration files/folders are normally hidden and live in your home folder. So there is no easy way to tell them to go somewhere else. And...

Re: Any way to update to an earlier Update?

does dmesg | grep error show anything useful. Intel 3rd gen here (T430) and zero problems.

PS - for next time install timeshift - it's helped me out more than once :wink:
