Re: [SOLVED] Start-up-time more than fivefold ! Why ?

W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/i915/kbl_guc_ver9_14.bin for module i915 WHAT IS IT ? Assuming you have fully updated that 18.3 system it's to say that Ubuntu is lagging updating its firmware package.

Re: DNS lookup does not work to other subnets

It in fact destumps me a bit; the issue likely is that Windows clients register themselves with the DNS server upon receiving an address through DHCP (DDNS) whereas the Linux clients do not. Together with this needing "insecure updates" configured on the DNS server Windows-sides this becomes more of...

Re: DNS lookup does not work to other subnets

Linux Mint 19.1 64-bit; he already specified. What I however would like to know is WHAT was changed to Mint: employee desktops, with the e.g. DNS server for the local network still on Windows or at least on the same machine and system it used to be on? I.e., which DNS server are we talking about?

Likely impossible, with output paths switched in hardware when inserting a headphone.

Re: Linux not recognizing unallocated space as free space

Again, probably/possibly because you are using a Dynamic rather than Basic disk there. Type Dynamic Disk into Google if you don't know and don't know how to check; the very first hit explains it. Together with conversion advise: http://techgenix.com/basic-disk-dynamic-disk-convert/

Re: Linux not recognizing unallocated space as free space

"When [you] access the disk on Linux installation" meaning from the installer? I expect that your Windows partitions are "Dynamic" rather than "Basic" disks? That is, "LVM for Windows"? As fas as I'm aware no Linux systems support Windows' dynamic disks OOTB; requires lots of fiddling at best, will ...

Re: Start-up-time more than fivefold ! Why ?

Although I wouldn't have immediately expected a difference with 18, yes, if you definitively have no swap partition have that file read just "RESUME=none" (no spaces) and don't forget the sudo update-initramfs -u -k all.

Re: Upgrading from HDD to SSD, best way to clone drive?

If the SSD is precisely as large or larger than the HDD certainly the simplest approach is dd if=/dev/sdx of=/dev/sdy bs=100M status=progress from a Live system where /dev/sdx is the HDD and /dev/sdy the SSD. Make sure to not reverse them... Use sudo fdisk -l to be informed of device sizes in sector...

Re: 'error no symbol table'

Wow, seven megagigs...

It's supposedly grub that's complaining. Seeing as how you find your system to be "old" I suppose it's using MBR partitioning? Grub installed on /dev/sda? If so, try reinstalling it with sudo grub-install /dev/sda.

Re: Start-up-time more than fivefold ! Why ?

Check /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume; if it says "RESUME=UUID=<...>" and you have no swap partition (anymore) then edit it to "RESUME=none". If you do have a swap partition, make sure the UUID is correct; verify from the output of blkid . After you edit the file run sudo update-initramfs -u -k a...

Note, autofs is basically obsolete in these systemd days. See e.g. https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=290507#p1610717; be sure to use type "cifs" for Windows/Samba shares.

Re: Fuzzy icons

While it's certainly the case that 256x256 --- 32Nx32N for some whole number N --- scales better to 32x32 than 285x265, really size itself is the main issue here. Although graphics is not my thing per se, in the end image scaling is a form of digital signal processing, specifically downsampling, whi...

Re: Fuzzy icons

That is probably to say you saved it simply as a 285x265 PNG making Cinnamon scale it to the (again, say) 32x32 it needs for the desktop icon. What's important here is size: scaling a 285x265 picture down to 32x32 will introduce artefacts, even if you (as I rather doubt) were in fact designing using...

Re: Fuzzy icons

Although personally decidedly graphics challenged, the answer would seem to simply be to not use SVG, a vector graphics ("outline") format which when scaled down from the 285x265 I see in the screenshot to, what is it, 32x32 or so for the desktop icon shows the limitations of vector graphics. If you...
