Re: Cinnamon writes a lot of info to my ssd for nothing. Why?

This might not be relevant, but I noticed if you are using the wallpaper slideshow option it'll write a scaled version of each image to your home folder every time the background desktop changes. I have hundreds of images changing fairly quickly, but I don't worry about it. When I first got an SSD I...

Re: Going back to LM 18.3

I have 18.3 on one machine, and Mint 19.x on another. Despite the difficulties I keep thinking about trying to get my older machine to 19.x as the features in it are worth the hassle.

[SOLVED - kinda] lightdm doesn't start on boot after 18.3 -> 19 upgrade

I was running Mint 18.3, and it was perfectly fine, so I decided to fix it. After updating to 19 the system boots, and then the screen goes black. I hit ctrl+alt+F6 or F1, logon to the console, and after about 20 or so second later lightdm does start on ctrl+alt+F6 and I can logon as normal. Any ide...

Re: [SOLVED] SMB shares in fstab no longer mount after recent updates

Thank you. adding a bash script to the /etc/network/if-up.d directory does make the drives mount on boot. While everything technically works, something has changed, and there is still some undesirable side affects from that change. More specifically: - on boot there is an error stating "Failed to st...

[SOLVED] SMB shares in fstab no longer mount after recent updates

I had working network share mounts entered into my fstab file, and when the kernel was updated they changed the default version it mounts smb shares with, so I needed to specify the smb protocol version to correct this issue.

I marked the issue as solved because I didn't want to bother people too much, and having a work around was good enough for me. I was planning to look into the issue with Firefox more myself... That said, I like Firefox better and the fix worked! so I'm very happy and this is a much better solution. ...

For me an ideal image viewer: - Handles at least the common file types {*.jpg, *.png, *.gif} - Advanced from one image to the next by rolling the mouse wheel {other ways to go through images can exist, so long as the mouse wheel can be used as an option I'm happy} - When clicking on an image to open...
