Automatically Rescale Cinnamon on switching displays

I am running Linux Mint 19.3 on a laptop with a 4k display. I often use it while it is plugged up to a very large external 4k display. When I unplug the display, the desktop scaling on the laptop screen goes very small on the laptop display. I would like it to resize to a scale that is readable when...

Hello all, Im busy setting up and working out the issues with a dual boot configuration for a new Dell XPS 15 9550.

After searching, I was led to this thread on another forum: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2301071 This thread had the proper instructions to boot usin...

Re: Dell 9550 Mint Installation Can not see drive

I've tried disabling/enabling Secure Boot, enabling/disabling legacy boot settings,switching to ahci etc. etc. No luck there. In GParted, there is no dr...

Re: Dell 9550 Mint Installation Can not see drive
